Panasonic SD Card reading problem

I've just purchased a Panasonic NV GS 400 camcorder which has the capability to save pictures to SD card. When I connect the camcorder to my PC via the USB cable, I can transfer the images without problem (it appears as a removable disk drive in Windows Explorer). However when I try and access the files via an external file reader (by taking the SD card out of the camcorder and inserting it into the SD slot of the card reader), I can see the top-level file structure folders but not the individual files - Explorer gives me an error saying that the files are corrupt or unreadable. When I reinsert the SD card into the camcorder and connect it to the PC, everything is OK. Has anybody else experienced this problem? And is there a way around it? (I want to be able to access the images direct from teh SD card as it saves the hassle of hooking up the camcorder all the time, and I also want to be able to use a HDD MP3 player which has an inbuilt SD slot as a way of backing up my files when I don't have a PC with me). Also will I have the same problem with a Panasonic Digital Camera (such as the FZ5)? Any suggestions? Thx

Yes. The device was not using a standard file system. There usually is no cure. Try this. Format the card in the device and try one more time. Many don't know to perform this step.

Have a 4Gb memory card but when I put it in SD slot to take pictures, it always indicates CARD ERROR even whe the card is unlocked.


From what I see of the specifications for the NV-GS25, it uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, which is electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

When I use different SD cards it says Card Error or Incorrect Operation? Tried to format or delet the files of the card but couldn't. It's a cam recorder nv-gs50


Check with the instruction manual for the camcorder which type and capacity SD cards it will "support" and use only the specified cards. The camera will reject any card with a greater Gb capacity than it's system can support.
The more recent your camera the greater card memory capacity will be supported.

What is the largest size sd card I can use in my nvgs 400? thanks


SD cards max out at 2GB. Make sure you SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards start at 4GB and go up to 32GB, but they will not work in the NV-GS400.

My nv gs200 camcorder not suport any sd card. this problem is comes in few days ago.


That's correct.
Older cameras cannot support the newer SDHC cards.
You camera is most likely limited to a 4 gig card.
Check your camera manaul for specifics.

Panasonic PVGS-50D SD memory card


Check your manual for the max supported SD card size. Most likely it will either support a minimum of 2-4 gb :)

So yes you can get larger cards for your PV GS 50D
