How to download Photofunstudio software for Panasonic Lumix Lx5?

Hello,

I bought a Pansonic DMC Lumix-LX5 a year ago in Japan and installed Photofunstudio that came with the camera on my computer. However, last month I have to reinstall window so the Photofunstudio was gone. I want to reinstall Photofunstudio to my computer but unfortunately, I still can't find the CD-rom that came with the camera.

What should I do? Is there a way to download Photofunstudio online? Or do I have to buy a cd-rom again?

I have visited this page ( http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/photofunstudio/index.html ) and still can't find the download link anywhere. I only found the links to update the existing software. Where exactly should I click to download it?

Also, as I bought my camera in Japan, would the english version of Photofunstudio be compatiable with my camera?

Thank you very much.

I have the Panasonic Lumix CD to download on my computer. Nothing happens when I insert the disc.

Please help me to download this software for my Luminex camera.

Thanks,

YR

Assuming this is Wndows PC, XP/W7, you may have autorun disabled. Just had a look at my disc; it is a DVD not a CD. Assuming you actually have a DVD drive, if it will still not autorun, then put DVD in, use Windows Explorer/My Computer to look at the DVD, you will see  InstMenu, double click on it and things should start to happen.

I bought a new PC with Windows 8, soon to be windows 10 on it.  I tried moving photos from the old PC but the Panasonic software does not work on windows 8. Is there a panasonic version out for windows 8?

I know this is an old thread, but I MIGHT have some info to help folks.

The used DMC-FX45(40) I bought used didn't come with the PhotoFun software.  The Panasonic website is rather useless.

So what I did was find the CD that came with my old FZ28, installed the old version of the program, and tried it out.

It acted up a bit on Windows 7 Pro, even in Compatibility Mode. I searched and searched and finally found a link that has a patch for the program:

http://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/dsc/download/index.html

SO FAR it seems to make the program work with newer versions of Windows.

Hopefully this helps someone, somewhere...

What use did you get out of this software?

Was looking for an answer to why accessing the camera like a USB drive wasn't working properly.  Also to see if it was like Canon's file transfer software.

I use a USB3 card reader. They plug into your USB, and they are cheap. Windows asks me every time if I want the download the pictures, what to call them, and do I want to erase the pictures from my card. Works well for me.
