Copying MV650I tapes to SD card error?

I'm trying to copy some footage off my MV650I and I've formatted 2 different SD cards and tried to copy the footage from the tapes onto the 4GB SD card but it gets about 5 minutes in then suddenly says card error even though I formatted it and everything? What am I doing wrong? I can't use firewire as my PC doesn't have the port for it.

I have taken the sd card out of the camera, downloaded to my computer and now the camera will not read the sd card? Please help

Hi John,

First, make sure you have the photos on the computer. Once you know they are - then you know you have a working copy of them.

The problem you're describing can be the result of MOVING the files - rather than COPYING the files. Moving is the process of moving the original files from the card and putting them on the PC - while copying leaves the original files on the card and creates a copy on the PC. If you MOVED them then you shouldn't expect to see the original files on the card any longer.

If you copied them and the card no longer shows them or if you copied or moved them and the card is no longer visible the card may have been removed before it completed the file move / copy operation. You should only remove a card / usb drive / similar device when a message pops up saying it is safe to do so.

If: 1) there are no files visible, 2) the card can no longer be read or 3) your computer says the card needs to be formatted first - you may need to do that in an attempt to make the card useable again. If you do not have a copy of the files on your PC - try to copy them to another PC before formatting the card. If you can not get copies of the pictures / files on a 2nd PC, the files / pictures on the card are likely lost. You may find utilities than can restore them however (see link below)

Good memory card management includes 1) copying files from memory cards, 2) verifying that they have transferred successfully *and* finally 3) formatting the memory card *in* the camera; *not* the PC. Most cameras offer options to format cards - which is superior to simply deleting files or formatting in a PC. The camera tends to set the card up for its own use - rather than for a PC's use. Formatting the card in the camera can introduce subtle differences that make it worthwhile to do.

Not as much a big deal nowadays - but older devices, cameras, etc. can read / write only to "straight" SD cards. Today, there are SDHC and SDXC types. Make *sure* that you're using the type card your camera expects. Using an SDHC or SDXC card can have unpredictable results when used in devices that expect the older, "straight" SD (no "HC" and no "XC" suffix) type cards. More details about card types can be found linked below:

How to put photos onto SD cards

In Windows, click on Start/Computer. A window opens showing all the drives connected to the computer. Under "removable drives" locate the SD card. Hover your mouse pointer over the SD card icon and it should tell you how much free space is on the card. If necessary, delete some photos or other data to make more space available so you can add the photos you want. If there's already plenty of space, try formatting the SD card in either ex-FAT or NTFS format. Then try copying the photos again. If the SD card does NOT in appear in removeable drives then the SD card may be faulty. Try a different SD card.

I have a hp photo smart 385 and I am trying to download my pictures from my cell phone. I have tried using a micro sd, samsung micro, and a sundisk adapter and all have come back with disk error. help

What type of phone is it? Some (most?) phones will not connect to PC etc. without special software. Did you format the SD card before trying to use it.? Using SD? - format SD first before inserting to phone for photo copying. If pic are stuck on SD card, there are SW which can do file recovery on it. Some free. Last thing to consider, what format are pics? Is format compatible w/ printer?

Sd card, or device error when copying music files

If you are trying to play the file then it will be unmounted as it needs to disconnect from the pc to do that you could try copying them in batches if that doesnt work it may be a USB driver fault in which case i would reccomend reinstalling the G1 driver.

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.

Hi!
You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

Copying pictures from computer to memory card

i have seen this error and i dont know why it does that. you may want to try buying a micro disk setup that fits into a sd adapter that will fit in your camera.

then you can take out the micro disk when full and put it on a usb adapter and plug right into a usb port.

i know this sounds like more work but so far i havent had a lock up on that or error yet. go to tigerdirect.com if you want to see the different adapters for the sd disk and micro disk and usb etc....

maybe this might help
