Question about Polaroid CAA-03040S Camcorder
I have the same camera and I have trouble getting SD memory cards to work. I have the same problem as the person above ( locked ) and it is not due to the physical switch on the card itself. I have read the web . googled it and found that the card reader in my laptop does not read larger size sd cards and can format them if they are not in fat16 format an show them as locked. Someone on another board recd a format through a win2000 and xp machine with the same card reader.
I tried it with a card reader that failed in vista (my laptop) and it worked on win2k and barffed on xp. This is far from a simple answer but I felt it might help.
I have tried the format through the poloroid rohs ( caa-03040s )
through win vista laptop cardreader that works and reads other (properly formatted ) sd cards
and I tried it with Vista sp1 newly installed (what a cumbersome pig) and with a rec'd patch from microsoft. both failed.
then there is a Panasonic sd card format utility that never worked for me on a vista but on xp . much love !
If I had to do it again and save 4 hours of worktime .. get an xp machine and then get the flash memory makers to put out a good freeware utility
