Answers :

When recording movies in the SHQ image quality mode, I am restricted to 15 seconds of recording time per movie. Why?
In\015\012SHQ mode, the FE-230 records movies with VGA resolution (640 x 480\015\012pixels) and a frame rate of 30 frames per second. Recording this much\015\012data, this quickly, requires a large amount of camera memory and a very\015\012quick write time.
\015\012Olympus’ Type M+ and Type H xD-Picture Card media are high-speed\015\012cards and are able to process this volume of information with no loss\015\012in quality. Other commercially available media, including Type M and\015\012Standard type xD-Picture Card media, are not able to do so. For this\015\012reason, this model limits movie recording in SHQ mode to 15 seconds\015\012when using media other than Type M+ or Type H cards. The 15-second\015\012restriction guarantees that the camera will be able to process the data\015\012properly and produce a smooth, error-free movie during playback.
\015\012Keep in mind that there is no restriction on movie recording length,\015\012other than the capacity of the storage media, when recording in the HQ\015\012(320 x 240 pixels) mode.

I'm not sure if you are recording in SHQ or not. Try switching to HQ (press menu, then select image quality). It solved the problem for me. Btw I got the solution of the Olympus FAQ page on their website.

I have a small white Flip-like video camera offered by Sharper Image. I believe it to be perhaps the first model of the 'U-video' line. This video camera was offered by the newer, taken over Sharper Image. I did not buy the little video camera at a Sharper Image store, but at a Stein Mart store. It cost me $40. I'm looking for the manual for it. I want to know how to reset the date so that the date is correct when I video record something. This is not the latest of the Sharper Image Flip-like
