It isn’t your computer: this camera (although it is otherwise great) has serious interface issues with computers. Mine is driving me crazy and I am in South America, so all I can do is rely on these tech forums to try to get some clues. When I connect my camera to my computer, sometimes the computer sees it and it transfer files and edits just fine. Other times it sees and transfers, but then the software wont edit (says there is an error). Other times it sees it but the computer says it doesn’t recognize the device, and the software therefore wont run to upload the files. However, if I leave it plugged in long enough, *sometimes* like an hour later, it just all of a sudden recognizes it – but sometimes it never does, all day long. Sometimes I plug it in and it doesn’t show up on any drive at all, even if I change it from one USB port to another. There is a newer laptop here running Vista that never once has been able to see the camera, and an older one running XP that sees it every single time, but suffers a power surge because it is too old and tells me to unplug the device and reset the port and not to use it there again. When I can get my computer to recognize it, I immediately run the upgrade available on the site http://www.mysmallwonder.com/support/downloads.aspx and that usually fixes the problem for a few days – the computer can see the camera and recognize it for a few days – until it cant again! (Make sure to follow the instructions all the way through, which include disconnecting the camera from the computer and pressing the delete button on the camera after the download, and then turning the camera on again to finish the process.) The upgrade usually also fixes the software glitches (for when the computer recognizes it and I can upload videos, but not edit them, but today for example, the upgrade hasn’t fixed the glitches and I cannot edit at all. I am going to try deleting the RCA memory manager program and uploading again through the camera. One big problem I have is that I don’t have the original disk with me, so when the software goes psycho I have to download the program through the online upgrade that only will work when it interfaces with the plugged in camera – which depending on the day, may or may not be recognized by my computer, or even APPEAR on any drive. That’s where I am. Please let me know if anyone knows how to solve this.

My Flipshare video camera will not turn on. When I try to power it up on my computer or with the power cord, nothing happens. No light goes on, no nothing. Pleas help!


Hi d_cockerham,

You should try resetting your Ultra HD Flip Camcorder. Unfortunaately the support knowledgebase does not list the proceedure but I managed to get an email from them on how to proceed.

The steps to reset/resolve an issue where your UltraHD will NOT turn "On" is as follows:
  1. Remove the battery pack from the camcorder.
  2. Connect the camcorder to a powered USB port on your computer.
  3. When the "Connected" indicator comes on, insert the battery pack into the camcorder.
  4. Safe eject your camcorder from your computer.
  5. Reconnect your camcorder to your computer.
  6. The battery pack should now begin to charge within the camcorder
Hope this helps anyone else who encountered similar problems.

There is a reset button! Get a pin and push into the tiny hole at the bottom - inside the tripod screw hole. Push in and hold. The camera will reset. I called the Flip support - they were great !

USB Unplug Crash!(for a Flip Video Camcorder Mono HD)


this happened to me a few days ago, what you have to do is hold down the off button for 20 seconds. This technique is called hard reset, so it should work if you do that. :)

Movies won't reconize computer but photos do.


do you have a Firewire cable? that is the only way to retrieve video off of the camcorder. If you don't have one you probably need a 4-6 pin connector. Hope this helped, Snowsurfer58

Make sure you have the latest version of USB on your computer. I just purchased a Small Wonder EZ101 on ebay and it connects to my laptop without a problem.
