    Same problem. On my Mac, I copied and pasted the video from the DCIM folder. Then deleted the files from the camera. When I tried to take a video it says that the camera is full. When I try to push the trash button on the camera it says camera is empty. When I plug the camera back into my computer, the folder looks empty with zero bytes.

    Same problem. Camera empty, memory says it's full.

  • Anonymous May 03, 2009

    Just bought the flip HD video camera. I moved the videos to my computer and emptied the camera. I have no space to record on the camera. Tech support advised dumping all of the videos on the computer but that did not work. Finally, I removed the software and I got my full 60 minutes of camera time back. The bad news is every time you plug the camera into a computer the problem comes back.

    Flip has virtually NO support for the product line. They send email responses that are pretty much useless and you can not talk to anyone.

    DO NOT BUY THE FLIP VIDEO CAMERA!!! JUNK, JUNK JUNK and NO support.

Someone else posted on another feed, and it worked SO well I had to restate it here.
Empty the trash on your mac. I had the same problem, "Camera is full" but in actuality "Camera was empty". This guy said to plug the camera into the computer (macs in our cases) and empty the trash folder on your computer.
Fixed my problem completely and I didn't have to do anything crazy! Now next time it happens I'll know what to do, hope it helps you too! :)

Flip video instruction manual


Had the same problem. After trying everything, this worked:
From a command prompt, list directories. You might see one called ".Trashes\501" -- this is the directory where I found all the videos hiding that we tried every trick in the book to delete. If you see video files in this directory, simply delete them using the command prompt. Then exit the command line interface and check your camera. You should have a full 60 minutes of recording time restored.
Hope this works for you!

When we turn on the lego camera we get an exclamation point in a box and are unable to do anything. What's happening?


We had the same problem and we figured the memory was full. You need to delete the images. Connect your camera to the computer, it will show up on your desktop, double click on the icon, find the images, copy them to your computer (to save them) and then move them into the trash (we have a Mac, I'm not sure if it works the same way on a PC) and then don't forget to empty the trash. We forgot to empty it first and it's important. The camera works great ever since!

Push record says its full, push trash says its empty


Download all the video using flipshare, and save all and delete what is left on the camera.

If you want to erase all the video, press the trash icon, and it will say yes/no/all. Select ALL by pressing the right arrow and then press play. THIS DELETES ALL VIDEO make sure it is saved.

Sony ICD-UX70/UX80 digital recorder...memory full problem


I solved the problem by connecting my Sony IC Recorder to the USB port on my McBook Pro computer and then emptying the trash can on the Mac computer. Visually (flashing red indicator light) and audibly (the recorder's sound that indicates something being erased), it was clear that mp3 files were finally, really being erased on the Sony recorder even though the recorder's own screen display had previously shown only empty folders and no files. Dragging files to the trash can doesn't really erase them unless you also empty the trash. All dragging to the trash can does is somehow mark the files in a way that, unfortunately, makes them invisible to Sony's file detection system.

Lost storage capacity


I had the same exact problem... then someone told me the fix... you have to "empty trash" on your computer (when the camcorder is plugged into your USB) - this will "empty" the trash on your computer, but also empty on your flip too...

I guess what happens when you delete all files from the "100 Video" file is that your camcorder moves all files into its own "trash" (on the device) - so the camera "shows" that there are no videos, but in reality, they are still on the flash memory on the device..

hope this makes sense and works for you.

Flip video camcorder says camcorder full and then camcorder empty


I found the solution!
Just put the Flip camera back into any computer on which you deleted files — then, with the Flip camera still attached, empty your trash bin.
All of the time comes right back. The only catch is if you have deleted files on many different computers. At some point, you will have to go back to those computers, insert the Flip, empty the trash and then you'll get your minutes back.
It's awesome. I am back in love with the Flip.

SD card full in spite of all files deleted - what do do?


OK, so if you want to delete the photos off your s.d. card, Simply open the 'terminal' application located in the utilities folder.
Then enter this into the box:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

That will then make the .Trashes folder of the sd card show up!
Open it, go through the '501' folder, and there you go! Delete everything!

This happens because the card has it's own hidden trash.

Oh, and if you want to hide all the hidden files and folders again, simply open terminal, and enter THIS text:


defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
killall Finder

Cheers,

Lost time/inaccessible files on flip


This may sound risky, but I did this and my Camera is working perfectly again... If you don't have any videos on it you need to salvage too badly this should do the trick.

1) Plug it in (obviously)
2) Go to My Computer and right click your video camera
3) Click Format
4) I clicked restore device defaults because it sounded safe (but may not be necessary)
5) Click start and begin the reformatting

After this i went from my incorrect 27:11 min. remaining on the camera to the full 60. Still records perfectly and the software is still on it and works correctly. Hope it helps some of you out there =)
