importing standard mov files from PC to digital camera Nikon Coolpix 3700

hi !

I'd like to show friends clips I downloaded on internet with my camera. I know how to convert any files to quicktime format (MOV), all the format descritpion is exactly the same as the format of nikon camera (quality, codec, compression method, resolution, sound...), however, the camera doesn't recognize the movies I import into it.
does anybody know how to convert standard MOV files in Nikon MOV files ?

The naming convention of the file may have to be the same as well. For example, if the Coolpix has the following convention for videos:, where xxx is a number such as 003, then you have to name your video that way.

Have you tried that?

You can also shoot another video in the camera to see what naming convention it comes up with, and whether any other files are generated in addition to the video.

Yeah, I've tried the same thing. I've even tried to rename the file to match the file names on the camera. That didn't work. The closest I got was as follows. I opened the Nikon Picture Perfect program and opened a web movie i wanted on my camera into the program. I also opened a movie i had taken with my camera. I single clicked on the movie i took and on the right hand side of the screen it has a "more information" button. I opened that up and i found that the movie i took had info embedded into it that the movie i got off the web didn't. I copied the info and tried to paste it on the web video info sheet, but it wouldn't let me. I could however paste it onto a word document. Now I was wondering if you could possibly open it in some kind of file altering program so that you could tag the necessary info to the video you want so you could watch it on your camera, and/or another tv with the a/v inputs.

Title: using Sony digital camera as a picture viewer
Weblog: Camera Hacker
Excerpt: I have seen the KODAK EASYSHARE Picture Viewer at CostCo for as low as $99, whereas it retails for $149.95. But you know, I've been thinking, I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T11 digital camera that is almost just as small and as light as the KODAK EASYSHARE Picture Viewer. The DSC-T11 is just one inch . . .
