Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Hello Bonita, It sounds as if the .mov file has been corrupted, I would try to format the memory card and try it again to see what happens.
Hope this helps.

How to download pictures from the vivitar


Hook your digital hd video camera up to your computer, & turn it on. If that dialog box doesn't appear, open Windows Explorer, and see if it shows up (it might show up as "Removable Drive"). If so, drag & drop the files from your camera to your HD.

CD400 and imac


I have a mac and never need to finalize the disc. All I do is hook up the USB to the camera and the computer, then turn on the camera and the application called Image Capture will come on automatically, you can download some of the pics or all. They will go into a folder you choose. HTH
