The default is to start a new clip every time you press the stop button, but in settings you might be able to tell the camera to continue with the same clip provided you press record again with a set time. Not sure why you want to do this though - it's much easier to edit using small clips than very large ones.

It sounds as though it may have become overheated. If it continues to show this problem and the camera is not too warm when used then it may have been damaged by the heat. Temps in cars can get very hot. It could also be a physical damage issue if the camera was not in a case and slide around unprotected.

Plug in a 3.5mm stereo "pin" plug, into the external microphone input. This will open the internal microphone circuitry and allow for silent recording.

I experienced the same thing. The compact power adapter is simply the power cord used also to recharge the camcorder. Plug it into the wall at the same time as you have the USB plugged into the computer and it should be able to download.

Good Evening Pat
You will be fine, its just a standard warning that comes up when you dont use the same brand memory card.
If the camera is able to record and upload the video to your computer or TV then you should have no problems at all.
I hope you enjoy the wedding.
