Question about Pure Digital Point and Shoot Video Camcorder

1 Answer

Deleted videos off of computer and time remaining when empty is not 30 min

Hi, I recently deleted all of my videos off of my camcorder through windows explorer (both the videos and their picture thumbnails) without deleting them directly with the camera. Now, when I turn the camera on it displays like 26min even though it is completely empty.... any suggestions? I'm pretty computer savy so I can handle some complex answers if need be.

    I deleted one video while still plugged into computer using windows and now I turn on camera and it shows 56 minutes instead of 60 minutes of time. The camera reads empty. What is going on?

Hey all, I had the same problem after deleting video on windows explorer. I couldn't figure it out untill I plugged camera into computer and opened files using windows media player. The video I had deleted came up in the playlist. I went to 'open from location' (right click while on the video tag line) And it tookme to a folder named 100video. There was the video I had deleted. So I deleted it from there while still hooked up and now my camera reads 60minutes again. Try it. Good luck

Kakima.....................Thank you for your resonce to my problem.I hve deleted it many times on various web pages without success. I have deleted files many times but this one remains (630 MB) Would you...

Are you trying to delete the manual from your computer or from the web?

If from your computer, bring up the file browser (Windows-E on a Windows machine, for example). Navigate to the folder the manual is in, right-click the file, and select "Delete." This has nothing to do with any web pages. You can do this just as well when you're not connected to the internet at all. This will also delete the entire manual, not just the first page.

If you need me to be more explicit, you'll have to be the same. What version of what operating system are you running on your computer? Have you tried to delete the manual as described? What happens when you do? Does it keep coming back? Have you tried emptying your trashcan or recycle bin?

Hello i have a pure digital model #225 and its good to record for 30 minutes after i deleted all the videos after i add them to my computer the minutes say 16.00 is there a way to reset this to...

the format in your camera is RAW once its transfered to the PC it is upconverted to a Mpg,Mov or AVI after witch it was not 30 mins in s the first place it was only half that.

Editing a video to say 30 mins can be done in windows movie maker, you might need to add some content to it tho.

The other purpose for this is so you can upload the video to youtube without a time limit restriction.

let me know

I deleted the files off my flip mino its now saying no memory

Make sure that when you delete them on a mac, that while it is still plugged in you empty the trash, if you delete but do not empty the trash, when you remove it from the computer the used space will remain

Lost record time due to corrupted video files

I have the same problem....someone please post solution!
I've tried systematically deleting each of the database type files on the Flip (while keeping a saved copy on my computer hard drive). This doesn't seem to help. I've just got one minute of video it will allow me to shoot!!!!!

Recover 'lost' flip video

I had success with this camcorder recovery software named asoftech data recovery before

You need to take out the memory card or hard disk from camcorder, and then connect the memory card or hard disk to computer, you can then use asoftech data recovery software to recover lost videos.

Lost storage capacity

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.

Lost time/inaccessible files on flip

This may sound risky, but I did this and my Camera is working perfectly again... If you don't have any videos on it you need to salvage too badly this should do the trick.

1) Plug it in (obviously)
2) Go to My Computer and right click your video camera
3) Click Format
4) I clicked restore device defaults because it sounded safe (but may not be necessary)
5) Click start and begin the reformatting

After this i went from my incorrect 27:11 min. remaining on the camera to the full 60. Still records perfectly and the software is still on it and works correctly. Hope it helps some of you out there =)
