What class rating is your memory card? It will be indicated on the card.
Expert:  Steve G. replied 2 years ago.
Never mind. It appears that the camera records video in 5 minute 'blocks'. It is a design feature of the camera unfortunately. There is no workaround.

This is not mentioned in the manual but I found it in several reviews of the camera. Here is one: http://www.reddit.com/r/photography/comments/2ic1bq/polaroid_cube_review_and_1080p_hd_video_footage/
