Question about Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 Flash Media Camcorder
I have a new (1 month) Sony CX-12 camcorder. Using the 4gb memory stick pro duo Mark 2 which came in the box there is no problem. When I insert the 8gb memory stick pro duo (not mark 2) I get a message on insertion and every time the card is accessed that says "Memory stick may not be able to record or play images correctly." So far all images have been OK but every time the message gets displayed a white message box covers the entire screen. The manual says that the camcorder can use any Memory stick pro duo, not just Mark 2, up to 16gb. I inserted the 8gb card in my computer's card reader and it read the card without a problem. The three files that I had recorded played just fine on the computer.
I just has the same problem, that is to say, I bought a 16gb stick off eBay and it came up with that warning. So I brought the camera and stick into Sony retail store to determine the problem and although he didnt give me any details as to why he thought it might not be working properly, he asked me what I paid for it on eBay and deducted that amount from me buying a new one from them. Although it cost me C$120 ($60 after my deducting my eBay purchase), it friggin works and thats a relief!

This is a feature and not a defect of the CX-12 that reminds the user that the memory stick inserted might not be able to record the data from the camera effectively. HD video requires a memory stick with a relatively fast data read/write speed, and the CX-12 recommends not using any other stick that is not Mark 2.
Fortunately, though, as you have found out, it does not affect the camera's ability to record in non-Mark 2 sticks.
Hope this helps!
