    Default Help with my PANASONIC NVGS17B

    I have a PANASONIC NVGS17B Digital Camcorder and I can't figure out how to get the fottage on my computer. On a few sites it says I have to have cables, but I can't find these cables or anything similar anywhere. What sort of cable do I buy and where from???
    Can anyone help me asap, I've just bought a whole new computer so the camcorder will work, and now I've found out I need to bu more stuff!
    Any help would be grately recieved, thanks in advanced.
    A very frustrated person xXx

    You need to get yourself a Firewire cable to connect your camcorder to your computer. Given that your computer is fairly new it should have a firewire port already built in. It looks like your camcorder also supports USB transfer but don't be tempted to use it. Firewire is widely recognised as being the number one choice for video transfer.

    Thank you so much! Can I pick one of those up anywhere? (Like any PC shops I mean)
    Once again thanks alot, I don't see why they couldn't just write that in the instruction manual!

    Very common and very cheap, any PC shop will supply you one.

    Good luck.

    Check your PC front and rear to make sure you don't already have at least one Firewire socket fitted. I'm not one hundred per cent certain but some companies and shops will tell you that your warranty is over if you open a new computer and start installing cards, memory or anything else. Phone the shop or whoever you bought from and ask them what the situation is. I'll have to wait until March next year before I can install a second hard disk into my PC once it's come back from HP.
