This is a reminder to myself if nothing else.  Just spent an hour installing useless software and trying to figure out why my videocamera was not letting me transfer files.
In the end I realized I was using a USB cord that is ONLY meant for charging (one of those with multiple heads of different formats).
UGH what a wasted hour of my life.
As soon as I connected a proper mini usb cable everything worked fine.
