I have sony DCR-HC14E digital video camera. We are unable to view or download fom camera to computer.

Here is what you try to do.. When the computer detected the camera as a new usb device, RIGHT click on your windows start button and choose Explore or open Windows Explorer. Then look for the drive associated with the camera under My Computer or Computer (left pane). Click on that drive letter to show the contents of the camera on the right. To copy the files, just click and drag those files to your local drive.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have been unable to view videos taken on my camera from the start , do I need a specific download or attachment ? Kodak EasyShare C530

No download is required to view videos on your camera.
It could be caused by a fault in the firmware however unfortunantly there is no update available online.

Please note:
There is no volume button since this camera has a microphone, but no speaker.
You can only hear the sound when you transfer the file to a TV or computer.

I am trying to open and watch a video emailed from home from my xacti dig camera with a .mp4 file extention. but unable to view it from computer at work. what software can i download to watch it?


The following link is to the download page for VLC Media Player. It is by far the best free media player around. It will play any file format, and does not take up much of your computers resources.

Hope that is what you need, thank you for choosing Fixya!

PC will not recognize memory card

even though the card has video files on, this should not prevent you from seeing the still pictuers. Try and open my computer and open the removable drive to view the pictures.

Photos wont open

There seems to be a corruption of file type between camera and computer The fact that the computer wont play mov. but the camera will if back loaded seems odd. JPEG files can and do go wonky if back loaded to camera after editing because essential info for the camera has been deleted. A JPEG file as produced by a camera is properly called an EXIF file because has has EXtendedINformation. Lose it and the camera wont know it. Like wise older PC's such Win 98 and older software don't know about EXIF so they chop it off So something like that is happening here. Check out Tech Support at Kodak see what they can tell you.
