    Is it possible to transfer PC movies back onto my camera and view them from the LCD (or take the camera with me and view them on a television)?

    I have a small Vivitar Vivicam 5386 (5 megapix). It records AVI movies. I can transfer them off the camera card to my PC and watch them with Realplayer or MediaPlayer. I can put them back onto the camera as well to watch them on the LCD.

    However, if I use another AVI file from my PC - NOT RECORDED FROM THE CAMERA- and transfer onto the card, the camera will not read it.

    It is a SD card and I am using a USB cable directly into the camera.
    The 'removable drive' card is displayed and accessed in windows explorer.
    The actual transfer, copy or viewing of files is not a problem.
    I do see files displayed on the camera card in WinExp, and they are in the same folder as the viewable pics or avi's taken with the camera.

    Thank you for any help.
