You should of gotten a usb cord when you purchased your camcorder. Windows Movie Maker will allow you to edit and download the video. You could also get better programs to edit video like Pinnicle or Sony Vegas, but Movie Maker will get you started. Good luck!

Here is the frustration... your camera comes with a USB cord, but that won't deliver the video to your computer. It will only deliver the still photos taken with that camera. Video needs to be transported over Firewire (IEEE394) cable. This cable does NOT come with you camera. In addition, most computers do not have a firewire port on it (although more are now adding it). I hope you have a firewire cable and port. If you do, then moviemaker is perfect for a beginner application for video editing. Once you have the correct hardware, the connections are REALLY simple and the software makes it easy to CAPTURE the video for editing. If you are a beginner, I recommend Moviemaker.

A USB cord will be fine if the video files are stored in the internal memory of the camera such as a mpg or mp4 file. You just need to transfer the files as you would pic files. If the camera records to tape such as mini DV then a firewire cable will be needed to capture the video to the computer. If you don't have a firewire connection on your computer, you can add usually add one. On a laptop this is simply done by sliding the adapter into the pci card slot.

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
