Recently, my camera when I hook it up to my computer, will not read on the computer. I thought it was the USB cord that was screwed up, so I got a different one, but that one didn't work either. I fear it is something wrong with the camera itself. Any suggestions?

To transfer your video to your pc please do the following:
1. Make sure that you have installed the software that came with your camera. If not insert the supplied cd in your dvd drive. When the dialog box appears select Easy Installation and follow the instructions.
2. Close your camera's LCD monitor.
3. Connect the usb connector to the camera and the pc.
4. Open the LCD monitor and from the menu select Backup.
5. Click all volume and click Next and then Start.
if it came with a USB cord, or atleast has a USB port on it you should be able to plug it in to the USB port on your computer and your computer should recognize it. mine does (different camera), and I don't have a disk with my camera either. hope that helps :) good luck!
I never use the computer hook-up programs/equipment that
come with a camera.
What you should try is a Card Reader Thumb Drive.
I recently bought one for SD cards at Office Max for about $12.
All you do is remove the card from your camera, insert it in the
thumb drive, plug the drive into a USB port, and take it from there.
A window will open up on your computer showing a folder named something like "DCIM". Just double-click on this folder
and you'll see a list of the pictures on the card.
did your video camera come with a cd to run on your computer???.......on some things you have to run the cd that comes with it before you are able to hook up your video camera and start uploading videos
I had this same problem and it is a problem with the actual camera where the usb cord plugs in. Luckily there is a cheap solution - you can go to radio shack and get a memory card reader for about $15 (or some newer advanced all-in one printers and computers already come with them) and take the memory card out and insert it into the reader. You can transfer the pics from the reader to your computer. All you need for the reader is an available USB port. It is very simple and I have found it to be a better way since it doesn't eat up batteries either.
