You need some video player software that supports MP4 video streams. Google MP4 players. Most are free.

You could always try a reputable local electronics store, or an on-line retailer such as ebay.

This Panasonic DV tape camera is similar to Sony DV cameras. It has a Firewire 4 pin DV output (which Sony calls iLink). Does your laptop have Firewire (unlikely)?

The camera has an SD card slot for a card of up to 2 GB in size (non-HC, FAT16) but if I remember this is for still photos only, IIRC the USB connection cannot transfer video, Check your owners manual

The camera uses a compressed Sony/Panasonic PCM DV video format that needs a program that can read that format and convert that format.

My suggestion would be to send your tapes to a conversion service and have them saved onto DVDs or USB Stick one time. Or, find a friend with an older Macintosh with Firewire and iMovie, transfer and convert your video, and then move the files to your PC after

If you have a Firewire port, It may require a driver update

Or you can transfer the video through an external adapter but adapters with Firewire are impossible to find any more.

If you ever have trouble to play ASF video file on the computer, you can turn to ASF video player for help. Leawo Blu-ray Player is a 100% free software. Arming your Windows computer with this program will guarantee all your ASF files are supported. Besides being as the best ASF player for Windows 7, the Windows version is also available on Windows XP/Vista/8/8.1/10, etc.

Might be still available from Panasonic, on their web site. If not I wouldn't trust the sellers.

There is an audio socket, 3.5 or 2.5 mm socket near the front.

I shall only reply to one of the multiple queries you have made on the same subject.

I would suggest either the mfr, or Ebay.

I would also suggest you take better care of your possessions.

If you mean to download a full file , just copy the files from the DVD and load into your computer , the hard disc.
But if you want to copy DVD into to write another DVD( copy) the use a software( NERO) to copy and write. Load the DVD to copy and click the nero link for copy then after the image is made onthe computer you must remove the disc and insert the DVDRW to be written.
Do as it commands on the software.

Unfortunately, Panasonic does not support the VDR-M70 with Windows 7 or 8. See the FAQ here: https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/VDR-M70.html?t=manuals . The camcorder was released with drivers for Windows 98 (second edition), Me, 2000, and XP.

If you have Windows 7 Pro, you can check if your system supports a virtual computer environment. If you can load a virtual OS, enable virtualization in turn on/off Windows features. (Go to the Control Panel under Programs. Then click on the link. Scroll through the list to find the desired line and check the box.) The XP mode software is available here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8002 . Install the program (including setting up the disc space needed). Then launch the OS and install the software and camcorder driver in the XP mode. Use the directions for installing the VDR-M70 with a computer from the manual, starting on page 130: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camcorder/om/vdr-m50pp_en_om.pdf . I haven't found an online source for the Panasonic software download for the VDC-M70. Panasonic's recent software is here: https://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/soft/download/ .

I hope this helps and I wish that I had better news for you.

(I did run XP mode on a Windows 7 Pro desktop computer with an Intel i5 chip and 8GB of memory. I put in a second hard disk to ensure sufficient space for the second OS. It was a convenient way to maintain support for some older hardware and software.)

Sounds like the screen has either failed or the wiring to it has got a dry joint or become disconnected.

Check your connections first. Usually a camera comes with software to allow transfer from camera to computer. If it has worked before, then there is a connection problem now. Windows media player supports many formats of video. Each format type is determined by the file extension, for example .mpg .mts .avi etc. If the camera records in an uncommon format, you may need to load a different CODEC (Compression/decompression program).
See here for all formats that windows media player supports:-

The Panasonic PV-GS35 will let you record digital media to the mini DV cassette if the other video source has a DV input/output connection. Then you use the 4-pin to 4-pin Firewire DV cable, PV-DDC9 . This cable is available from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/LETO-FireWire-Panasonic-Camcorder-PV-DDC9/dp/B00MLQVMSK , and other vendors. The digital camera doesn't have the S-video input needed to record from most other sources.

For information on the digital dubbing feature, see the manual starting on page 42. Panasonic has the manual on the product support page: https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/PV-GS35.html . The current link to the manual is ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camcorder/om/pv-gs19_en_om.pdf . See page 13 of the manual for the location of the DV port.

I hope this helps.

Have you looked at the information and instructions contained within the manual ?

.Prg files are database files. They could be associated with an indexing system for that camera. They are not in and of themselves a video file.
