About the memory card

  • A memory card formatted by a computer (Windows OS/Mac OS) does not have guaranteed compatibility with your camcorder.

  • Data read/write speed may vary depending on the combination of the memory card and memory card compliant product you use.

  • Damaged or lost data may occur in the following cases (the data will not be compensated for):

  • If you eject the memory card, or turn off your camcorder while your camcorder is reading or writing image files on the memory card (while the access lamp is lit or flashing)

  • If you use the memory card near magnets or magnetic fields

  • It is recommended that you make a back-up of important data on the hard disk of a computer.

  • Do not attach a label or the like on memory card or memory card adaptor.

  • Do not touch, or allow metallic objects to come into contact with the terminals.

  • Do not bend, drop or apply strong force to the memory card.

  • Do not disassemble or modify the memory card.

  • Do not let the memory card get wet.

  • Keep the memory card out of the reach of small children. There is danger that a child might swallow it.

  • Do not insert anything other than the compliant size of memory card into the memory card slot. Doing so may cause a malfunction.

  • Do not use or keep the memory card in the following locations:

  • Places subject to extremely high temperature, such as a car parked outside in the summer

  • Places under direct sunlight

  • Places with extremely high humidity or subject to corrosive gases

On the memory card adaptor

  • When using memory card with memory card compliant device inserting memory card into memory card adaptor, make sure the memory card is inserted facing in the correct direction. Note that improper use may cause a malfunction.

On image data compatibility

  • Image data files recorded on memory card by your camcorder conform to the “Design rule for Camera File system” universal standard established by the JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association).

  • On your camcorder, you cannot play back photos recorded on other devices (DCR-TRV900 or DSC-D700/D770) that do not conform to the universal standard. (These models are not sold in some regions.)

  • If you cannot use memory cards that have been used with another device, format it with your camcorder. Note that formatting erases all information on the memory card. [Details]

  • You may not be able to play back images with your camcorder:

  • When playing back image data modified on your computer

  • When playing back image data recorded with other devices
