Even though I deleted all of the pictures, then took five or six, the message reads memory full. What's up?

Do you have an SD memory card inserted? Your camera only has a 32MB internal memory, which could easily fill up after taking 5 or 6 shots depending on what setting you have it on.

FlipVideo software - FlipShare

I’ve had my Flip Video Pure Digital since the summer of 2007. The only problem I’ve ever had with it was the software, both the original as well as the upgrades. The current upgrade crashed within the first two minutes every time I opened it. I was never able to process a single video with it. Like you, I became extremely frustrated and sent an email to customer service. Expecting at least a 24 hour delay in response, I started combing the Internet looking for other options. In short, on the first day I received three very pleasant and timely responses from Flip Video’s support staff, but nothing worked; they finally offered to call me on the phone. By then, however, I had come up with a solution that works great for me. I use Win Vista, so don’t know how this would work on other os’s. (1) Format your camera (save all videos on it before formatting because EVERYTHING disappears from the drive). (2) Shoot your video. (3) Re-connect your camera to your computer. (4) A pop up message asks you if you want to import the videos; click yes. After importing my videos, I close that program and open up my solvergmm (avi trimmer freeware: and cut the front and back edges of the video. I can then save the video to the directory of my choice or watch it from that program. It’s extremely simple and gives me pretty much everything that the FlipShare software aspired to give me. Also, when I delete the videos from the camera I get back my complete 60 minutes instead of the time decay one gets with Flip Video’s software. Hope this helps others – it made my day!

Error 27.2 showing when trying to upgrade the software

I finally figured this out. The problem is that the software files on the camera are locked. To see this, open a Finder window and view the contents of the FlipVideo device. Click "Get Info" on most any of the files. Note that the "Locked" checkbox is checked.

1) You can go through all the files and Unlock them. It is hard to get all of them.
2) Create a folder "old" on the camera. Move all of the files (except DCIM and Info.bin) to the "old" folder (in case Step 4 fails). You may have to unlock them to move them.
3) Go to /Applications and right-click on FlipShare. Choose "Show Package Contents". Go to Resources/Upgrade.
4) Copy all the contents of the Upgrade folder to the Camera. That's what the upgrade program was trying to do.

After that, try the camera to make sure it works. After you are sure, you can delete the "old" folder.

Happy videos!

Frame only flickers

Try pulling the battery for five minutes. if it is plugged in a wall socket, pull the plug for five minutes. once the five minutes are up, power the unit up again and, test the display. if it continues to flicker, you will need to delete all loaded pictures and, reload them at this point. this could be a overloaded memory module.

If the reload doesn't work, this will confirm a display board chip issue. you will then need ot send this device in for the repair.

Transferring Video to Computer Major Problem

The Flip Video Camcorder is a portable, easy-to-use solution for creating and sharing high-quality home movies. Flip Video is the ideal choice for capturing everyday moments that happen anywhere, and sharing them with family and friends everywhere.

Flip video camcorder isn’t without its drawback. Although you might find the recorded mp4 video files compatible with iMovie and QuickTime on Mac, they just fail you every time when you directly import them to iPod or iPhone. Flip video converter for Mac is able to compress flip video to different file sizes with different resolution, frame rate and bit rate to be exactly compatible with iPod, iPhone, Blackberry, etc.

Besides Youtube and Mysapce, Flip video converter for Mac provides potential Podcast production assistance to let you post up your own video to iTunes. with the software, you can rip audio either from Flip Ultral video or Fip Mino video and convert to mp3, ogg, aac audio format, you can also convert flip video to flv, asf, 3gp, mpeg-4, mov, m4v, mpg, avi, wmv for your specific project

Flip video camcorder says camcorder full and then camcorder empty

I found the solution!
Just put the Flip camera back into any computer on which you deleted files — then, with the Flip camera still attached, empty your trash bin.
All of the time comes right back. The only catch is if you have deleted files on many different computers. At some point, you will have to go back to those computers, insert the Flip, empty the trash and then you'll get your minutes back.
It's awesome. I am back in love with the Flip.

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.
