I am able to see all pics and play all movies from the camera. I am able to transfer all pics, and some movies. Not sure why all movies do not transfer. I have a 2GB memory card and recorded until it was full. Trying to figure out if there is another way to transfer those files?

Thanks very much for responding to my problem. It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing. steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally. 2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7). 3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.
Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file. 2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy. 3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file. 5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck. It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.
If you have the firewire cable you can connect the camera, go to My Computer icon on PC, look at where your main C drive is, you should see the camera mem card in that area, hit that with left mouse bbutton. the pics will flow out and you can drag/drop them into file on PC.
Please don't take this as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos AND videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-do-i-download-photos-or-pictures.html

Hi: When you transfer all the files, the movies should be transferred as well. Open Windows Explorer to the folder you saved the files to. Notice the file names by using either details or list in the view. Other operating systems may differ slightly. The movie files should be with .mov extension. The jpeg or picture files should be saved to .jpg extension. Some cameras will save to a different extension if the highest resolution is used, such as .tiff or other.
The movie should be transferred automatically when you transfer the images from the sd card. There should be a folder where the pics are transferred, usually through a program called Picture Project. Look for an icon with the Quicktime logo on it or a movie logo. That should be it.
