Sounds like a codec problem. The T2i records in Apple's mov format and might not play on your computer until you get the right codec. I'd recommend googling for codecs and pick an option from cnet or other reputable firm to help ensure you avoid malware.

Have you tried to play it with Quicktime?

I would suggest playing it with VLC. I have never found any audio or video file that VLC can't play.

I presume you're removing the card from the camera and putting it in your computer, rather than connecting computer and camera by cable? The latter can sometimes give problems.

Actually, the simple fact is that your Windows computer may not be fast enough and it therefore "stutters". Several of my students have experienced the same issues, and upgrading to a faster computer with better memory and better video results in success. What you bought three years or more ago will not do HD video very well, if at all. Strangely, iMacs with similar specs work just fine because their OS is far more efficient and uses less system resources than the Windows OS.

I was not happy with video editing on Windows until I moved to Windows 7 and a Core i7 processor with 9gb of memory and a very fast video card with 2gb on it. Now everything works as it should. No stutters, no dropouts, just great AVCHD video directly from 5dMkII unedited files or even while editing them or burning to BluRay.
