The videos taken should be in the same directory as the photos, but with a different extension. If you look at your memory card in windows explorer, the directory structure looks like "drive letter: \ DCIM \ 100SANYO \ SANY0001.JPG" or "drive letter: \ DCIM \ 100SANYO \ SANY0002.MP4"

The .MP4 files are the videos. You can copy them from that directory to somewhere on the computer where you can edit them or put them onto DVD.

Can't upload video from camera to pc Olympus TOUGH TG-310 Digital Camera


Do you have Windows Live Photo Gallery? It comes with Windows 7, but if not you can download it here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/photo-gallery-get-started
  1. Open Windows Live Photo Gallery
  2. Connect your camera
  3. Click the Import icon in the top left corner.
  4. Select your Olympus and click import. It should import both photos and videos.

You can also try and select the videos you want using the file download module Windows displays when a new device is plugged in. If that doesn't work, try
  1. Start > Computer > Olympus Tough TG-310
  2. Then open the folders until you find the videos you want. Select them and copy them to your desktop (or any other preferred location).
I have had video issues with my Olympus TOUGH (could not delete them from the camera) which turned out to be a formatting problem with the memory card.

I have taken some new photos on my camera but when I have connected it up to the pc to transfer the photos it keeps saying no new picutures or video were found on this device


TRANSFERRING PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

Video footage not saved to disk


Sounds like you took the video using AVCHD Lite. It's actually in a hidden folder on the memory card. Most computer will not recognize it. Recommend you don't use it anymore. Use Motion jpeg instead. Takes more space but looks just as good.

I have vivitar 5024 camera. i have a 4gb chip in it, i have only taken about 50 pic. and the camera says the chip has no more pictures to be taken on chip


Try taking photos on a lower resolution. They use much less space on your memory card. But only 50 on 4gb means something is wrong.

Check to see everything on the card is actually a picture and not a video. Taking videos can chew up amazing amounts of space, after all a video is a huge string of photos strung together. I hate to think it but some time ago a conamn was selling doctored memory cards which read 4gb on your camera but actually held only 2 gb. I would've thought these could have been long gone but if you purchesed it used it could well be one of those. Although I'd still expect more than 50 shots.
Maybe your card requirers a format. If your camera has a formatting capability try it out, just make sure you do it with a known good set of fully charged batteries. If they die halfway through a format it can wreck your card.
Your camera should certainly allow more pictures to be taken on a 4gb card. Buy check the above and maybe borrow a card from a friend to try out or even a another card. A spare sure comes in handy and with today's prices they're as cheap as chips.

The date created is wrong on my photos


The file properties will always show the date downloaded, since that's the date the file was created on your hard drive. The date (and time) the photo was taken is stored in the file itself, in what's known as the EXIF data.

I don't know what operating system you're using, so I can't give you specific instructions on how to get the date the photo was taken. On Windows Vista, for example, if you click (not double-click) on a file in Explorer, the date taken will appear in the status area at the bottom of the window. Other programs will have different ways of displaying the EXIF data.

How do you look at pictures that you have just taken?


Press the Home button. Touch the right-pointing arrow to enter Playback mode. Here you can view the photos and videos you've taken. You can also rotate, protect, delete and crop your photos and you can protect and delete videos. You can also go into thumbnail view to see more than one picture at a time.

Importing movie onto PC with Vista


I think you should install a software program that has the capability of opening mov file. This would become a plug-in for other programs and enable them to interpret it as mov file. or click on your movie file from camera and change its properties to be opened by a certain software that can open mov file and use it as the default program to open that file.

128Mb memory card


I've never had this problem. I have 128 MB and 256 MB Viking CFs and I've had as many as 210 shots on a card. The Cameo viewer software is very good about automatically recognizing that the camera is connected and saving everything to a new folder. I use this frequently on my home PC running Windoze98se; and I've used it on a Dell Inspiron notebook running WinXP Pro. Short of buying a card reader and installing new USB driver (depending upon your operating system), the only thing I could suggest is to uninstall the Epson software and reinstall it. Perhaps there is something corrupt in the installation. --
