companies and they kept telling me all these different things to buy- so I
did that.. and it still will not work. The Pictures transfer fine.. I bought
an external hard drive that has a firewire port and USB 2 ports.. so i

video camera... It doesnt work- nothing shows up.. I dont know what to do!!

    The hard drive cannot show up in Windows Explorer until you partition it,
    format it and assign it a drive letter.

    Right click on My Computer, and select Manage. On the following screen,
    click on Disk Management. It will now appear on the right hand side of the
    screen. Partition it, format it and assign it a drive letter.

    Kristen,
    "It doesnt work- nothing shows up.. I dont know what to do!!"

    When you say, "nothing shows up," exactly what does that mean?
    "and it still will not work."The Pictures transfer fine.."
    The pictures transfer fine from where to where?

    I've got an idea . . . take a deep breath, relax!
    When you post please do so in a linear fashion, you are all over the
    place with your post and it makes it harder to help you. I know your
    frustrated.

    Please include in your post, your basic computer system specs., and
    operating system. (XP Home/Pro) Your video camera make & model.
    What application your trying to use to edit/preview your video.

    The more detailed you are in the description of your problem, the
    easier it will be to solve it.
    Best,
    Treeman
