I have ageing Canon MVX 150i and use either Mindows Moviemaker or Ulead videostudio SE for editing. Previously have had no problems but when transferring recently have been unable to get the footage accepted by either program. Message is to the effect that the files are corrupted and unusable. The video can be downloaded directly to hard drive with Nero and plays fine on Media player but the editing programs will still not accept these files imported from the hard drive (Catastrophic failure was how videostudioSE put it!).
It seems to me that the problem might be with the camera but I should welcome any ideas as to what might be amiss and what I might do to remedy it.
