After I shoot video with my camera I can play it back on my camera just fine, but when I transfer the .avi file to my computer there is no sound when I play it. I made sure that my speakers were on and my computer was working right, but I still didn't get any sound. I know that the camera originally recorded sound becuase the video plays just fine on the camera. I tried transfering the video to my computer by using the USB and then finally just plugging the memory card directly into the computer, but only the video plays.
Yeah I can play them on lots of other players but I'm just trying to get the file to work so I can just wok on it and pull it into movie maker with out a lot of loading and reloading ..I imagine it's another dang Vista glitch...lemme know if you figure it out.
Try putting the vid file plus the audio file which transfers to your computer together under something like microsoft movie maker and blend them together that way. then it will play together under windows media player not just divx

The video files your particular camera makes should be AVI format. What media player are you using? I've heard of problems playing AVI files with Windows Media Player.
Try using a different media player like VLC or Winamp. There are also video format conversion programs out there for free. I use anyvideoconverter for that. You can get all of those programs from cnet.com's download center.
The Vivitar DVR560G outputs each of these file types...JPEG, MP3, AVI and WAV.
To view a video, you must use and mP3 or AVI file. Right now your output is a .WAV file which is an audio only file. See your owners manual for output options.
I would download virtualdub (free), install a divx convertor (free to some level), and input your original file in virtualdub (file-open file), check the video tab from VDUB, click compression, select divx, and save the file as an .avi file on harddisk of yr computer. If finished, check this avi file with a media player (winamp or so), see if it plays correctly, then transfer the file to your Archos. This will work.
I believe, when you converted, a stray codec was used for audio)
Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.
It probably won't work but here is something to try:
Make a short video clip with the camera. Then look at the memory stick with the computer to find out the name of the video and what folder it is in.
If the camera makes .avi videos, you will have to convert your home videos to the .avi format.
Then rename the video to a name similar to the one the camera made.
i.e. If the camera named its video Vid00023.avi, then you should rename you home video to something like Vid00034.avi.
Then put your video in the exact same folder where the camera put its video.
That will give it a chance to be recognized by the camera. But I doubt it will play in the camera.
