After transfering files from the camera to my pc i'm unable to open the files. The files are transfered as MOD file type and are not viewable. How do i save them as ASF files or other viewable file format.

MOD files should be viewable using MediaPlayer. I know at least with version 11. There's some chance though that you will need the codec, but don't you have this in the software CD supplied with the camera?
If the camera transfers in MOD most chances that it's the best format to transfer on. Later you can convert it probably if you want.

I phoned canon with a similar problem. Poss reasons: 1 A clash between codecs - try removing as many codecs as poss then installing something like Ace mega codecs (this did not work for me). 2. Has the card been formatted on the computer ? I have since reformatted my card using low level format option on the camera. It has worked fine with 2 video clips I tried today - but I still cannot play my earlier problem files.
You do not need software. Take SD card out of camera and place into card reader on pc. Drag movie files onto desktop or folder of your choice. At this point you simply need to change the file extension on your recorded movies to ".mpeg"
MPEG4 motion video can be played back with Windows Media Player 6.4 or later. MPEG2 cannot be played back in Windows Media Player. Files created with our D-snap Video Cameras are designed for playback with the included MediaStage software and our DMR-E100H DVD Recorders.
MPEG2 video is DVD-quality video comparable to digital camcorders. The picture data is transferred at a rate of about 30 frames per second, for a beautiful, smooth motion image. It will show up on your SD Memory Card as ".MOD" or ".MOI".
MPEG4 video is suitable for use in a compatible PC, viewing on a TV, posting on Web pages or attaching to e-mail. It is inferior to MPEG2 in smoothness because the number of the frames transferred in MPEG4 is less than that in MPEG2. However, MPEG4 has a higher transfer rate, and a much smaller file size, than MPEG2. It will show up on your SD Memory Card as ".ASF", which stands for Advance Systems Format files.
