Question about Canon ZR800 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Memory card question

I just bought a canon camcorder ZR950. I am getting a message that I believe means there is no memory card in place, but I can't find that in my manual.  The message is a blinking red kind of trapezoid with a line through it. I do not have a memory card to use right now and have been able to record video.  I just don't want to be ignoring something important.

I think its just a warning message but it shouldn't stop you from recording to tape.

If you can pick one up and install it in the camera, that will get rid of it.

It should take SD cards. They can be anywhere from 64mb to 2 gig in size. You should use the high speed cards as well such as a San Disk Ulra II. Standard cards may cause quality issues.

I put a new 4gb sandisk hc memory card into my jvc gr d270u video cam and i get card error message with or without the card unlocked.i can not go to the format menu with the card in place.


Hardware of this camcorder supports up to 2GB memory card so 4GB is more than its capacity and causing error.
Try 1GB or 2GB memory card in camcorder.
Thanks.

Canon Legria HF200 SDHC Initialization problem


This totally sucks. I have a similar issue with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When trying to initialize the card, its fails and says "Process terminated with error." It also says "check the memory card" when I first put it in. Write-protect is off. My other SanDisk class 4 SDHC card seems to work ok.
I could have sworn it worked before and I was able to transfer videos to my Mac on 10.6, but I can't remember for sure if I was using the SDXC card or just the built-in memory. Very frustrating.

I recorded a MiniDV with a HD camera the Canon HV30 to be specific. When trying to play it back on my Canon zr950 i get an error message. Will my tape only playback on an HD video camera? What do I do?


Canon ZR950 is an older Standard Definition camera that records in DV format, and does not recognize HDV format recorded by HV30.

HV30 can be switched to DV format, which should be playable on ZR950.

Canon ZR950 video transfer problem


Greetings reubnick,

Unfortunately, the Canon Z950 only offers transfer to your pc via firewire (Firewire/IEEE 1394 DV Terminal). Therefore your computer would need to have a firewire port.

One other option is to utilize a standalone system to plug your camera in to transfer video. Here an example of one unit: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8470923&productCategoryId=abcat0504007&type=product&tab=1&id=1184768699303#productdetail

I hope this helps!
