You should be able to find your installed camera on:


- click START
- locate your camera and highlight, then another menu will drop down then highlight the icon (clicking the icon will open the program, if you right click the icon submenus will drop, choose SEND TO Desktop so that the icon of your camera will be displayed on your desktop)


- locate the folder of your camera on the drive where you installed it, usually on Drive C under Program Files folder.

Hope I was able to help.

During the installation process, you might have checked (or not checked) a choice having to do with the placement of a Shortcut (icon) on your desktop.

Go to the Start Menu (start button lower left)All Programs>Scroll down till you see your Camer's description>left click once> when you see what you would click on once left to open the camera, right click instead. In a new menu you will see a choice saying Send To with an arrow pointing right. Put your cursor on that line and a new menu will offer you the choise to make a "Shortcut to Desktop"...left click once and all is well again.

How to download videos from my camera to my computer

Dear Dcarres,
To start with, please install the software that came along with the camera.. ones the installation is successfully completed, Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable provided along with the camera and the computer should automatically detect the camera and launch the software.
Even if the computer doesn't launch the software.. you can go to "My computer" and you should be able to find a new drive letter along with your C,D and CD drive..
Double click on the new drive letter and go through the folders, you should be able to find the images in there.. Copy those images from that drive and paste them in "My Documents --> My pictures" or to any other location.
Once copy is done, left click on the green arrow icon in the system trey, next to time and select option "Safely remove the device" .. now you can unplug the camera.

Please let me know if that helps.
