Question about Sanyo Xacti HD1 Memory Card Camcorder

1 Answer

Not saving recorded material on card

Whenever I am trying to save video, even though it says that I can save 3:34 of HD video on my 256mb card, it will not save the video if it is over just a couple of seconds long. Doesn't that piss me off? (yes)

Could it be that your SD card is not fast enough? There are a lot of different flavours of SD card. Particularly, some SD cards are faster than others.

There are two main types of SD card: the original SD cards and the newer SDHC cards. The latter look the same, and the Xacti HD2 (and I guess the HD1) takes both.

The former, SD cards, have speed ratings that are given in terms of how many times faster they are than floppy disks.
Rating Speed (MB/s)
6x 0.9
32x 4.8
40x 6.0
66x 10.0
100x 15.0
133x 20.0
150x 22.5
200x 30.0

SDHC cards have a "class" rating where

  • Class 2: 2 MB/s
  • Class 4: 4 MB/s
  • Class 6: 6 MB/s

    I find that my "class 6" SDHC card has few problems. This corresponds to a "40x" SD card.

    Your card is pretty small at 256 MB. These days cards are much larger. Could it be that you are using an old card that you bought for a previous camera? If so, perhaps the speed of the card is only 32x (i.e. 32 times faster than a floppy) or less. Perhaps the card is too slow?

    Just an idea.

    Sony HDR-xr 150 is showing data error whenever I play back the recorded videos


    Connect the camera with pc and try to check for error with any program like tune up or other online utilities... or if you have data card in it and you can open it in PC than simply copy your recorded videos so that you have a backup first. than you can freely show camera to any service center..

    I deleted date from Olympus VN-4100PC


    When the Digital Wave Player application copies the files to yourcomputer, the default location is under My Documents>Digital WavePlayer>Message. There, you will see FolderA, FolderB, etc. +Recording & Schedule folders.

    If the files are not there, use a file recovery application, such as PhotoRec to recover the deleted files.
