You may need to say a few things about what kind of computer you have. What computer? What processor speed? What operating system. What software. How much memory does the computer have etc.

make sure that you are not playing the movies off of the card through a card reader or the camera. i did that with my SD300 and they werent smooth but when i ran them off of the hard drive they worked fine

Thanks... so you actually copy the movie file from the camera's memory card to the computer's hard drive right? And then you play the file directly from the computer's hard drive?

The computer has to read 2Mb/sec from the hard disc just to keep up with the videos, not even somebrand new PCs can keep up if, say, your hard disc is fragmented.

I re-encode mine into Xvid/Divx with VirtualDub and it makes them muchmuch smaller.
