You must use the unit to play back. You are supposed to connect directly to television or other type of monitor. I do beleive you might need a password or something to view recordings. I am not sure but i do beleive you cannot remove hard drive and connect to a pc to view files they have to be run through the units software. I hope this helps.

How do i ad pictures from my computer to memory card


Most cameras won't let you copy pictures from a computer to the memory card. However you can use a card reader (either built-in to your computer or attached via USB or FireWire). A memory card so connected will appear to your computer as another hard drive and you can copy files to and from it the same way you normally copy files on your computer.

If I accidently deleted my photos, can I retrieve the pictures somehow?


The answer is YES if the deleted photos are not overwritten(if you continue taking more photos or put more files to the external memory). Do it as follows.

First things first: DO NOT take any more photos with the memory card(within your camera) that you want to recover photos from. Take the card out of your cam and put it in a safe place. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your memory card, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the card to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a photo recovery utility that will recover your pictures with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover videos and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your camera(memory card) until you can recover the files safely!

How do i get the internal memory pictures onto my computer?


Simply remove the memory card from your camera before connecting the camera to your computer. The computer will then see the camera's internal memory instead of the card memory, and you can copy the pictures over.

If you have been accessing your pictures by removing the card from the camera and placing it in a card reader attached to your computer, then this won't work for pictures in the internal memory. You will need to use the other method, connecting the camera to the computer with the USB lead.

I have no idea how to put my videos and pictures on my computer. I really want to upload videos to You-Tube also please help me!


You should be able to transfer the video files from your camera's memory card either using the USB cable or more simply by taking the card out of the camera and putting it into a card reader attached to the computer. Many computers have memory card readers built in these days, but if you don't have one you can buy one for SD memory cards from Poundland for a quid.

Either connecting the camera with USB cable or using a card reader, you will find the memory card appears as a drive in Windows "Your Computer". Just copy the files from it. You may have to negotiate file folders to get to them, or Windows may pop up a box asking what you want to do with the newly discovered drive.

Editing and converting videos is a large subject, which you will have to put in some time learning, but getting the files onto your computer should be simple.

I earased by mistake the photos from the card attached to the camera. is there any way i can restore them?


you can recover deleted photos from camera with camera recovery software like asoftech photo recovery.


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.


Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download asoftech photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

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.
