I got my new HF11 last Friday, been playing with it the weekend.
I connected the camera using USB to my Vista x64 system, I set the camera to video playback, I power on.
I get a message on the screen that I must connect the power adapter.
The manual states you may need to connect the power adapter, I wonder what "may" means.
I connect power, and two removable drives show up on the PC, one for internal storage, one for the SD card.
On further experimentation I found that if I set the samera to picture playback, then I do not need external power, but then the video folder does not show up in Windows.
In video playback mode both the video and picture folder is visible.
I copy the internal drive contents to my machine, about 1.5GB of MTS files, using Windows Explorer, the transfer took more than 10 minutes, very slow.
I tried again, this time using robocopy, and the copy was a bit faster, but still very slow 1.553GB, 9 minutes 19 seconds, at 2.98MB/s or 23.84Mb/s.
That is a bit slower than the 24mb/s recording speed!
I am very dissapointed with the data ransfer rate between the camera and my PC.
Can any other owners comment on data transfer speeds?
