    Hi

    The USB allows you to download only from the Memory Card in the camera, allowing you to download stills and any small videos you've recorded direct or transfered onto the card.

    To export your recorded video (MV Tape), you need to buy a Firewire card (Anywhere from £15-50), but unfortunately the software supplied with the camera isn't exactly the best, and I've yet to find any other compatable with the MV format.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers

    Alastair

    Well when there is something better (anything will be better!!) than movieshaker then I will buy it. At the moment I am converting on movieshaker then editing on videowave. A pain.
    If you know a better way I would love to know it.

    I was thinking about buying an IP7 but read that it can only be edited in movie shaker. Is this true?:eek:

    Yes, it wouls appear that at the moment you can only edit it in Movieshaker.

    I did not realise this when i bought it, but had no experience of any editing software anyway so it wouldn't have affected my decision.

    You can download it via movieshaker, export it in a normal format, then i edit it in videowave.

    A bit longwinded.

    I suppose someone will make compatable software soon (hoping!!)
