The problem is exactly as described in the message. Windows media player will not playback files of the type .MOV unless you revert back to WMP version 6.4 (current version is WMP 11) and then install the appropriate codec which is available on this link; Much easier and better way to play back files of this type you need different player software - the best being "Quicktime" which you can download for free from this link; If you want a user manual for your camera go to this link; and click where it says "download pdf" I hope this helps, please ask again if you need any help with installing quicktime, enjoy your movies :)

While I can shoot video with my DMC-ZR3, and watch them on the camera, I seem to be incapable of transferring the video to my computer - a run of the mill Dell laptop running on Windows 7. It's as if...

If you are shooting in avchd lite, you must use photofunstudio to work with them. Another way to download videos....create a folder on your desktop....use a cardreader to download to the folder....import them to photofunstudio. Or....just shoot videos in Motion JPEG instead. typrice_205.jpg

Can't get videos off the camera


here is a easier way to view/transfer your videos/pictures.....

if your running Windows Xp or Vista great.

select your menu button on the back of the camera , then Shooting menu, then Set up, scroll down to Interface, then USB, select mass storage. press menu to exit.

turn your camera on after you connect the USB cable to your computer and camera.

a new hardware wizard should be active, Xp & vista provides the drivers and a one time deal. your camera turns into a removable hard drive or like a jump drive.

you can drag & drop the video files easily into a folder .....

make sure you have the latest Quick Time Player to view the videos.

and here is the manual on the Coolpix L10

you can download the free adobe acrobat reader for free also.

Can't transfer video from Camera to the laptop

I phoned canon with a similar problem.
Poss reasons: 1 A clash between codecs - try removing as many codecs as poss then installing something like Ace mega codecs (this did not work for me). 2. Has the card been formatted on the computer ? I have since reformatted my card using low level format option on the camera. It has worked fine with 2 video clips I tried today - but I still cannot play my earlier problem files.

Videos cannot be transferred to the PC (Windows XP)

Maybe you need a movie playback application that should be installed on your computer that supports the file format of the video from the camera. I believe the video file format from the camera is mpeg. You may try Quicktime player whick also works with Windows.

Or you may try VLC Media Player.

format the memory card by using low level format in your camera itself.
if it s not working. keep camera in vedio mode and use view finder for shooting. now transfer them to ur computer. if the vedio plays sucessfully in computer means there is some fault with LCD only

Movies shot on FUJI's digital cameras are recorded in Motion JPEG format and can be played back using QuickTime version 3.0 or later. (You can download QuickTime from the Apple Computer site). To play back movies in Windows Media Player, download and install DirectX 8.0 or later from the DirectX website. Let us know if it fix your problem,or you need for more help. Good luck !!
