How to transfer long video from Canon PowerShot SD870 IS to comp?

\015 I took a long video on my Canon PowerShot SD870 IS - about 10 minutes long. I'm trying to transfer it to my PC, but whenever I do it says the file has been compressed in a way no program (neither windows media player nor quicktime) can recognize. Furthermore, I don't even know if the video is transferring! In the Canon folder before I copy it over to the computer it says the file is 936MG but then once I save it to my computer is says the file is 0MG. What's going on and how do I fix this?\015

Answers :

Using a card reader is not a solution. It's a work-around. IT dos not solve the fact that many canon cameras have this problem with large files.

It is useless that you cannot copy it without using a card reader. Everybody should be able to transfer their files from camera to any computer anywhere, without having to bring anything but the usb cable.
Try using a card reader to transfer the video to a folder you create on your desktop.

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.

For editing software Avid Studio, Corel VideoStudio Pro X5, Sony Vegas, etc... all handle AVCHD format video (the .MTS video files from the HG10).Later versions of Windows Media Player now will play this format. Many other players are also a ... Digital Cameras
