    I have movies on my camcorder that won't play on my computer no matter what I do. I tried playing them in Windows Media player - nothing but sound wave images. Then I tried playing them in Windows Movie Maker and it says it can't import them because of missing "Codec" files. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Try to copy the whole dcim folder instead of opening the entire folder and copying all files. It will work..

Well I have a flip video camera with 27 videos i recorded but when I plug it into my pc there is no dcim folder??


I feel your pain! I too had valuable videos on my FlipCam and it was no longer being recognized by my Windows 7 desktop, Win XP laptop, or MacBook Pro. I tried everything including hard resets, replacing drivers on my computers, all without success.

However, I finally figured this out! Here's what you do:

STEP 1: Remove the batteries from the FlipCam (If it's the same HD model as mine, there's a sliding unlock switch on the bottom near the tripod mount.. Then the front shell slides down.)

STEP 2: Plug the USB plug attached to the camera into your computer's USB port. Voila! The FLIPVIDEO device now appears and you can go into the DCIM\100VIDEO directory to download your videos. Or, if you have FlipShare installed, this should launch as well.

Two more points:

1. You may need to delete the bad USB Mass Storage Device from (PC) Control Panel/System/Drivers/USB Controllers. Then plug in your batteryless FlipCam.

2. When you put the battery back in, odds are you won't see the FlipCam any more. However, now that you know the solution, just remove the battery to extract your videos and then put the battery back in.

Hop this helps you like it did me!

connect the camer aand close flipshare if it opened, connect the open the camera as a drive (in my computer on windows, or on the desktop in mac os) and copy the DCIM Folder somewhere you can find it, disconnect the camera, open flipshare, click help, Recover other flipshare files, and choose the dcim directory you copied to the computer(if the video files are in a subfolder, choose that instead)

Error 27.2 showing when trying to upgrade the software


I finally figured this out. The problem is that the software files on the camera are locked. To see this, open a Finder window and view the contents of the FlipVideo device. Click "Get Info" on most any of the files. Note that the "Locked" checkbox is checked.

Solutions:
1) You can go through all the files and Unlock them. It is hard to get all of them.
2) Create a folder "old" on the camera. Move all of the files (except DCIM and Info.bin) to the "old" folder (in case Step 4 fails). You may have to unlock them to move them.
3) Go to /Applications and right-click on FlipShare. Choose "Show Package Contents". Go to Resources/Upgrade.
4) Copy all the contents of the Upgrade folder to the Camera. That's what the upgrade program was trying to do.

After that, try the camera to make sure it works. After you are sure, you can delete the "old" folder.

Happy videos!

I have the same problem....someone please post solution!
I've tried systematically deleting each of the database type files on the Flip (while keeping a saved copy on my computer hard drive). This doesn't seem to help. I've just got one minute of video it will allow me to shoot!!!!!

TRANSFERRING RECORDED IMAGES AND VIDEOS FROM YOUR VPCT700 DIGITAL CAMERA TO YOUR COMPUTER

Connecting the Camera to Your Computer
1. Connect one end of the USB cable to the PC/AV terminal of the camera.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable to an available USB port on your computer.
3. Turn on your camera.
-The [USB] screen appears.
4. Select [PC] with the Up and Down Arrow buttons, and press the SET button.
5. From the Windows desktop, double click on “My Computer”.
6. Look for a new “Removable disk” icon. This “Removable disk” is actually the memory card in your camera. Typically, the camera will be assigned drive letter “E” or higher.
7. Double click on the removable disk and locate the DCIM folder.
8. Double click on the DCIM folder to open it to find more folders.
-Your recorded images and video clips will be inside these folders.
-Copy & Paste or Drag-N-Drop image and video files to a folder on your computer.

Mac users: Double-click the “untitled” or “unlabeled” disk drive icon on our desktop. iPhoto may automatically launch.


Downloading images and Video Files
When the camera is turned on and connected to your computer, it is considered to be a disk drive, just like a floppy disk or CD. You can download (transfer) images by copying them from the “Removable disk” (“untitled” or “unlabeled” disk on a Macintosh) to your computer hard drive.

Windows
Open the “removable disk” and subsequent folders by double clicking on them. Your images are inside these folder(s). Select the images that you want, and then choose “Copy” from the “Edit” menu. Open the destination location (folder) and choose “Paste” from the “Edit” menu. You may also drag and drop image files from the camera to a desired location.

Macintosh
Open the “untitled” disk icon, and the destination location on your hard disk. Drag and drop from the camera to the desired destination.

NOTE
- Memory card users may prefer to use a memory card reader (highly Recommended).
- Video playback application is not included with the package. Make sure that video playback application has been installed in your computer.

Try not running the Syn software at all. Try copying the files over manually.

After plugging in the USB cable you should get a small popup that says its connected.

Click on "My computer" and under "Devices with removable storage" you should see a new device called DV.

double click on that and you should see 3 folders. DCIM, EBOOK, and MP3

Copy your mp3 files from your computer into the mp3 folder of the camera and it should work.

Acessing Still Photos off finalized disk


A DVD player may not recognise JPEG, but will recognise MPEG, which is why the DC210 has the Photomovie facility to convert the still photos from JPEG to MPEG, but you can still get to see your still photos on your PC, because they are on the disc.

Here's how you do it.

The disc has two folders - VIDEO_TS for videos and Photomovie and DCIM for the still images. Inside DCIM there is a folder called 101CANON. Open this folder to see the still images - they all have .jpg file extensions.
It may be quicker to copy the 101CANON folder to your PC, and open the copied file on your PC.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
