Okay, to make it short, I have some footage on my camcorder that I want to put onto my computer. The model number is PV-GS36 and its a panosonic, and I have a sony laptop and its a PC if that helps. Oh and its windows xp. This is what's happening: 1. I put the USB cord into the computer and I connected it o the camcorder. I made sure the camcorder is turned on and on PC mode 2. I plug it in, and I get the "dun dun" sound when you plug in any USB device. Then at the bottom right it gives me an eject device thing and it says that the camcorder is working properly. So far so good right...? Here's whats happening though I go to the "my computer" so I can download the video from the camera to the computer...but theres no icon on the "my computer" folder that says there's even a camcorder plugged in! I'm like wtf, it says its plugged in at the bottom right of my screen. So what's happening.... This is what I do to get pictures from my digital camera and it works good for that. Is it different for videos? Oh and if you need more information just ask, I should be able to supply all the info needed. ThankS!!!!!!
