nope. The largest it'll take is 2GB SDIO-compliant SD flash media. SDHC is right out of the window with this model.

SOURCE: I put a new 4gb sandisk hc memory card into my jvc

Hardware of this camcorder supports up to 2GB memory card so 4GB is more than its capacity and causing error.
Try 1GB or 2GB memory card in camcorder.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a JVC

Hi,
JVC GZ-MG21U camcorder hardware does support maximum 2GB SD Card and more than 2GB memory card will not accepted by camcorder hardware.
Your 16GB and 4GB SD Cards are just fine but are not compatible with this particular camcorder and GZ-MG21U is also just fine and needs up to 2GB or less SD memory card.
It is just compatibility issue. Click JVC Support link to download user manual copy of GZ-MG21U and check page-67 of manual for memory card info.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

Have a 4Gb memory card but when I put it in SD slot to take pictures, it always indicates CARD ERROR even whe the card is unlocked.


From what I see of the specifications for the NV-GS25, it uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, which is electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I bought an sd micro chip for my jazz dv151 camcorder, but everytime i put the chp in it reads memory full. The chips work in anything else but wont work in the camcorder. How do I fix this?


Whats the size of your SD Micro chip? Is it 4GB or larger?

You probably bought a SD-HC chip (wich includes 4GB and larger chips). Any SD card that is bigger than 2GB is in this HC-format and will only work if the device supports it.

As you can see here in the description, your device does infact only support SD cards up to 2GB. http://www.amazon.com/Jazz-DV151-Digital-Video-Camera/dp/B001F7MXJS

I guess you will need to use smaller ones in order to make them work with your camcorder.

Best regards from Germany :)

I get error when initilize sd 4GB. "card error"


Try connecting the SD card to your computer and formatting it that way.
If this does not work, then the SD card may have failed.
Check the contacts on the SD card to make sure there is no debris on them.

I put in a new 4 gb sd card in camera and it needs to format then never formats what can i do to fix it?


It seems your camcorder is bit older model and its hardware does not support 4GB memory card that is why it fails to format it. New 4GB card is fine but its just mismatch with camera.
Try 2GB or lower capacity memory card in camera.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Memory card error replaced card but still get error message?


Is it the SD memory card? or the Micro HDD(4GB) you're pertaining to. In case of micro hdd not detected or error, micro hdd socket(CF) assembly has a problem most likely, need to be replaced. SD card; check your SD card's capacity, it can handle only up to 2GB or try to format your card elsewhere and re insert it again in your camcorder, if it will prompt you "FORMAT SD CARD?" you're lucky

Card Error


From what I know, and card over 2gb needs a different reader. in this case, I am guessing that the card is an SD card. If you look carefully, you will see HC right below the SD logo. these are High Capacity SD cards, totally, different from traditional SD cards. so what you need to do, is find a 4gb regular SD card (highly doubt one exists) or get a smaller regular SD card (2gb Max I think)

Formatting SD Card to shoot stills


Hello Sir

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.
