Question about Sanyo Xacti DMX-C5 Digital Camera
Can't get the computer to recognise the video camera when its on docking station. Have lots of video clips to download but it won't respond as usual when connected via usb. Pressed the operation mode button but got no sound/ response. No problem charging battery and can see clips on playback. Usually iphoto opens automatically when we link docking station and camera with USB cable.

This is what the Sanyo CG9 Users Manual has to say about viewing videos taken with the camera:
"About video clip files recorded with this camera
You can use Apple’s QuickTime to play back video clips on a computer.
Playback may be possible using other software that supports the ISO
standard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AAC audio)."
Apple Quicktime downloads are available here.

After the USB cord is connected, a menu will popup on the camera. The camera needs to be told you want to transfer files with the usb rather than use the camera as a webcam for example.
Selecting USB Connection / Card Reader on the camera should allow you to access your files on the camera.
You could try removing the memory card from the camera and using an external usb card reader on it.

The camera records video in MP4 format that is not natively supported by Vista; you will need to install an alternative player to play these files. Probably best solution is the open source VLC player. If you'd rather stick to a brand name, Apple Quicktime or WinAmp would be the ones to try.

You don't say what model camera it is, so I am going to have to do some guessing. If your battery charger normally charges the battery in the camera, then it probably will charge when connected to the computer by the USB lead. However, some cameras require the battery to be taken out and charged in an external charger. If that is the case with yours, then it probably won't charge by connecting to the computer.
It is normal for a camera connected to a computer via the USB lead to go into a kind of passive mode, just acting as an external disk drive so that files can be transferred, so not being able to turn the camera on while it is so connected might be normal. However, if you mean that you left it connected for awhile to charge up, but it wouldn't turn on after you disconnected it, then it is obvious that it cannot be charged up that way.
