Sanyo xacti hd 800 sdhc card issues

The specs say that this camcorder supports up to 32 GB sdhc. I have tried two different Sandisk 16 GB Video hd sdhc cards. I'ver run both regular "format" and "full format" on these cards numerous times. This was done per manual instructions. The camcorder "freezes" i.e. locks up on playback and I get "system error" message frequently. At this point I must remove the battery and then reinstall it to unlock the camcorder. I tried a 2 GB sd card and the camcorder works perfectly! My suspicion is that this camera supports only 8 GB as did the HD 700 model. Any thoughts?

How can I find out if my SD card reader would take SDHC?


According to the specs it takes MMC and SD cards, so I would say it does not take SDHC cards. If it does, the marketing department would certainly have said so.

SDHC cards are electronically different and will only work in devices specifically designed for them. Older devices designed to work only with SD cards will not work with SDHC cards, no matter how much the firmware is updated.

I lost the CD that came with my camera. So i didn't download any program for my Xacti Sanyo Dual Camera. When I upload my videos , they are all choppy. What am I supposed to download to solve this problem?


Are you playing back the videos from the hard drive after downloading or from the flash card? If you're transferring the videos using a card reader to the PC's hard drive, and playing it from there,
the PC may just not be fast enough to decode the video without dropping frames. You might try a different program as the player because some tend to be more forgiving of system requirements.

Card error with 16 or 32 GB SDHC card


The solution according to JVC (and it did work), is only buy card from Sandisk. Toshiba and Panasonic.

Canon FS200 won't fully initialize 16 GB SDHC card


I have the same problem with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When I try to initialize the card, its fails and says Process Terminated. The write-protect is off. The older class 4 SDHC card I've tried seems to work ok, which is a SanDisk 4Gb.

Sanyo XACTI HD1 Camera-No Pictures / Videos captured.


I have intermittent problems of this type too. Occasionally I get a blank screen in the display mode.

Does the red light on the back of your camera flash while the screen is dark? Mine does.

It is beginning to bug me a lot. It may be because I got my camera wet in the past (and hence I have broken my camera), but I doubt that would result in a partial failure.

I think that the Xacti HD1/HD2 has issues a bit like a blue screen of death on an old Windows computer when faced with storage problems.

I.e. it works but crashes sometimes when it cannot store to its storage medium.

These things work for me
1) Turning the power on and off via the button underneath the screen.
2) Removing and re-inserting the SD card.
3) Turning the power on and off by removing the battery.
4) Using a different (and faster?) SD card.
I am still using my HD2, but I am finding that I must attempt solutions 1-3 about once a day.

It could be because the card I have been using recently is not fast enough. The HD2 accepts both SD and SDHC cards. My SDHC card (which is newer) seems to result in fewer problems, either because the SDHC format is more suited to the Xacti HD2 or becaues the SDHC card I have is faster that then SD card I have. I suspect problems with the speed of the card. I am using cheap SD cards.

Not saving recorded material on card


Could it be that your SD card is not fast enough? There are a lot of different flavours of SD card. Particularly, some SD cards are faster than others.

There are two main types of SD card: the original SD cards and the newer SDHC cards. The latter look the same, and the Xacti HD2 (and I guess the HD1) takes both.

The former, SD cards, have speed ratings that are given in terms of how many times faster they are than floppy disks.
Rating Speed (MB/s)
6x 0.9
32x 4.8
40x 6.0
66x 10.0
100x 15.0
133x 20.0
150x 22.5
200x 30.0

SDHC cards have a "class" rating where
  • Class 2: 2 MB/s
  • Class 4: 4 MB/s
  • Class 6: 6 MB/s

    I find that my "class 6" SDHC card has few problems. This corresponds to a "40x" SD card.

    Your card is pretty small at 256 MB. These days cards are much larger. Could it be that you are using an old card that you bought for a previous camera? If so, perhaps the speed of the card is only 32x (i.e. 32 times faster than a floppy) or less. Perhaps the card is too slow?

    Just an idea.
