Hi,

Please go to the Canon link below and download the Windows software for your computer. This should be compatible with your video files.

Really? I'm using the internet to search for a resolution and you ask me to download the Canon software? I even stated in my query that the files were not available in the Canon software? Please don't insult me by asking for money and then giving me the obvious solution especialy when i've said it doesn't work!!Can we try again!

Sorry, I did not see your initial exchange with the moderator.

When you first connect the camera is there any response form the computer or the camera? II am aware of an issue with the USB connection and some versions of Windows 10.
