Try putting in a different memory card that you may have lying around and see if you can still take pictures and videos. If that works then you may need to go into setup via camera and format the memory card. If another memory card doesnt work it may be the camera. Let me know if this method doesn't work and I could be more than happy to give you another solution.

Have sony sx 63 camcorder. Want to view movies from a jvc camcorder on a pny sdhc but i get the message to create a database image file. Will this erase the movies on the memory stick?

I'm not sure how you're trying to view these files but assuming you've connected your camera to your pc and trying to view them by accessing them.

If so, the problem is that you're PC doesn't have the correct codecs to play your videos. The easiest way around this is to go to, download and install VLC media player. Excellent software and free.

I just bought a Z1285. I put SD memory cards with pics and videos made with my Z730 in it and i can view pics ok but when i try to view videos screen reads"unrecognized file format" Whats up with this

Hi this is a simple one!

The Kodak Z730 records movies at the following resolution and frame rates 640 x 480, 12 fps, 320 x 240, 20 fps while the Z1285 records movies at the following resolution and frame rates 1280 x 720, 640 x 480, 320 x 240, 30 fps therefore you cannot view the Z730 movies on the Z1285 and vice versa.

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage

Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

Cannot view the movies I made on my camera and downloaded to my Vista PC

I assume you can view them in you camera, right? If not, the following solution will not help.

The .MOV Apple QuickTime format Panasonic uses for its camera movie clips cause problem on with viewing, as seen from several other problem posts here and the net.

Some computer use a Win 32Bit operating system, other better ones use a Win 64. It is hard to believe QuickTime would let you load a 64bit version into a 32bit OS, or vice versa. But who knows. Rather double clicking on te file name itself, open QuickTime, then go to File Open and Browse to the file and select it that was. If this doesn't work, go to QuickTime website and try their User Forums first to ask a question or find a thread talking about movie files not playing. Else, CONTACT website and ask question. Post any solution here for readers.

File error

It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
