Failure to initialize and use memory card SD/SDHC / canon fs100 camcorder

The camera fails to recognize the card and continues to flag error when the card is loaded and asked programed to format/initialise, it doesnt recognise the card, have tried new cards and have had no result. I have the exact same problem. Did anyone find a solution? I have the Canon camcorder FS100. I have problems getting it to use (read, write and initialize) SDHC memory cards. (Maybe because of the size 16GB and 32GB). Has anyone experienced the same problem, and more important, has a solution. (or maybe just an explanation, so I can search the solution elsewhere).

I had the same problem but fixed it by initializing the SDHC Card. It explains it in the manual. If you go to the menu and then down to the card it gives the option to initialize it. I did that for all my cards and now they work fine. Hope that helps...

I have a Canon FS200 and a brand new SD 64 GB card. When I try to initialize the card, the camera says, Failed: Process Terminated with Error, but it doesn't tell me what the error is. Can you???


I cannot tell you what the error is, but perhaps I can give you some tips on how to solve the problem. First, try to read the SD card on your computer. Is it formatted? if not, format to FAT 32. Are there any file structures? If so, erase and format the SD card to FAT 32.

If these activities do not work, then try with another SD or SDHC card (type 10 if possible) and see if the error is replicated.

From there, recommend contacting Canon customer support for assistance.

MOD Files on Mac OS, How to Play Camcorder MOD Files on Mac


Similar to TOD, MOD is a kind of recording format being used in digital tapeless camcorder like JVC, Panasonic, Canon. MOD video format is comparable to XDCAM EX, HDV and AVCHD.

MOD is used exclusively for standard definition video files, while TOD is used for high definition files. Both MOD and TOD are file-based formats that are stored on a random-access media. Directory structure and naming convention are identical except for extensions of media files. Standard definition video is stored in MPEG program stream container files with MOD extension; in most other systems these files have extension MPG or MPEG.

I bought a 16GB sandisk sdhc card for my Cnaon Elura 100. It says card error and will not initialize. What next?


Your camera is designed to use SD cards, not SDHC cards which are a later evolution of the SD card with different technical standards.

Your fix is to either stick with mini DV tapes or with SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

Canon Legria HF200 SDHC Initialization problem


This totally sucks. I have a similar issue with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When trying to initialize the card, its fails and says "Process terminated with error." It also says "check the memory card" when I first put it in. Write-protect is off. My other SanDisk class 4 SDHC card seems to work ok.
I could have sworn it worked before and I was able to transfer videos to my Mac on 10.6, but I can't remember for sure if I was using the SDXC card or just the built-in memory. Very frustrating.

Canon FS200 won't fully initialize 32 GB SDHC card


I heard about that quite a lot of time,in deed. But, I personally haven't load 16 or 32 GB memory card in Canon FS200. At the very begining, I was thinking of using 16 GB SDHC card instead of built in 8 GB memory. The shop assistance don't advice me to buy more than that 8GB because he also know that problem. So then, I am still using with 8GB untill now.

Canon FS200 won't fully initialize 16 GB SDHC card


I have the same problem with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When I try to initialize the card, its fails and says Process Terminated. The write-protect is off. The older class 4 SDHC card I've tried seems to work ok, which is a SanDisk 4Gb.

Reformatting sd memory card for canon camera an 8gb card and it told me I coudn't print pictures on my HP photosmart 380 series printer unless I reformatted my memory card??


If your camera is indeed an SD200, am sorry to say an 8GB SDHC will not work in this camera. The camera will fail to recognize it, and will do this by giving various problems as you've run into. The overall problem is that the camera was designed before the SDHC format came out (SDHC cards although the exact same in appearance are different in format than standard SD cards). The largest size card that the SD200 will recognize is a 2GB standard SD card.
