I have a Hitachi DZ-GX5020A DVD camcorder and I can't get the videos to play on my PC. The Computer won't read the little discs so there is no way I can even burn it onto a big disk.

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 have just bought a Panasonic SD700 camcorder. It is fantastic. But I am a novice and all I want to do is to transfer the files to my laptop and watch them. Media Player wouldn't play them so I downloaded Codecs which has partially solved the problem. Downloaded VLC Media Player which again has partially solved the problem. I can now see the home video clips but there is a significant amount of horizontal line distortion (best way I can describe it) when the camera or the subject moves.

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today.
