Storm Won't Save Video

The first couple videos I took with my new Storm couldn't be saved, got an error saying that video format wasn't compatible. So I switched to the MMS format option from "normal" and it worked. Doesn't seem right that normal wouldn't work? Anybody have any idea what's up? Somraj

Jeff: If you mean Storm software 4.7.0.99, I'm running 4.7.075 and when I check for updates my device says none available. Somraj

Re: Storm Won't Save Video

Re: Storm Won't Save Video

This only helps if I know how to download .99. My Storm says my .75 is current when I do Wireless Upgrade from Advanced Options. Can't do it from my Mac desktop. Any way to get the .99 version? Somraj

Re: Storm Won't Save Video

I don't have desktop software on a Mac. Isn't that necessary to download and install .99?

Re: Storm Won't Save Video

Somraj,

 

You can save videos just fine with v75, I am doing it.

Since the Storm is designed to do multiple things at once, sometimes, programs don't close even after you stop using them.  You are probably using too much RAM already on your Storm, which is why the camera is unable to record the file.

 

I suggest you remove the battery and start the Storm off fresh.  Then go to the video camera and try to record and then save the recording.  NOTE, having the camera and the camcorder features 'active' together is something that must be avoided if you want to be able to consistently record videos...

 

You can try upgrading to v99 if you want... but I personally don't think its worth the hassel.  Especially since a better version will be out in end of March.  If you have nothing but spare time and would like to install V99 then go ahead, but note that you will probably just finish fine tuning your download by the time the official once is released from Verizon.

 

Best of luck!

 

NOTE: If I have helped, please give me some Kudos!!! :smileyhappy:

OS upgrade requires Desktop Manager. Which is only available on Microsoft Windows.
Use Parallels or VMWare or something else, you have to launch a Windows session.

Re: Storm Won't Save Video

I had the same problem.  Try to hit the menu button when you want to stop recording and select "view videos" the video you just recorded will show up and you should be able to view it.
