Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

Copying Video ---- TO ---- my Canon A540

\015 Hi,I have a Canon A540.I recently downloaded my videos to my Laptop (Windows XP Pro SPii).I then stupidly deleted the vids from my camera and now want to get them back onto my camera SD card.I can upload PICTURE images back to my A540, using the software that came with the A540 without problem, but the camera window software that allows this, only has a choice of Jpeg, and does not let me select the movies that I previously downloaded to my laptop.Can anyone tell me how to get my videoss back onto my Camera?I have been searching the web for ages and cant find anyone else with same problem.I also tried just opening the camera with XP browser, but whilst this lets me copy FROM camera TO laptop, it wont let me do the reverse, so I cant copy the vids this way.If I used a card reader (my laptop does not have one), would I be able to copy the vids back to the memory SD card, and would the A540 recognise them if I did this?Thanks in advance for any help\015

Yes, if you use a card reader, and do not change the file name, AND place the videos back in the same folder it should work.
