Default shooting movies with Olympus C4000

I posses Olympus C 4000 Zoom digital camera. I know that it is able to shoot about 250 seconds of avi, but shoot mode is set up to 33 seconds blocks. Is it possible to ajust shooting mode to shoot all 250 seconds at once (not in 33 second blocks).I appriciate any help.
Best regards,
Sandra Gligorijevic.

A frequently asked question.

There are two sets of numbers...the first one is the amount of time that you can shoot until the internal camera memory fills up (see below)...the second number is the amount of time you got remaining on the card itself...this number you can change with a larger memory card.

The first number is dependent on the amount of memory they put into your camera...this memory is faster and more expensive then the card memory and can not be changed or upgraded (think of it like the cache memory of a computer)...as you shoot it fills up, and when you're done shooting the info in this memory is sent to the memory card. You can't change the way this is done. You can only increase the amount of time by lowering resolution.
