File number reset each time i offload footage

Hi, so each time I offload my clips and delete the files on the card and start shooting again the unit still gives the file names 00000.mts, 00001.mts, 00002.mts, etc. so now in editing i have duplicating file names, which sucks big time. is there a way to have the camera keep the number rolling after you delete files? anyone? thanks! jamie

Re: file number reset each time i offload footage

Probably you have solved it by now, but here goes anyway. Do not delete ALL files on your computer. Copy what you wish to keep but leave all the files on the card, then format the card in the camera or erase all. Check the setup menu, there should be card format or the like.

How do you reset the counter when shooting video?

The resetting of the counter is not a problem. As a matter of fact you can not reset it because it is meant to be continuous as long as the video is the same. However there is way around it. After recording your first part when you want to reset you go to 'play'. You play forward for less than a second and stop. When you go back to record the camera resets itself and thinks its starting a new video. It goes back to 000. You keep on doing this when you want to reset again. Normally in professional circles the time code should be continuous for editing with professional Non linear editing software that's why the cameras do not reset the time code. But you can get along the way I have told you here for your purpose.

I have tried to finalise the disc but it is frozen at finalising please wait, how long should it take I am worried I will lose the footage, thanks

Hi mark_carruth,

If the video is too long , then probably you would have to wait for quite a long time,

Therefore a better way is to shoot video at specific intervals , as it would create different files for each footage , so even if you lose one file , you have the others with you.

Now , in this case , I would advice you to please wait till the time you get the disc finalized and even if it's not finalized , and the disc has been written , then there is not much to worry as you might lose only a small part of the footage towards the end or ,you might not lose any part but the DVD might not work or be detected in PCs. It might be shown up as a blank one , which you know is not.

Hope this helps ..:)

My flip camera says its empty but when I try to record it says its full??

Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.

If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.

From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC (you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from the card while it's in the camera.

Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full functionality of your memory card.

Deleting files on HD720p Aiptek camcorder

You are not doing anything wrong. For some reason, Aiptek doesn't give you this option on the camera. You have to insert you SD card into a reader and delete it that way. Ya, I know, doesn't make sense. Also, a feature I hate is it does place your videos into one continuous file. Only video clips, so each time you stop then start recording, it creates a new file. Anyway, I've had my Aiptek since 10/2008 and no problems so far. Great indoor videos. Not too crazy about the still pictures though.

Try Browsing the folders I Hope your footage is in one of those folders.
To Make It easier Goto Folder options click detail for folder check dates for the shooting time & open those 1st also if the camcorders timer is not set right may look in folders day earlier. Also look for big files Dvd takes lot of space.

Belive you are not being given chance to record or finalize becuse camcorder automaticaly did so. Rarely but it happens when a disk will have errors on it & when it finalzies you can lose info/footage.
Why I still prefer tape.

Lost files with camcorder everio gz-hd7

From my experience with Hard Drive based Camcorders.. you're best bet is to treat them like a computer.. use an application like Data Rescue II to recover the files from the camcorder.. once the files are recovered, reformat the HD on teh camcorder and you should be abel to start recording new footage again.

Screen says video management file is broken

Apparently the firmware on the camera is very finicky especially if you do any deleting/renaming of movie files via windows and the USB (rather than using the camera's menu interface). My suggestion (worked for me anyway) connect via USB, explore the JVC HD, find your videos, save them on to your computer (drag and drop, or edit copy, etc) then once you've accomplished that, go into the camera's menu, then settings, find the option to FORMAT HD, do it.

This fixed my dilemma, hope it helps others out there.

Need to delete memory

You need to remove the memory card from the camcorder and place it into a pc or photo shops computer. This will allow you to view the saved items on the memory card. You can then save these to disc and delete the contents on the card.
