Do you know anything about flip camcorders I'm trying to save my video and the instructions say to copy it into the target folder in the HD of the computer i don't understand what that means.

when you hook it up to the computer, the computer will recognize it as external media, double click the camera icon, find the pictures, shift+click the first one, (hit the shift key at the same time you click the left mouse button) then shift + click the last picture or video on the camera, right click, when the popup menu comes up click copy. go to your hard drive to the appropriate folder, right click in it, and click paste, and voila their their. of course, most cameras come with their own software that does this automatically and come with very easy step by step instructions. make sure you follow them. also, you can find directions on the camera manufacturers site as well.
