Question about Panasonic HDC-SD5 Flash Media Camcorder

SD card unreadable

I bought a cheap SD Card. Worked fine when playing my video through the camera. Then I plugged into a card reader connected to my PC and it's all gone! Tried a freeware program that recovers files off SD cards but no go.

Has anyone experienced this? Is this a card problem or a reader problem ?

My netbook screen resolution is no good for canon instal disk


You didn't provide what netbook you got, but most netbooks today got built in SD-card readers. If your netbook does, the best solution is to remove the card from the camera and insert it into the netbooks card reader. The Canon G9 supports SD-cards, as well as SDHC, MMC, MMCplus and HC MMCplus compatible cards. I suggest using a SD or SDHC card.
You will not need to install canon software to access your pictures if you use the card reader, you will be able to access and copy/move them from the memory card in explorer (or equalent if you use Linux on your netbook). Also, it's a much faster way to move pictures from the camera to the computer, because the card reader interface is a lot faster than the USB interface to the camera.
If your netbook does not have an internal card reader, you could buy a SD card with built in USB, such as this one: http://www.cdrdvdrmedia.com/ultra-sd2-card-2gb-sandisk.html This SD card behaves like a normal memory card in your camera, but plugs directly to an empty USB port on your netbook. The card will be accessable as any removable storage, in Explorer (or equalent if you use Linux).
A third solution would be to get a cheap USB 2.0 card reader. Almost any cheap USB 2.0 accepts SD cards, and would be a lot faster than connecting the camera to the netbook with a USB cable.
I hope this help you!

Connecting my cam panasonic fz28 to my pc


To solve this problem, I bought an SD card reader.

All you have to do is plug your SDHC card into the reader, then plug the reader into your USB port, and you should be able to access your images/videos.

I have the same 8Gb SDHC 15 MB/s plus the same camera (FZ28) and it works perfect for me. - Doing it this way is much easier.

You can find SD card readers (Which will work also for SDHC cards) on ebay for a small price of around 2-3 pounds (£) at cheapest. - Just type in "SD Card Reader".

Hope this helps.

This sounds like corrupted files. Are you downloading these pictures using your camera (ie through a USB cable attached to your camera)? If so, may I suggest using a USB card reader instead. If already using a card reader, suggest buying another one as it may have gone bad.

You plug the SD card into the card reader, and then plug the reader into the USB port of your computer. It essentially turns your SD card into a hard drive that you simply copy and paste or drag and drop the files from onto your computer's hard drive. It's very simple, no software involved.

Card readers are much faster in downloading files and are much less likely to incur file errors. For these reasons most (if not all) professional photographers use card readers instead of downloading directly from the camera. Card readers are also very inexpensive. Here's an example of a nice cheap one. Try it, see if it fixes your problem. If so, then consider getting a better one later:

USB connection problem?


The Best solution is to get an SD card reader. Then you take the SD memory card out of the camer, put the Sd card into the reader and plug directy into a USB port.  They are very cheap to buy and quite handy.

Are you just plugging the camera straight into the computer? Does it come with software to install? Try plugging the camera in while the computer is off and then turn the computer on with the camera plugged in. Otherwise get a SD memory card reader that the SD card can plug directly  into and this connects straight to the computer.

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.

Cant find pics


The simplest solution is to buy a cheap SD card reader and connect it to your computer. Then put the SD memory card from the camera in the reader. Windows XP will open a dialogue window asking you what you want to do with the pictures.

The caa-03040s has a relatively slow USB connection. Get a USB 2.0 card reader and connect it to a USB 2.0 port on the computer for much faster download speeds than the camera is capable of.
