Does the main job, but can't use to connect & retrieve via USB
on 2 July 2009
I ordered 2 of these batteries for my Panasonic Lumix TZ7, they both work fine in terms of providing the power to take photographs; videos etc. However I have been trying to retrieve the contents of the SD card from the camera via the USB cable to my PC and it appears the camera will not synchronise with the PC unless it contains an original battery!!
This isn't so much of a problem if you've got time to give the original battery a bit of a charge and then use that, or if you've got an external reader for the SD card, but this may hinder things like viewing pictures on a TV screen directly from the camera. I haven't tested this last bit though!!
