I have Canon Powershot SX100 IS and a 8GB memory card. Recently when I was attending my friend celebration I recorded a video. The video is about 23 minutes in duration and a 2,3GB in size. After when I tryed to download the video from camera to my computer, I get a error. The downloaded video is 0KB in size and can't open. I tryed on some other computers and the same thing occures, I get a error. What should I do?

    nothing like this, the file system is NTFS, that is not solution


    the pictures that I have taken I can transfer to computer but video I can not. Recentlly I recorded a video about 10MG in size and a 1,5 mintutes long, that video I tranfed succesfully to my compyter. I consider it then perhaps the video of my friends celebration get corrupted or something like that.  Then I tryed to record another video 25 minutes long an a 2.7GB in size. That other video I can watch on camera also, but the same error get when i tryed to download it to my computer. Can it be that it is a bug on Canon Powershot SX100 IS model series camera?

    I'm having this problem, too. My video is 2:40 and my computer locks up when I try to upload it to my computer. It works perfectly fine on my camera but no matter where I try to copy it on my computer, it comes up 0 KB, 0 Bytes. I even tried sending it to my external WD harddrive. I really need to get this video on my computer!

    I have the same problem with a 1.5GB avi file and I have an NTFS formatted drive, so that's not the solution...

Believe your computer's hard drive may be formatted to FAT32, thus may have problems with large multi-GB files. Unfortunately hard-drive partitioning is not my specialty, but it may be possible to partition a NTFS section on your hard drive to allow downloading of your video? Or maybe find a friend's computer who has a NTFS formatted hard drive?

    Well one other solution is to forego transfer using the camera, and instead use a USB card reader. You insert the SD card into the reader, and insert the reader into a USB port. It essentially turns your card into a thumb drive that you can copy and paste your pictures from onto your hard drive. Card readers are much quicker for file transfers, and are likewise much less prone to error. Most if nearly all professional photographers use card readers to download their photos for these very reasons. They are also VERY inexpensive, especially for an SD reader. Here's an example of an inexpensive one from Amazon:

Canon powershot SD1000 video playback problems


Unfortunately, no. Time-lapse video works by taking fewer frames and then displaying them at normal speed so as to give the impression of time going by faster than in reality. Thus, the camera simply hasn't recorded all the information it would have in normal mode, and there's no way to recreate that information. Think of reading just the first line of every page of a book: you'd get through it quickly, but you'd also miss some things.

Now, if you'd shot in slow-motion, then you could throw out some frames until you got to normal speed.

Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue


This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.

Have you tried inserting your card into a USB memory card reader? simply take your card out and plug it in. The PC will read it as a drive and it's a simple drag and drop .
