SOURCE: Formatting memory stick.

You can use the MEMORY FORMAT functions to completely delete all images and options on the Memory Card, including protected images. * The format function restores the Memory Card to its initial state. * The Memory Card supplied with this camcorder has been formatted already. Attention If you execute the MEMORY FORMAT function, all images will be erased completely and erased images cannot be recovered. 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER mode. 3. Press the MENU button. 4. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY and press the ENTER button. The sub menu will appear. 5. Select FORMAT from the list and press the ENTER button. 6. "ALL FILES ARE DELETED! FORMAT REALLY?" appears on the screen. 7. Using the MENU DIAL, select the item. NO : To return to previous menu YES : To start formatting. 8. Press the ENTER button. If you selected the YES, COMPLETE! appears on the screen when the MEMORY CARD formatting is finished. 9. To exit the menu, push the MENU button.

SOURCE: lost data from samsung memory pen

Hello, sorry to hear of your memory stick problem, I take it that you have used this one lots of times before yes? if not and it was indeed a new one it should have had a format done on it before use.
If it was not formatted the pics you put on it will be lost I am sad to say.

Memory card error


When you tried to format, did it complete formatting? If format failed then the memory is bad. Buy a replacement. Format should be completed in the camcorder for it work right.
If format completed, and you can write to and read from the memory card on the PC, then there may be a problem with the camcorder card reader. Try blowing out the card slot with canned compressed air. (Don't use a tire inflator) And gently wipe off the contacts on the card with a QTip dipped in alcohol. Good luck.

SD card format ng no card


  • 1 Insert your SanDisk 8GB memory card into a card reader connected to your computer.
  • 2 Double-click "Macintosh HD" on your desktop.
  • 3 Click on the "Applications" folder, then the "Utilities" folder.
    4 Double-click "Disk Utility". Look on the left side to locate the drive that says "SanDisk.
    5 Select the capacity of the drive on the left side of the window. The capacity will state "8GB" or "8,388,608 kilobytes." Click on the "Erase" tab to format the memory card. When you see "SanDisk" listed as the device's name, the capacity will be located above. You need to select the capacity and not the device.
    6 Select the appropriate "Volume Format." Under the "Volume Format" button, select the format you wish to use. Select "Mac OS Extended" if the SanDisk 8GB will only be used on Macs, or "MS-DOS (FAT)" if you will share the card between a Mac and PC. Select "Erase" to complete the format of your SanDisk 8GB memory card.

    I bought a new Memory stick for my Sony DCR-TRV320 Camcorder and when i switch my device to memory mode, it tells me "Memory Stick Error."


    Check the following:
    Memory Stick is inserted in correct position and orientation in camcorder. Try re-inserting several times.
    Write-protect tab is switched to allow writing to memory stick (on back of memory stick)
    Memory Stick is formatted in FAT file system (this should already be done except if memory stick has been formatted in a computer in a different format)
    Memory Stick is not over the maximum capacity memory stick of the camcorder.
    Memory Stick is not full.
    Memory Stick is clean and dry.
    The dcr-trv320 is a 2000 yr. model and came with a 4mb capacity stick and can probably only use up to a 128mb capacity stick or possibly 256mb. Most memory sticks you can buy today are 1GB, 4GB, 8GB etc. memory stick pro duo. and are probably incompatible. E-Bay has some of the old memory sticks like the 128mb for sale.
    There is a slight possibility that static electricity discharge zapped the stick. Try another memory stick or try the stick in another device.

    I have a new 8gb Kodak SDHC and it says on my camera "Format not supported" How can I format this card?


    From what I have read, the Samsung SC-X300L only supports memory cards up to 4gb. I also tried an 8gb card, with no luck.

    I have just purchased an hdr-cx105e camcorder.It works fine on the hard drive but i have problems when adding a memory stick. I have tried a 16gb pro-duo just purchased, an 8gb from my sons psp, a 4gb and...


    I read the manual in .pdf format off of the sony.uk site.
    It does appear that it's not that hard to do what you did according to the manual, and you tried to use several memory sticks pro duo from Sony.

    So, I do not understand why it would give you this error, unless the camcorder is faulty, somehow.

    I would take it back to the place you bought it, and ask for an exchange for the same item after explaining what happened to you.

    Good luck on this.

    "Format error" with sony MHS-CM1 webbie, 16GB produo


    There is a firmware update available for your Camcorder at this link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=MHSCM1&SelectOS=7 Download and follow the site instructions for installing it. The high capacity memory stick PRO is probably beyond the current camera's capacity to recognize and the firmware update should fix it.

    Will not recognize 16 GB SDHC Card - Help Please


    I had a literally terrifying experience with Aiptek customer service.

    I called up Aiptek to ask if it was possible to get my memory cards working. I have two 4GB SDHC PNY cards, which th ekid at target reccomended after loking at the back of the box.

    I was told by aiptek tech support that PNY cards will not work in the A-HD camera.

    When I mentioned that the box says it will take cards up to 32GB, and asked him if this was not false advertising. The representative became irate and started insulting me, using valgure language, and calling me a liar.

    At this point I had enough of his abuse and yelled at him F.U!

    What happened next is Truly Absurd and Outrageous!

    The man behind the telephone at Aiptek told me he was going to send 5 guys to my house to assult me and my fammily!
    THIS IS NO JOKE!
