    I went to the Taste of Charlotte and took many pictures. I also took three short videos all of which I can see in play back on the GF1. I down loaded the files to my PC, and I can see all of the stills, but only two of the movies. I can see the file on my PC, it just will not play the file. Has anyone else had this happen? I don't believe that I did anything differently between the three videos, but then I could have, not having taken video before. Thanks for any help that you can give.

    Are the three videos of the same file type?

    yes they are

    Yes they are the same file type but I found a solution. When I placed the card in the card reader, I had been saving to a folder and then using VLC Media player to open them. Well it worked the other few times I have used this with other downloads. This time it worked for the first two, but not the third video. So I did go back and read the manual that came with my GF1 and what I found was that I needed to download the files using Photo Fun Studio which is one of the software programs that came with the GF1. I went back to my camera and pulled the memory card and re-downloaded those files to a folder on my desktop. I was able to read all videos like a charm.
