Question about Video Cameras
I feel your pain! I too had valuable videos on my FlipCam and it was no longer being recognized by my Windows 7 desktop, Win XP laptop, or MacBook Pro. I tried everything including hard resets, replacing drivers on my computers, all without success.
However, I finally figured this out! Here's what you do:
STEP 1: Remove the batteries from the FlipCam (If it's the same HD model as mine, there's a sliding unlock switch on the bottom near the tripod mount.. Then the front shell slides down.)
STEP 2: Plug the USB plug attached to the camera into your computer's USB port. Voila! The FLIPVIDEO device now appears and you can go into the DCIM\100VIDEO directory to download your videos. Or, if you have FlipShare installed, this should launch as well.
Two more points:
1. You may need to delete the bad USB Mass Storage Device from (PC) Control Panel/System/Drivers/USB Controllers. Then plug in your batteryless FlipCam.
2. When you put the battery back in, odds are you won't see the FlipCam any more. However, now that you know the solution, just remove the battery to extract your videos and then put the battery back in.
Hop this helps you like it did me!

SOURCE: my video tape transfer to pc
download the usb driver "usbdriven.exe" and then download a program like movavi video suite or ulead video studio (movavi is better), thats all you need to download videos to your pc, hope it helps!

What you guys need to do is empty the trash can on your mac before you eject the camera if you are deleting videos from your computer.

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 =)

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.
