Re: Formatting memory card.

Formatting erases all the data recorded on the SD Memory Card. If an SD Memory Card becomes unreadable, formatting may make it reusable.

Formatting sd memory card have a polaroid dvg-720E HD camcorder. Just got the sd card to try it out but dont know how to format it. Can u help please? Fiona


One easy way to do it is to take out your memory card and put it on a laptop or computer using the card reader and then format it. You go to your desktop when the card has been recognized then open my computer right click on the card icon then you click on format. Please tell me if this was helpful.

Asking for formating memory card, after formating says problem with memory card


Usually the process of formatting memory cards wipes off all information on a memory card. If after formatting the cards shows problem with memory card then the memory card has bad sectors which make the card no longer usable.
Bad sectors in a memory card are usually caused by poor storage of information and viruses. Best solution will be to replace the card but if not connect the card to a PC and defragment this will seperate the bad sectors from the good ones. Although you will not have full use of the card size.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

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.

My insignia hddv hdmi camcorder says memory full, even though everything we've shot was either downloaded or erased (too easily by my son, by the way). Is it possible the stuff is in a recycling can...


Is it the camera memory or the SD memory? Look on the menu screen on the bottom right. If the camera is not recognizing your SD card, it is saving to the camera memory which is very small and may give you 20 secs of video. It is supposed to automatically recognize your SD card but may not be doing that at all. If it doesn't do it automatically, I have found no way to get it to do it. The menu contains no option for formatting an SD card and it can't if it cannot recognize it anyway. I have tried reformatting the SD card in another camera. It may be the SD card size is too small and it won't recognize. I don't know. I have one and can't get it to work (recognize either one of two SD cards that I already had) and plan on taking it back to Best Buy to see if they have a solution before I buy new SD card. Anyway if you see "int" in the lower right that means it is recording to the internal memory and not your SD card.

Memory is full


The instruction manual should have instructions on how to set it to use the SD or DVD. I'll have to find myself a copy and figure it out for you. if you have the manual on a CD or on your computer

Formatting a memory card


If you have a SD card reader on your computer, you can plug it in there. Click Start, My computer, then the drive the card is connected to (on my system it's the F:\ drive). Right click on the drive and select Format. You can pick either FAT or FAT32 (FAT32 should be the default). Either one will work. It should only take a few short seconds. Once done, your card is formated.

Need to delete memory


You need to remove the memory card from the camcorder and place it into a pc or photo shops computer. This will allow you to view the saved items on the memory card. You can then save these to disc and delete the contents on the card.

SD card


you can try some data recovery software. You can see
recover files from sd card
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use sd card recovery software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

Formatting SD Card to shoot stills


Hello 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.
