    I feel really dumb. I hardly ever use video at all but tried it today on my EP3. When I connect the camera to the computer - all the pics on the memory card are shown but there is no video data shown. THere are 3 videos than can be viewed on the camera but they don't show up on the computer in Olympus Viewer, iPhoto, or as files on the memory card.

    I know I must be missing something stupidly obvious but videos taken with my Nikon DSLRs were visible in iPhoto if you clicked on them. But with the OLY files downloaded, there are no video files shown/listed to click on.

    What am I doing wrong (Mac OSX Lion 10.7.4)

    You probably recorded in 'Full HD', which means on a Mac you will want to use iMovie. Your original files are on the memory card in the folders: PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM (the .MTS files). But if you want to edit or tweak them, use iMovie.

    You can't use iPhoto/Aperture/etc.
