    Hello,

    I've just purchased a Panasonic GS120 after hearing the comments from people here and I've just recorded some stuff and want to transfer that to my PC. The DV-Studio software bundled with the camera seems to only allow me to capture a single frame from the tape.

    Sorry for the silly question, but how do I capture the entire thing and make an Mpeg/Avi etc .. ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Dean.

    Thanks for your replies .. I'll get hold of a Firewire cable tomorrow, and I've got a firewire socket in my laptop so that's good news.

    I take it I will require different software to capture the video then ? Do you know if Vegas Video will be okay to use ?

    Thanks again,
    Dean.

    If you are capturing to a laptop then you may well need a 4 pin to 4 pin firewire cable instaed of the more normal 6 pin to 4 pin for a PC.

    Sony Vegas is an excellent capture and editing programme but some say a little complicated for a beginner and most say it's quite expensive - but if you already have it - give it a go.

    But if you are going to buy the Pinnacle Studio 9 and Ulead VideoStudio 8 are both good packages at reasonable cost.

    Dean,
    If you have got XP then you can use the Windows Movie Maker to capture dv.
