Question about Cameras
I cannot import a video from my camera to a computer. It does not recognize my camera or I receive an error.
What make and model camera? What operating system on your computer? What exactly does the error message say?

Testimonial: "I have a Kodak Easyshare v603 digital camera. I was trying to import the video from my camera to my macbook pro (bought in june 2010). It did not recognize my camera nor did the video even show up in iPhoto. I also tried to use iMovie but it did not show up. I tried to import my video to a PC computer without success. Please help me. This video is for a class presentation due tomorrow. "

As it's a DV (Digital Video) camera you should use the IEEE 1394 Firewire socket if it has one. Then use a DV capture program.
If you dont have a Firewire port on your PC you can buy a card like this one which will connect you Camera to your PC.

SOURCE: Problem downloading image
One of the images did not finish writing to the card properly (usually in the last 4 or 5 images, or the last video)
Try selecting all but the last 10 images and chose import selected. This should work. Then delete those from the card.
This bit is important
Put the card back in the camera (if it's in a usb reader) if not, disconnect the camera and put it into playback mode. View the remaining 10 images/video.
Try re importing and it should work fine! I've had this problem since ilife '09 and this method always fixes it. It seems to happen when the cards get full. Try not to completely fill a memory card and you should not get the problem.

To address the present problem make sure the camera is off before plugging in the cable either to the computer or the camera. Also make sure the batteries are up to charge, low batteries or batteries that fail during file transfer will corrupt the memory card. With batteries up to charge plug the cable into the camera and the other end into a USB port and turn the camera on. Now, I would like to suggest that you invest in a memory card reader these are fairly inexpensive and can be bought as a single reader for the type of memory card you have or as a multiple card reader for pretty well every memory card that's on the market. To use a Card Reader it plugs into a USB port and the memory card is removed from the camera and inserted into the card slot. The computer recognizes this card reader as an external hard drive and files can be transferred to your computer Hard Drive with ease. One thing you must remember with any external device and that is you need to do a safe disconnect or eject make sure the device is shut off and the file information is downloaded before you remove the memory card or the files/card can become corrupt. Okay once the transfer is completed insert the memory card back into the camera and format the memory card. Don't delete the pictures at this point Format the memory card. Every time you download the pictures to the computer Format the memory card.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures and videos from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures and videos from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo/video cataloging program.
