Panasonic camcorder usb driver for windows 7

Hi, I have a Panasonic camcorder model NV-GS70B about six years old which was supplied with a usb driver on a cd for windows XP and it worked fine on my old computer. It will not hold on my new windows 7 computer and Panasonic do not have an windows 7 driver for my camera. When I try to load the driver off the cd I get the message 'The requested operation requires elevation.' How do I do this?

You can't. If Panasonic have elected to no longer support your camcorder, it is the end of the line re Windows 7.
 
XP mode would be of no use to you, but maybe dual booting with XP would be ok. Of course, you would need a full retail version of XP which would cost you $$$.
 
Have you considered getting a new camcorder?

I disagree. Since the camcorder seems to use SD cards buying a cheap USB card reader (~$5) would be a much cheaper option.
