I thought I had posted this morning but it is not showing now.

Do you get a message something like "Codec no supported" a any time?

Is your CCTV system HD or SD?

When you copy footage to your USB stick does it also copy a routine that plays it on your PC, if not what do you use to play it?

What file extension does the file on the USB stick have?
