Question about Pure Digital Flip Video Ultra Camcorder
I deleted video files from my flip mino by emptying the 100Video file on an iMac. I just dragged the .avi files to the trash. Both the camera and the software say there are no videos on the camera. But I now have only 31 seconds recording time.
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.

For Windows users who weren't successful with the "Empty Trash" solution and don't want to re-format the Flip memory, this is how I solved the problem of lost record time after two incidents of video file corruption (Flip Mino HD connected to PC with Windows XP):
I made a Windows standard disk check (no special tool) after which Windows had created a hidden folder named"FOUND.000" which contained a file with all the lost clusters of the corrupted videos (to see this folder you have to change your file explorer options to see all files/folders including protected system files). The file had just the size which I had been missing. I deleted the "FOUND.000" folder on the camcorder and now the it shows the full 60 minutes record time again.

One caveat: the Flip has to be plugged in to the SAME computer that you deleted the video on. I run a computer lab, and it took me awhile to realize that I had deleted the video from the Flip on a different computer?once I found the correct computer, this solution worked.
