Question Solved: Problems reading Olympus .mov files
Have upgraded computer to Acer Aspire 1640, to better enable video editing, and found that programs don't recognise my .mov files from the Olympus Camedia C-730 camera.

Quicktime is the only loyal program. Thumbs Plus 3.3, and Even Windows Media Player won't recognise them now where previously I had to repeatedly stop Windows Media Player from interfering in my choice of program to read these files.

Was Windows 98SE, and now have Windows XP. Can't see any other difference that should matter.

Is there a Media Converter that works better than others? And, what would I change it to? From searching and reading looks like a possible way to go.

Thanking you in anticipation!

This will take care of that .MOV problem

or IrfanView http://www.irfanview.com/main_download_engl.htm works good with .MOV also.

.MOV Converters
Thanks again kidcnote. Had only tried Digital Media Converter Ver 2.5 before and that elongated the picture as well as converted, so was not satisfactory. Super long horses with very wide faces don't look quite right! Didn't get to the reading of directions, and that was the next chore, hoping for a choice in output size.
Have not had a chance to try any more, but managed to download a few so far. Fun times ahead!
