    The camcorder insists that my 2gb SD card is write protected, even though I have the latch set to "unlock" mode. I am able to copy, play and erase files on the SD card via my computer. The camcorder refuses to format the card, still says it is write protected!

    To be sure I wasn't in error, I locked the card and tried to copy a file to it, via my computer. Wouldn't work, because the card was write protected. Then I unlocked the card again, and was able to copy to it. Placed the unlocked card back into the camcorder...still refuses to let me record, claiming it is still locked!

    I can, however use my 8gb card, after first formatting it via my camcorder. Does chop the memory in half...but looks like the camcorder handles up to 4gb, while it claims to do only 2!

    So, expect others to have the same problem...there does seem to be a glitch in the camera, where for some reason it will not recognize a memory card being writeable. Have no idea why, but for some the answer may simply be to try another SD card, up to 4GB capacity. Which BTW, will give you twice as much recording time as Aiptek's camcorder claims to have.

First check the memory card to see if the lock tab is in the UNLOCK position. On the top left of the memory card is a slide the moves up and down. The slide should be in the up position for it to be unlocked. A locked memory card could cause the camera to read a CARD PROTECT error message.
If you still receive an error message, verify that you are inserting the card correctly so that the spring locks in as you fully insert it. When performed correctly an Icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of the LCD screen. Also try inserting the card while the camera is on.
The memory card may also need to be formatted through the camera’s settings-- Note: Formatting will delete all files, so be sure to transfer any important files to your computer before doing so
To Format: Insert the memory card into the camera and press the mode button to get to the mode screen. Enter into Tools/SETTINGS and find FORMAT. Once you select format you will receive a YES or NO option. Select YES and you will see a FORMATTING message. Once the formatting is complete, see if the camera reads the card and functions properly

    The camera can support an 8 Gigabyte SDHC up to Class 4 which will provide up to 4 hours of HD video. It may support up to a 32GB card, once they are made available by the major brands. We suggest using the SD Card brands Dane Elec. or San Disk. Mini SD and/or adaptor cards are not compatible

It keeps saying card protected everytime I try to record. I downloaded my videos on my computer and tried to earase the card and it keeps saying card protected.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I need help with my memory, it says full memory but theres no memory card.

That's why ist says so. According to the manual, there is an internal memory. (I don't seem to be able to put pictures there.) Anyway, since the onboard memory does not seem to exist, the camera has no place to write the image to. Hence, it displays the message "memory full", which is easiest. 

Try using an SD Card.

When you say "turns itself off" do you mean the camera actually shuts off or does it just stop recording. If it just stops recording, it's because 10 seconds of video is all that will fit on the internal memory. If this is the case you just need to get a memory card for the camera.

If it's actually shutting off the power, there may be a problem with the camera. You could try posting about this problem at

There are people there with a good amount of experience with these cameras.

The camera should show up in Windows as a removable drive (like any USB thumb drive). From there all you should need to do is copy your mp3 files to the mp3 folder on the SD card in the camera (you will need to use a memory card as the internal memory is fairly small).

Make sure the file names are not very long or there may be problems getting them to show up in the camera's mp3 player.

This camera records on SD memory cards. I'm not sure what the maximum capacity is but a 1GB card should work.

Seems like its time to flush the contents of the memory card of camcorder to a computer.
There's a limited amount of memory in every memory card. After constant recording, the memory  gets full and the recorded stuff needs to be either deleted or flushed (uploaded to a computer) to make room for newly recorded stuff.

Unless you have a blank memory card, your problem should be solved by the above mentioned idea.
