Go to http://www.videolan.org and download the VLC media player. That should play the files.

Use the K-Lite Codec Pack from http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/KLite-Codec-Pack-Full/1094057842/3 to update your codecs.

To see what codec your files are using, use the G-Spot Codec Appliance available from http://www.headbands.com/gspot/

Yes, you need to purchase a memory card. Most cameras, like yours, which do come with an internal memory don't come with a suitable amount of memory to replace the capacity of a memory card.

Unzip this folder and select "setup.exe"-----> http://www.goaiptek.com/drivers/driverfiles/PocketDV51M.zip
(copy and paste to browser)

Here's a manual for your unit: http://www.goaiptek.com/manuals/manual-pkdv51.pdf

There is a switch under the LCD; make sure it is set to "on" position. Here's a link for the manual; http://www.goaiptek.com/manuals/manual-pkdv51.pdf

Sounds like your unit is toast. The flash on the main board has been deleted. I simply do not think that can be fixed, but HANG ON TO IT! I have been wrong many, many times. Research ways to reflash the unit; not very easy with today's save-a-buck manufacturing methods, but dang worth a try. I'm very sorry for your loss. :(

Can you open the folder and the file are "invisible" or is the computer denying permission? Which Operating System? (XP? Vista? Linux? Ect?)

For now, unplug unit from computer, take batteries out, shutdown computer and reboot. BE SURE TO SHUT DOWN PROPERLY!!!
After, try it again. If your using the prompt from Windows to view folder, you may want to try going through Start-->(My)Computer-->Disk D:, E:, F:, or whichever.

This is a link from aiptek.com for the driver. After it has been downloaded, extract the file (all of it), and double-click on "setup.exe". <a href="http://www.goaiptek.com/drivers/driverfiles/PocketDV51M.zip">Click this to download</a> or <a href="http://www.aiptek.com/drivers.htm"> this</a> to navigate to source page.

There is a small slider on the side of the card to enable write protection - you have probably inadvertently slid this to the "write protect" position. It should be in the position shown in the pic to allow writes.
