First, I would copy the video files onto the internal hard drive.  Most memory cards readers are connected vis USB and can be rather slow.  As for the no sound, what type of camcorder did you use?

Hello,
I am using the new Kodak Zi6 pocket video camera. Do you mean to create a folder maybe under "My Videos" then drag and drop them to this folder? That would copy it to my hard drive right? The memory card that I am using is an internal drive on my PC. However I can also connect my camera to a USB port on my PC and copy it like that as well. What do you suggest? My camcorder does indeed have sound because I copied the video using my AV outputs on my TV connected to my DVD recorder and it was just fine with sound and all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been working on this all weekend to try to figure out why the video does not import with sound using Roxio. I have imported them using Quicktime and it works just great that way too, but when I try to use them in Roxio again no sound. It sure is a puzzler. Thanks again!

If you insert the SDHC card into the card reader in your computer, that works fine, but still copy the files to My Videos or a folder in that.

According to Kodak's website, this camera uses H.264 (MOV), AAC LC.  Unfortunately, you may need to convert this file before you can use it in Videowave/MyDVD.  I had an Aiptek which used a similar format.  I had no software that could edit it.  Video with no audio is all I got.

I'll see if I can find some sample files online and see what I can come up with.

If you have Creator 2009, then you have Sound Soap.  Open that and add that file to Sound Soap (yes it will accept it.) via Open Media File. Now output (save) the audio to a wav file.  

Go back to Video Wave, add that mov file and mute the native audio.  Add the wav file from Sound Soap to one of the other audio tracks.  And adjust it to match up with the "action".

If you need more detail, let me know.

Hello All,
Thanks for your help. I have worked on this all weekend and I have found that AVS Video Converter 6 works the best for converting my Quicktime videos from my pocket video camera (SDHC format) to MPEG for use in Roxio VideoWave and My DVD's. It is rather costly at 59.00 for unlimited registration which includes ALL of AVS4You's products. The other option is 39.95 for a 1 year subscription.  The suggestion from the above poster would have worked probably if I could have synched the audio with the video. After numerous tries I felt like I was watching one of those Japenese films where the sound was a little off of the action. smile.gif Oh well , all in all I appreciate all of your sincere help with my problem. Perhaps Roxio will offer a patch to those of us that love the  technology of using SDHC media to take movies with. That would have saved me some money and time.

The media - SDHC memory cards - has little to do with it.  It's the video codecs that the camera manufacturer has chosen to use.  I have no idea what these companies are doing, but there are several inexpensive camcorders that don't follow the specifications for the formats exactly.  When I had the Aiptek, the ONLY software that could edit the files was the software that came with it.  Nothing else would recognize the audio.  I took the Aiptek back.
