I have never had a problem retrieving pictures from my Olympus Stylus 730, I can open the memory card and drag the pictures to a folder on my computer without a problem. However, I cannot do this with video files. I can't even play them straight from the memory card folder on my computer (Dell PC). I tried opening them with Windows Media Player instead of Quicktime, the format they were in, and it allowed me to hear the audio but with no video. How can I convert these files so that they are read

Invalid File... Hi, everyone... Recently, it's happening the following error when I try to download the photos from the camera to the computer: Error reading DSCxxxx.JPG: Invalid Parameters. This error does not happen with all the pictures of the camera. If I put the card into a reader, I can not copy any picture, all of them give error on reading. Even formatting or replacing the card, the error remains. Does anyone know what this error means ? Tks a lot !!!
