If you plug in the camcorder to the computer, it should show up in "my computer" or computer, which you can find from the desktop or the start menu. It should show up as "Removeable storage device" And inside you can find your videos etc.

take a look, or is it requesting a driver?

Also another way of getting the content to the computer would be to use a card reader. it will work as above and show up as a removeable storage device. Thats what I do with all my cameras etc.

Cheap card reader goes around 10$ or 20$ and reads all the cards out there Very easy to get any videos, pictures etc into the computer.

    Either your batteries are dead or the camcorder is faulty, try a higher mAh set of batteries.

    It does sound like the camcorder is faulty or the battery contacts are not clean, clean them with the eraser end on a pensil, if the old batteries have leaked on the contacts that might be causing it to turn on irregularly

  • Ekse Nov 08, 2010

    LR6/AA 1.5 V 2500 mAh Or rechargeable nimh should also work fine

    Your normal batteries should also work fine, it sounds like there something wrong with the camera, the battery contacts might be dirty or not touching properly, you could carefully try to pull them up just a little if possible.

Optimus stav 3280

Have you thought about Universal Remotes? I bought a LG Harmony remote a year ago and never looked back. It plugs into your computer and after using the software you enter all the components of your home theatre, (including your 3280.) You can then use the one remote to control everything. Also some models have a charging base so you will not need to change batteries anymore.

How long should i charge a new optimus black

The optimus black phone should take 2-3 hours to fully charge. When you get a new phone, however, it is generally a good idea to let the battery completely die before you start charging it.

Over time, batteries hold less and less charge. Supposedly, by allowing the battery to completely die before charging it the first time, you improve the longevity of the battery.

My android 2.3.6 does not respond to touch screen

Best thing to do is back everything up and do a master reset. Some software corruption is causing the device to freeze, if you remember it never did this straight out of the box, so some software issue is causing the problem, a master reset will fix that issue

All batteries run out of power real quick. I can only shoot 20 pictures with a brand new set of batteries with my EX-FH20. Both alkaline and NIMH batteries die within minutes

What you need is HIGH RATING cells and so try and get NI-MH with rating over 2000mA or a higher grade along with a good rechargable unit and your cells will last longer than using low type cells.
