Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a new Canon Powershot SD780IS. I took a movie with it, in multiple parts. The smaller segments will download from the camera to my PC very nicely, but the biggest (and most important) piece will not download, even though I can see it play in the camera. What to do???

Answers :

In fact there are several important reasons discussed in this blog article link for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.
