If you have stored your video on the removable memory card and you have a computer with a card reader, just take the memory card out of the camera and plug it into the correct slot on your computer.

If you don't have a card reader or your video is stored on the camera's internal memory, you will need to connect your camera to your computer using a usb lead.

Before connecting the camera, you will need the drivers installed on your computer. This is on the cdrom that came with the camera. If you don't have the cdrom, download the drivers from the camera manufacturer's website.

Finally, you will need software on your computer to play .mov files or whatever the format is of your video recording. You may have sotware already, so try it first.

Downloading photos from Sony DSC-P100 to computer running Windows 7


Please check below for information about the compatibility of your Sony DSCP100 camera.

Windows 7
* Drivers:
The drivers needed to connect your Sony camera to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system.

Not Supported: The Windows 7 Starter edition is not supported.

Check here how to transfer video clips to a computer running a Windows operating system:
1. Turn on the computer.
2. While the camera power is off, connect it to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
3. Make sure the camera is using a fully charged battery pack or connected to an optional AC power adapter and that it is plugged into a working electrical outlet.

NOTE: Avoid using a battery pack with little remaining charge because transferring may fail or image data might be corrupted if the battery pack shuts down too soon.

4. Make sure media with the recorded video is inserted in the camera.
5. Turn on the camera.

NOTES:
On the LCD screen, a USB indicator will display during and after the communication session.
If this is the first time the camera has been connected to the computer, the computer should automatically install the appropriate USB driver at this time.

6. Transfer the pictures or videos to the computer using one of the following methods:
6.1 Use the Import pictures and videos option.
In the AutoPlay window, click Import Pictures and videos using Windows .
In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click Import Settings .
In the Import Settings window, click the Browse button.
Click to select the location on the computer where you want to copy the movie files (for example My Videos ).
Click the OK button.
In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, click the OK button.
Click the Import button.

6.2 Use Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software
Using PMB version 4.3 or older
Using PMB version 5.0 or later

Copy and paste the video files from the Removable Disk window that represents the camera.
a. Open the My Computer or Computer window on the computer.
b. In the My Computer or Computer window, double-click the icon that represents the camera.
c. Click to select the appropriate camera folder that contains the video or picture files you want to transfer.
c.1 The DCIM folder (if available) contains still picture .JPG, or .ARW files and .AVI video files.
c.2 The MP_ROOT folder (if available) contains standard and high-definition .MP4 video files.
c.3 The AVCHD folder (if available) contains high-definition .MTS video files.

NOTE: Depending on your camera and the type of footage recorded, not all the files or folders above may be displayed.
On the computer keyboard, press CTRL+C to copy the camera folder and its contents.
Browse to the location on the computer where you want to copy the picture or video files, such as the My Pictures or My Videos folder.
Press CTRL+V to paste the camera folder and its contents into the computer folder you selected in the above step.

NOTES:
* Movie player software must support the MPEG-4 format to playback standard or high definition .MP4 recordings.
* Movie player software must support the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format to playback high-definition .MTS recordings.
* Refer to the developer of your movie player software for information about file format compatibility.
* For the video to be viewable in the PMB software, the folder where the videos or pictures were saved must first be registered in the software. Information about how to register folders is available in the PMB Guide in the Help section of the software.

I had somes videos in the camera i plug the camera into the computer to take some vodeos after that i lost all video in the camera i 'd like to put back those video into the camera but i don't no how to do


probably you imported them with a software or windows video importer wizard and it has a choice in a little case which if it is checked its erasing the data after imported..to put them back you have 2 choices..either use the manager to move the data back if it has the option ..if not ..the simple way ..is to connect the camera using the data cable ..and the driver ..after that do not open any prompts..but if it has a card look into the my computer folder and locate the card from the camera cause it will be there called removable device..(storage)..open it and just copy the video back in there ..in the video folder..and that's all...if it do not have any card ..it will be probably in my computer but named by the camera name ..open it and drag the video(or copy ) into the video folder..

Olympus FE-230 - will not import certain video to computer


Make sure your not running the cable through a hub of any kind.
Plug it directly into a usb port on the computer.
Sometimes the hub can limit the bandwidth (speed)
and with video you need all you can get.
I'm assuming here that your computer is new enough to have the
2.0 usb standard.
Best of luck Paul

Im trying to import videos from my mini dv tape on my digital Video camera JVC GR-290u i plugged in a usb cord from my camera to the computer but nothing came up. when i switch from video mode to memory...


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.
