Hi. This could be SD card problem. One way to check is to insert your memory card to a laptop with a card reader slot and see if computer will detect the card and try if you can copy files to it. If computer was able to detect the card then this could be a slot problem on your camcorder.

Have you tried a different card? Is your card in the unlock position? There is a little plastic slider on the side to lock and unlock it. Make sure it is unlocked. Then after you format, restart camera, go into the settings menu, go to memory, make sure everthing goes to the card and not set to go on the camera memory.

Put in a 4gb SD card, camera says needs to format, I say ok, it say all pics will be lost, I say ok, and pick continue and then again it says needs to be formatted, and repeats this again and again


There are no 4GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Memory card error replaced card but still get error message?


Is it the SD memory card? or the Micro HDD(4GB) you're pertaining to. In case of micro hdd not detected or error, micro hdd socket(CF) assembly has a problem most likely, need to be replaced. SD card; check your SD card's capacity, it can handle only up to 2GB or try to format your card elsewhere and re insert it again in your camcorder, if it will prompt you "FORMAT SD CARD?" you're lucky

When I turn on my Jazz DV 152/ T20 it displays "Read card..." and then nothing happens...I have a 4GB SDHC card by SanDisk...both camera and card are new....is this a faulty camera or am I doing something...


Usually the first thing you need to do with any SD card and Camera is to go into the settings of the your camera and Format the SD card. This has to be done for each memory card you use with that camera. i.e. a SD card formatted on a Panasonic HD camcorder won't work in your Jazz Camcorder. The formatting is different between the two camcorders. New SD cards don't come formatted.
SO try inserting the SD card into your Jazz Cam and rummage through the setting until you find your memory settings. From there find the Format Memory Card function, format the SD Card and you should be good to go.

How to format a SD memory card for samsung


Hi Sir

  • 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.

    I have inserted an SD Card (2GB) into my Alba pocket camcorder and nothing appears to be working on the camcorder. There is a small red light showing underneath the Rec and Zoom in/Out controls but apart...


    Hi!

    Have you inserted a new SD card? If this is already a used one, you can try to reformat it and then test with the Pocket camera again.

    With the issue on the device recognition on your Windows PC, you should make sure that the correct driver is installed.

    Will wait for your reply.
