Thanks t00nz! I wasn't sure that you had answered vishan's question, so I went and tried to download my 400MB+ videos from the SD card (which like vishan, I wasn't able to do and lost some precious videos of my gorgeous children!) using a relatively new notebook which comes with an SD card port, and saved it onto an external drive, and.... it worked!!!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You have saved me MUCH heartache and loss of further precious memories...
