Try formatting the card first. You can use another camera, or a computer with card reader for this. On a pc right-click on the card in My Computer and choose format. On a Mac, hold control and click on the card in Finder and choose format. Try it in the camcorder again. Also, some card speeds or sizes might not work in your camera. ie - 1gig or higher. Try a smaller card. Check your manual, check the manufacturer's web site, or go to google groups.

SOURCE: Memory card

When you use an SD card in mulitple cameras, each camera creates it's own folder beneath the DCIM folder. I'm not sure if you have a program that automatically opens when you insert the SD card in your reader, but perhaps you can try double clicking on "My Computer" and locating your reader/SD card and opening that folder manually. Once you're there, open the DCIM folder and see if there are multiple folders inside. Open each one to see if you can locate your pictures.

If you have a program that opens automatically when you insert the SD card you'll need to figure out how to tell it to look in other folders.

SOURCE: Can not detect sd card

Make sure your card is NOT an SDHC. the HX470x only reads standard SD cards. The largest that I have found is 4GB SD (not SDHC)

SOURCE: "please insert memory card in GZ-MG130U CAMACORDER

You need to tell it in the settings menu that you want to record to the hard drive instead of the SD card.
