Lost record time due to corrupted video files

It twice happened to me that a recorded video has not been visible in FlipShare. The camera told "Camcorder empty", however, showed a remaining record time decreased by about the amount of the recorded video. The DCIM/100VIDEO folder was empty. Now I just have about six minutes remaining (from originally 60). The Windows file explorer tells me that on the camcorder there are just about 450 MB free (from totally 4 GB), however no video files or anything else consuming all that space are visible anywhere. The DCIM/100VIDEO folder is shown sized 0 Bytes (?). I recorded one more video to try the Flip Support's solution with deleting the file, deleting the trash can and switching the camcorder on/off 8 times, but it did not work.I guess that there are several corrupted video files in the camcorder memory which are not accessible/visible any more and which I can't get rid of. Is there any way to reset, re-initialize, restore (or whatever) the camcorder memory ?

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!!!!!

When I'm recording video using my Olympus xz-1, i keep encountering "card error". Often, it happen after recording for > 2 min. is this my memory card problem or the camera problem.


Hello,
There is actually a very very big chance that it was the memory card. Your camera might have been having troubles writing data to the memory storage device such as the memcard itself due to corrupted files in it. Try to format the memory card to remove any sort of glitches, if it does the same, try a different memory card to see if it will do the same exact error.

Push record says its full, push trash says its empty


Download all the video using flipshare, and save all and delete what is left on the camera.

If you want to erase all the video, press the trash icon, and it will say yes/no/all. Select ALL by pressing the right arrow and then press play. THIS DELETES ALL VIDEO make sure it is saved.

Can you recover deleted files from the Olympus Recorder VN-4100PC? also, one of my files is unable to play. any way of recovering it?


YES, it is definitely possible to recover such kind of files deleted from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to a PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. I hope this will help. Best regards!

Flip Ultra HD and Mac Os X -- version 10.5 Problems installing FlipShare Help! When I try to install Flip for Mac, it freezes in mid-installation, and never closes. It does install a Flipshare...


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.

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.

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.

To regain record time we are told to re-format the flip video ult


I had the same problem so I tried the thing on the website and it didn't work so I looked it up on Youtube and someone figured out how to do it. I tried it and I got all 60 minutes back. You should try this, it probably works.

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.

File failed message


The same thing happens to me when I try to record thru the "A/V in jack". It appears (my first thought) that the camera is trying to record to the internal drive and it runs out of memory really quick. But then, when I play it back, (the small 15 seconds or so) the audio and video are not sync'd. Most of the time at least. Very inconsistent. It also locked up and froze for me too. I had to remove the battery to reset it. Once or twice it recorded normal, (once when I reset the default settings and another time just out of the blue) - I thought I had it solved but it went back to "File Failed" after about 17-20 seconds of recording on the next record session.

I have the thing packed up ready to take back, but am looking for a solution so I can keep it..

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 =)
