Panasonic NV-GS250: Problems downloading video to PC

Last response: in Digital Camera

I have a Panasonic NV-GS250 MiniDV video camera. Over the years I've captured some 25 hours of raw video, which I now want to transfer to my PC.

The software supplied by Panasonic is however not helpful in this respect. I gather from browsing on the internet that it is widely considered to be utter crap so I appear not to be the only one with this experience.

Is there any freeware that will help me import the raw video to my PC? I don't want an editing software but rather just something that helps me get the material onboard in some convenient format.

Grateful for any thoughts from the community.

Best regards,

Are the movies on a memory card? if they are you can transfer them directly

I'm afraid not, they're all on MiniDV tapes so I need to find a way of transferring them from this format to the computer.

Radio shack used to sell a mini tape player, maybe E-Bay
