Thanks, ***** ***** tried all those things. No joy.
I regret that your answer was insufficient. I have since discovered that this model of camcorder uses software supplied by Pixela, which has to be downloaded from their website to enable the video to be accessed.
To clarify my answer: the Pixela software has to be downloaded to the computer if you wish to use a proprietary editing suite to edit the video and export it. Visit our website at fleetairarmfriends.org.uk to see some of my earlier efforts.
