Flip video instruction manual


Had the same problem. After trying everything, this worked:
From a command prompt, list directories. You might see one called ".Trashes\501" -- this is the directory where I found all the videos hiding that we tried every trick in the book to delete. If you see video files in this directory, simply delete them using the command prompt. Then exit the command line interface and check your camera. You should have a full 60 minutes of recording time restored.
Hope this works for you!

When I press the power button on my ultra hd 2nd generation camcorder, the screen lights up with the flip logo and verbage that says hold the record button for setup. It also makes the correct sound for...


Will the camcorder let you go ahead and complete "SETUP"?? if so, go ahead and redo the setup maybe some glich and maybe doing setup again may get the camera going again? hope so!! I have one also and knock on wood, no problems so far. it may be worth a try:


when camcorder turns on: when Flip Video Logo comes up press and hold RECORD button, to enter setup mode use the + and - to adjust current setting and the left and right arrows to select other settings

good luck!

After removing the movies from my flip video camcorder it says camcorder empty, but the time left says 00:00. If I try to record it says camcorder full.


Your videos may still be in the Recycle Bin/Trash. Try plugging the device back in to your computer, then check the Recycle Bin to see if the movies are there. If they are, delete them from the Recycle Bin (or empty the bin completely) and they will be permanently removed from the device.

When we try to record video it says camcorder full and when we view videos it says camcorder empty

Lost record time due to corrupted video files


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!!!!!

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.
PS instead of 5 nines it's 6 nines.

Flip video problem


I have had this exact problem. The Flip Camera read "empty" however if I tried to record something by pressing the red button, the camera read "full." I started having this problem and kept on seeing fewer and fewer minutes available to record. Today, I was trying to shoot and then uploaded three videos. I could use the camera no more. So, I did as you suggested...plug the camera in to my Mac and then emptied the trashcan. It WORKED!! I got all sixt minutes back.

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 =)
