  • Panasonic SDR-H60 camcorder

    I have a Panasonic SDR-H60 camcorder and I can't seem to download the date and time of the recordings. I have the date and time turned on and showing in the viewfinder, and when I re-play the recording on my camcorder the date and time is shown. However when I download to my computer (in mpeg format) the date and time disappear from the recordings. Can anyone help please?
