My flip camera says its empty but when I try to record it says its full??

Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.

If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.

From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC (you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from the card while it's in the camera.

Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full functionality of your memory card.

I am trying to download video from my Sony DCR hc22e camcorder to my Medion computor that only has USB ports (no Firewire Connection ports). Sony have suggested a firewire USB adaptor but Maplins and a...

The Sony DCR-HC20 Mini-DV is a 2004 model and has both USB and Firewire connectivity. You only need the USB since your computer has USB. The original camcorder was supplied with a proper USB cable having a standard computer connector at one end and a mini usb connector at the camcorder end.

You have to install software/drivers on the computer for your operating system (typically supplied by Sony on a CD with the camcorder) and connect the camcorder to the computer with the USB cable.

You also need DirectX9.0b installed on the computer which should already be there with Windows XP, Vista etc.

See the manual here:

I want to offload video from the cpu to the gpu. Is it possivle with this card?

That card is running the NVIDIA GeForce MX4000 graphics engine. Yes, it will offload some of the stress of the CPU onto its on board GPU. It will definitely help graphics performance.

This is a very entry level card, don't expect night and day differences to be noticed. Consider the JATON Video-558PCI-DLP GeForce 8400 GS 512MD 64-bit for a bit more power. Find it here

You may need a better sound card. While you're at it, if you update your display card, you'll be offloading actual memory while video card's own memory picks up the slacker.

No sound with video

1. Make sure your comera doesn't have the MUTE function selected.
2. Check the output volume on the camera.
3. If you've offloaded the video, and there's not audio with it, reset your camera to the default seeting (check in your manual) and you should gain your audio back.

My comp. quit reconizing my digital camera,sony cyber shot DSC-S90 HELP

have you done any updates before you began having the problem? you might have to reload whatever drivers the camera came with... which computer and what operating system? have you tried a different port? otherwise the easiest workaround is to get a memory card for it and offload with a card reader.
