Yes, the latest version of the software OPS v0.20
http://saturntools.sourceforge.net allows total access to the cameras
memory and firmware so you can download all movies or just the last,
format storage, enable mass storage and even upload movies. You can
change camera settings and even personalize the splash screen that
appears on power up. The camcorder contains a 128MB Hynix flash chip so
with mass storage enabled it can be used as a smart media card would.

Does the program or interface allow you to dump the mem and do it again?
