    I am using the USB cable (on my mac) and ifoto will not import it.  It is from my memory card I believe.  I have imported videos before so I am not sure of the problem!

    Greetings StormM,



    Are you trying to upload it to your SD card or into an internal memory? Are you using a USB cable or a card reader or a multimedia computer?



    Thank you,

Cab sum1 please xplain to me how to transfer my files bak onto my camera if i have windows

You can use the USB cable and Camera Combination like a Jump Drive and copy the files in Finder(Mac) or File Manager. use copy and paste and they should copy ok. On the Mac you will need to open the drive that Mac OSx Mounts on the desktop and drag and drop the Files where you want them...
If a camera is not the same type as the Camera that the movies were taken on then there is a lot of likelyhood that the camera will not play transferred movies (Resolution differences)... C

You can try to go to my computer, find the file that the camera is on, and then leave that window open. Then go to my documents, leave that window open. Go back to my computer folder. Click and grab the video file and drag it over to the my videos file and let go of the mouse so it will drop in that folder. Otherwise try kodak easy share or quicktime

'Cause either your digital camera's memory or your PC hardware has a limit, so many digital lovers keep asking how to burn digital Camera/torrent files to DVD:

Q1: My torrent downloads are always in the .avi format. I would like to play these movies in a regular DVD player, but I don't know how to burn the DVD on my computer (running on Windows 7).

A: That's true, most videos shot by digital camera, and most free downloaded movies from torrent are in AVI formats.

I cant download video files from my Canon IXUS 850 IS


Use a separate card reader to transfer the video to a folder you create on your desktop. Try using Quicktime to open it.

Canon ixus camera says my movie clip is an error


The video files your particular camera makes should be AVI format. What media player are you using? I've heard of problems playing AVI files with Windows Media Player.
Try using a different media player like VLC or Winamp. There are also video format conversion programs out there for free. I use anyvideoconverter for that. You can get all of those programs from cnet.com's download center.

Canon SD870 - Unable to copy AVI files to desktop


You need video editing software to copy .avi files to.
XP and Vista have that onboard.
Either direct the data to it or import the data from the individual program.
If that does not work, then you have a transfer problem between Camera and PC.
Try a card reader, that will prove it.

Transferring PC videos TO a Sony Cybershot?


It probably won't work but here is something to try: Make a short video clip with the camera. Then look at the memory stick with the computer to find out the name of the video and what folder it is in. If the camera makes .avi videos, you will have to convert your home videos to the .avi format. Then rename the video to a name similar to the one the camera made. i.e. If the camera named its video Vid00023.avi, then you should rename you home video to something like Vid00034.avi. Then put your video in the exact same folder where the camera put its video. That will give it a chance to be recognized by the camera. But I doubt it will play in the camera.
