Default Changing Computers and need some help

I hope a member can help me with a camera related question.

I just changed computers and my new high powered Windows 7 is nice enough but it won't accept my video clips through Picasa. My older Vista did just fine and took all video clips and stills. I really like Picasa.

If anyone has an idea why this computer won't run Picasa the way the old one did, I'd sure like to hear about it. Failing that, can someone recommend a similar program for light editing and organizing?

There shouldn't be any difference in the way Picasa works between the two operating systems.

What do you mean by "won't accept my video clips"?

Do you mean copying them from a USB attached camera (which could be a driver issue or something you've got loaded that's interfering with USB access), or do you mean it won't play the videos already copied to your PC?

If the latter, are you sure you've got movies selected in the file types options in Picasa (Tools>Options>File Types)?

If you have not resolved your issue I would suggest ACDSee Pro 4 Beta which I am using as ONE of my editors and is very good and also been around forever so to speak. Here's alink and the beta is good till April I believe.

EDIT::Oops my bad this is for imaging not too sure about video but still worth a shot
Gripped Canon 7D and some glass

Jack - I run Windows 7 and use Picasa also. I think you will need this

It's the K-Lite Codec pack. I use the 64 bit version of Windows 7.
Install the codecs and I think AVCHD files will run fine.
