Question about Video Cameras
I followed a forum post that explained how to reformat the disk to solve a storage problem, EXCEPT, I didn't check the link for the re-install software files until after I did the other steps. The link on the post is now dead due to Cisco not supporting the software anymore. (Model Flip UltraHD U2120-black/silver) So I'm looking for anyone willing to copy the files that are actually held ON your flip camera as now all I have is basically a useless USB stick in the shape of a Flip. Thanks to anyone who can liaise with me and share these files, possibly by dropbox. It's much appreciated.

SOURCE: 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.

Connect your flip video camcorder to your computer via the usb arm. you will find your video files in FLIPVIDEO(F:)->DCIM folder. Just copy your videos to your computer.

I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!
