We put the required SDMMC 4gb card in the camera and I can still only take 9 pix or 30 sec. of video. The camera shows 9MB of available memory when no pix etc. have been taken, which is the same as when no card is installed. I've read the user manual from cover to cover and no help.

Okay, ours is a different brand (JVC) but they may have some basic similarities in function. To playback video clips stored on the memory card, put the memory card in the card reader slot of the computer and put the files onto the computer. Playback the clips from your computer video or photo file. (Ours won't playback video stored on the memory card through the camera.) To playback video clips stored on the camera hard drive through the camera, we open the viewer screen, look at the function keys on the camera body, select the "Play" button.On the screen it displays thumbnails of the various video clips. We use the toggle/function key to select from the menu containing options for playback, edit, delete, protect, etc.
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.
I couldn't find any info on the net blogs I looked at, however, it's possible that the cpu doesn't recognize a larger than 4 gb card. Try your old 4 gb, if it works, that's probably what's going on unless you have a bad 8 gb card. Not all cards are upwards compatible due to engineering limitations.
The internal memory included in that device isn't going to be good for more than a minute or two of video recording. Because of the detail required in video capturing as well as the audio feed that it has to record, the file sizes can get quite large. I would recommend grabbing yourself at least a 2GB SD card, and actually probably even a 4GB if you were looking for some longer record times.
Thankfully, SD memory has gone down in price CONSIDERABLY over the years, many retailers often have 4GB SDHC cards for $20 or less.
Hope this helps!
To record video, a microSDHC card with Class 4 or higher performance is required. microSD memory cards (256MB to 2GB) and microSDHC memory cards (4GB) have been tested for the following brands: Panasonic, Toshiba, SanDisk, ATP. No others have been officially tested and can therefore be guarenteed to work
Is it the camera memory or the SD memory? Look on the menu screen on the bottom right. If the camera is not recognizing your SD card, it is saving to the camera memory which is very small and may give you 20 secs of video. It is supposed to automatically recognize your SD card but may not be doing that at all. If it doesn't do it automatically, I have found no way to get it to do it. The menu contains no option for formatting an SD card and it can't if it cannot recognize it anyway. I have tried reformatting the SD card in another camera. It may be the SD card size is too small and it won't recognize. I don't know. I have one and can't get it to work (recognize either one of two SD cards that I already had) and plan on taking it back to Best Buy to see if they have a solution before I buy new SD card. Anyway if you see "int" in the lower right that means it is recording to the internal memory and not your SD card.
