Camera Drive
When connecting the camera using the USB cable for the first time a box will pop up "installing drivers" which are the USB mass storage device and video camera USB device. A new drive will be listed on your pc, as example: Removable Disk (J;)
Pictures and Videos
All media files will be saved to the "DCIM/100MEDIA folder on the camera drive. Right click any of the media files you created in the folder for options like Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete. What I do is highlight all media (or edit, select all), cut and paste them to a folder on my pc, this removes them off camera SD card and saves them to pc.

25 minutes of recording time will put you around 1.3 GB.
This cam can do up to 60 minutes of video on full charge.
Pictures are about 650KB each at 2048x1536

USB takes about 60 minutes to fully charge if the battery is completely empty.

SD Cards

SD cards range from 2-32 GB. The cards used are the Micro SD/TF/SDHC with storage space 4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB. Tip: TF = TransFlash, SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity. Your local computer store may sell these cards but you will probably find them cheaper online. The higher the class number (2, 4, 6...) the faster the read/write speed. Transcend, Kinston, and SanDisk are popular brands. Class numbers will be circled, see pic below.

Class is the rate in which data flows to and from the card.
Class 2 = 2MB/second
Class 8 = 8MB/second
Class 10 = 10MB/second
This is the minimum data transfer for each card.

When inserting the SD card the brass pins on card will face towards top of camera.
To remove or insert SD card push card IN until you hear a "click" sound.

Pros / Cons

Pros: Sharp clear audio/video. The new mini 8 pin USB makes a much better connection than the standard mini USB. Battery and lens use a plug-in type connector for ez replacement. Using the configuration utility (GUI) you can create your own settings. You can also view videos and pictures directly from camera to tv using A/V cable.

Cons: None
