Hi again, similar post to my previous but as some time has passed, thought I'd post. So, first question, when transferring video files from camcorder to Laptop, should I remove the SD card from the camcorder and plug it into the SD slot on the laptop, or is it ok to use the supplied USB cable and Panasonic software to transfer files? Is there any advantage to plugging the SD card in directly to my Laptop? Its a 32GB Class 10. Next, When I have transferred an AVCHD file to Laptop, even if I play the RAW file, it plays fine for a couple of minutes then starts to break up and cut in and out audibly. The video footage lags and stutters too. When I play this file back directly on the camcorders LCD screen, it plays perfect. The laptop is an old ish HP Pavilion G series, 4gb RAM, etc. Cheers All!
