Hi all and a very happy new year to you all,
I recieved a Sanyo Xacti HD Camcorder for xmas works fine but when i put the SDHC card in the PC card reader and try to play back video i get the box Windows cannot open this file use the web service to find the correct programme but i get this.

Description: Windows does not recognize this file type.

Windows does not play MP4 natively use this freeware player.

Look on the disc that came with the camcorder, it normally has conversion software on it as well so you can burn to dvd/blueray

Hi madboy33©® thanks installed the ArcSoft Software and works a treat, was trying to get away without installing extra software but never mind it works many thanks.
