Hi guys. I got the Panason


Hi guys. I got the
Panasonic HDC-TM700 and am having a problem with it. I recall a few people here have one and love
it, so Im hoping you could help. I read
the instruction book and searched online but I cant seem to find anybody with
my specific problem so Im trying to find out if there is something wrong with

Basically Ive used it twice now, recording to the HDD at the
60p frame rate and everything else is on auto.
The first time while i was recording for a while (about 20-30 mins) it popped
up a message on the screen. I forget
what the exact message said, but it was something about DATA Processing, and it
took about 5 minutes for it to go away and then allowed me to record
again. That was frustrating b/c I missed
a lot of shots i needed. Then yesterday
I put it on a tripod to record a 30 minute ceremony, i pressed record,
confirmed it was recording and walked away.
I didnt turn it off until the ceremony was over 30 minutes later (so i
dont know if there was any messages). I
connected the camera to my computer and pulled the files off from the camera

The first thing i
noticed was instead of the ceremony being one 30 minute file, it was broken up
into 3 files. When i played it back on
my pc, the first file was 18 minutes, the second file is 5 minutes (and there
is a 3 second gap in the video), the last file is only 3 minutes (with another
3 min gap) and then the last 5 minutes of the ceremony are missing.

I am very frustrated with this and dont know why its
happening. If you could offer any help
or advice id really appreciate it.
