Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG57 HDD Camcorder
I have a 30 GB HDD JVC Everio hard disk camcorder (GZ-MG57U). I have removed all of my video files from the camera and when I plug it into my computer, it says that I have only 8 GB available for use. Why do I not have the full 30 GB? My trash is empty and my playlists are empty--I don't understand. It is configured as a FAT32, and I run a mac--could that be the problem? Can I restore the camera to it's factory settings?
It's probably just misreporting the capability. The camera uses 2 folders that are approximately 16 gigs (magically all hard drives lose a few gigs don't ask me why). But in FAT32 partitions, only 4 gigs can be used at the most at one time, so it might be guessing there are just 2 4 gig capacity folders.
