    Where did you buy this card? There's recently been a bunch of bad cards coming from Hong Kong. Most are sold on ebay at bargain prices directly from Hong Kong. They're actually old 512MB (or less) cards that have been overclocked to show up as 2GB (or more). It quickly becomes apparent that something is wrong when you try to record anything above the unknown actual size of the card.

    I've personally bought one of these cards. The seller soon became non-existent. The card is usable, but I primarily limit its use only for photos, knowing that saving video on it would soon exceed its actual capacity.

As mentioned by t00nz, fake memory cards are flooding in. It is big business (especially on Ebay) and lots of people are buying fake or refurbished memory without even knowing it. If you bought from Ebay, make sure you buy from someone who has great feedback and it comes in the sealed retail package. This won't guarantee it will be legit, but it sure helps.

You also want to test your memory are soon as you get it with a memory card reader and software on your PC (such as SiSoft Sandra). You should also see if you can read/write to the entire memory card by moving large amounts of data to it. It sounds like you bought a 512MB memory instead of a 2GB one.

Here is a great link to see which memories look bad before your purchase. http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/Fake_Memory_Cards

Good luck.

Camera says card full


Your memory could be bad - try another chip and see what happens. If it does the same with that then the camera itself is at fault.

Either add additional memory through minisd card or delete music, texts, games, pictures, etc... Failing that take it to providers store and see if it is manufacturing issues.

Recording limited by error-lg viewty


Hmmm. Yes your 2GBmemory card is more than enough to do the job, but.. your phone is freezing. Well, just how many pictures and video files do you already have saved on that memory, remember the more files you store, the slower the phone is going to respond....My recomendation is to remove the old files, transfer to your computer if you dont really need them on your phone, and defenetly want to turn your phone off and take your battery out for at least 5 mins. this will refresh your phone and keep it working in optimal condition.. Good luck and enjoy the Viewty

Memory card space


usually it will go back and show the time once you actually start recording. If that is not the case then you should format the storage folder on the device to ensure it was properly deleted.

Memory


Ok, here's the deal...

The '9 hours' of recording time is a bench mark only... The unit only comes with 64 MB of internal memory, and when you are recording in the highest resolution, (Mpeg4) mode, then it eats up the available space really fast. Keep in mind, that in high resolution video mode, as opposed to standard, you will eat up at least 64 in about 7 minutes, not 5.

I dropped a 512 MB SD card in the camcorder, and on high resolution video, you might get away with 45 minutes to and hour. The camcorder records in 640 by 480 resolution, which isn't bad, but certainly isn't in DVD quality either...

So, pick youself up a 2 GB SD card, and you will certainly get up to at least 5 hours in standard mode. Rule of thumb, 400 MB per hour in standard mode. But, if you also go into the camera mode and take high resolution photos, that will also eat up your available storage ability...

Any other questions, just let me know...
