    I had this problem before, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to fix it. My new camera does video in avi format. Once I have downloaded the files all that is showing is the AVI icon. How do I get it to show the beginning video clip? I have 30 avi icons and have to go through each one to find out what is on it.......:confused:

    Try opening Windows Media Player and making sure that avi is chosen under the file types to be handled by it.

    Do you have any "tweakers" installed? X-Setup is one that has that option in case you used that before to change it.
