Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When loading pics to computer it will not load movies as movies but only as stills. What is wrong, please? Len Bartlett


Answers :

Are you sure they're stills? Try double-clicking on them to see if they play. If they are stills, they will have a .jpg at the end of the name. Do you have a player to play them on your computer? Quicktime (a free download from Apple) can play most any video format.
