You probably do not have the drivers installed. Installing the software I linked to above could also install the latest drivers. Did you try doing what I told you above?

Hi Sotos, thanks, yes I downloaded from your link after uninstalling but I keep getting an error message. After a few attempts of uninstalling and re-downloading Microsoft came in asking me some trouble-shooting questions including whether this program worked on previous window settings and after answering all that and pressing various commands and requests I still get the same error message.

The only other thing I can think of is that my Olympus program for downloading photos from my camera keeps starting up when I plug in the Flip to the USB port and I wonder if that's interfering now.

Connect your "flip camera" and go into your "file explorer" or "file manager" or "folder explorer", or whatever the hell Windows 10 calls it.

Now look at this picture...

flip.PNG


Click on that damn thing... and now keep clicking into the folders of this "Flip USB Device" until you see a list of all your videos.

Once you have seen them click on the first video of the list ONCE and then press [SHIFT + END] to highlight the LOT.

R-click on the highlighted files and select COPY from the R-Click menu that will appear.

Now go to your DESKTOP and R-click PASTE...

Voila! They should now be on your desktop.

I can still access my old Flip videos that I had downloaded before - but I cannot access the ones I took yesterday!


It's a driver problem, just as Sotos said. I had the same problem with my usb drive. What you need to do is re install Windows 7, but make sure you back up all your files on a separate drive first. :wink:

If the olympus camera software is triggering it shows the flip is being recognised at least in part. Have you followed through on the olymus software to see if that will allow a down load of the videos? If not then What you msy need to do is to go in settings, default programs and reset the default progs so the Olympus program does not start automatically when you plug a cam in and then see what happens when you plug the flip in. .

If you need driver software, which several think may be the issue try here

No guarantees it will work.

The file names of those files seem suspicious. You can see them when you mouse over the Download buttons.

The laptop (or windows) does recognise the 'Flip' when I insert it into the USB port - it bleeps, little red lights come on, and also when you try to 'safely eject hardware' it has the Flip's name there to click onto.

It also lets me access the files to download for 'fileshare' - and I can do that by Get Real's method too through File Explorer. So then the Flip icon comes onto my desktop as though it's all nicely there. But when I try to double click on it to download my videos off the Flip that's when the problem starts.

So, once the icon (fileshare) is downloaded, either from the Flip videocamcorder itself or Sotos' download website - I always get the error message '3 ivx video decoder' and it tells me to 'repair' the fault - which then, my laptop (me?) can't do.

If your device is VISIBLE in the file manager then you should be able to click onto its folders and view their contents to see if your video files are there in which case drivers are irrelevant.

Your camera has some sort of memory card inside and it should appear as a small USB “hard disk” in your file manager not unlike a USB stick. You don’t even need any drivers to access a memory card via USB provided the device is receiving power from a power source.

Therefore, if you’re 100% sure that files *cannot* be directly copied from this device via the file manager, then I would scan the device’s memory card for errors and/or attempt data recovery…

First try the built-in Windows disk checking tool:

http://www.thewindowsclub.com/disk-erro ... -windows-8

…and upon that failing move onto 3rd party:

I an not gonna read 7 pages but how about putting the memory card in card reader and try again....
Also it's worth looking in device manager to see if your camera is seen...if not it could be you usb drivers are corrupted...delete them and do a re scan and it will load them back....
You can youtube on how to check device manager snd delete and rescan usb ports...
BTW have you tried all the usb ports abd got the same result?
