File failed message

I just bought this camcorder from Amazon. "File failed" appears within seconds when trying to record. Then the camera acts like it has locked up. The mode button is not functional after I try to record. I have to take the battery out so the camera will reset. Any ideas about what may be causing this?

    I found that I had a bad memory card, although it was new. I changed the card and the camera works great.

    "File Failed" message after approximantly 40-60secs of recording. This ONLY happens when I am recording onto a memory card. It has not happened when I was recording to internal memory. I suspect it is a bad memory card. Brand:Dane-Elec

I found that I had a bad, although brand new, memory card. I changed the card and the camera works perfectly.

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..

Error code 2881


Hi,


Found error in image file, Error Occurred, error 0901, 572, 2881
The camera says found error in image file, repair data now. When you press yes it says "Error occurred. Please replace disc." or use ac adapter/charger, turn off power. It won't let you go to Disc Navigation to finalize it. While recording video on DVD-R media the battery power may have failed and camera shut off. When turned on the message shown on the lcd is Found error in image file, Error Occurred, error 0901.

Cannot copy files Parameter Incorrect


most likely the issue is that your trying to copy files over 4gb to fat32 disks, and this causes the parameter incorrect -issue. Try formatting the drive your copying to ntfs, this can handle +4gb files.

hmm.. this is a hard one. Well, you may have the SD car on Lock, but if that's not the problem, you either used up the memory, or need to upgrade the firmware Sorry I can't answer in great detail. I'll try to find some more information ASAP. Sincerely: (youtube user) animation508

Broken video management file/ recording failure


Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.

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 =)
