    I can not gey my video cam suite to recognize the movies that are stored on my hard drive. The movies pop up when the camera is connected but it wont create a burn list from those thumbnails. I saved them to my PC using the "Copy to PC" function and then the program seems like it can't find them.

    Hi. I had the same problem. I uninstalled service pack 3 through ADD/REMOVE programs on my control panel. I could then install videocam suite but now it just crashes continually. Won't allow to create a play list. Its so frustrating. I'm really disappointed with this whole experience. Can take movies..Just can't edit them

Just install the Software suite, disregard the message. it may be because the when the suite was released the current SP released was SP1 or 2, when you connect the camcorder make sure that the camcorder settings are set to PC connect (or whatever setting for a PC connection), make sure that the ac adapter is connected.

Hope it helps

Step 1:
SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD. XP PRO SP3 ISO Download the iso also download the imageburn

How to setup a new xp windows

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded

your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation

the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk

if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3

hope this helps

I need to reinstall SP2 over genuine XP reinstallation. This pack is now unavailable from Microsoft.

Windows XP SP3 comes separately with its own registration key. No previous versions are needed for a fresh install. Update packs are also available in many websites.

Install windows xp3

I hope you mean SP3(Service Pack 3) on XP. Please follow these steps

Do one of the following:

  • If you downloaded SP3 from the website, to install it immediately, click Open or Run and follow the instructions on your screen. To install the program later, click Save and download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the service pack, double-click the file.

  • If you're installing SP3 from the Service Pack 3 CD, insert the disc into your computer with your current version of Windows XP running, and the Software Update Installation Wizard should automatically appear. If this wizard doesn't appear, click Start, double-click My Computer, right-click your CD or DVD drive, and then click AutoPlay.

  1. On the Windows XP Service Pack 3 page, click Next.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

  3. After the installation is complete, click Finish to restart your computer.

  4. If you disabled your antivirus software, enable it again.

for more information check the Microsoft website..

Dear, It is coming soon as a bootable format. then you can install just SP3, no need of SP3 for that.
you can down load SP3 from Microsoft web site free and just run it over SP2.
Hope, it will help you.

OS Matter


Without the disk you cannot upgrade to Windows XP Pro, because both Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional are two different edition / version.

So if you want to upgrade your current operating system from Windows XP Home then you have to spend money to buy Windows XP Pro

But if you want to upgrade the Service Pack then you can very well do it.

Click the link below to download Windows XP SP3 for your edition and install it. Before installing it make sure you have turned off your security programs or better install it from the SafeMode

Good Luck
