The software (ulead) included with the camcorder does not recognize the file type even when its in a .avi format. The computer will recognize it and it will even run through another program. But I need to be able to upload the .avi file to the program that came with the camcorder so I can edit them before they are burned to the DVD. The other program that I have (trial version of Allok - I had to try it since ulead wouldn't work) will not edit, only burns. AND it leaves a very visible watermark because it is a trial version. IPlease help.

Steve, The 1st thing is to install the correct driver for the 100 on the computer you are using. Is it a Mac or PC? What model of computer is it. I have been able to use the Zip100 disks with an older IIGS and some older Macs (Performa and Mac SE) with no problems. I have had no experience with the PCs. The disks formatted as FAT16 or FAT32 can be read by both Mac and PC. Those formatted for the PC can also be read by Macs if PC Exchange is installed. Mac disks cannot be read by a PC.
Write back with more info to clarify your exact situation.
If your trying to connect a device via usb to your computer and it isn't being recognized; The best thing to do is go the manufacture's website of the device, look under download or support tab and download the latest version of the driver
The driver is what lets the computer recognize the device.
Download the driver, then double-click on the file so it will install itself on your computer. Once the driver is installed, restart pc, turn on your device and finally connect your cable
The mac operational system is designed for apple computers only, It will only recognize the drivers in the apple product line. The pc computers have a different configuration and will not except this software.
You can upgrade RAM & Video card in it, also download all the latest updates for everything. Then find the driver online for your particular video camera and download and install it. Then the MAC should pick up the camera and have the ability to to go that extra mile for you.
look into Disk Warrior...its a hundred bucks, but it is a miracle worker of sorts and might fix everything for you.
the frustrating thing about DW besides its $100, is it takes less than a minute to fix problems I would fret over for weeks
Are you using the USB cable that came with the camcorder? If so, then don't use it, because it doesn't work for loading from mini DV tapes to other devices. Instead, buy a IEEE 1394 "FireWire" cable (whether 4/6/ pin, whatever you need)in order to pass the videos from the camara to the computer.
note: DO NOT buy a cable that has a USB on one side and a IEEE 1394 on the other side, thus it doesn't work. You must buy a cable that has both IEEE 1394 ports on both sides.
