I cannot play my SD Card video clips on my computer. They appear as a series of still photos when put on to my computer. I usually use VLC for all my videos on my computer and have no other problems with it. I used a card recovery website to restore the SD Card as all the photos/video clips were "hidden". The Card Recovery v5.20 did a wonderful job of recovering the photos but only two of the many video clips actuall play. I purchased a Don't Panic CD Rom from Jessups. This only recovered

I applied lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens of my camera, a Fuji F50FD digital compact, but it seems to have leaked into the lens housing.
