Question about Panasonic HDC-SD5 Flash Media Camcorder

1 Answer

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 ?

I have a Flip Video Camera Ultra HD and When I plug it into my pc I have no DCIM folder


you can only record on the onboard memory, right ? or do you have an SD car reader on it ?

if it is onboard memory, then it might be dead ; maybe you could consider reseting the device to it's default config, or flash it's bios file...

I had an HG10 Canon HD camcorder, and one day the picture function died : couldn't record on the SD card and all pics in the DCIM folders were damaged/unreadable (even with perfect video mode, the HG10 is in a closet now...)

How do i connect my sdr-h40 to my laptop?


You have two options of connecting that camcorder to your computer. If you have any SD card readers in your house, you can take the SD card out of the camera and put it in an SD card reader. This would be the most direct way to manipulate the images and videos you have on the card since a lot of cameras only allow copying to, but not from the computer (See next paragraph)

The second option you have is to simply plug in a mini-USB cable into both the camera and the computer. This method will allow you to view the pictures/video, but may not allow you to edit the contents of the internal storage (the SD card).

How do i play whats on the memory card nothing plays video only audio. or what do i need to convert it


First, make sure you have it on CARD (and not DISK), and on the "playback" (and not record) mode. Next, does the camera play back other video clips normally, but just not a specific clip ?
Does the selected video clip frame (index) shown on the LCD screen have a picture ? If not, i.e. it is blank (dark), then it is likely that no video was recorded (i.e. just the audio) when you were shooting that video clip.
If there is a picture (of the video clip frame index on the LCD screen) and only audio is playing, try downloading the clip (from the SD card) to your computer, or simply try to play the video on the SD card (inserted directly into your SD card reader on your computer, or via a USB SD card reader) and see if the video clip will play normally on your computer.

My polaroid dvf 130 camcorder won't connect to my computer.the software it came with says it doesnt need a driver since I have windows xp what should I do?


this is what i did, and it worked perfectly. go out and get a sd card * any gig u want* as soon as u put the sd card into the camera, FORMAT IT!!!!. do that before u do anything else. don't format it on ur pc or laptop. format it on the camera. if u do that it will work perfectly. i don't know why it wasn't in the manual to format sd card first. but if u try to take pics first, that will mess up the entire system and u will be assed out a sd card. it took me 3 sd cards to figure this out. the cards worked fine but not in the camera. then i formatted it on the camera first and it works fine. the other sd cards i use for other things, i won't discard them but they won't work in the cam. but remember again GET NEW SD CARD AND FORMAT THE CARD IN THE CAMERA FIRST.

Can i download from my video camera to computer,what cable do i need to purchace.


Hi...

There are two ways to download your picture to the computer,
  1. If your camera have SD card you need to but a card reader then plug your SD card to the card reader and plug your card reader to your computer. direct to the motherboard. then start download your picture
  2. If you want to buy a cable make sure that the cable you buy is fix to the port size of your camera, i think the size of that bale is 2.5
Good luck !!!

I recorded a video on my samsung sc-dc 164 camcorder and i used my SD memory card instead of the disc. when i try to play my video from the SD card recording it won't play but can only hear audio from my...


how did you transfer the video from the card to your PC?

did you connect the camcorder to your PC or did you use a memory card reader?

if you can play the audio then what you need is the right video codec for the unit
try searching for video codecs through search engines

make sure that the software that you are using to play the video plays the file format of your video,

try using roxio, then connect the camcorder to your computer via USB, make sure that the drivers are installed, play the video through your camcorder then use roxio to capture it real time instead of the usual "copy-paste"

Computer doesn't see disney flix camera


Use a sd card in the flix, for the most part, camera's, phones, if they have a sd card,or memory card, the pc might see the card and load it as a drive, as you said you looked under my computer.

You should also get a cheap sd card reader, a few bucks,$5-6,
this way, if your pc does not see the card, you can put the card into the reader and plug it into the usb port, and import/export all day long. Not sure if this flix can format the card,read your manual,
but always format the card once(new card) with the flix, and never format the card with windows. Hope this helps.

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.

Transfer movie from mini tape to computer - JVC GR-D770U


Product called EasyCap, for about 15 bucks, "can be found online" Has USB plug. Use your cable that has the 3.5 pin that goes out to rca cable, yellow, white and red. EasyCap has the RCA to USB then to computer. Use Windows Movie Maker, comes with XP & Vista, capture while playing from there. I just converted about 20 full tapes from one cannon mini 8 and 15 from a jvc dv onto a TB drive.

Panasonic SD Card reading problem


Yes. The device was not using a standard file system. There usually is no cure. Try this. Format the card in the device and try one more time. Many don't know to perform this step.
