Memory Card Trouble

I bought a 4gb Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo for my camcorder. This has been working perfectly until I decided I needed a little more space. I remember I had an 8gb card of the SAME EXACT TYPE in my PSP. I put that card in my camcorder but it won't work. Please Help! Thankyou.

I couldn't find any info on the net blogs I looked at, however, it's possible that the cpu doesn't recognize a larger than 4 gb card. Try your old 4 gb, if it works, that's probably what's going on unless you have a bad 8 gb card. Not all cards are upwards compatible due to engineering limitations.

WHAT memory stick do i use for a DCR-PC9E


You probably need the old-style memory sticks, as this is a fairly old camera, or an adapter. See this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_Stick
Adaptors are cheap : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Memory-Stick-Pro-Duo-Adapter-/251482939281?pt=UK_Photography_MemoryCardReaders_RL&hash=item3a8d8d1f91 is but one example, there are lots for sale out there or your sony shop may have one.
You may have to check to see if the camera is capable of reading and writing to a card of 4GB size, but as you have already bought it, it's worth a try.
Hope this helps.

Sony memory stick PRO duo 4gb card says memory full when empty


I would suggest formating the memory card through the options on your camera. If you reformat the memory card and you still get the same error then you have a bad card. Just like anything else the cards will break down internally over time.

How to format a sony 4gb memory stick pro duo


Why do you need to format. If using on Sony products its ready to go no need to format. If needing formatting your PC will tell you so and will give you the option to do so by selecting yes to format and will do it for you.... Do not format unless prompet to do so

Misfunctioning 4GB memory stick pro duo


Are you formatting it with your computer or PSP?

  1. Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
  2. Use the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
  3. Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
  4. The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon, of course): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.
It that doesn't work - try formatting it with your computer.

Try using an SD card.

Hi

call your camcorder manufacturer and inquire for a firmware that supports the memory stick. chances are its not compatible with the camcorder since this handles large memory.\

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!
