I used a Sony Handycam DCR-SR68 to record some videos for a school project that is due in two days. The videos were recorded onto a Sandisk SDHC card. I can't seem to get the videos from the card to my computer. I've tried connecting the camcorder to the computer via USB and followed the instructions for PMB program included with the camcorder, and after that failed, tried inserting the SD card itself into the SD slot on the computer (Compaq something or other, just bought it a few months ago). No matter how I try to access the videos on my computer, I get message that says "No media files found", but clearly there are videos on the card! The only way I can view them is to insert the SD card into the camcorder and just view the playback, but I NEED them on my computer in order to do editing. Can someone please help?!! I've been trying for hours and can't come up with a solution

Hi bnswob2 and welcome to TSF

You should be OK with an 'SDHC Card reader', something like these Link (Sorry for UK prices, my browser defaults to UK) - You simply slip the card into the reader then plug it into a spare USB-socket (Also saves the camera-battery too), you can then browse the files using 'Windows Explorer' (Depending how your PC's set, you might get a little pop-up asking what you want to do, with several options available).

Thank you! My sister has an SDHC card reader, I guess I just didn't even think of trying that since my computer has the SD card slot. But the reader worked, and now I can access and edit my videos. Thanks again! :)

Download videos from my Sony Handycam DCR-HC40E to Windows 7 PC
Hi! After upgrading my computer to Windows 7 Ultimate I tried to download some old footage from some mini DV's using my Sony DCR-HC40E camcorder connected to my PC via a usb cable. I updated Sony's software from Picture Package to PMB, and bought Serif Movie Plus 5 to edit the video footage....
