Question about Samsung SC-D103 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Buying a new memory card

The store told me that they think that a 2 GB memory stick is the largest that this camera will hold. Is this true? I am truly illiterate when it comes to this camera. I've had it for about 2 years and have only used it twice. I want to be able to take and share videos on my computer and I didn't think the digital memory that came with the camera was very big. So, I'm going to buy a new card. I would like to get the biggest that the camera can use. Could you please inform me?

I am currently having the same problem. The largest stick you can use is 512M. You need to get the Sony Memory Stick adapter with it, it will cost about $15 for it

Hi Stephanie - According to Sony the largest memory stick you can use in your camera is 32 GB with the limitation that a single video clip cannot exceed four GB in size.

You can look at all the info at the Sony website HERE.

I have a Sony Memory Stick Duo Adapter with 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo insert. When I put in my DCR-TRV18 camera and switch it to Memory, I get Memory Stick Error on the screen


On many cameras , the picture format that you can save on memory stick is not the same that you can have by recording on tapes. It should be the same on your handycam.

You can increase memory stick to at least 2GB, that is what sony reccomends, you can test a 4 gb to 16 gb at the shop, if it works , then buy it.

However, the quality of movies grabbed on memory stick, should be far less than the one of movies recorded on tape.

Older VHS-C Palmcorder Memory cards size recognition


Dear Sir,
Yes all noted on your SD/CF card question, well this was a very good question for me simply because I too have had this same problem with my own Sony Digital 340 movie camera.
My camera come with a 128 mb SD card, and like a fool I went last week and bought a 2 g card, and my camera just cannot see it let alone use it, and I now find that camera's before 2004 cannot see any g cards, and like me you are stuck with small max of 128 m because the camera hard-ware is old tec stuff, sad I think my friend, but that's it.
Take care,
from
David

Cant format 16gb sd memory card in canon mv830 camcorder


Hello There
  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Sony CX-12 Camcorder gives message when memory stick inserted


    Hi!
    This is a feature and not a defect of the CX-12 that reminds the user that the memory stick inserted might not be able to record the data from the camera effectively. HD video requires a memory stick with a relatively fast data read/write speed, and the CX-12 recommends not using any other stick that is not Mark 2.
    Fortunately, though, as you have found out, it does not affect the camera's ability to record in non-Mark 2 sticks.
    Hope this helps!

    Memory Card Problems


    According to the samsung website " Samsung camcorders manufactured in 2004 and later can be used with memory sticks up to 1GB. Anything over 1GB is not guaranteed to work. "

    I have the same problem. Video works fine on my 256MB card but not on my 4GB or 8GB cards. It would be nice to know if anyone has success with a particular card >1GB.
