A number of things may prohibiting your camera from downloading the pictures to your computer. Here are a few suggestions that should point you in the right direction:
Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable. If the camera uses a USB port, try another USB port. If you don't have another USB port available, try plugging in another USB device to verify that the USB port is working.
Check the power source on the camera. If you're using batteries while attempting to transfer the pictures to the PC, try changing your batteries, recharge the batteries, or use an A/C adapter.
Try reinstalling the digital camera software on your computer. In most cases, reinstalling over top of the existing software will resolve this issue.
Take the media out of the digital camera and attempt to download it to another computer. If all else fails, try formatting the camera media. Most newer-generation digital cameras equipped with an LCD screen have a menu option that can format your media.
You may not have the proper CODEC installed on your PC for AVCHD videos. Try using VideoLAN or kmplayer to play the video. These multi-format players have most common CODEC's bundled. If you want to play the files with windows media player try installing a codec pack. You can google for that, but I recommend using one of the mentioned players instead as it is cleaner and they are fast.
If your PC does play the video but its really choppy, you might not have a fast enough processor / or video card to keep up with the high bandwidth high def video.
The USB cable is to download still images only. To download video, you need (1) a firewire cable, (2) a firewire port on the computer, and (3) a video editing software program used to download and edit the video.
your camcorder doesn't support usb streaming for PC connection.for you to download your videos you will need what we call an ilink (firewire or ieee1394)connection.the ilink jack is located at the bottom of where all jacks are located.also known as dv in/out jack with an i symbol. its a plug-and-play connection but you would need a pc that has ieee1394 card (check if you have one by going to device mng).if you do have an ieee1394 bus host controller that means you have a working port in your PC.all then need would be the correct cable for both your devices.if not,an alternative would be to use a pcmcia to ilink card that you can use if your computer has pcmcia card slot. if your able to connect and successfully establish connection you can use win moviemaker for your video capturing application.this has been too long an answer but hope it helps.thanks :)
