You may just need to download video codecs to view it.

there is a codec package that has just about every video codec there is its called k light codec pack. I install this on any pc i use here is a link http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5367&s=775

now if your talking about the tape not playing on the camera itself it may just be a bad dv tape, have you tried a different tape?

if you think some settings may have gotten changed try to reset the settings there should be an option in the camera settings menu.


Hi Steph.

\015\012Try connecting the video camera to another computer, such as Windows XP to see if the computer is in fact the problem. If it works, transfer the video to your computer and see if you can open it. This will let you know if it is the PC or the videocamera. Let me know if this helps and we can resolve after this troubleshooting.

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop. I've tried different ports, different cables, reinstalled software, reset the camera -- nothing works. Nikon's tech support was not helpful. My PC runs XP, my son's laptop runs Windows 7. The camera worked fine with both then suddenly stopped working. My device manager does not detect the camera at all.


Microsoft updates frequently make changes to the registry which cause our cameras to no longer be recognized. The simple solution is to start using a separate card reader. ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

Windows Vista!!! When I plug in my cord from the camera (Pentax Optio S5i) to my new laptop with Windows Vista I get a message saying it can't locate Pentax driver and this isn't supported by Pentax??? or something like that.  My camera is not that old.  Is there any way I can get my camera to work with Vista?  I can't even get it to recognize the camera when plugging it into the USB port so it's not a software issue.  HELP I do not want to have to buy a new camera!!!!

I am having problems with my USB connection between my camera, a Fuji FinePix E550 & my laptop.
