if it is from a memory card, you can use a program like sandisk rescuePro deluxe or many types of drive or card recovery software to find and pull off files. if you have formatted over the card by accident the most important thing is not to record on it at all. otherwise you will record over the formatted material.
It happens to me very often that I forgot to press the "record" botton while I looked at the screen and did some adjusting thinking that I had recorded the wonderful moments. If the memory card is the only storage device and if one video actually shows up there you might have done the same thing I did very often. One of my recorders always give me that bonus one screen shot for each video file.
Try formatting the card. There should be somewhere in the menu of your camera an option to format the card - this is different than erasing everything, it's like a total wipe of all information on the card. Give it a shot, might help!
The camera is probably configured to record to harddisk now. Select your Pro Duo memorystick as the record media thru the menu's (select the memory stick icon), and you'll be able to see the stick content.
CHoose the menu or Dial the menu to someking MOVIE ICON usually like a box with 2 circle above it (represent the movie recorder icon). Then press the shutter to record and press it again to stop. Just make sure your camera's memory (either internal or external) is enough. For other setting like resolution and frame per second (FPS) you may change it on the Menu. The bigger number on FPS meaning the video become more smooth but it take a lot of memory.
I'm sorry to inform you but after researching your camera only records for 20 seconds. It has nothing to do with your card. Only 20 second blocks of time.
Movie mode - The total amount of recording time available is shown by the green "00:20"
in the lower right hand corner. This is SHQ 640x480 resolution at 30fps, the maximum recording
time is 20 seconds. In the lower quality 640x480 @ 15fps or 320x240 size, the recording time is
limited only by space on your xD card. The shaking hand icon indicates that we have the image
stabilizer turned on.
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..
