Hello bobcat:
No, I was referring to just operating the zoom, and it making a noise. I usually havent heard it on other camcorders, and wasnt sure if that would end up being recorded...In the little bit that I have played with it, it doesnt seem like that sound is getting recorded ( maybe because the sound is getting muted...)

I havent still run into the muting issue, but have updated the firmware last night anyways.
No Raj...

The noise is happening because this was how the camera was released...
A firmware was released to fix this problem, along with improving auto focus.

My zoom makes no noise "after" the firmware update...

I just got my DXG yesterday and I'm really impressed with it
Unfortunately, the camera will not let me write to the SD card from my computer.
Has anyone found the solution to this problem yet??
Soooo....
Did anyone find the solution to the SD card problem yet? ;-)
You "might" have missed the posts which stated

-Panasonic has a program to format SD cards, and this worked for one individual...
-Formatting the card with the correct format (I think it's supposed to be FAT, not FAT32)
-You could be using a card the DXG doesn't like or support. Please advise us on your progress, there Richard.

FYI I have a class 6 APACER 8 gig SDHC and it works flawlessly...
I think I formatted in FAT, although I don't remember.

If you don't already, get yourself a card reader and try this-it works.
The camera should properly format the card for you-as it has this feature.

You may want to invest in a better card?

There is an option in the setup menu to allow writing to the card.

Right Nick, but he wants to format the card.
The camera automatically writes to the card when you are recording.

No worries mate! It should work...

In the mean time I am going to retro fit a Nikon e63 Wide Angle lens onto the DXG I have!!!

I found the solution! Don't format that card! Don't buy a new one! Go to the calibration menu, select "Default Setting", and select "Read/Write" under "Default Mass Storage"!!!! IT WORKS!!!

O.k...You'll have to make sure of two things

1.) Make sure you don't mistake the blue for the green on your projector...

2.) Make sure you popped the component HD cable from your camera ALL the way in.
I didn't do this the first time and I also got green..

This will work.
Jiovanni,

Thanks, I could have sworn I had the cable pushed in all the way, but I must not have. I tested this again, and it worked!

Yup, I knew it! When I first hooked this up I thought that as well, it surprised me just how far you have to push it in for it to "click" into place...Right on!
