I don't like this crappy camera as well, but just advice to you in case you want to get something from this crap:
1) Never use SDHC card as this camera is going to work only with regular SD card.
2) Never use more that 2GB SD card.
3) Never plug or unplug your SD card while camera is ON.
4) Never attempt to use this camera if temperature below zero degree.
I found that camera has very weak power supply. 200mA Li-Po battery is very weak for cold conditions.
I removed this crappy Li-Po battery from the camera.
Then I soldered wires and put them out of the camera.
These wires have small connector from battery charger.
I am using external 1S Li-Po battery 1000mA/h with connector from servo.
This setup is much more reliable and I can shoot 2GB video non-stop at minus 3 degree celc. here in Canada.
I hope 4 "never" rules will help you a bit.
