Question about JVC Everio 25x/20GB Hard Disk Drive Camcorder

2 Answers

Memory card space

I've downloaded all pics and videos to my PC, and deleted everything on my memory card, but it only shows 26 mins left of recording time?????

Should it not go back to starting point? which in my case would be one hour.

Thanks!
Maribel.

    Thanks Bants!



    Yes, you are right... I had it set up to "ultra fine", but the more I decreased the quality, the more time would show up. "Economy pixel" would give over 2 hours!!!!!



    This was very helpful information... I guess I need to buy another memory card, I need my video to have really good quality.

THE CAMCORDER RECORDING IS OF ONE HOUR AS YOU SAY.
CONFIRM IT IS ONE HOUR AT ITS HIGHEST PIXEL VALUES .Actually it must be 1 hour at its lowest pixel value ,and as you increase the pixels ,the recording time decreases.(26mins).
record at a lower pixel value and see the difference.
This information should help you a lot .bye.

Usually it will go back and show the time once you actually start recording. If that is not the case then you should format the storage folder on the device to ensure it was properly deleted.


Thanks,
Nate

My husband has 'lost' all our recordings on our video camcorder. an they be recovered? He thinks he tried to delete 1 recording but they've all gone. They were saved on a memory card. Thanks.


Hello,
definitely fixable. First off stop using that sd card, when a file is deleted it basically just makes it invisible, and lets the device know that the space it occupied is up for grabs. When you plug the camera into the computer via usb cable, or the flash card into a card reader it is mounted on it as a removable hard drive. Using a recovery program you should be able to un-delete anything, that wasn't written over.

This seems like a very strait forward free tool, just point it to the drive letter the card/camera is mounted to, and follow the instructions. If this tool does not work out for you there are plenty of other ones out there to try, not to mention pay versions.
Best of luck!

Hi there, I want to record my son's graduation this week but my SONY HDAVCHD Handycam Model # CMDS Hybrid HDD keeps on showing a message "HD movie area in HDD is full" . I have deleted all...


Hi Antony,


Firstly please check if the source for recording is the inbuilt space of hdd or the memory card.

If it's hdd which is selected as source for the recording , then may be you have deleted files from the memory card and not hdd and if it's the memory card that has been selected , then may be you have deleted files from your hdd and not from the card, which makes the camera show up this message.


It's always better to restart the camera after you have deleted a huge amount of files , as it would auto refresh and calculate the free space appopriately.

If you have any specfic queries , further , feel free to ask.


Hope this helps ..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

My flip camera says its empty but when I try to record it says its full??


Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.

If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.

From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC (you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from the card while it's in the camera.

Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full functionality of your memory card.


thanks.

I accidently deleted my hd movies on the sony handycam model : hdr-sr5e. how can i recover these files and i use a macbppk pro. Appreciate a speedy reply. Thanks Feroz


I has success with asoftech data recovery program, you can download the program from
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

Please be noted that your camcorder memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

I tried to transfer the videos from the internal memory into my computer and delete the ones in my camcorder and then it wouldn't recognize the the internal memory. When I tried to put everything back it...


Your computer won't recognize the the internal memory maybe because it need some driver, or you can try to use a memory reader. Your memory card remain so little space to get new recording, so if not all of the things on your camcorder is important, you can del some when your have a play back of it by your camcorder.

I need to recover a video i deleted less than a month ago.


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the best ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech data recovery as it saved my life many times. download from

I have the Everio 30BG and have downloaded all the files onto my computer, however there is a message showing 'insufficient space' when I try to record, and yet there are not files. HELP>


Are you saving to the micro SD card or to the HDD? You need to go into your menu options to ensure that you are saving to the HDD automatically. Sometimes I used to save to the SD for pics and the HDD for video (set up in the menu). Maybe you are deleting the HDD files but automatically recording to the full SD card?! Check

IAM USING SONY CD..FOR TAKING PICTURES..AND NW .WHEN I WANNA COPY THE PICS IN MY PC..THE PICS R NOT GTNG DISPAYE??..WHAT CAN I DO TO VIEW THE PICS IN PC???


Hi,
camcorders will usually record videos in Tape/cd/dvd and the pictures will be saved on to a memory card, if available. So if your camcorder is having memory card then your pictures may be saved on to it. So remove the memory card from your camcorder, put it in any laptop card reader and transfer the pictures in it.
I hope this solution is useful to you.
Thanks
