A high school teacher I work with is having trouble transferring footage from his Panasonic HDC-HS300 SD/HDD Hybrid to his iMAC, wondering if anyone can shed some light?
He usually just drags files from the camera to his computer, but that no longer works (see below). I suggested trying to capture using FCP (he has 6.0.6), that won't work either (see below).
Initial Issue --
Teacher: I am unable to transfer video to the Mac or my PC it just says "please wait" on the lcd screen until it says "remove usb cord". "
I suggested trying a different cord.
Second Issue --
Teacher: "You were right about the cord for the camera. A gray cord seems to be
working better than the black one. It now recognizes it and the clips
pop up in final cut pro. However I can't get them to transfer. I
followed all of your steps in the word document and everything works
up until step ii. e. As I pasted below.
e. File > log and transfer – this transfers the footage from camera to
computer and saves it as a Quicktime file
i. If you connected everything correctly, all the video files on the
camera should pop up
ii. You can watch them by selecting the one you want to watch on the
left side, and then using the controller buttons on the right side
iii. When you find the one you want to transfer, select it on left
side, name it what you want on right side and then hit “Add clip to
When I click on the clips and try to play them, they won't play. When
I add the clips to the queue to import, the status reads idle and then
"error, no data". "
