I have a new Panasonic DV camera. I've uploaded via firewire my video to my XP laptop & the files are in .avi format.
When I uploaded another tape via firewire to my new XP-Media Center desktop, the files say they are "movie" files (and do not show the extension).
Both machines are networked & I have transferred music & picture files from the laptop to the desktop without any problem. However, when attempting to transfer from "My videos", it causes my laptop to restart!!!!! What would cause this?
AND, why are files uploaded in different formats? Could this be the reason why the transfer does not want to take place?
HELP! I'm not new to computers, but am new to DV.
