How to Transfer a Panasonic PV GS250 Video to a PC


The Panasonic PV GS250 stores photos and video on either mini-DV tape or in its Micro SD storage card. Users can access and transfer their footage to a PC using the USB connector cable that comes standard in the camera’s package, along with MotionDV Studio, which allows you to preview and capture footage from tape. To transfer footage from the Panasonic PV GS250 to PC, you must first install the USB driver using the CD-ROM provided with the camera package.
