    I have a Panasonic HD Video Camera (HDC-SX5P). The installation disk says
    that it will only work with Home Edition or Professional Edition of Service
    Pack 2, not Media Edition.

    I tried to install the disk (HD Writer 2.0E for SX/SD) anyway and it did not
    work. Is there an easy way to get my videos from the video camera to the PC
    without changing my operating system to Home Edition?

    I'm very computer illiterate, so a simple explanation would be GREATLY
    appreciated.

    As far as I know, Windows XP Media Center Edition is installed over
    Professional Edition, so there *shouldn't* be a problem. However, just
    because thats the case doesn't mean there won't be problems. I tried
    installing the update from MCE2004 on my desktop to MCE2005 by a DVD disk
    provided by Microsoft. I ran into a problem where the computer said MCE was
    not installed. After going through customer service, they said there's a
    workaround if that occurs and it was to find the setup file which bypasses
    the check to install the program. For that, I had to go open
    "/I386/WinNT32.exe".

    Not knowing how the CD is laid out, with that disk in the drive, look
    through the folders for installation applications. Some installation files
    will have the icon of the program show up instead of a Windows
    setup/installation icon, so if you look at the icon of the screen that comes
    up when you insert the disk, that may help you to find the correct file.

    Hope that helps!
