Canon PowerShot 560

I got the camera for Christmas and cannot get the videos to play, on anything but the camera's browser.
Any ideas on how to change the videos from MVI format to AVI?

They are AVI's, it's just that there filename begins with MVI. If you can view there filename extensions, you'll see ".avi".

Uploading pics

Probably a Microsoft update is the culprit. Use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.
