    Default Help with Panasonic NV-GS120GN

    Hi,

    I purchased this camera a while ago without being fully aware of the lack of convenience it has.

    I am trying to get video footage from it and am finding it very difficult.

    From what I can gather my laptop (compaq nx6120) has firewire/IEEE 1394, they are the same arent they?

    anyways, i have this cable which has one end which will fit in the camera in the "dv" hole but then the other end fits no where in the laptop.

    I am hoping that its just a matter of a different cable?? with the same connection on each end??

    This is frustrating me greatly as I hate having no idea what im doing.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Firewire cables are 4-4 pin and 4-6. Don't even think about USB.

    i have a firewire cable but am having trouble working out where to put it. My laptop seems to fit the 4-4 as does the video camera. what am i doing with the 4-6? where should it plug in

    You need a 4pin to 4pin (described as 4-4 pin by Mihai) firewire cable.
