    You just finished shooting and are trying to upload the video from the videocamera? What are you trying to upload it to? Are you sure your cord is connecting and reading properly?

    Okay. What'd you save the file as before you burned it to the CD?

    It's possible that the information is not saved on the CD in the first place. I have no idea how to help you out.

    How old is your computer? I know my parents' computer can't read the DVD that I've burned on their recordable DVD-player for example, and I've just assumed that's because their computer is starting to get old.

    That's possibly because a recordable DVD-player needs to "finalise" a disc before it can be read on other machines.

    As for the OP, we still don't have enough information. Are we talking about a CD or a DVD? What files are on it? What programs did you use? What format is the video in?

    I had finalised it and it worked fine on my computer and old DVD-player.

    Going by the topic it's rewritable DVD, right?

    Some computers (and DVD players) can't read rewritable disks, for whatever reasons.
    It's common, I believe. My old computer couldn't read RW's and it wasn't even that old.

    I'd suggest to burn the movie on a CD instead, or a regular DVD and try to copy it onto your hard drive again. :)
