Flip HD Won't Return to Full 60-minutes-Recycle Bin Doesn't Work

I have the same problem that others have posted regarding the Flip not returning to full 60-minutes after you upload them. I am reposting as a new thread because I have tried all the advice on this site and even on the Flip support page, to no avail.

I have deleted everything from the Flip, connected to the PC and deleted the recycle bin. I even turned it on and off 8 times like the Flip site suggests. Still my camera shows 38 minutes available and if you go to Windows Explorer, shows 1.36GB used even though I can only see about 100MB of data. (I have my PC set to view hidden files and there is nothing there).

Is there anyway to reset or reformat the hard drive? Somehow take it back to factory settings?

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Don't know if you ever found your solution, but check out this page - http://manitouheights.com/2009/09/03/flip-mino-ultra-camera-video-show-correct-time-remaining/.

I've also discovered that you shouldn't click on the little box to erase the videos after transferring them to your computer. That's what seems to screw up the timer.

Windows files deleted in error can i get them back?


You might be able to recover deleted files by looking for them within your Recycle Bin. Go to your desktop and double-click on the Recycle Bin icon to view a list of deleted files. When you find the files you want to restore, right-click them and select Restore. The restored files should return their original location prior to deletion.

After removing the movies from my flip video camcorder it says camcorder empty, but the time left says 00:00. If I try to record it says camcorder full.


Your videos may still be in the Recycle Bin/Trash. Try plugging the device back in to your computer, then check the Recycle Bin to see if the movies are there. If they are, delete them from the Recycle Bin (or empty the bin completely) and they will be permanently removed from the device.

Lost time on flip ultra video camera,was 2 hr, now 1:45


The Flip has a hidden file folder where it stores files that might not have been properly removed. To clear these off the Flip. Use the control panel on your PC to allow access to hidden folders and hidden files. Once this is enabled, search the Flip for a folder called "trashes". Emptying this folder will clear the memory and return the Flip to it's full time.

Flip Mino HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?


return it for a refund! i bought one, it did the same as yours. i returned it and bought the 2nd one. It did the same as the first one (and the same as yours.)

It is a piece of junk. Supposedly the previous Flips were good, unfortunately, I didn't have the previous models so my experiences only are bad.

I deleted a file with about 60 flip videos by mistake. How do I recover them?


Here is a free recovery software which I have had very good results:
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/restoration.HTML

YMMV. It depends if the deleted files were overwritten with new files after they were marked as deleted. I hope it works for you.

The files may still be in the recycle bin if you didn't delete them directly. Double click the recycle bin icon on your desktop. If your files are there, click on them, then click "restore this item" under "recycle bin tasks" in the left sidebar.

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.

I deleted the recycle icon by accident i would like to get it back please?


Assuming you didn’t turn off all your desktop icons (right-click your desktop, choose View from the menu, and choose Show Desktop Icons if it doesn’t have a check next to it, which will turn them back on), it’s easy to get back, so stop your sweating and follow these simple steps.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and choose Personalize

  2. Click on the Change Desktop Icons link in the upper left hand corner
    delrb2.jpg
  3. In the Desktop Icons Settings window, check the Recycle Bin box and click OK
    delrb7.jpg
WORKAROUND in case the above does not work loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); If you cannot restore the Recycle Bin by using the resolutions that are listed in this article, work around this issue by creating a shortcut to the Recycle Bin: 1. Click Start, and then click My Computer. 2. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 3. Click the View tab, and then click to clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 4. Click Yes when the warning message appears, and then click OK to close the Folder Options dialog box. 5. Click Folders on the toolbar.

Note If Folders is not visible on the toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Standard Buttons. 6. In the left pane, under Folders, locate the Recycle Bin folder, and then drag the Recycle Bin folder to the desktop. 7. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options. 8. Click the View tab, and then click to select the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click OK.Note This procedure does not re-create the original icon. However, this procedure restores most of the features of the Recycle Bin, including the following: • Delete a file by dragging it to the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop. • Retrieve a file that you deleted by double-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, right-clicking the file that you want to retrieve, and then clicking Restore. • Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin. When you use these step to work around the problem, you cannot right-click the Recycle Bin shortcut to access the Recycle Bin Properties. To set properties for the Recycle Bin, follow these steps: 1. Double-click the Recycle Bin shortcut on the Desktop. The Recycle Bin folder opens. 2. In the upper left corner of the Recycle Bin folder, right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and then click Properties.

"My Handheld PC" and "Recycle Bin" icons disappeared


This problem is experienced after following performance suggestions found in third-party documentation, on web sites, or in newsgroups. These suggestions instruct users to remove all folders from the desktop of Handheld PC Pro device in order to speed screen-repaint rates. Applying these same steps on a Handheld PC 2000 device causes all desktop icons to disappear. Microsoft has documented this issue (in Q289674): http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q289/6/74.ASP To restore the My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons on the device, follow these steps: 1. Tap Start, tap Programs, and then tap Windows Explorer. 2. Tap the My Documents folder, tap Send To on the File menu, and then tap Desktop as Shortcut. 3. "Soft" reset the MobilePro. The My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons should return to the desktop. Note that you must have at least one folder or shortcut on the desktop in addition to the My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons, or else the problem will recur.
