You have to remove your video files from your camcorder by attaching it to your PC USB connection. All your video files are still on your hard drive even though you deleted them from the display screen. I had the same problem and now I'm good to go.
Connect your camcoder to your PC, access the Drive, find the folder and delete the files.

Camcorder keeps reading internal memory full and just put new memory stick in camcorder how do I get out of internal memory


Your Sony camcorder has internal hard-disk and records by default to this media. If this is full, you need to offload the recordings and free up some space on the disk. But to select the memory card you can do the following:

Selecting the recording media for movies:
Touch (MENU) [Show others] [MEDIA SETTINGS] (under
[MANAGE MEDIA] category) [MOVIE MEDIA SET].
The [MOVIE MEDIA SET] screen appears.

Touch the desired recording media.

Touch [YES] .OK
The recording medium is now changed.

For still images:
Selecting the recording media for photos
Touch (MENU) [Show others] [MEDIA SETTINGS] (under
[MANAGE MEDIA] category) [PHOTO MEDIA SET].
The [PHOTO MEDIA SET] screen appears.

Touch the desired recording media.

Touch [YES] .OK
The recording medium is changed.
Hope this helps, if more help needed, reply back.

I have the Everio 30BG and have downloaded all the files onto my computer, however there is a message showing 'insufficient space' when I try to record, and yet there are not files. HELP>


Are you saving to the micro SD card or to the HDD? You need to go into your menu options to ensure that you are saving to the HDD automatically. Sometimes I used to save to the SD for pics and the HDD for video (set up in the menu). Maybe you are deleting the HDD files but automatically recording to the full SD card?! Check

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.

Memory card space


usually it will go back and show the time once you actually start recording. If that is not the case then you should format the storage folder on the device to ensure it was properly deleted.


Thanks,

Im getting a Hard Disk error


ill try to be a little clearer
Disk is not full, i never wait till theend to unload my videos. I try to derfagment it every time I unload my videos.
This problem happened to me twice, luckly was able to recover.
I plug the camera to the USB port, computer sees it. I start copying files to my comp using the camera software, than everything freezes. I unplug the camera switch to the recording mode and it showes me "disk full error" , "hard disk error". At that time the computer stops seeing the camera.
I spend good half hour messing with it, turning it on and off and playing with buttons. After a while I get it to work and my recordings show up again.
I suspect a conflict with the software or possibly hard disk is over heating.
So far I was able to live with this problem.
Cheers
