Question about Video Cameras

1 Answer

My insignia hddv hdmi camcorder says memory full, even though everything we've shot was either downloaded or erased (too easily by my son, by the way). Is it possible the stuff is in a recycling can somewhere taking up memory? Would love to recall that footage that was erased.

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.

    I went to Best Buy and exchanged the camera because I feel the contacts for the SD card were glitchy. At any rate, I have found that the SD card should be larger than what I was attempting to use. I bought a new SD (4GB) and it worked just fine in the replacement camera. I inserted my two older SD cards (2GB and 258 MB) and the new camera did not recognize those.

    My suggestion: buy a new, unused card that is at least 4GB. Found mine on sale for $14 at Best Buy.

Sony DSC-W320 says "no space on memory card" even though it's completely empty


The problem most likely is caused because you are deleting EVERYTHING. Next time, instead of deleting everything, format the card in the camera instead.

My flip camera says its empty but when I try to record it says its full??


Your memory card may think it's full if you've been deleting pics from it when it's in your PC and not in the camera.

If you've offloaded all the pics you want to from your memory card, put it back in your camera and "reformat" the card - there should be instructions how to do this in your camera manual. (If you've misplaced your manual you can likely find an online version on the website of your camera manufacturer). Hopefully this will fix your problem.

From now on, (even if you have to buy a new memory card), don't do any editing or deleting of pics directly on the memory media while it is in your PC (or Mac). Offload your pics to a file of their own on the PC (you can edit pics from that file). Then put the memory card back into the camera, verify that you did indeed successfully offload the pics to the PC (with the media card out of the PC), then delete the pics from the card while it's in the camera.

Reformat the memory card periodically (in the camera) after you've offloaded your pics (reformatting will erase all pics so you've gotta be sure you captured them elsewhere) to maintain the 'health' & full functionality of your memory card.


thanks.

Even though I deleted all of the pictures, then took five or six, the message reads memory full. What's up?


Do you have an SD memory card inserted? Your camera only has a 32MB internal memory, which could easily fill up after taking 5 or 6 shots depending on what setting you have it on.

Greetings, I have the Insignia HDDV Camcorder. It plays video but doesn't play audio in VLC. Can you help me? Thank you


Did you install ffdshow that was included with the install cd?

ffdshow is necessary to decode the video files this camcorder creates.

Hope this helps!
