When I first got the camera it would record for about 18 seconds before it said the memory card was full(without a memory card). So I bought a 2gb kodak memory card for it but when I put in the memory card after only 18 seconds it said the memory was full i don't know If it's the memory card or the camera?
I have a normal 720p HD camcorder, but the same problem, I was recording a Warhammer game, and I went to stop the recording when it frozze, and when I did a hard reset (took the battery out then put it in again.), it said "memory full", and NONE of the buttons worked... and when I tried to format it, it said "format OK", but froze up. this was aftter I hard reset for 5 minutes.

The hour glass symbol means you have ended a video and the camera is saving it. If it does it on it's own, it might mean you have jammed the recording button. Try tapping it a little or pulling it out a little to get it back to normal. If that doesn't work, your camera may be malfuntioning. If you can't get it to get unjammed, get a friend or family member to help you. Take an easy on it or the camera will break and you can ever use the recording button again.
Here is what you do. You take out the tiny Memory card and blow on and it, and blow i the inside. Then insert memory card. Take out batteries and put the batteries back in. Push Power and Start Recording., Chaow
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..
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.
