You need video editing software to copy .avi files to.
XP and Vista have that onboard.
Either direct the data to it or import the data from the individual program.
If that does not work, then you have a transfer problem between Camera and PC.
Try a card reader, that will prove it.

Canon 40D unable to transfer files to my computer


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

How to transfer long video from Canon PowerShot SD870 IS to comp?


Using a card reader is not a solution. It's a work-around. IT dos not solve the fact that many canon cameras have this problem with large files.

It is useless that you cannot copy it without using a card reader. Everybody should be able to transfer their files from camera to any computer anywhere, without having to bring anything but the usb cable.

How do i get video to workon my vivitar vivicam x327


Video Mode
Press the MODE button to select the Video mode.
Note: The camera has limited internal memory allowing you to record up to 20 seconds in QVGA. An SD
card (up to 8GB) needs to be inserted in order to use the video mode normally.

When the icon appears on the top left corner of the LCD screen this indicates that you are in Video
mode.

1. Prepare the object or subject you wish to record.
2. Press the Shutter button to begin shooting the video.
3. The elapse time will appear on the top right of the LCD screen and the icon will flash on the
LCD screen.
4. Press the Shutter button again to stop the recording and save this file in AVI format.

Note:
1. You can preview the AVI files in Playback mode or once downloaded to your computer by using
Quick Time and Windows Media Player.
2. When the camera's memory is full, the “Memory Full Insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and
Shoot More video!” message will appear on the LCD screen when you attempt shoot more videos.
Download the test file from the internal memory to the PC or delete them to shoot more videos.

Alternatively, you can insert a SD memory card to expand the memory to record longer videos.
3. The LED will light up when the light condition is not good.
