Did the camera not come with Cyberlink Power Directtor to edit the video. The indiviual video files should play in Media Player and maybe in Media Center. Are you missing a video codec try downloading Vista codec pack.

On ClickHere they advise to change the .mod file extension to .mpg or .avi then they play in VLC

About getting the .mod files onto your laptop - have you tried just copying them to a Folder? then you could just change the file ext before you play them in VLC
