Now it is stuck in docking mode, ive tried leaving the batteries out and takeing the memory card out. Ive also tried plugging it back into the computer and safely removing. Is there any other way of resetting it or fixing it?

Re: Stuck in docking mode
There may be a small reset-button hidden inside a small hole somewhere that you might push with a paperclip or something. Also make sure the connection plug on your camera isn't damaged. If some pins are shorted out it might fool the camera to believe it's still connected to the computer.

I have had a similar problem with a computer, where usb ports would
sometimes work fine, then suddenly become erratic. It wasn't until I
replaced the computer, new computer, new operating system, new software,
and while transfering files over the same thing started happening again
- odd! It turned out to be a white sd / camera card reader which was plugged into a usb port, unplugged it and all was normal again. I would not have guessed a card reader could have upset all the usb ports, but it sure did! Or, in your case, if it is just one port, perhaps it is not connected to the motherboard.
The error indicates that the computer is not getting an understandable signal from the camera (or dock if you are using one). The solution will be in discovering why the signal isn't getting through, or deciding that the camera or dock is defective.
Verify that the camera battery is charged. Then turn all devices (computer, dock and camera) off. Remove every cable and wire between computer and camera. Unplug power to the dock.
Examine each connection carefully. Look for dirt, bent pins, loose connections, or anything "strange". Look at the bottom of camera too, where it sits on the dock.
Reconnect the wires and cables, power everything up and see if any improvement.
If no improvement and you have WinXP or Vista, Do a System Restore back to a date when the camera connection was working. Restart and check for improvement.
If no improvement, check computer update history. Have any Microsoft updates been applied since the last time the camera connection worked? If so back them off and check for improvement.
If no improvement or no MS updates, decide that the camera or dock are defective and return them. Unfortunately, electronics sometimes fail. If you like the camera, give a replacement a chance.
Take the memory card out of the camera and copy the pics through a card reader.
Finally I solved it!!!! Situation: My Computer (MAC And PC) wasn't recognizing the FLIP ULTRA HD, because it has a corrupted file, but couldn't format because there was no communication between camera and computer
Try cleaning your computer for spyware and viruses. Also try cleaning your registry out using a utility. Do your USB ports on the computer work with any other devices? Try using different USB ports and make sure theres no faults in you device list with the USB drivers. Let me know more info. What OS are you using. By unplugging it without safely removing is most dangerous to Flash memory but it's definitely possible to damage a hard drive by doing so. You might have corrupted your drive. Hope this helps.
pl state which pc u hav, its motherboard, the operating system and what anti virus is used?
its quite possible tat ur hardware is malfunctioned, possibly teh
operatin system (windows XP / vista / ME / 98) is gone currupt, or
simply u can unhook the USB of the printer before restartin it, and
hook it again only after restartin it.
Make sure you are connecting directly to the computer's USB port, not through a hub. Try disconnecting other USB devices before plugging in the camera. Check the manufacturer's website for updaded drivers: if all else fails, a reinstall of the camera's drivers may be in order.
Possible faulty connection between docking station and camera.
Depending on age of the camera- send it back for replacement from the seller or contact Casio.
Does this model have a removable memory card?
If so invest in a card reader - very cheap and more reliable than docking stations.
