I would simply use a USB card reader instead of trying to use the cables that came with the camera. It's faster and easier than trying to use a camera's proprietary software.

Cannot see pc MOV or JPG files on flash drive in Canon SX230


Thanks very much for responding to my problem.
It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing.
steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally.
2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7).
3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.

Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file.
2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy.
3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file.
5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck.
It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.

In order to copy you should have the Picture Package Viewer.

Please refer to the "Computer Application Guide" provided by the Handy-cam Manufacturer or click on the link to view the Guide(pdf file).

How do I put pic. ect. on a flashdrive?


plug in your camera to your computer via usb port. a box will popup on your computer screen asking what you want to do, choose view files and folders. go to the DCIM folder and find the images/videos you want to copy. Plug in your flash drive via usb port and choose to view files and folders. go back to the window with the images/videos and highlight the ones you would like to copy, highlight multiple by clicking one then holding down the ctrl key on bottom left of keyboard, and then choosing another one. Once your images are highlighted click and drag them to the flashdrive window.

Free Download for Vivitar Experience Image Manager


Hello,

Could not find a download for you on their website.

You know you can download your pictures manually without the image manager. From the manual:

1. Use the USB cable that came with your camera to connect your camera to your computer.
2. A window appears with a list of options, select Open folder to view files and click OK.
3. Open the DCIM folder and the folder inside to view the media files.
4. Select the media and copy the files from this folder into your computer. Optionally, select the files and choose Copy from the Edit menu. Then select a folder and choose Paste from the Edit menu.
5. We recommend that you copy the images into the Pictures/My Pictures folder and the videos into the Videos/My Videos folder.
6. Do not disconnect the cable during transfer. Doing so will cancel the transfer of any files on their way to your computer.

If you still want to try to get the Image Manager software, I would suggest contacting Vivitar support at:

[email protected]

OR

In the US: 1-800-592-9541

In the UK: 0-800-917-4831

In case you do not have a manual, here is a link:

Happy New Year!

u may check it carefully and follow this guide:
The Sansa Media Converter (SMC) software is required to convert and transfer videos and photos (pictures) to your Sansa player as well as the memory card in your Sansa player.

NOTE: Only the Sansa e200v2, Fuze, and View allow viewing of video files from the memory card.

STEP 1 - Download and install Sansa Media Converter
The Sansa Media Converter application is available via the Sansa Firmware Updater.


STEP 2 - Convert and transfer your video or image files

NOTE: To see a list of supported image/video file formats, see Sansa Media Converter does not convert a file

1. Run the Sansa Media Converter.
2. Connect the Sansa player to the PC.
3. If a Portable Device windows appears, select Sansa Media Converter using Sansa Media Converter.

7. Depending on what Sansa player that's plugged in or if a microSD is present in the Sansa player, click on the Sansa player or the microSD card on the left pane to select where to transfer the converted files. (in the sample below, we selected the microSD card)

8. Click Convert to covert the files.

9. Once the files are converted it's automatically transferred to the device or microSD.
10. Click OK when finished.

Unaible to down load vidio data from canon dc310 to my pc


Try to copy directly Your camera disc to conventional DVD, without downloading files to computer. It is possible with Nero Burning Rom in a disc copy mode. And before it, try to play an original at Your DVD player, or from the camera direcly to TV. If it works, then make a direct copy as well. Another solution is insert original dvd to computer and copy all carpets directly from dvd to HDD. Then, using MPEG Streamclip (free program) test Your files. If You can see the image - perfect. Any video can be converted a DVD format without problem.

Panasonic SDR-H40 video images distorted in Media Player


The camera does not write the 16:9 code properly in the mpeg so Windows media player does not recognize it properly. There is a little utility called index.zip that you can download which has a file sdcopy.exe which copies the file from the camera and properly writes the code. Then any current video editing software will recognize it and display it properly. It is also a handy utility that I prefer over the software that came with the camera.
