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.

I purchased a 4GB Sandisk Micro SDHC card and inserted it into my Samsung Gravity 2... when I tried to format it it said "Error"... and after that the phone will not even recognize that there IS an SD card...


your samsung Gravity 2 wont read the HC format, there is not much you can do sorry. the SD HC is a newer format for devices in the last year or so. Older devices will not accept the HC format cards. I did the same thing! And im in the business, easy mistake. Keep it around though you'll use it soon, just not in your Samsung. Gurvy

I have two sd cards that are brand new on is a pq1 4GB sd hc and the other is a pny optima 2GB sd when I put them inmy camera it says filesys e00100 what is it?


I own a Nikon D5000, that has a 'pqi 4GB SD HC' memory card inside.Within this camera is also something called movie mode, in other words I can record short movies. Now here is the problem, Nikon says how much I can record on the memory card, depends on the speed the memory card records. According th them, I can only record 5 minutes on a 2GB memory card. Does that sound right to you. P-l-e-a-s-e I need help in understanding this.
If this is true,......what side memory card (HD if possible) would I need to record 30 minutes in the movie mode. Thank you so much for your help.

Put new optima sd hc memory card in screen says memory card error


Sorry but the A400 was designed well before the SDHC format came out. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less).

Try putting a tiny piece of scotch tape over the lock slider. See if that works.

Just put in new san disk 4gb memory card and receiving error message - memory card error. I unlocked memory on card itself (that little gray sliver that goes up and down) What gives


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

PNY Optima SD HC 8GB isnt working on laptop


Youll have to get updates for your laptop card reader or get a new one which may have to be installed. Another method you may want to try would be to put the card back into the device you used it in and then hook the device up to the computer, most likely through the USB slot....good luck

SD HC isn't comptible with that device. The best you can do is 2gb.

You can only use SD HC cards for devices approved for it.
