Hi, many thanks for your reply. I 'Googled' Quicktime for Windows * and a lot of people have said that it either doesn't work or that it continually crashes. Obviously there has to be a problem somewhere unless there are a lot of professional complainers. I'm not using a camcorder, its a Canon camera with a video facility. I took lots of high resolution video clips on a recent holiday which I saved onto my netbook. Now back home I've copied them on my desktop PC which has the Roxio Creator NXT programme. I would like to save them to a DVD so I can play them through a DVD player and watch on my TV - a much bigger screen than my desktop. I might just stick to taking photo's next time!
