Internal memory unknown format

I have the same problem as Tanglust.. Do u have the solution for this problem? Thank u. Problem:posted by Tanglust on Jun 30, 2006Report abuse Got this message "internal memory unknown format". Went to Rio's site, 1st suggestion is reformat drive -- not able to because drive is not recognized. 2nd option do a flash. The flash software does not see the rio. I double checked all the drivers, they are all working fine. But description of drive is unknown. I just upgraded to windows xp professional. And it shows as two different storage files. I am soooooooooo confused can you think of anything else I can do ?

Camera will not record, just stops after one second, and photo's dont save. I have tried it with 2 cards that work in other cameras but won't do a thing,

Your internal memory is corrupted. Formatting your internal memory should solve this problem. Remove your memory card. Click on "my computer," click on "removable disk," click on "format." After formatting, reinsert the memory card and your camera should work fine.
tip

File system errors / possible firmware bugs.

Here are some observations.


With the internal memory formatted by the player itself:

1) The player always has multiple malformed root directery entries that don't show up as files in Windows Explorer. Particually, the "Services" folder is slightly malformed. On some systems, the Services folder won't show up in Windows Explorer (like Windows 98).

2) Any memory formatted by the player whether intneral or a microsd card, will be completely missing a partition table.


If the internal memory is formatted by anything else other than the player itself:

1) The player will not be able to write the library database and user settings to the internal memory. The song and artist names will always be "Unknown" and "rebuilding library" every time the player is truned on. The library database and user settings files show up as multiple zero length files in the root directory, one with the same name for each time the player is turned on.

2) The Audible directory will be created and filled with many, many garbage files with garbage names with very big sizes that don't actually take up memory space.

3) Trying to use a microsd card that was formatted by anyhing else results in the player hanging when rebuilding library when it tries to scan the external microsd card. The player has to be shut off buy holding the power switch.

The pictures are in the internal memory? If so you need to purchase a memory card for that camera and transfer the internal memory pictures to the memory card and then you will be able to download them to the computer. Your camera takes a SD or a SDHC memory card make sure it's unlocked and formatted to the camera the instructions for formatting are in your manual
Here is a diagram to makes sure the switch on the SD card is in the unlock position

Sony dcr-sr47 handycam - hdd format error.

Does this camera also take a memory card? If it does, then that would mean the internal memory would be very small...much too small for a long video. If it doesn't, then it's possible you should have formatted the internal memory before an important event.

You need to connect the Rio to a PC and then use the Windows Explorer format disk feature to reformat the Forge's flash memory as a FAT32 partition.
