    Hello, I'm having a little trouble with my video files. I transferred all of my photos and video files from my Macbook to the other computer (Windows 7 i believe) using USB flash drive and when I opened my files on the windows computer all of the videos turned into images. Is there any chance to restore my videos? Thank you.

    I don't own a Macbook. Here's some advice for the future: never move or transfer. Always copy. When you are 100% positive that every file you want is stored elsewhere and opens correctly, then it is safe to remove it from the first device.
    I assume during the transfer the videos got corrupted. There isn't much you can do if they are no longer on the macbook.
