I think with yours the light flashing means fully charged.

Mine is the 720x version with date & time bottom right in yellow.

Speaking of which i cant get the date set, tried a few methods but none work for me so far.

Peace
I couldn't figure out the charging situation at first also. When I first put it on charge it just sat with the light solid yellow and I could feel the battery getting warm (it came fully charged). I pulled it off and played with it for a while (making a video), and when I put it back on charge it blinked for a couple hours then went to a solid yellow when it was full. So on mine, it blinks when charging and is solid when charged.

In order to set the date and time, this is what I did:
from here:
"For what you call the #3 camera - settime.txt and time.txt files don't work at all. It has to be a file named tag.txt reading EXACTLY this way:[date]
2009/10/22
03:45:00
There has to be a space after the first line AND AFTER THE SECOND LINE. And the time stamp starts when the key chain camera is powered on with this file on the root - not when the file is created - so create it with a time a minute ahead and then disconnect it from the USB (the proper way) and power up the keychain cam at that time.
Ronaldf says "all files and folders must be deleted before it will work properly. The tag.txt must be the only file on the card on startup"."

digitalwholesaleshop answered my email with a reply that it had shipped on 11-15. They said to expect 7-15 days in transit. Maybe I'll see it around Thanksgiving.

OR just maybe I'm telling the truth. Why would I BS my customers if I want to stay in business?

I'm not bashing my competitors - I'm selling a DIFFERENT, better product with proper backup and honest advice.

Any documentation that your product is better/different? My guess is that they are all made in the same factory.

Did you report this purchase for your state sales tax Sorry I just couldn't help myself
When it is recording the light goes out till you hit the rec button again then the light should come back on. Depending on what model you have, one has internal memory and one does not. If you got the one that need the memory you have to install the card first

you dont report every purchase immediately. i purchased it with a CC so i have a record. when i do my taxes it will be added in with the rest of the purchases

i'm not sure what the camera is doing. light-wise it seems like it is not doing what the instrucstions say it should. but, the fact that it wont mount on a computer is not encouraging. even if it is taking video it does me no good if i cant get it off.

some of these come with worthless usb cables, try another one

the ones with onboard memory (ver 1) have been known to have issues, including counterfeit memory causing the camera to fail

when did you order yours, BTW?

Yeah, i figured it out later that night, turns out the usb lead i got with it will not charge it, used a diff one and its fine.

As far as the date i tried many methods incl the one from that site but would not work for me. I was just reading on RCG and found that for my cam i needed to do the same as you but without ".txt" extension at the end, tag.tex would not work with mine.

A file called tag & in it

was all i needed.

On another note i notice most things seemed way out of focus, close up things were out and far away things were out of focus also. So i took it apart and turned the thing on the lens until i got it good. If i adjusted it so close up things were in focus then far away things were out, & visa-versa, so after much messing i have a good between and all is good now. Pity is peeing down with rain so i cant go test it out.

Peace

Just got mine, ordered it on the 8th. Everything seems to work. The lens on mine has a red tint. The light flashes while it charges and goes solid when full. It must be turned off after charging as the act of connecting it to a computer or a cell charger turns it on.

Initial pix look promising
