Your memory card has a lock switch on it or the ram you are using is not compatible with your camcorder. Meaning it cannot read the memory card, so please try another brand...

the Go-hd does not record any footage into thecamera no AV input it will have a higher gain meaning the sound going into the camera will be too loud there is no medium level

Saying card protect and won't let me record


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Why is card protected


There is a small slider on the side of the card to enable write protection - you have probably inadvertently slid this to the "write protect" position. It should be in the position shown in the pic to allow writes.

It keeps saying card protected everytime I try to record. I downloaded my videos on my computer and tried to earase the card and it keeps saying card protected.


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Unlock memory card


There's a tiny slider on one side of the memory card. The slider has 2 positions 'locked' and 'unlocked' That should sort the problem.

Deleting files on HD720p Aiptek camcorder


You are not doing anything wrong. For some reason, Aiptek doesn't give you this option on the camera. You have to insert you SD card into a reader and delete it that way. Ya, I know, doesn't make sense. Also, a feature I hate is it does place your videos into one continuous file. Only video clips, so each time you stop then start recording, it creates a new file. Anyway, I've had my Aiptek since 10/2008 and no problems so far. Great indoor videos. Not too crazy about the still pictures though.

You cannot transfer or copy images recorded on one device to another - even if they are the same file type, the formats are incompatible.

My Aiptek keeps coming on then shutting off! It's brand new, I've tried taking the battery out but it still does the same thing


Mine does this if the battery is not charged. Make sure the battery is installed with the contacts lined up (my daughter is a pro at putting the battery in upside down, and it doesn't connect to anything that way!) and charge it up overnight.

If it's still giving you trouble the next day, post back and we'll try something else.

File failed message


The same thing happens to me when I try to record thru the "A/V in jack". It appears (my first thought) that the camera is trying to record to the internal drive and it runs out of memory really quick. But then, when I play it back, (the small 15 seconds or so) the audio and video are not sync'd. Most of the time at least. Very inconsistent. It also locked up and froze for me too. I had to remove the battery to reset it. Once or twice it recorded normal, (once when I reset the default settings and another time just out of the blue) - I thought I had it solved but it went back to "File Failed" after about 17-20 seconds of recording on the next record session.

I have the thing packed up ready to take back, but am looking for a solution so I can keep it..

Card protect


For some reason, the SD card in your camera is being viewed as write protected. There is a small "switch" on the SD card that slides. Slide it up and down a few times and try it again. If that does not work, here is the solution that worked for my camera. Place masking tape (opaque, used for painting) over both positions of the switch. I had to put 2 pieces to make it inflexible. Be sure not to get tape on the metal contact points. I hope this works for you. It fixed mine, although I don't really understand why. If this doesn't work, try a new card.
