Aiptek 720pHD Digital Camcorder

I can record and view the videos fine with the recorder and can also view them on Windows Media Player in Vista, but cannot seem to get the video to play in Windows Movie Maker in Vista. I have tried to import the images in but the computer does not recognize a digital device, yet I can open the drive port that it is in and find the file, copy and paste it in Movie Maker, but it only recognizes it as a audio file even though it says it is a .mov file. Bizarre. It will play the audio however.
When I first connect the device windows launches the screen that allows me to access files from a connected source, but of course if I double click the file it will launch it in Windows Media Player. Please Help.

Hey I had the same problem, you need to buy a movie converter program. I bought Movie edit pro 12 by magic (which your soppose to do all this cool crap with but I only use it to convert) and then you can convert the .mov file to a .wmv file so you can put it in the windows movie maker which is how I do it. The program was 50$ at best buy and I think you can buy a cheaper video convert program ofline if thats all you want to do. Any questions or comments email me at

Why can't I get video recorded on my DXG-506V Camcorder to play the video on my computer (plays audio only)? I am running windows xp-pro with usual attachments.

videos recorded on your camcorder is in mpeg 4 format so you need a codec for mpeg 4. ro download vlc media player and play your videos from here to download free vlc media player.

Burning videos to a dvd

This may be due to the fact that the Aiptek A-HD records to a quicktime format. There is a copy of quicktime in the disk that came with the camcorder. Now I don't know if this is quicktime Pro or not (I work on a mac, so quicktime is already installed, but the comps at my school are vista based) but if you don't have quicktime pro (you can check by right clicking on a video in quictime and if some of the options are unusable because they say "pro" next to them, you don't have quicktime PRO. It's $20 for quicktime pro, and it's very well worth the money. You can change format without losing quality, and so much more! Also WMM is not very HD compatible, you should put it in DVD format :) Hope this helped- (youtube user) animation508

I can't get my Window's Vista to reconize my Aiptek 720 Hd Camcarder. Why??

You need quicktime, because the Aiptek 720p records to .mov (quicktime) format. If you still have the CD that the camcorder came with, the software is on it. If not, go to google, and search for quicktime free version download. Although I recommend the pro version, due to the fact that it allows conversion of files. It's about $20. Hope this helped-

Aiptek - Video and sound is out of sync

Are you recording in High Def? When I tried that on mine the same thing happened. That definitely has to be played back on Hi Def TV and the computer probably isn't capable of handling that. Switch to DVD mode, or Web cam mode and you won't have a problem.

Video Playback on a Everio GZ-MG57U

Sounds like you just need to upgrade your codecs. I use media player classic or VLC media player so I've never had these "not" play. Also another thing you will run into is the widescreen not showing properly when it does work. You have to convert the video to proper divx format with Xillisoft video converter in order for it to appear in 16:9 in all players. Makes the files 1/10 of the size too with little quality loss. Make sure you get the newest divx and xvid codecs, or a media player codec pack (easily found in google).

How do I play MPEG recordings?

Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
