Panasonic Recorder Driver Downloads are Malware
Drivers are simply not available online for most of the range of Panasonic digital audio recorders with model numbers rr-US***. Included are Panasonic rr-US430, Panasonic rr-US450 and Panasonic rr-US500.
Although a quick Google for Panasonic driver rr-US450 or any of the models numbers mentioned will produce hundreds of search results, NONE of the links will lead the searcher to a driver file for this range of products. “Downloads for Panasonic DVC USB Driver” will produce the same negative result.
All of the links will eventually take you to one of a small handful of “download” sites. The majority will send you to Driver Guide (www.driverguide.com) and several mirror type sites that look the same and do the same.
Driverguide.com Fake Driver Software
Driver Guide (www.driverguide.com) packages are fakes and a way of spreading Babylon software. They do not have the required Panasonic Recorder driver in their packages, or even in their library. Claiming they do is false advertising. Driverguide.com should be blacklisted for distributing rubbish software under the guise of drivers for well-known products.
