Flip Mino HD Won't Work After USB Connect

On all of my computers (some with Vista, some with MS Windows XP) I cannot get my relatively new Flip Mino HD to work anymore. I receive an error message after the USB connects, "FlipShare has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

SOURCE: FlipShare software won't install

I had the same problem when plugging my Flip into the USB port. Kept saying a file was corrupted. I went to the Pure Digital Technologies website and downloaded the upgrade/program directly and it installed fine. You might try that if you already haven't.

SOURCE: Flip Ultra HD and Mac Os X -- version 10.5

I had the same issue with my new ultra hd and my 2008 imac. Basically, I just downloaded flipshare from pure digital's website and all is good. Another problem I have run into is that when I first plug the camera in, it asks if I want to update the cameras software, when I click 'yes', it gives the error, "unable to update camera software."
Last but least, Imovie 08 gives an error when I try to import the movies. No biggie, I just double click on the "dcim" folder in the flip video folder of the camera and I can drag the videos to my desktop, then into Imovie.
So far, not the seamless experience I was expecting, as this unit is supposed to be 100% compatible with mac's.

SOURCE: I accidently deleted all of the videos on my Flip HD Mino while trying to save to my PC. Can they be recovered and how? Thanks

You have chance. Do it as follows.
---------------------------------------------------------

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!

Switched a vista hd to a xp hd and windows will not open


You can't do that, it just won't work. A hard drive with XP installed on it will be unrecognizable to a PC with vista already installed on it. You can either backup your XP drive by putting it into a compatible XP computer. Or you can buy on of these, which are handy. This let's you get the data to your new PC thru a USB connection.

My flip mino HD has been charging for 3 hours and will not turn on. I've tried resetting the battery and it still won't turn on


Is it plugged in directly or with a USB extension cable? Some cheaper cables are not sufficient to charge it.

The flip mino hd usb won't plug into most of my usb ports (And yes, I know the difference between a firewire and usb). I have tried it on four different computers with a total of 10 usb ports. it worked...


My flip mino hd USB also will not plug into my MacBook Pro.  I've tried it on 3 different machines and it will only fit into one port, and not at all easy into that port.  When I look at the USB connector on the device, there appears to be slight raised plastic ridged on the outside ends of the connector.

Flip Mino HD battery will not recharge


I panicked when I saw all these posts but the reset did work for me. Others say it doesn't but this first time at least, it did the trick. I stuck the end of a paper clip in the little hole in where the tripod mount is (it's further recessed than the mount itself). It doesn't seem like it fits, but it does. The minoHD was off, since by this time it wouldn't turn on. When I tried to turn it on again, it finally came on with the battery in the red zone. I recharged and it appears to be fine.
