Larger video (above 1 gig) will not upload to my computer. I tried through various programs, through cut and paste, and also by removing sd card and placing in sd card reader on my computer. Nothing works! Is the video corrupt or to big? This has happened three times now and is a big problem for me.

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.

I was taking lots of scenery pictures this weekend and usually turn my camera on its side to get longer/narrower shots. Well, I decided to take a video and turned that on its side. When I dropped the pictures and video off on my computer it would let me rotate my pictures but not the video. Is there anyway to rotate a video so i don't have to lay on my side to watch it? Thanks.


Well, if nothing else, you've learned a valuable lesson. Always shoot videos horizontally. There are some expensive editing programs that can rotate the video but with severe loss of quality. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

Canon SD1000 Two days ago, my son had a gig at his high school. I recorded it with the Canon Powershot and everything was fine after that. The video would play on the camera and everything.

I have a Canon HG10 Video Camcorder, however I can't figure out how to transfer the actual video files to the computer to be edited by programs. It is a hard drive camcorder meaning that all the information is on a onboard hard drive on the camcorder itself, the manual tells you how to transfer pictures and how to "back up video files to the computer" but the files are not viewable on the computer and must be "transfered back" to the camcorder to be watched... help.

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?
