Can you see the Videos and can you copy them onto your computer?

You will need to play them with a video player that let's you make stills from the video. VLC Player is one such video player. The video will play and when you see the picture you want, you press a certain key combination and it will create a still picture file.

Hi Derek, thanks for your reply.

I have now transferred all the photos from the camera to my computer and they are all showing. The videos have all been grouped at the end. But if I select to print using an on line source it will only let me select the photos and not the video stills.

Can you let us know the file type of the stills (possibly jpg)? That's the three letters (file extension) after the dot which follows the actual file name. If the file extensions are not showing you can change that in "Control Panel > Folder Options > View". "Hide extensions for known file types". Useful to leave it that way if not already.

OK but where they are actually filed are their file extensions .jpg? Look at some other pictures you have saved because almost always they will be jpg. If the extensions are not showing then follow what I suggested in #4.

What I'm trying to find out is whether there is some difference between these stills and any other photo's you have, also whether your other photo's still open normally. The place to check this is in your Pictures folder.

Note that in both cases I am talking about the "actual folder" they are stored in - not some photo gallery which is just reflects the contents of folders and may or may not show file extensions.

If we can get the above sorted we could be well on the say to solving this issue.

sorry, I don't really see the problem. Just put the card into a reader and open the folder with the movie files and remove the stills. I do that all the time with my kodak touch...works great

HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions

Re #7
The problem appears to be that the poster cannot do what you are suggesting with the Canon A420. Many cameras produce just video files without stills when in this mode, or need specific software (sometimes provided) in order to do so.

In these cases suggestion #2 is a good start but on re-reading the responses I'm no longer sure whether or not this was done. Did you do try VLC Janet? With this you should be able to extract the stills required then take them to your local photography department on a flash (pen) drive for printing.
