I have a Canon IXUS 800, the shutter won't open properly, just opens about a millimetre. I don't want to break it as otherwise it is an excellent camera.

No Sound I just got a new computer so I can burn home movies from my Samsung S630 to DVD. The computer recognizes the video, but not the sound. My camera works fine and the sound on the computer works fine except for when I try to play my videos. I've heard that I need codecs but don't know what type and where to get it. I don't have internet at home, so I'd need to burn the codec package to a CD and transfer it to my computer. Do you know what I need?

I used a head cleaning tape but this has not changed anything. I opened the cover and it free of any visible dust and lo
