Question about Pure Digital Flip Video Camcorder
I'm supposed to have 30 minutes of video recording when my video camera is empty. However, after deleting all of the videos the camcorder says that I have only 20 minutes and 10 seconds of video left. I erased everything using my PC. Any suggestions on how to get it back to 30 minutes of available recording time? Thanks.
What you guys need to do is empty the trash can on your mac before you eject the camera if you are deleting videos from your computer.

For Windows users who weren't successful with the "Empty Trash" solution and don't want to re-format the Flip memory, this is how I solved the problem of lost record time after two incidents of video file corruption (Flip Mino HD connected to PC with Windows XP):
I made a Windows standard disk check (no special tool) after which Windows had created a hidden folder named"FOUND.000" which contained a file with all the lost clusters of the corrupted videos (to see this folder you have to change your file explorer options to see all files/folders including protected system files). The file had just the size which I had been missing. I deleted the "FOUND.000" folder on the camcorder and now the it shows the full 60 minutes record time again.

Maybe you can try some recovery software to see if the original videos can be recovered properly. Install this one Wondershare Photo Recovery (recover videos and audio files too) on your computer. Then start to scan your video camcorder and see if your files can be got back. Get the program from:
For Windows Version
For Mac version
Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your camcoder(card or disk) until you can recover your files safely! Good luck!
