Re: Videos cannot be transferred to the PC (Windows XP)
Maybe you need a movie playback application that should be installed on your computer that supports the file format of the video from the camera. I believe the video file format from the camera is mpeg. You may try Quicktime player whick also works with Windows.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
I had the same problem with the same camera. What worked for my pc was to start the Nikon Transfer software, select the camera and press the "start transfer" button. Nothing happens for about 6-7 minutes, but after that the transfer starts. My pc: XP SP3 Camera: Coolpix L100 Nikon Transfer: ver. 1.3.0 (i used the software that came with the camera not the up to date version 1.5.3, but it might work with that version also
From the menu bar, select Help > About Kodak EasyShare software.
Note the software version. If you have Version 8.0 or later installed on your computer, review the help information for Transfer Pictures.
From the menu bar, select Help > Kodak EasyShare Help.When the Welcome to EasyShare Software window appears, select Transfer pictures, then read the help information.
If you do not have Version 8.0 or later installed on your computer, go to EASYSHARE Software Downloads, then follow the instructions to download the latest version of software. Approximate download time is 5 minutes for Cable/DSL, or 2 hours for a dial-up connection.
If that doesn't solve your problem you can manually add your pictures/videos to easyshare software.
In easyshare Software, select My Collection, then select Add Pictures. The Add Pictures screen appears.Look at the Select a location field. If the My Files folder is collapsed, click the + to open the folder.In the Select a location field, select your camera folder, for example: M381 Digital Camera. Thumbnails of the pictures/videos on your camera internal memory, and on a memory card if one is in your camera, appear.
Select the pictures/videos to add to EASY SHARE Software, then click Add Pictures. To add all the pictures/videos in the folder, click Add Entire Folder.Click Done.
In order to transfer pictures from your camera, you need to follow thes steps in sequence.
1- Use the CD which came with your camera to install the drivers for your digital camera
2- After drivers are installed, connect you camera to your computer
3- after windows finished installing the drivers and say ready
4- click start, then computer on your PC
You should see an icon with the name of your camera. Double click on that icon, you would see one or more folders. These folders contain all of the pictures and videos you have stored in your camera. You can download, copy delete etc all of the them now
If you do not have the CD, please leave your camera brand and the model number so I find the link to download the drivers.
If you are using Windows XP unplug your camera from your PC and uninstall the Kodak software. You don't need it to transfer photos to your PC. The next time you connect your camera (turn the camera on) to your computer it should recognize it and you can use Windows built in transfer software.

If you have not yet installed Kodak's EasyShare Software, start there. With that, you can view, organize and even edit (trim) still and video images. Versions 6.4 and up are Vista compatible. You can then transfer in new images from the camera or add any images that you already have on your PC.
