I did that yesterday and decided it was the machine being stupid. So in revenge I put Vista on it.

You know that meme of the kid on the bicycle and puts the stick in the spokes? That's me right now.

JFC. I'm surprised the PC didn't explode.

It's a laptop from 2005 and has 1GB of memory. It's got a 1.0 experience score. It's not happy.

And neither am I so I'm putting 7 on it overnight. Let's see what I wake up with.

An update to the laptop story: I put 7 on and it...works. But it was all for naught as it turns out the I can't get the video off the DV camcorder with that either.

Good-ish news: I found the OG XP discs that came with the laptop and I'm debating going that route. What's the worst that could happen, right?

Finally: I'm pissed that Panasonic doesn't offer the software on their website for the camcorder. There are updates galore but that's it, no software. I can't find any website - even dodgy ones - that has it. Stupid old technology.

Which model / series of cam? I may be able to assist.

I'm almost positive it's the PV-GS300 but I'll check when I get home. I know the software I'm looking for is the MotionDV STUDIO.

If it's that one, I think that's identical to my old one. I should have the disc too.

:shock:

That would be amazing. Would also help the poor laptop out because it's just hating life right now, jumping from OS to OS. :)

So it's the PV-GS320, not the 300.

Found it. Yep, it's the disc for MotionDV Studio 5.3.

I'll work on either copying off the zip files or getting a disc image. It'll need to wait until I'm at work though, apparently we have no working disc drives in our house :lol:

I'll PM you when I have something ready.

That's amazing, thanks so much.

And I feel you on the drive thing. The only drives in the house are on the main computer (for ripping movies for Plex) and the old laptop.

I am considering a hard defrag of my laptop. My only question is how?

for some reason when I open folders lately it'll show me the files and slowly start deleting the file information as it works down the screen. once all of it is 'deleted' it'll refresh and it'll be there like nothing happened. I'm beginning to think this thing is cursed.

unrelated to the laptop issue above as this is the desktop.

Got a big slow hard drive? It's probably trying to refresh the file details and FLAC files are rather large. Does it happen with smaller files too? If it does, does it refresh quicker?
