Hi all,

I can't play the movies recorder with SD500. If I just try double clicking on the AVI file Windows Explorer just hangs most of the time. If it does open the movie has http://www.jpg.com embeded across the screen. I tried this on several computers. I tried opening the movie in Vegas Video to convert it to MPEG or QT and I see the same thing. I tried exporting the movies from Canon software. The resulting AVIs are unplayable too and export to QT fails. I tried this on three XP computers. I have no problems playing any other movie files on these machines. I haven't encountered a movie in years that wouldn't play. This is the first time I see something like this. I checked Canon support site and they recommend playing back the movie in Canon software. Tell me this is not true and I'm doing something wrong because otherwise thiswould be the lamest BS I have ever seen! Any other digital camera I ever used saved the movies as QT and you can play them right away after reading from the camera's memory to the disk. Thanks all!
