Format changes from one computer to another.....how come?

Just bought a new laptop.......I have been doing all my editing on the computer at home without a problem......all clips are saved in MPEG and everything works fine.....(ultimately posting them all on YouTube).  As I needed to get a new laptop anyway, I set it up so it would have plenty of giddyup to work on videos away from home.  When I copy the folder containing the video clips (all in MPEG) on the desktop at home and then copy the folder to the desktop on the new laptop, the clips have changed from MPEG to MOD format........This results in an error message when I try to preview the clip (in Windows Media Player) about being unable to find the app that created the clip......I can click "try it anyway" and the video will play but minus the audio.  I do all my previewing in Media Player to go through the clips quickly to sort out what I want to keep and what to toss out.
Why would the format change from MPEG to MOD when I copy the files from desktop at home to laptop?....anyone have any ideas?.....is there a phone number at Adobe that anyone knows of with a human on the other end that may be able to answer if I can figure it out here.  Thanks for any suggestions.

Welcome to the forum.
Now,
When I copy the folder containing the video clips (all in MPEG) on the desktop at home and then copy the folder to the desktop on the new laptop, the clips have changed from MPEG to MOD format
This is a new one to me. I have never seen any version of Windows that would change the file extension of any file copied, regardless of whether it was over a network, or to a new drive/folder.
Now, with the JVC cameras, their files are MOD and TOD (for HD material). Could you have copied the wrong folder? Otherwise, something really odd is going on. Could it be that you thought that you had copied a certain folder and actually got one with the same file names, but at the original level, when they were still .MOD?
Good luck,
Hunt

  • Block Diagram Changes from one computer to another.

    When programming in LabVIEW, I generally try to make my block diagrams as neat and orderly as possible. This gives the code a more professional look, as well as making it easier for someone else to quickly understand the program. However, I recently have started doing programming on more than one computer, and have found that my block diagram does not look the same from one computer to another (due to different monitor resolutions). Because of this, the nice, orderly block diagram that I made on one computer looks a bit jumbled on another. Is there any way to fix this, short of standardizing the monitor resolutions on every computer?

    One problem you might encounter is how the application font is rendered on different machines. All text-based diagram nodes (labels, property nodes, globals, locals,...) are affected (grow/shrink) if the font is not the same.

  • I need to change from one computer to another

    I bought my iPhone and learned that i had Mac OSx 10.3 and had to order an upgrade to 10.4 for iTunes to work with the iPhone... Anxious to get started, I used a pc at work to activate the phone and now, a week later -- using osx 10.4.10 and iTunes 7.4.2, I can't get iPhone to appear on the Mac. I can get it to appear on the PC (using xt) but nothing I can do will get it to launch on my mac.
    I've read through tons of threads on the subject and poured through the manual. I can't get it to appear. It won't show in the preferences for iTunes either.

    Your profile says "G5," but doesn't say which Mac you're using this on. What model are you plugging the iPhone into?
    Also, did you install iTunes before or after upgrading to 10.4 (Tiger)? And before or after updating to 10.4.10?
    It may be as simple as dragging iTunes (the Application) to the trash, then re-installing iTunes from Apple's web site.

  • How can I transfer work from one computer to another?

    How can I transfer work from one computer to another?

    Welcome to the forum.
    I can think of three basic ways to accomplish what you wish to do:
    Use the Project Archiver to archive your Project (and check the box to gather the media files), to an external HDD. Probably the easiest way to do it.
    Copy the Project and ALL media files to an external HDD, but be prepared to relink the media files to the Project, as the drive letter (part of the Absolute Path) will have changed.
    Edit loosely, and Share to an AV file, which will be Imported into a New Project on that second computer. Or, edit VERY tightly, and do the same. I like the first, as removing, replacing Transitions, etc., can be much more difficult, unless that "tight edit" is 100% done.
    Good luck,

  • How can i copy apps from one computer to another?

    how can i copy apps from one computer to another?

    You don't mention which operating system you have so it's difficult to provide an answer since the mac and Windows stores the files differently.
    The other thing you can do is just re-download the apps from the iTunes Store. Just login to the iTunes Store on the other computer using the same Apple ID. On the right-hand side of the iTunes Store page you will see a 'Purchased' link. Clicking on that will take you to a page that will list your past purchases which you can re-download to the new computer.

  • How do I move ITunes from one computer to another

    I am trying to move my ITunes from one computer to another. I downloaded ITunes on my new computer and loged in with my account information. Then I pluged my IPod into the comuter and imported all my songs. I thought that everything would come over but none of my apps did. I want to synce my IPod up with my new computer how do I do it?

    Backup everything to an external hard drive with this User Tip.
    Use the same process to clone the library into a new empty iTunes folder on the new computer.
    Deauthorise the old box if you don't need to access protected content on it any more.
    Use SyncToy from time to time, and in particular before every iTunes update, to keep the backup up-to-date.

  • How do you move adobe acrobat XI pro from one computer to another?

    how do you move adobe acrobat XI standard pro from one computer to another?

    Hi jeszamom,
    You'll need either the installation media (if you bought from a retailer), or a downloaded installer. If you don't have the CD, you can download Acrobat from this links in this document: Download Acrobat products | Standard, Pro | XI, X - Adobe.
    It's OK to keep it on the other computer; your license allows you to install it on up to two computers. But, if you'd like you can deactivate it on that old computer, which would free up that activation for use on yet another computer. Please see Activation & Deactivation Help - Adobe
    You'll need your serial number to activate on the new computer.
    Please let us know how it goes.

  • How do I get songs from one computer to another?

      I had found it once on apple support, but I'm having trouble finding it again. Can someone tell me how you get your songs from one computer to another? I'm consolidating all the songs from my wife's laptop on to mine so we can share the same library, but I don't know how to get her songs on my computer, and as a result, my iTunes.

    Go to the itunes folder and copy all of the songs on to an external hard drive.  Then copy them from the hard drive to the other computer
    You could also use home sharing which will send the songs over your wireless.

  • How do I transfer my bookmark toolbar from one computer to another? Not the bookmarks in general, but the toolbar...

    How do I transfer my firefox bookmark TOOLBAR from one computer to another? I have transferred the bookmarks, but the toolbar did not get transferred with it...

    Here's what I do when transferring from one profile to another, on the same computer.
    Go to "organize bookmarks", click on "bookmark toolbar", click on any bookmark in that category, click on menu "organize", click "select all", click on "organize" again, click "copy".
    Then close firefox, start it again with the other profile, go to "organize bookmarks", click on "bookmark toolbar", click "organize", click "paste".
    Now if you are moving to another computer, try save the copied content to a text file and move that text file to the other computer, then use "paste" inside firefox.
    Good luck.

  • How do I transfer my checked songs from one computer to another - tried exporting library playlist etc but no luck! Please help! I have 26,000 songs - 17,000 are selected and I can't run down the list on my new computer and re-check 17,000 songs! Thanks!

    Make a smart playlist of your whole library but only checked songs - #4 on  http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1801
    Highlight all files in that playlist, then drag to the other drive.  This isn't preserving any playlists or whatever, just copying files from one drive to another.
    You might want to delete the smart playlist this once you are done because it will probably gobble up resources with that many files.
