Just a thought, does it ask you to specify a file size before uploading? or is it in an option setting somewhere? The reason I ask is that some audio software asks you to state the size before it will record anything.

... or is there an option in Cyberlink Power Director which causes it to only download one scene at a time?

capture options,time limit and size limit,but they dont seem to make any difference what i put in them

try setting them both to 0

there is no time limit it should upload all the film and then you can edit and burn

Check that DMA is enabled on the disc you are writing to. It is recommended that you use a different disc to the one your operating system is installed on.

You say you shut everything else down. Does this include anti-virus & firewall progs?

Can you see the Camera in Windows Explorer as a Removable Drive or Camera. If so just drag files from it

Check that DMA is enabled. Make sure you do not have a slow device (e.g. CD) on the same cable as your harddrive.

1/2 min corresponds to about 100MB of data. I presume you have adequate space on the disc or partition that you are saving to?
