Ulead video studio 11

Can anyone help me please. I am not to technical I’m afraid.

I am running ulead video studio 11 and my had no problems with this programme with my old camera which used dv tapes. I think it worked with a firewall connection connected to the back of the PC and then plug it directly into my camera.

But my new camera Panasonic HDC-SD9 whch downlaods via a usb port When I try to capture it through ulead studio it doesn’t reconize it.

Do I have to download it first with HDD writer softwear and then capture it and then reasave it as a AVI file save it and then edit in ulead studio 11 or is there anyway I can do it straight from the camera.

Any help would be appreciated.
Many Thanks Sue

Don’t start up any video softwares… Plug in your camera via usb. Then turn on your camera. Windows should come up and say that it detected a device, and offer a list of possible softwares for you to choose from. Select your Studio 11 software and see if that works. If not, you may have a switch on your camera which takes you from taking video, to video playback. On my camera, I have to select the video playback mode, before my computer detects my camera. You should have instructions that came with your camera.

Thank you so much it works.
