Question about Canon PowerShot G5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Video clips When I try to save video clips taken with my Canon G5, they freeze the folder where I'm trying to save them. I've had to save them on discs only because the minute they are in any folder in my computer, the folder is unusable because it freezes. I can't even open the video clip to watch it. Help Please! The manual doesn't address this problem at all. Thank you in advance for any help.

CANON 600D filming, Freezing video when watching on PC

I had the same problem. The computer was simply too old to play back full HD videos...
You should also try to copy video file to your hard drive to prevent trouble due to a slow access to the SD card. Hope this will help.

I'm trying to load my photos from my camera to my computer and I'm getting a message that says "Save Folder Not Found." I've never had a problem before.

it is possible that the original "Save Folder" has been deleted or name changed. Go to options and create a new folder to save your photos to. Hope this can help. UAW 974

Get a card reader. The one pictured below is $13 at Walmart. Create a folder on your desktop. Insert your card into the card reader and the other end into a USB port on your computer. Drag and drop the video file into the folder you created. b957eb4.jpg

Error Message when I try to transfer videos from my camera to my computer.

You did check free space on your hard drive didn't you?

Otherwise, I'd say the file is corrupted.

How do I rotate my video clip

Windows Movie Maker will rotate your video clips. This program comes pre-loaded with Window, so you're likely to have it already installed on your computer (look in the Program's / Accessories folder from your Start menu).

Drag the file into movie maker, then drag it down onto the bottom timeline. Then look for "Edit Movie" in the menu on the left side of your screen. Click on it, then select the rotation that you desire. Note that Movie Maker will only allow you to save your edited movie as a WMV (Windows Media Video) movie.
