Re: HOW TO GET OUR VIDEOS FROM THE CAMERA ON TO THE PC
When you format the disk before recording, make sure you format in VIDEO MODE. Once you have recorded, finalize disk. After you place the disk into your computer, open up the folder of the disk. You should see your clips with the extension .VOB;
right click to copy the clip to your desktop. Right-click on the copied file and rename the VOB extension to MPEG. It will warn you that the file might become unusable, but it works everytime. VOB files are Mpeg files. Now you can import into any editing software. Goodluck.

I feel your pain! I too had valuable videos on my FlipCam and it was no longer being recognized by my Windows 7 desktop, Win XP laptop, or MacBook Pro. I tried everything including hard resets, replacing drivers on my computers, all without success.
However, I finally figured this out! Here's what you do:
STEP 1: Remove the batteries from the FlipCam (If it's the same HD model as mine, there's a sliding unlock switch on the bottom near the tripod mount.. Then the front shell slides down.)
STEP 2: Plug the USB plug attached to the camera into your computer's USB port. Voila! The FLIPVIDEO device now appears and you can go into the DCIM\100VIDEO directory to download your videos. Or, if you have FlipShare installed, this should launch as well.
Two more points:
1. You may need to delete the bad USB Mass Storage Device from (PC) Control Panel/System/Drivers/USB Controllers. Then plug in your batteryless FlipCam.
2. When you put the battery back in, odds are you won't see the FlipCam any more. However, now that you know the solution, just remove the battery to extract your videos and then put the battery back in.
Hello....This will be short and sweet....Check to see if the battery is charged and installed properly...I had this troblem with My FujiFilm camera...In my camera...you can install the battery backwards and it will not work...so check the battery charge and installation first....Let me know what happens......I hope this was helpful......PEACE......
That player is only for playing flash videos in the browser. If you want to play videos from your pc then you will need a media player that is capable of that. Install and use VLC
The possibilities to consider for this kind of problem are quite a number
the bateries you are using might be defective, so you can get a new set of bateries with the voltage and wattage or charge the old one appropriately..
the contact for the battery could be the problem if there is rust in it. this would need cleaning..
the power switch of the camera might also be faulty, this would require you to take the camera to a repairer.. if you got warranty on it you can consider using it or look for a good engineer around you to fix it..
Turn the camera off and connect the usb cable between the camera and the pc. Turn the camera on. Go to My Computer on your pc. Do you see the camera as one of the drives in the list? If not, do this:
Turn the camera off and disconnect it from the pc, and turn it back on.
While in live view, hit the menu/ok button.
Scroll to the right to the the icon with the wrench (set up menu).
Scroll down to usb configuration and press the menu/ok button.
Highlight Disk Drive, then press the menu/ok button.
Turn the camera back off, and reconnect it to the pc.
Turn the camera back on.
You should now see it as a drive. Open the folder and find a video you recorded and try to play it.
Let me know if this works for you. You can leave a comment and we'll get it worked out. If it does work, feel free to rate this solution a fixya.
videos have a different file extension than photos and some time windows doesn't recognize it-use software from manuf or tell me what brand camera-try a generic memory card reader and bypass the camera can also work
I've never had this problem, but I do not use the Canon software. When you plug your camera in to the USB port, try going to the videos through Windows Explorer. If you're not sure what I mean, here's how:
1. Plug your camera in 2. Go to "My Computer"
From there you should see your camera in the list. Double click it and find your video file. Copy and paste it to your desired location, and then try to open it.
I've recorded a few videos, and have never had this problem. If that doesn't work, let me know and I'll figure out something else.
