Hi Marc,

Please find the solution to your problem as below :-

If your videos play well on your camcorder and they are not playing well in the computer , then it's for sure that the problem is with the computer's video codecs.

I request you to please install this codec pack in your computer

When you install the K lite codec pack you would have an application installed called as media player classic , this application can be found in the K lite codec pack menu under programs in start menu.

If it does not work , then you can download this player
It's called as the VLC media player and it's considered one of the best video players with all the required video codecs , so it will surely play your HD files properly.

If both these players do not play your video which is least probable , you need to make sure that you have installed the video drivers from your motherboard CD and when you find you have not installed them , then please install it and your problem will be solved.

Hope this helps ..:)

Not able to run nero with vista

Unfortunately Nero 9 is the only version of Nero that currently works with 32-bit windows Vista. So your Nero Showtime wont run because it is meant to run on Windows XP and Windows server 2003, not Vista.
