Xacti VPC-HD1000 "Problem with SD card" "FORMAT / FULL FORMAT"

I have a problem:

I just bought a Xacti 1000 and a 16GoB SD(HC) card (Class 6, from Apacer).
When I first powered my cam with the card in it, and selector on CAM, I read the message "Format / FULL FORMAT", and the cam said ("problem with the SD card", with a woman's voice...!).

I tried a few things:
- tried to re format the card with the cam: the process stopped 2h30 latter with the batt low level... (2 times),
- put the card in a computer: but it was not even detected;
- tried another PC wich could see the card and formated it in a 1 partition FAT32 format (as specified in the manual),

Nothing worked! then I tried another card (1Gb Scandisk SD card):
-same screen on Xacti: "FORMAT / FULL FORMAT"
-formating with Xacti didn t succed either....

Given that I saw this cam working (the seller demontrated the cam right when I bought it!), I assume it should work and I am doing something wrong, or I should do something that I DON'T know!!!

HELP!

;)

What was the speed of the second card? Scandisk are good cards. I think that the only important difference between cards is the speed.
>the process stopped 2h30 latter with the batt low level... (2 times),
You could try formatting with the camera in connected to the recharging shoe thing.

I have the same problem with a 1GB card because I shot the "Full Format". and now I must buy another one. For now on you must press the "Format" key not the "Full format". Is a problem with this "full format" I think.

Can't get started


Could it be that the SD card is not fast enough? I think that SD 40x or SDHC class 6 is needed from my experience (I am not sure what it says in the manual). What speed/class is the card you are using? I get these sort of problems intermittently on my HD2 (the predcessor to the HD1000) when I use a slower card.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1- doesn't do anything in record mode


As I have been writing on other HD1/2 problems, sometimes it can be the card which is an issue. If the card is too slow or perhaps corrupted then the device can find it difficult to record.

This and other soft faults (that are reperable by turning the power on and off, changing or reinserting the card, removing the battery) are often indicated by a flashing red recording light.

Mp4 player


You can try Nero 8 (www.nero.com) which has a cool player (Nero Showtime) and a user friendly transcoding/DVD authoring tool (Nero Vision) to offer. You may also consider Videolan VLC (www.videolan.org) which is free, open source, less user-friendly but it supports batch file conversion -- a realloy cool features when you have a dozen+ video files to convert.

Not saving recorded material on card


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.
