i have a nikon digital camera with an SD card installed i can see a video i have on the camera, and am trying to get it on to my computer it downloads the photos but not the video, all i get is a blue screen when trying to view these vidoes, any answers would be grateful, nutty norm

The recommended way to transfer images and videos from any digital camera is to use a card reader in a USB port,and not the camera's software.

Thanks to all.i found on my sd card was an avi file which i managed to convert to a format that my dvd player would recognise even though most of the free converters came with a load of junk i managed them in the end , in the future i will only used the camera to take pictures and not movies, nutty norm
