Question about Sanyo Xacti HD1 Memory Card Camcorder
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)
SDHC cards have a "class" rating where
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.
