I only get 2minutes of video time after adding a 8GB SDHC card

This is a brand new 'jazz hdv178'. I inserted a 8GB SDHC card, formatted it and I get just over 2 minutes of video recording. I can upload the recording and it all works well except for the recording time. The camera gives no indication it recognizes the SDHC card when I insert it, the lock is off.

Is the SDHC card compatible or should I use a SD card?

    It's not the lock on the memory card. I tried a SD card and it worked fine. I guess the 'jazz hdv178' isn't compatible with SDHC cards.

There is small button on the card which needs to be unlocked so that the card is ready for recording. Also make sure you have changed the media from internal memory to Card in the settings section.

When can I purchase a memory card for the Jazz DVX50?

You can purchase an SD card any time you want, the DVX50 supports SDHC cards but will not support any card over 8GB. I suggest you take the camcorder to Best Buy so you can make sure you are getting the right SD card.

Hi I inserted a new 8GB sd and the camera keeps trying to re-format. GZ-MC 200

There are no 8GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Unless your manual specifically says that your camera can use an SDHC card, then it won't be able to. The maximum size of an SD card is 2GB. If you need more space, just carry a couple of cards and swap them, like people used to do when they filled up a film.

There are no 8GB SD cards. Cards this size are SDHC (High Capacity). SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Iwant to purchase a 8gb sd card for my jazz dvz100 camera. What is the specific part number or recomended brand to buy? Thanks Jerry

There are no 8GB SD cards. Any card that size is an SDHC (High Capacity) card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Any brand of SDHC card will be OK, if your camera can use SDHC at all. The difference between these cards is not the make so much as the class. The cheaper ones are class 2 (not very fast) while you pay more for class 6 (fast) or 8 (faster). The class should be specified, otherwise it's a slow one.

I have a Jazz HDV149 Digital Camcorder. when you turn it on and insert a memory card it asks you to format it. Yes is automatically highlighted but when you hit the center button to format nothing...

Try changing it to "No". I always have trouble figuring out whether highlighted means light or dark on these menus.

If it still doesn't format, maybe you are using a memory card with too high a capacity. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I just inserted a 8 MB card in and the camera says "Memory card needs formatting" I click continue, then it says "Formatting will delete everything on the memory card", no problem, it's a new card so I...

8MB or 8GB? If it's actually an 8MB card, you'll be able to put maybe two or three pictures on it, so I'll assume it's an 8GB card.

The DX4530 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, there are electronic difference that prevent them from working there. SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Sd card not recognizable

I read the following spec for your camera: Recording Media Internal Flash Memory 64MB Video/Image
SD/SDHC Up To 32GB Video/Image
So, I think that an 8 GB SD card should work.

Try another capacity and brand to make it work.

When I turn on my Jazz DV 152/ T20 it displays "Read card..." and then nothing happens...I have a 4GB SDHC card by SanDisk...both camera and card are this a faulty camera or am I doing something...

Usually the first thing you need to do with any SD card and Camera is to go into the settings of the your camera and Format the SD card. This has to be done for each memory card you use with that camera. i.e. a SD card formatted on a Panasonic HD camcorder won't work in your Jazz Camcorder. The formatting is different between the two camcorders. New SD cards don't come formatted.
SO try inserting the SD card into your Jazz Cam and rummage through the setting until you find your memory settings. From there find the Format Memory Card function, format the SD Card and you should be good to go.

Connect it with the USB cord, and explore the sd card... There will be a folder on it which says music. Open the folder and just drag & drop!
