    Default PC fails identifying Camcorder

    I am new here, this is probably very common. MY PC identifies my camcorder, Panasonic NV-GS300 as a removable disk. What can be done? Thanks, Amos.

    How have you connected the camcorder to the computer, was it using USB or Firewire? For a Mini DV camcorder you should only use Firewire.

    My camera is a casset camera. I am connected by a USB2 cable .
    I used this setup before and the camera was identified.
    Can you help?

    One of my cameras is a Panasonic aswell and the only way I connect it to the computer is with a Firewire cable. It has a 4 pin connection at one end and a 6 pin connection at the other end. The 4 pin goes into the camcorder and the 6 pin (flat connector) goes into the Firewire socket on the computer.
