Summary: This video camera was a gift from my mother-in-law. For 3 years I have been trying to decifer/troubleshoot how to make copies of the disks onto the computer and then to DVD's. I read the manual through and through, nothing. I called Panasonic and a non-English speaking man with bad reception walked me through some things. I was then told that software came with my camera in order to copy and make the DVD's.
Summary: I absolutly HATE this camcorder! Couldnt upload my videos. and 3 years later the videos i recorded DO NOT work on anything but the stupid thing and i finalized the discs! ugh - dont waste your time or money!!!
Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing this camera. I am very disappointed with it. I have had it for several years. The vdr-d100 model does not come with software (the vdr-d200 does come with software) I purchased the software seperately. It is a HUGE hassel to import the video to the computer and then to burn a DVD. I do digital editing with pictures and video so I am pretty good on the computer and I have such a difficult time getting the video imported.
It is the most faulty electronic device I have ever bought

Summary: Oh, I cannot believe, spent about $500 or more for this and it became unusable exactly after its 1 year warranty period. The disc eject does not work any more and Panasonic says it would cost me $260 or more to repair it, and of course now you can buy a new one now with that money since electronic items get cheaper with time so much. This is the last item for me from Panasonic. I thought it was a good brand and that is so wrong!!!
