Re: Transferring video files to my pc
Loading video to PC should be the same as loading your pictures, although they will jist appear as the first frame of your video; looking like a picture.
If you hover your mouse over the file you should see a file type as either .mpeg,.avi or mpeg4, you then right click and open with your preferred programme, be it your DVD player or Windows Media player.

How are you trying to make them communicate, are you using a USB?
If so make sure you select the proper action when your PC prompts you. Transferring and playing are two distinct things, that is to say, sometimes you may be able to transfer a file to something but, that file may not play due to compatibility.
Are you playing the video directly form the hard disk in the camcorder or are you transferring the file to the laptop first? Reading high volumes of data via USB is slow and the PC may not be able to read the data fast enough from the camcorder. Try copying the video to the laptop first, then play it back.
The camcorder has i.Link (FireWire) high-speed digital connection for transferring video in digital format to your computer or standalone DVD recorderin real time with no loss in quality. Also present are USB 1.1 (for picture download and video streaming) and A/V/S-Video outs. So the way to do it ..its by firewire..and a proper software to manage it ...it came with the camera on a disk
Possibly a problem with the computers power. Possibly not. Try this program. If the data gets messed up you can at least fix it with this one. For extra added bonus, it is free and open source. Cant beat that! Available for Mac PC and Linux
Try removing the memory card and insert it into a USB card reader and connect it to the computer to read/copy the images/video files.
You should format your memory card using the camera functions before you take the next lot of pictures and videos.
The problem is exactly as described in the message. Windows media player will not playback files of the type .MOV unless you revert back to WMP version 6.4 (current version is WMP 11) and then install the appropriate codec which is available on this link;
Much easier and better way to play back files of this type you need different player software - the best being "Quicktime" which you can download for free from this link;
If you want a user manual for your camera go to this link;
and click where it says "download pdf"
I hope this helps, please ask again if you need any help with installing quicktime, enjoy your movies :)
It probably won't work but here is something to try:
Make a short video clip with the camera. Then look at the memory stick with the computer to find out the name of the video and what folder it is in.
If the camera makes .avi videos, you will have to convert your home videos to the .avi format.
Then rename the video to a name similar to the one the camera made.
i.e. If the camera named its video Vid00023.avi, then you should rename you home video to something like Vid00034.avi.
Then put your video in the exact same folder where the camera put its video.
That will give it a chance to be recognized by the camera. But I doubt it will play in the camera.
