You should purchased a video editing such as Pinnacle Studio. Once it is installed and your camera is plugged into the computer and turned on, there will be a diaglog box appearing to load the program up.
If you had it working before consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Vista is notorious for not recognizing firewire devices, especially camcorders. Try going to the Hardware Manager and updating the IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller driver. When prompted, you can search in the WINDOWS\WINSXS directory and make sure the Subfolders box is checked. It may show that the driver is the incorrect one but continue to install it. Afterward try plugging in your camcorder and see if it shows up.
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-

I have the same camera and use vista without a problem. However I use the firewire interface and not the USB which might be the explanation.
By the way, I can't find my manual. The date and time don't stay saved for any length of time between use. Is there a baterry that need to be changed and if so where is it?
