Hi!
I'm happy to say that your camcorder is capable of recording to SD cards with capacities greater than 2GB, as it is SDHC compliant.
However, I must ask why the SD card capacity would be of interest in a camcorder like this, as it records its video to MiniDV tape, and its photo function is limited to low-res stills.
Hope this helps!

What is the maximum SD capacity that jvc everio gz mg57 can support?


You may use any size SD card. Bear in mind that SD cards only go up to 2GB. This camera will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

SD card format ng no card


  • 1 Insert your SanDisk 8GB memory card into a card reader connected to your computer.
  • 2 Double-click "Macintosh HD" on your desktop.
  • 3 Click on the "Applications" folder, then the "Utilities" folder.
    4 Double-click "Disk Utility". Look on the left side to locate the drive that says "SanDisk.
    5 Select the capacity of the drive on the left side of the window. The capacity will state "8GB" or "8,388,608 kilobytes." Click on the "Erase" tab to format the memory card. When you see "SanDisk" listed as the device's name, the capacity will be located above. You need to select the capacity and not the device.
    6 Select the appropriate "Volume Format." Under the "Volume Format" button, select the format you wish to use. Select "Mac OS Extended" if the SanDisk 8GB will only be used on Macs, or "MS-DOS (FAT)" if you will share the card between a Mac and PC. Select "Erase" to complete the format of your SanDisk 8GB memory card.

    When I use different SD cards it says Card Error or Incorrect Operation? Tried to format or delet the files of the card but couldn't. It's a cam recorder nv-gs50


    Check with the instruction manual for the camcorder which type and capacity SD cards it will "support" and use only the specified cards. The camera will reject any card with a greater Gb capacity than it's system can support.
    The more recent your camera the greater card memory capacity will be supported.

    Hi I inserted a new 8GB sd and the camera keeps trying to re-format. GZ-MC 200


    There are no 8GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

    Unless your manual specifically says that your camera can use an SDHC card, then it won't be able to. The maximum size of an SD card is 2GB. If you need more space, just carry a couple of cards and swap them, like people used to do when they filled up a film.

    Use a higher quality SD card. PNY or SanDisk usually works well with flash camcorders. Also make sure it's a HCSD card ( High Capacity ).

    DVR 518 question regarding sd card compatibility;- will the product accept a SDHC card to 8gb I have difficulty in getting a standard SD card


    Hi,

    The manual is not very precise but you cannot get normal SD cards that go to up 8gb, the highest is 2gb.

    When they say 8gb they must mean SDHC.

    Hope this helps.

    I just insert a 4G micro card and says card error. Everything else works fine for 3 years ( never put a sd card before ). Thank you in advance Miguel


    Check your mini SD card and see if it has the SDHC (high capacity) logo on it. Originally SD cards, including the mini SD, had a 2GB limit by protocol. The DC10 was introduced when this was the most advanced protocol. Since then the SDHC protocol has been introduced, but the DC10 is not compatible with SDHC. You need to get a mini SD, 2GB maximum capacity.

    I have inserted an 8gb SD card and it will not record


    If it is 8GB, it is an SDHC (high capacity) card. The protocol for SDHC is different than that for an SD card. SD card protocol handles a maximum of 2GB. This camcorder came out in 2003, well before the SDHC protocol was developed, and the camera is not compatible with it.

    I have the SD-1. It stops recording on my 8gb after only 43 min


    Try formatting the card while its in the camcorder, this might sort the problem for you, also look in the camera's menu to see if its restricted to a certain amount of used memory at once, basically return the camera to factory settings.
    I find a lot of camera's don't like certain SD cards anyway even if the camera says it supports them, Sandisc are making just about the best SD cards at the moment

    kind regards
