K5 video - Image Can Not Be Displayed - HELP

So I shot a video today and when I got home and popped out the card as usual and inserted into the card reader on my Mac I noticed it would not load into iMovie. The AVI file was there but I could not open it or do anything. The rest of the pictures I took where all there but I could not see the video. I added the card back to the K5 and got Image Can NOt Be Displayed when I get to the video. it shows --min--sec .

Anyone have this happen? is there any chance the video is there and I need to do something to get it out?

This is a first time so a little strange. I really would like the video as it was from school band show. It was maybe 4 minutes long.

Thanks in advance.

You need a specialized codec in order to view the files properly on your computer, so I wouldn't worry too much about that error message. Players like VLC can generally play the videos, but sometimes the AVI index has to be "fixed". Not 100% sure why ivideo is having issues, though, so I'll let someone else chime in on that.

The second issue on your K-5 screen suggests that the video file got corrupted, though- did you forget to eject the SD card?
