I found out that the file structure is .AVI - I basically rename the .MOD files to .AVI in a DOS window, and they work fine ( Using VLC Media Player). Basically, access your camera like a Hard Drive from your PC, copy and paste your .MOD video files ( don't worry about the .MOI's, I don't know what they do, and they don't affect the play or sound of the video ), then rename them from either WIndows Explorer, or a Dos window, to a .AVI file extension. They play perfect for me. I tried using the Videocam Suite 1.0, but it is JUNK, and won't work with my XP Media Edition on my Dell anyway, the manual states that as well.

I have the same camera, and after spending frustrating time w/ Panasonic, Apple, Crutchfield.com support and clerks in Best Buy, etc...the fact is that the camera is currently not supported by iMovie for automatic import. Having said that, there is a workaround, which has been posted in numerous other forum topics, which is the following:

You will need to convert that format into a DV format that imovie can use.

MPEG Streamclip (http://www.alfanet.it/squared5/mpegstreamclip.html) is free and Apple's QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component http://www.apple.com/quicktime/mpeg2/
is about $20.00. They are the tools that you need to download to convert these files.
Once you have done that, export to DV Stream (.dv) and import it into iMovie.

So you download both programs from the websites above. When you connect the camera by its USB2 cable to the Mac, it will come up on the desktop as a hard drive. Open the folder where the video files are kept, and you will see files with both .mod and .moi extensions. Open Streamclip and drag the .mod files into the main window and it will open the video clip. Next, choose Export to DV in the file menu, and export it to whatever folder and with whatever name you want. Finally you can import this .dv file into iMovie.

It's a bit of a pain, but I hope Apple will at some point update iMovie to deal w/ these kinds of camcorders, as they get more popular. Lastly, there are many technical aspects of converting these files, as you'll see in Streamclip. I don't know the ins and outs, but found the 'remove interlacing' gave me a better final video file. You can play w/ the conversion settings and see...
Good luck!

Apparently the software that Panasonic sent with my video camera is not compatible with Windows XP Service Pack 3. The solution is spending $79 on another software. Not happy about it, but grateful for your exper that helped me get this resolved. Thanks.

Panasonic SDR-H40P Camcorder, is there any way to just used the battery instead of AC adapter to transfer files to PC?


No, it is designed that way as there is a danger of file corruption if the power fails part way through a transfer.

How download movies to my pc


You can download video to your computer using the included USB cable. However, your camera will first need to be on AC power to make the transfer, so take the battery out and hook up the AC power cable to the adapter to the DC power cable to the camera, then turn it on. You can now transfer videos to your computer using the camera's interface, once the USB connection is made.

I cannot copy and upload my recorded video..how can i transfer the video to my computer?


Hi, video can be transferred to your computer from the camera by using the USB cable that came with the camera. Just hook the cable up to the camera and the computer, and then you can transfer files to your computer by using the screen and joystick on the camera.

The only requirement is that the camera has to be on AC power when you transfer files, so you'll have to remove the battery and set up the AC power cable and DC power cable before you can transfer any files. If you try it on battery power, the camera's screen will tell you to put it on AC power.

Uploading video to Mac


You can't transfer videos through USB. You will need a Firewire 6-pin cord and use it to connect from your MAC to the Camcorder. Only then you can transfer videos.
