Zero space to record but no files on camera

I had the files on my computer and deleted them. So now I have the mino HD off the computer and it says that I have zero time left to record but I cannot delete any files off of it because there are none on there.

    I have the same thing happening!  I tried to manually delete videos off the flip, and now it says I only have 5 minutes left to record, even though there are no videos saved on the flip.

    The same thing is starting to happen to me. I have no videos on the camcorder but it says that I only 23 minutes left (I have the 1-hr mino).

    I have the same issue!  I added videos onto my computer off of my flip mino, and now it says that I only have 5 minutes of available recording time.  I manually deleted everything off of the camera, but nothing happens.  Why oh why, I loved using the flip until this!

MAC Users....

Remember those annoying "hidden files"...that's the problem.

Go to Utilities/ Disk Utility/ (select the Mino)/ Erase (up top)/ Erase (near the bottom)

and the problem will be resolved.....

Make it a great day

I had a similar problem, I recorded video's on my Mino HD, and copied them to my Mac. Then deleted the files on my Mino HD using my computer (as it was hooked up to my MAC).

When I went to record, the Mino HD kept saying it was full, but no video's were stored. I had deleted the files through my computer, and even the DCIM folder...

BUT - I reconnected my Mino and emptied the trash bin on my mac and WALA!!!! It was back to 60 minutes of recording time...

Weird!

Hi there, I want to record my son's graduation this week but my SONY HDAVCHD Handycam Model # CMDS Hybrid HDD keeps on showing a message "HD movie area in HDD is full" . I have deleted all...


Hi Antony,


Firstly please check if the source for recording is the inbuilt space of hdd or the memory card.

If it's hdd which is selected as source for the recording , then may be you have deleted files from the memory card and not hdd and if it's the memory card that has been selected , then may be you have deleted files from your hdd and not from the card, which makes the camera show up this message.


It's always better to restart the camera after you have deleted a huge amount of files , as it would auto refresh and calculate the free space appopriately.

If you have any specfic queries , further , feel free to ask.


Hope this helps ..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

I deleted the files off my flip mino its now saying no memory


Make sure that when you delete them on a mac, that while it is still plugged in you empty the trash, if you delete but do not empty the trash, when you remove it from the computer the used space will remain

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.

To regain record time we are told to re-format the flip video ult


I had the same problem so I tried the thing on the website and it didn't work so I looked it up on Youtube and someone figured out how to do it. I tried it and I got all 60 minutes back. You should try this, it probably works.
PS instead of 5 nines it's 6 nines.

You may have CDs stored in the Jukebox taking up space- if so delete them.

You may have images stored in the photoviewer - again, delete...

Have you done any disc backups, and forgot to delete the backup file? Goto bottom of copy menu for disc backup, then in the disc backup menu, choose delete backup file.
