My video files won't play! They say 0 bytes??? PLEASE HELP

by thatoneguyonline - 2/12/09 3:56 AM

Hello, I went to an event last weekend and recorded 18 video clips with my digital camera. When I got home I drag and dropped the video files from the memory card to a folder on my computer. I soon learned that 7 files won't play! Windows Media Player says it can't play the files and when I go to properties they say 0 bytes! What sucks is the clips that won't play are the most important ones! I think it's the memory card because the one I usually use never had this problem. I borrowed a memory card from someone for this event.

PLEASE HELP! IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN GET THE FILES TO PLAY????!!!!

My digital camera is a cannon Powershot A560.
The memory card I used is a Lexar 8GB Platinum II 60x

I also wanted to ask about the memory card. For some reason, my computer won't recognize the card when I put it into the memory card slot! I had to use a USB to get the video files off the camera. I need to put some pics back on the card, too, but it won't let me do it through the USB. Why won't my computer recognize the memory card? It recongizes my regular memory card, but not this Lexar card.

Thanks!
