Windows 7: Camera

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Well I bought a camera last year for recordings and it's pretty cool. But it required a disk for it(the size of a gamecube disk). I record on it and I put it in my PC

Computer > D drive - Never loads.

I'm pretty sure it's the CD itself but not understanding why. It fits in the slot fine, but meh. Help would be great

Try the disc in another computer, see if it can read it. If yes, create an iso file from it using ImgBurn or some other program then mount the iso image as a virtual drive and install it from there.

If it won't read in a different computer, check the manfacturers web site, see if you can download the driver from there to install.

My friend has one of those cameras and you have to do something to the disk before you use it on a computer.

Has the disk been finalized?

With the camera model, we can tell you how to do it.

Hi Rasheed, I am assuming you are trying to play video you've recorded?
Chances are you will need a manufacturer supplied codec or maybe have to have a particular player such as VLC or RealPlayer.

Is this disk you refer to a miniDVD or CD? Is it being shown in Computer when you load it. Yes for more help we need the exact camera model and maybe a Screenshot of what is happening.
