Question about Aiptek A-HD 720P Flash Media Camcorder

1 Answer

Aiptek camera Have used this with a helmet camera. I tried recording last night and "file Failed" came up. Have used the camera before, once or twice it did not record at all. Now it has locked up and had to remove battery to turn off. I had purchased another SD 4 gb card yesterday and put it in the camera, but took out and used the older one and that is when the file failed comment appeared. What can I do??

Hmm.. this is a hard one. Well, you may have the SD car on Lock, but if that's not the problem, you either used up the memory, or need to upgrade the firmware Sorry I can't answer in great detail. I'll try to find some more information ASAP. Sincerely: (youtube user) animation508

    The SD (Secure Digital) card is what stores the memory on the camera.
    The Firmware is like the software. It's like Mac OS X, or Windows Vista. It basically is the code and interface for the camera's software. The latest firmware is 2.00.2  (that's what I run)

What if I don't have the disk


Shouldn't be needed. The camera records to a flash card. Just get a flash card reader and transfer/view files that way.

Try connecting with a USB cable. Most newer computers and operating systems will detect the camera without the manufacturers disk.

Deleting files on HD720p Aiptek camcorder


You are not doing anything wrong. For some reason, Aiptek doesn't give you this option on the camera. You have to insert you SD card into a reader and delete it that way. Ya, I know, doesn't make sense. Also, a feature I hate is it does place your videos into one continuous file. Only video clips, so each time you stop then start recording, it creates a new file. Anyway, I've had my Aiptek since 10/2008 and no problems so far. Great indoor videos. Not too crazy about the still pictures though.

File failed message


The same thing happens to me when I try to record thru the "A/V in jack". It appears (my first thought) that the camera is trying to record to the internal drive and it runs out of memory really quick. But then, when I play it back, (the small 15 seconds or so) the audio and video are not sync'd. Most of the time at least. Very inconsistent. It also locked up and froze for me too. I had to remove the battery to reset it. Once or twice it recorded normal, (once when I reset the default settings and another time just out of the blue) - I thought I had it solved but it went back to "File Failed" after about 17-20 seconds of recording on the next record session.

I have the thing packed up ready to take back, but am looking for a solution so I can keep it..

I can't get my Window's Vista to reconize my Aiptek 720 Hd Camcarder. Why??


You need quicktime, because the Aiptek 720p records to .mov (quicktime) format. If you still have the CD that the camcorder came with, the software is on it. If not, go to google, and search for quicktime free version download. Although I recommend the pro version, due to the fact that it allows conversion of files. It's about $20. Hope this helped-

Sound doesn't transfer from camera into computer


It most likely IS the .mov file. I recommend buying quicktime pro, $20,  which will allow you to convert the file, or if you get the free version of quicktime, and the video and audio play fine with it, You can use a screen recorder and turn off the "record external Mic" mode, and turn ON "Record Computer Audio" Once you're done converting (or recording) You can go ahead and edit, Hoped this helped- sincerely: animation508 (youtub username)

Aiptek - Video and sound is out of sync


Are you recording in High Def? When I tried that on mine the same thing happened. That definitely has to be played back on Hi Def TV and the computer probably isn't capable of handling that. Switch to DVD mode, or Web cam mode and you won't have a problem.

Aiptek IS DV2


Seems like its time to flush the contents of the memory card of camcorder to a computer.
There's a limited amount of memory in every memory card. After constant recording, the memory  gets full and the recorded stuff needs to be either deleted or flushed (uploaded to a computer) to make room for newly recorded stuff.

Unless you have a blank memory card, your problem should be solved by the above mentioned idea.
