Hello, I have the Panansonic GS35, and I'm using their MotionDV software, and am unable to capture the video I've recorded onto my computer properly.

I would think this would be plenty to handle this sort of thing?
I've been trying for hours and hours, basically all day to work this out. It's quite frustrating. ):
