Low speed card,please record at a lower resolution

Not all memory cards are created equal. Some cards are faster than others. There's more data to be recorded with a high-definition video than with a lower-resolution video. Your card apparently isn't fast enough to handle that much data.
There are two possible solutions. One, as the camcorder suggests, is to record at a lower resolution. The other is to get and use a faster card.
Since you didn't specify the make and model of your camcorder, I can't tell you what speed card you need. Please refer to the specifications page in the manual, or the section on memory cards.

I have a Sony DCR-SR43 handycam. I am a amateur photographer. When i shoot some shots, the file size is very large (208 or so..). Is there any software to compress the file.

The size of the file depends mostly on the resolution. Higher resolution gives more detail and the picture can be printed larger without showing pixelation, but this requires more data, so the files are larger. Recent cameras offer resolutions stated in terms of 10 or 14 megapixels. That much data needs a large file to store it. Reducing the resolution in the camera settings to 5 or 3 megapixels (or less) will give you a much smaller file. In the camera, this will usually be specified in terms of pixels wide by pixels deep (e.g. 1600x1200).

You can reduce the size of a picture in a photo editing program (resize or resample), which will also reduce the resolution.

Compressing the file is not likely to help much. Usually these files are in a format (.jpg) that is already compressed. The camera may allow more than one quality of compression. You can set this to compress the pics more, but this will reduce the quality of the image and introduce more digital noise. It is also possible to increase the amount of compression when saving an edited file in a photo editor, by specifying this at the point of saving. None of these will make as large a difference as reducing the resolution by resizing.

Recorded images are jiggety, even if the video is taken with the camera set on a table. is this repairable?

I don't know what you mean by jiggety. If they are showing large pixels, it may be that you have the resolution set low instead of high. If you mean they are jumping around on the screen, then that sounds like a fault.

It is probably not possible to repair this type of camera for less than the cost of buying a new one. If it is under warranty, they will probably just replace it.

Why are the photos taken with my handycam not much clear..??plz help photos are more essential for me than video recording..plz plz do give m a solution

This camera has a resolution of 640x480 pixels. This is less than most modern cellphones and the images are not suited for enlargement. If you want higher quality in photos, look for a digital still camera.

Cannot view camcorder slides on television taking film of holiday but cannot watch on television as all fuzzy

Unless you have an HD (High Definition) camcorder, the resolution of the video (or pictures) taken may be too low for it to show well on a (large) TV screen. Hence, you'll see the videos/pictures as blurred/fuzzy

I try to record and in a few minutes I will get a message "memory full". I know it could not be because it was hardly on. There is nothing on it either. Can you help me? (VuPoint DV-DM1_VP)

The camera comes with only 32mb internal memory. In high resolution that will get you about 4 minutes of video if you're lucky.You need to install an SD card of up to 1GB. 1GB in low resolution will give you 5 hours of recording, high resolution about 90 minutes. When you first turn on your camera, there is a counter in the top right of the screen which tells you how many HH:MM:SS you have left in memory.

Can it use a digital card?

the card is used only for still photos. it can capture photos at a low resolution 640x480 - so not a substitute for a 3mp camera, but useful if you need to get some stills in for reference or on screen only use.
