i was wonderin how you upload video from a camera (it's one of the big ones, the ones that use cassettes that coudl be put in the VCR playback thingy). The guy gave me the connection and i already connected it, but i dont know how to open the video on the computer. I've never dealt w/ this. please help

Edit: i found out how.. you need to instead this floppy disk that has the program that will open up the video, its called "digital photoshot" but the only problem is that it's only for windows 95/98, i have windows XP. I'm guessin the camera is a bit old. can i still upload the vid if my computer is xp?

Most of the time windows 95 or 98 applications can run on XP. If you have any problems, we should be able to help. There are compatibility modes built into XP for this sort of thing.

What do you mean it didn't work? Was there an error message? Did it install? Did you try any compatibility modes for this?

Work with me here. Information would be good/helpful.

No it did not install, it gave me the message

C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/AUTOEXE.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and microsoft windows applications. Go to close to terminate or ignore.. Something like that.

Did you try to install from the DOS shell? (start -> run -> cmd). That may work.

Also if you copy the files to a folder on your XP machine, select the install or setup file and right click it then select properties the middle tab should be "compatibility". You can set the compatibility mode for this program so it runs as if it's on a win 95 or win 98 machine.
