Question about Video Cameras

Open Question

Can anyone get me the software files that go the flip camera?

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.

SOURCE: Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off

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!!

Good Luck!

Camcorder full but all videos were deleted


connect camcorder to computer and check whether it shows as a drive letter in Computer. If not, you need to take out the memory card and then connect it to computer with a card reader, you can then download this data recovery program, recommended asoftech data recovery that helped me before.

Transferred video files from my Flip onto my computer and selected to have the Flip files deleted after tranferring. The files did not transfer, but they were deleted from the Flip. Is there a way to...


You have chance to get back some or all of those lost videos from your Flip Camcorder if you take care.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos with the memory card or hard disk (on your camcorder) that you want to recover videos from. Take the memory card or disk out of your cam and put it in a safe place. Because if you take any more videos or save any data to your memory card or hard disk, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of video recovery.

Then Connect the card or disk to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your videos with Wondershare Recovery Software (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link:

Video Photo Recovery (if you are running Windows OS)
Mac Data Recovery (from MacUpdate site)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your camcoder(card or disk) until you can recover your videos safely!

Flip share video application unexpectedly quits


Solved - I had the same problem.

The original "Flip Video For PC" software that came preinstalled on my Flip worked fine. But after being nagged to "upgrade" to FlipShare, I experienced the same crash problem mentioned here. Even worse, the FlipShare installation nuked the original program files from the Flip!

In my case, I think my computer's processor did not meet the minimum system requirements of the newer FlipShare software. The original "Flip Video For PC" software requires a 2Ghz P4 or higher; the FlipShare software says it requires a dual-core 4Ghz or higher. So when the FlipShare software tries to load the ippvideodecoder.ax module on an under-powered processor, it just crashes. Bad design.

I bet that most of the people posting this same problem here have processors that are "borderline".

Anyway, here's how to get the original Flip Video software back and re-install it on your computer:

Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility if you screw up your Flip or lose your videos. I can only tell you this method worked for me.

1) Use Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs to uninstall FlipShare and 3vix.

2) Download "Flip Video For PC" v3.7 from here:
http://www.theflip.com/app/prius/37/update/

3) Follow the written instructions here for formatting your Flip and reinstalling the software:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYc8N3dmxhU

Important: this guy tells you how to back up any existing videos on your Flip BEFORE you format it.

After formatting, I had some initial trouble with the installation not finding my (empty) Flip. Here's a workaround: the installation creates a folder called "FlipVideo Updater Support Files", and within that a subfolder called "files_to_install". Copy the entire contents of that subfolder to the root of your Flip. Re-run the installation and it should now be recognized.

4) Bonus: once you've got the old software reinstalled and working, you may want to disable the annoying "Upgrade To FlipShare" nag screen that bugs you every time you run the software. Simply browse your Flip and delete the following file:

[drive letter]\System\VIEWER\PD\checkForUpdate.txt

No more nag screen!

I hope this info is helpful to those who experienced the same problem. Flip tech support people are absolutely clueless.

best,
JohnB

FLIP ULTRA FILES DELETED, CAN THEY BE RESTORED


I have had success with this flip camera recovery software... Download the program
Video Recovery Software

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Next" and wait for it to do it's magic.
