Hey Eric! nice to see you about!

Ya, we are working on all types of crazy shit, Animated websites/commercial production/VFX for films/feature film production/short content!

lot's of stuff...not much camera stuff, I have all but given up, let the PRO's like CineForm and SIlicon Imaging do the hard part. I will reward them with money for the product! and maybe help with some of the design if I get a chance now and then. ;)

Hope all is well with you!

no, I don't think so...I don't have p2 cards so I downloaded a .mxf file from DVfilm...the viewer will not see it.. I'm not sure if the viewer can read this file or not..or if the viewer is not working...I have the latest viewer for panasonic and the usb drivers are loaded for the cam...??

Can you play an MXF files with Media Player? This is the best test if the P2 Viewer is installed correctly. However, Media Player is not MXF knowledgable, so follow these steps :

1) Right click on MXF and select "Open with..." and pick "Window Media Player"
2) the player will complain that it does know this extension, click "Yes" to play anyway.

If you system is setup correctly (P2 Viewer installed, DirectX9 etc.) the click will play (without sound and at the wrong aspect ratio, but it works.) Otherwise you have some software to install or upgrade on that PC.

When I do this procedure I get this:

Windows Media Player ERROR:
Cannot open. Please verify that the path and filename are correct and try again. (Error=80004005)

I get no option to play anyway...I take it the viewer and drivers are not installed correctly???
Thanks for you help on this...I have been installing, uninstalling,looking for patches...etc...

I have latest direct x ....and p2 viewer...not to sure what else I can do.

Chris,

Never touched one of these cameras in my life, but I have run the P2 Viewer and converted MXF footage with HDLink with no problem at all.

It seems to me that there's a possibility you have downloaded the P2 Viewer, but you have not downloaded the specific Windows drivers. You can get them from here.

Hopefully that will help?

thanks for your reply...but I have the drivers and installed for the hvx200,
the USB works fine and the install for both the viewer and the drivers went well..
this viewer will not see mxf files or allow aspect hd to convert...

This is bizzare..the answer is usually so simple it isn't funny, but I'm not laughing yet! There has to be something overlooked...there must be something on this xp pro sp2 system that is missing? I have actually tried uninstall and install procedures in different orders.....any other ideas are welcome...

Chris,

Are you sure you have the P2 Viewer program installed? I believe that is different than the camcorder drivers. If so, try reinstalling.

I had similar issues a few weeks ago, but installation of the P2 Viewer got me on track.

Keep us posted.... Since I have a successful install here, maybe I can answer more specific questions.
