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.

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 flip videos from hard drive thinking I successfully transfered them to a portable external hard drive now I cant retrieve them


If you're running windows, check your recycle bin. They would go there unless they were too big. Then you would get a dialogue box when you deleted them saying they were too big for the Recycle Bin and would have to be permanently deleted.

Hope that helps, and I hope you an get them back. If you have any further questions, please comment. Please take the time to rate my response, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

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.

Take out the battery and leave it out for 48-72 hours. I had the same problem and Flip support suggested this solution which fixed the problem.
