Is your camera showing in device manager? have you the correct drivers for it?

Hi thanks for your responce .yes window loaded all the drivers and it does show on device manager. the connection is by means of a firewire I am wodering if that may be at fault .i am about to check that and get back

Even though Windows 7 laoded the driver, might be worth a look on Panosonic website to see if there are others with same problem.
