Hi there,

I am trying to view video footage from a Sony HDR-CX190 on my laptop. We use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

I'm not having much luck. I am borrowing the camera and not familiar with how it works yet.They only have an SD card, and not a connecting usb cable unfortunately. They can't find it.

Has the video footage perhaps gone to the internal memory of the camera? Or is it on the SD card? How do I find out?

Also, will Ubuntu read these files anyway? Is it all compatible or am I wasting my time? I'm getting the error message:Could not load image 'AVIN0001.INT'.TGA image type not supported?

Many Thanks!
Allie :)

Google the manual to find out what format it records in. It probably stores on the SD card, so go buy a cheap SD USB card reader and pop the card in.

TGA are images, not videos, so you're not in the right folder.
