❍ 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

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

image files on your computer, make copies of them first, and use the copied
file, retaining the original.
