What make and model camera? Ten minutes total recording time or ten minutes per clip?

There are two possible reasons why the clip length may be limited.

1) Some cameras limit the file size of any one video clip. Try reducing the resolution and see whether you can record longer.

2) In some parts of the world video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. By limiting the length of a video clip, it's possible to avoid having a camera classified as a video camera.

For further details and limits, see your manual. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your camera.

Can't get full use out of 8GB SD card.


There is no problem. The camera can only create video clips up to 4GB in size. You can record two long clips, but no single clip can exceed 4GB.

The canon PowerShot SX210 IS only supports memory cards up to 4GB in size. Larger ones will work, but because of the format type the camera uses, it won't be able to read correctly past 4 GB.

( canon power shot a 530 ) IF i try to use a card of 4gb or more, screen says card error. is there anything i can do to use a 4gb card or more?


Usually that just means you are limited to the smaller size cards or certain version of the 4gb cards. As an example I can use the normal SD card but get that exact error if I try to use a SDHC version.

4GB is the cross over size so you get both versions but 2gb should work fine (and they are dirt cheap too!)

I have a casio exilim exz280 and i can't find what kind of memory card compatability it has anywhere. my main question is, will it support a SDHC 16gb card?


The manual does not specify a maximum size but says it does support an SDHC card. The smallest SDHC card is 4GB which is enough for 29 minutes of video recording. Therefore 8GB would seem adequate, although there seems no reason why 16GB should not be supported.

You can downloaded the manual free, here:-

It can use MMC cards or SD cards or SDHC cards up to 8GB in size.

SD cards top out at 2GB. 4GB and larger cards are technically SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards.

How many minutes does it's 64 mb internal memory hold? It says it has a 64 megabyte memory without an sd card.


Hello,
The internal memory included in that device isn't going to be good for more than a minute or two of video recording. Because of the detail required in video capturing as well as the audio feed that it has to record, the file sizes can get quite large. I would recommend grabbing yourself at least a 2GB SD card, and actually probably even a 4GB if you were looking for some longer record times.
Thankfully, SD memory has gone down in price CONSIDERABLY over the years, many retailers often have 4GB SDHC cards for $20 or less.
Hope this helps!

I can't transfer file larger than 4GB on my transcend 16GB but i can transfer different files less than 4 GB if the sum does not exceed 16GB


If your device uses the FAT32 file system, 4GB (minus 1 byte) is the maximum file size supported. It's simply a limitation of the file system.

I have the SD-1. It stops recording on my 8gb after only 43 min


Try formatting the card while its in the camcorder, this might sort the problem for you, also look in the camera's menu to see if its restricted to a certain amount of used memory at once, basically return the camera to factory settings.
I find a lot of camera's don't like certain SD cards anyway even if the camera says it supports them, Sandisc are making just about the best SD cards at the moment

kind regards

Problem with memory card


Hi,
your camera can only read so many partitions
( File Allocation Tables )
( partitions are sections of the total volume )
Like slices of a cake.
which equals 4 GB, total.

so it will never be able to read more than this.

Like FAT32 on a Pc, will read 32GB
but you could have a 100GB hard drive in the machine, still reads 32GB only, so even on a PC 68GB would be wasted.

The file format on the camera can not change,

So you are stuck with 4GB max reading.

Hope this halps
Regards
Richard.

Well technically, yes, however you need to sure the camera is compatible with the size of the card, a lot aren't!
so long as the card is compatible though, yes you will get increased recording time.
Double check with Fuji's support just incase!

good luck! =]
