Welcome to eCoustics Nancy!

Is your Panasonic use a SD card?

If yes, you can buy a internal card reader for you PC.

I use this one:

You put it in a 3.5" drive compartment!

Highly doubt that the Panasonic would have a SD card.

The Panasonic camcorder should have a Firewire port. You'll need to have a Firewire port on your PC. Most PCs don't have such a port.

Otherwise, you'd need to buy a video capture card for your PC and connect up using the included miniplug to composite video+audio cable.

I know they do. The newer ones do have a SD slot.

The older mini DV ones do not.

Hers is a mini DV camcorder. Perhaps you missed that detail in her original post.

Without the model, it's hard to tell!

Too many time they don't list the model!

That's true, but I know that the miniDV camcorder generation did not have SD cards. SD cards are for the newer generation of camcorders. I have a fairly "new" Panasonic miniDV camcorder. At the time I was buying it, the other choice were the ones that wrote directly to miniDVD discs and the microMV tapes.
