Health warning: the following may contain drivel, as my techno geekery knowledge is on a par with Mr Brown's understanding of deals with Libya (apparently). I recently purchased a you-can't-beat-it 15.1 mega pixel camera c/w HD movie facility. Works like a dream. However, when I hook it up to my computer and download using wither Canon proprietary software or Picasa, and try to look at pictures or movies, the whole shooting match starts to move slower than a wheezy, 40 a day BPFA runner hoping for the elusive 13 minute finish. Task Manager tells me that the machine is gobbling up processing power (c.100%) and movies are as jerky as a jerky thing from Jerksville. I closed down all my memory hungry programmes but movies still don't run properly with Quick Time, GOM Player or whatever. I'm running on Windows XP SP3, a 2.60 GHz Pentium 4 CPU and a NVidia GeForce FX 5200 Card. Very grateful if anyone has any ideas!
