Camera Specs
Basic Operation

Camera Drive
When connecting the cam using the USB connector for the first time a box will pop up "installing drivers" which are the USB mass storage device and video camera USB device. A new drive will be listed on your pc, as example: Removable Disk (J;)
Pictures and Videos
All media files will be saved to the "DCIM/100HDDVR folder on the camera drive. Right click any of the media files you created in the folder for options like Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete. What I do is highlight all media, cut and paste them to a folder on my pc, this deletes them off camera and saves them to pc.

File names for all recorded media start with MINIxxxx

During charging the green led will remain solid, when fully charged the green led will shut off. USB takes about 1 hour 50 minutes to charge if the battery is completely empty. If the green led does not light and you know the battery is low try replacing the USB cable, in many cases this solves the problem. This cam can do a 45 minute video on full charge.

SD Cards

SD cards range from 2-32 GB. The cards used are the Micro SD/TF/SDHC with storage space 4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB. Tip: TF = TransFlash, SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity. Your local computer store may sell these cards but you will probably find them cheaper online. The higher the class number (2, 4, 6...) the faster the read/write speed. Transcend, Kinston, and SanDisk are popular brands. Class numbers will be circled, see pic below.

Class is the rate in which data flows to and from the card.
Class 2 = 2MB/second
Class 8 = 8MB/second
Class 10 = 10MB/second
This is the minimum data transfer for each card.

When inserting the SD card the brass pins on card will face towards top of camera.
To remove or insert SD card push card IN until you hear a "click" sound.
