I got a trail cam i leave every night on my hunting spot. When i pick the flahs card i use to record the videos captured during the night, sometimes i find 0 byte avi files, mixed with good ones, for instance, last night 10 avis were captures, from 1 to 3 all ok, from 4 to 7 i got 0 byte files and from 8 to 10 are okay too. This is so strange.

I guess this can be some missing pointer or anything? So ive been thinking that its possible the files are actually on the flash memory but its the file header or pointer not working.

Im reading the flash memory from Windows 7.

Not sure why, but have you tried formatting the card with your device then see if you still have this issue?    It seems like some sort of corruption of the file.    Maybe try another card to see if this issue is the card or the device.

What is the used space of the flash card shown by Windows and how bin the files? Do they show equal sizes?
Reformat the flash or replace it.

I reformat the card, but couldn't solve the issue, so strange. I bought a new cam, since i was having this trouble every once and then.
