Transferring Memory Card Images to a Computer Optura 500

With the supplied USB cable and Digital Video Software, you can browse and archive images or arrange still images for printout. For details, refer to the Digital Video Software Instruction Manual.

Users of Windows OS can also transfer images to the computer by simply pressing the (print/share) button.

  • Do not disconnect the USB cable, open the memory card cover, remove the memory card, change the position of the TAPE/CARD switch or turn off the camcorder and computer while data is being transferred to the computer (while the camcorder's card access indicator is flashing). Doing so may damage the memory card's data.
  • Operation may not work correctly depending on the software and the specifications/settings of your computer.
  • The image files on your memory card and the image files saved on the hard disk drive of your computer are valuable, original data files. If you wish to use image files on your computer, make copies of them first, and use the copied file, retaining the original.
  • Make sure that camcorder and computer are not connected with a DV cable before connecting the camcorder to the computer using the USB cable. Otherwise, the computer may not operate properly.
  • We recommend powering the camcorder from a household power source while it is connected to the computer.
  • Refer also to the computer instruction manual.
  • Users of Windows XP and Mac OS X:
    • Your camcorder is equipped with the standard Picture Transfer Protocol  (PTP) allowing you to download still images (JPEG only) by simply connecting the camcorder to a computer via USB cable without installing the software from the DIGITAL VIDEO SOLUTION DISK.
    • With the OPTURA500, make sure that [ CONNECT] is set to [STANDARD] to use the PTP function.
