Canon SD870 - Unable to copy AVI files to desktop

\015 I have recorded 1.5 GB of movie and I can see the AVI saved in memory card but I am not able to copy it out of the camera. Any suggestions please?When I copy I get 0 bytes copied.\015

Answers :

You need video editing software to copy .avi files to.
XP and Vista have that onboard.
Either direct the data to it or import the data from the individual program.
If that does not work, then you have a transfer problem between Camera and PC.
Try a card reader, that will prove it.
