Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

Problem downloading a video file from Canon Powershot S3 IS

\015 I use my Powershot camera to record a video of me teaching in a school that I am using for a University project. My memory card is a high speed 4G card that I have been using for almost a year now. I have successfully recorded and downloaded dozens of video files from this camera with this memory card. I have never recored videos this long before. Twice while I was recording the video space maxed its self out and I had to start the camera recording again as a separate file. My problem now is that when I go to download the file it won't let me down load the fist two video clips. It gives me an error message that says "not enough memory". The camera's memory card is not full yet, my computer hard drive has 60 GB of free space and 2 GB RAM so I don't understand what it means, or why it won't download. If you could let me know ASAP I would greatly appreciate it.\015

Have you tried inserting your card into a USB memory card reader? simply take your card out and plug it in. The PC will read it as a drive and it's a simple drag and drop .
