    Anybody able to help me again. Seems there are constant hiccups with my new
    Vista. When I was using XP, if I took any movie clips with my camera, they
    played automatically in Windows Media Player. Not so now! I am told that my
    selected file has an extension .MOV that is not recognised.

    Download and install Media Player Classic. Make it your default player:

    Maybe change the .Mov to .AVI ?? Just a guess.
    Good Luck

    He just needs to associate .mov files to his media player, but the
    solution I offered will give him a better player and take care of the
    association for him.

    See if you have codecs for Apple's Quicktime installed. If not, you need
    them. Mov files are apples format.
