This camcorder will use SD cards. However it will not use SDHC cards such as your 16GB Lexar card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
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!
did you already formated your memort stick? try to remove your memory card from your camcorder and insert it again. look for the settings on your camcorder. it might cause the problem. hope that helps!
You do need a firewire cable (which is normally provided with the camera) and a firewire port in your computer in order to get images off the tape which you have recorded onto. The card however can be accessed via USB. The card can store video as well as pictures although if it is the card that you bought the camera with it probably has very low memory.
If I were you I would take one of these two solutions
Buy a firewire cable and a firewire PSI card for your computer. Use an editing software eg. Pinnacle or Windows movie maker to import video files from camera.
On the camera above the power switch (camera, OFF, play), there will be a switch which at present is down indicating to video. Switch it up to card. This will then record video to your card which you can load to your computer same as the pictures. You might need to buy a new SD card (located in compartment -Multi Media Card- next to lcd screen.) these can be quite cheap and 1 GB can hold more than an hour of footage.
