Download all the video using flipshare, and save all and delete what is left on the camera.

If you want to erase all the video, press the trash icon, and it will say yes/no/all. Select ALL by pressing the right arrow and then press play. THIS DELETES ALL VIDEO make sure it is saved.

    If you are OK with doing a complete erase and reset of the flip:

    Please follow these steps to format your camcorder on your PC:

    Then, after quite a search, I found the following information. You need to reformat the camera and reinstall the software.

    1. Connect your camcorder to your computer
    2. Close any window that pops up asking what you would like to do
    3. Open My Computer.
    4. Right click on the Flip Video icon.
    5. Click on Format.
    6. Under File System, open the drop down list and choose FAT.
    7. Click Start and then click OK.

    After this is done, please go to the following link to re-install the updated software: http://support.theflip.com/en-us/flipsha...

Flip video instruction manual


Had the same problem. After trying everything, this worked:
From a command prompt, list directories. You might see one called ".Trashes\501" -- this is the directory where I found all the videos hiding that we tried every trick in the book to delete. If you see video files in this directory, simply delete them using the command prompt. Then exit the command line interface and check your camera. You should have a full 60 minutes of recording time restored.
Hope this works for you!

My discovery kids digital camera says that the memory is full even though we have deleted all the videos and pictures. When I push the arrow, it says "no file". What is wrong with the memory?


Had the same problem when I deleted the photos on the computer. We have a MAC. I dragged all photos to the trash, so the DCIM folder was empty, but it still said Memory Full, even though there were "no files". Finally figured it out, had to plug the camera back in, and EMPTY my trash (permanently delete the items). Now it works again! Hope this works for you!

How do you empty trash my mail box is full


Log into your yahoo account. Look to the left of the screen and you will see trash. Right next to it is empty. Click this to empty trash. You may need to go through al of your email and do a little housecleaning as well. If you tend to get large attachments or pictures, then this is why it is full. Be sure and save attachments, photos, documents, etc. before deleting any email as you cannot get these back once deleted from trash.

Sony ICD-UX70/UX80 digital recorder...memory full problem


I solved the problem by connecting my Sony IC Recorder to the USB port on my McBook Pro computer and then emptying the trash can on the Mac computer. Visually (flashing red indicator light) and audibly (the recorder's sound that indicates something being erased), it was clear that mp3 files were finally, really being erased on the Sony recorder even though the recorder's own screen display had previously shown only empty folders and no files. Dragging files to the trash can doesn't really erase them unless you also empty the trash. All dragging to the trash can does is somehow mark the files in a way that, unfortunately, makes them invisible to Sony's file detection system.

Lost storage capacity


I had the same exact problem... then someone told me the fix... you have to "empty trash" on your computer (when the camcorder is plugged into your USB) - this will "empty" the trash on your computer, but also empty on your flip too...

I guess what happens when you delete all files from the "100 Video" file is that your camcorder moves all files into its own "trash" (on the device) - so the camera "shows" that there are no videos, but in reality, they are still on the flash memory on the device..

hope this makes sense and works for you.

Message trash empty try to record and get camera full


someone else posted on another feed, and it worked SO well I had to restate it here.
Empty the trash on your mac. I had the same problem, "Camera is full" but in actuality "Camera was empty". This guy said to plug the camera into the computer (macs in our cases) and empty the trash folder on your computer.
Fixed my problem completely and I didn't have to do anything crazy! Now next time it happens I'll know what to do, hope it helps you too! :)

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.

SD card full in spite of all files deleted - what do do?


OK, so if you want to delete the photos off your s.d. card, Simply open the 'terminal' application located in the utilities folder.
Then enter this into the box:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder

That will then make the .Trashes folder of the sd card show up!
Open it, go through the '501' folder, and there you go! Delete everything!

This happens because the card has it's own hidden trash.

Oh, and if you want to hide all the hidden files and folders again, simply open terminal, and enter THIS text:


defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
killall Finder

Cheers,

Tristan
