When you format the disk before recording, make sure you format in VIDEO MODE. Once you have recorded, finalize disk. After you place the disk into your computer, open up the folder of the disk. You should see your clips with the extension .VOB;
right click to copy the clip to your desktop. Right-click on the copied file and rename the VOB extension to MPEG. It will warn you that the file might become unusable, but it works everytime. VOB files are Mpeg files. Now you can import into any editing software. Goodluck.

Well I have a flip video camera with 27 videos i recorded but when I plug it into my pc there is no dcim folder??

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!

Playback problems - timer stays at zero

Firewire transfer problem with PV-GS320. HAd bought the PV-GS90 and ran into significant transfer issues importing to Mac (iMovie and Fincal Cut Express HD both had problems). Upgraded to GS320 as Macworld rated it highly. Same problems: video plays back perfectly with no computer connection. once connected, video and audio stutter, go out of sync, sometimes just stop and/or crash the program.

I've used a borrowed Canon GL with this Mac before with no issues, so I suspect the camera. Have tried reset button, trashing preferences, restarts, the works. still can't get clean video to transfer from a brand new camera. Any Ideas?

Deleted videos off of computer and time remaining when empty is not 30 min

Hey all, I had the same problem after deleting video on windows explorer. I couldn't figure it out untill I plugged camera into computer and opened files using windows media player. The video I had deleted came up in the playlist. I went to 'open from location' (right click while on the video tag line) And it tookme to a folder named 100video. There was the video I had deleted. So I deleted it from there while still hooked up and now my camera reads 60minutes again. Try it. Good luck
