I love my camera except for the video part of it. I can easily record videos and watch them on the camera just fine, but when I upload them to my computer, they seem corrupted. I can play them on my computer, but the file is plays very slowly and buffers often. Is there any way I can fix this? I have tried redownloading the software but it hasn't worked.

Re: Video Recording Corrupted
What I have found that works GREAT is a program called VLC media player. It worked so well that I brought it up to the guys at Casio during a conference call one time and they said it was ok to recommend using it. LOL
Go to videolan.org and there will be a link there where you can download it for free. It works with Mac and PC. Should take care of your buffering and slow playing problem. :)

You would normally get a cd with the camera with the driver and any software for transfering and capturing video on, but if you have'nt you can use Windows Movie Maker.
Assuming you are on XP, this can be found on strat>all programmes>accesories>windows movie maker.
From within this easy to use programme you can import video straight from you camera, you then choose which frames to use by dragging down to the bottom timeline, and then the programme will ask what you wish to do with the movie, be it for e-mailing or web and will compress the file automatically and when you have clicked finish video ask if you wish to email it directly from the programme or save to your pc.
This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.
Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.
So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.
If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.
All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.
If it can be of any help I did manage to find information on how can I eliminate noise during video recording on the Zi8:
Turn off Continuous AF (auto focus) to prevent recording camera noise during video capture. When you turn off Continuous AF, you may notice a narrower area of focus or depth of field, especially if you zoomed to a telephoto position before recording.
Turn the Mode dial to Video, then press the Menu button.
Highlight the Continuous AF menu, then press the OK button.
Highlight Off or Single AF (certain models), then press the OK button. (On is the default.)
Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen.
This setting remains until you change it, change the Mode dial, or turn off the camera.
Good luck I hope one or both solutions will help the problem

Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.
