Question about Sanyo VPC-S1415 14.0 Megapixels Digital Camera - 5x Optical Zoom/6x Di

Open Question

Video Problem I can't get my camera to copy over a video to my computer. It hasn't ever had any problems like this, I've had it for two years. Mostly the videos I send over are a couple minutes long but this one is nearly 15 minutes long, so is there a limit to the length of the videos I can send over?

    Hi Tabitha Ruff, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?

    How are you trying to transfer it? Are you using a USB cable, or are you removing the memory card and putting that into your computer directly?

SOURCE: just bought xacti VPC-HD 700.

I think you have a codec problem.You should download a codec pack such as FinalCodecs2008 or K-Lite Codec Pack
Remove any previous installed codec pack and install one of these two and you should't have problems running any movie file! I have FinalCodecs2008 and I didn't had any problems.Hope you'll listen to my advice ;)

SOURCE: codex error when downloading to PC

The answer to question one is that there's no problem with your camera, its a setup problem with your computer which should be easy enough to fix. Go to (stands for combined community codec pack) and click on "Download Windows Vista/XP/2K". Once it's downloaded it, run it and click next, yes etc to everything that it asks you, then once it's finished restart your computer. Hopefully once this is done you'll be able to see your videos :)

SOURCE: copying videos from the camera to the computer

Ruth when you put the media card into the pc it should read the card and perform and auto play if it does you need to chose open folder to view files. When you do this all the media should appear as thumbnails in the window.. What I do with my media is I will create a new folder on the desktop... right click on the computer screen and scroll to new highlight folder.. .name the folder what you want ... kids pix.//b-day party... etc... I find the easiest way .. and because I'm a visual person is to open the folder I created restore it down smaller on the screen so that both the files from the memory card and my new folder are opened side by side. highlight one image or file on the memory card hit cntrl+A and all should be highlighted ... now just drag them to the new folder that you created once they are they the card should be clean... if you happened to copy then just erase all the images off the card when they are in the folder... hope this helps

SOURCE: can't play video I filmed on my computer

The camera records video in MP4 format that is not natively supported by Vista; you will need to install an alternative player to play these files. Probably best solution is the open source VLC player. If you'd rather stick to a brand name, Apple Quicktime or WinAmp would be the ones to try.

Importing pictures

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Hi, 1and half years ago I bought a HDR-HC9E. I didn't use it alot, but now I have started to use it. I've made 5 cassets in 5 days and everyday I have copied in my macbook pro without...

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the i.LINK connection from the Camcorder is not recognized by two different Computers. Since the issue persists with two computers, it seems that the issue is with the Camcorder itself.

I suggest that you try resetting the Camcorder and check if that helps. To reset the Camcorder, please press the reset button behind the LCD screen using a sharp pointed object. Also make sure that the Camcorder is turned ON when pressing the reset button. You can locate the RESET button from the below picture.


If the issue persists after resetting, service may be required. However, please click hear to view the troubleshooting steps recommended by Sony. I have reviewed it and found that you have already performed all these steps. However, please check whether you missed something.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

On my card, there are some files that indicate a "File Error." What does this mean and how do I fix it?

It usually occurs with slower cards. Also with cards that have never been formatted in the camera. Sometimes the write process on the picture/video that you just took hasn't yet completed, while you switch modes on the camera, going to say video mode, or from video to photo mode. That last video or photo that was being written didn't get a chance to finish writing to the card, so part of it may be lost. You can attempt to recover some of them using recovery software (here's some to try). But overall the fix is to use a faster card (look for Class 6 "C6" or higher), and always remember to format your card at least once in your camera using your camera's format feature (keeping in mind that a format will also erase your card, so make sure that you've backed up your photos to your computer first!)..

Whenever i upload a video to my computer it turns out choppy and slow. I downloaded Nikon Transfer and after using it my videos are still choppy. What do I do about this?

I'm a video game programmer with 20 years experience in software, and have a reasonable understanding movie playback software.

I also have a Nikon (S6100) and the problem is nothing to do with PC memory or CPU speed. The Nikon creates a broken version of the MPEG-4 AVC H.264 format, which results in choppy playback. I've tried Quicktime, VLC and the cameras own player - ViewNX2 - same result for all of them.

Converting the buggy .MOV files the Nikon creates to a .avi format produces perfectly smooth (flawless) video, but with the sound out of sync. I can also create perfect quality (lower res) DVD video, but with the sound missing.

I have spoken to Nikon about all this and they are quite simply clueless and will take no responsibility. As there is no firmware up[date for this camera I'm taking the camera back, as it is basically flawed.

I've read a few sites with customers complaining about choppy video for this camera, so it looks like the model itself is flawed.
