SUBJECT: DV STUDIO 2 FOR ACQUISITIONHi
I have a Panasonic NV-DS15 and received the following software with it: DV Studio 2 for Acquisition.
When I first connected the camera to my PC via the Digital Still Picture output, the connection (serial port) worked fine. However, the connection didn't work after awhile and I keep getting the error message telling me to check my connections.
The readme file has also warned of this problem and I have followed the suggestion to check the camera connections and turn it off and then back on.
I have also reinstalled the DV Studio 2 software.
Nothing seems to work.

DV Studio 2 does not work there is a problem with the software. I have used other products such as VideoStudio 6 which is compatible with Panasonic DV camcorders and DV VCR. The product is from Ulead - www.unlead.com - trial versions are available so give it a try

SUBJECT: Re: DV STUDIO 2 FOR ACQUISITIONI am looking for any software that is able to communicate with my Panasonic DS38 and capture still pictures. I have lost CD with original software provided by Panasonic (DV Studio 2). I have downloaded Ulead's software Photo Explorer 6.0 and Video Studio 6.0 recomended by you, but it seems to work only with Sanyo and Canon. I am looking in the whole internet for drivers but have no success. Do you have any idea what can I do then?

SUBJECT: DV Studio 2 and NT4 - it CAN work sometimes.I have a Panasonic NV-DS15 with DV Studio 2 and a PC running NT4.
Initially, DV Studio worked fine except that it would fail to transfer the full picture data.
Eventually, I found that it would work - albeit slowly - if I set the COM port transfer speed to 19200. This worked. At 38400, it failed.
So, if you have NT4 or Windows 2000, try setting the speed to 19200. Or 9600, if necessary.

SUBJECT: Re: DV STUDIO 2 FOR ACQUISITIONI also get this problem. I'm using an NV-DS38 with DV Studio 2 under Windows 2000 proffessional.
The error I get is:
"Unable to communicate with DV equipment. Please check that the cable is connected and that the DV equipment is turned on. Then, restart connecting."
It works fine on the fast preview mode but when I switch to full acquire mode I get the above error approximately half way through grabbing the image. It doesn't even happen in the same place, it seems quite random.
So far the only solution I've found is to set the connection speed to 9600 (although this sometimes doesn't work either).
If anyone has a solution please let me know.

SUBJECT: Re: DV STUDIO 2 FOR ACQUISITIONYou can fix the problem by setting program compatibility to win 95 and then disable visual themes. This is on XP so should work on 2000 as well.

Make sure that your Windows verion matches that of the software. Also make sure that you have no PalmPilot or similar software installed. If this isn't the cause the reinstall the COM port(s) by highlighting them in the Windows Device Manager and selecting Remove, then restart the PC and Windows will find new hardware. This should reset the COM ports back to factory default. 9 times out of 10 this cures the problem.
Stating that software doesn't work simply because it didn't on your PC is a little rash. I also disagree that VideoStudio would work on it's own asdoes not have the necessary protocols to communicate with the camcorder with the serial cable.
A tenner to you including postage. Email me and I will give you my address.
You can email me on that one, but with regards VideoStudio and similar, they can't communicate with the camcorders as they don't have the programing to do so. Drivers however, don't exsist, this is the job of Dv Studio.
Short of using DV Studio, since you have no memory card you would have to use a FireWire card on the PC, but not all DV editing software is capable of capturing stills as they are aimed at video editing.
DV Studio is a no go for Windows 2000. FireWire for you my friend.
NT system, just another Windows 2000 version i'm afraid. You're in the same boat as Franco, Firewire.
As you say, this is a transfer speed problem. Your solution is a good one and one that will continue to help, but the underlying problem is caused by the COM port settings determined by Windows. Something has changed the COM port settings on the PC so you will need to reinstall the COM port on your PC.
(follow-up) Just read your second post. Didn't know you had an SD card slot, looks like you've found your next best solution, although you can buy the memory card readers on their own.
Well found on Windows XP. Compatibility also works when set to Win'98 mode, but there is no Compatibility mode in Windows 2000 :-(
Hola, Software cannot be downloaded from the internet for Panasonic videocameras. You must contact Panasonic Espania (www.panasonic.es or 090-215-3060)
Is this because you are using old software. Have you tried DV Studio2?

SUBJECT: Re: Answers to all of you. FAO. STEVE, MICHAL etc.Hi Steve,
I bought Panasonic camcoder NV-DS33 many years ago.
I also bought cables and software Panasonic DV Studio Version 1.1.
I was very satisfied with software and it worked with no problems when I used WIN NT 4.0 and WIN 2000. Now I bought new PC with WIN XP, but I could not install DV Studio anymore correctly. I could not make connection between PC and camcoder (no COM port is detected).
I would like you to help me how to solve the problem.
Thank you very much in advance.
