Issue#155: Sony - SONY DSLR-A 100 Unable to use card. Format CF card fails, times out.

  • The CF card can be read perfectly in my PC. Bought a new 4GB CF card to test, same result. When I turn on camera it shows "Unable to use card. Format?" I confirm "Yes", getting the "Formatting card..." screen but progress bar does not show any progress, then just goes blank and fails. Checked the pins inside the card slot and they look fine. I've reset the camera, no help. Any other ideas?

  • Issue#614298: Sony - Sony RX-100 IV memory card issue?

    I use Sandisk (extreme pro) never had issues with them. Took my camera out on a hike (didn't bash the camera against anything (kept it perfectly safe). Took gigabytes worth of photos and videos on my 64GB card, was able to preview photos up until the end of the day when I get a message that read something like:Unable to use memory card. Remove and reinsert and reformat. brought it home and tried inserting it in my computer, computer couldn't even recognize the card. Tried about 5 different software recovery programs nothing. Still unable to reinsert the card succefully in the camera. read in another forum to reformat the card and use a specific recovery program. After reformatting computer recognized the card but nothing on the card. Lost all my photos. why would the camera ask me to reformat a card that previously recorded just fine? The card worked just fine after reformatting. I feel the camera is to blame? Just REALLY bummed I lost a lot of good photos.

  • Issue#1986: Sony - Baffling XQD card error

    I have found some threads similar to my problem but not exactly the same thing. First, some background that may be helpful in troubleshooting, followed by the issue at hand.I rented two Sony 128GB G series XQD cards for a project. I am recording UHD in XAVC-I at 24p and 48p.One of the cards would not format in-camera. I tried deleting the files in the clip folder (card was near full) and inserting into the camera. The camera then proceeded to format. It gave me some quirky issues later on during recording: reaching max clip number when time was still remaining on the card. Footage was still ingested and the card complied with formatting in camera afte that.Last night, I recorded around 30 mins of footage on this card without issue. When turning my camera after a break, I get an "Unknown Media" error message. I turned the camera off and removed the card. My laptop will not recognize the card when trying to mount through the USB card reader. I stil get "Unknown Media" error messages when

  • Issue#10503: Sony - Action Movie Creator software - how to import gps files not still on sd card?

    So i've figured out that when video taken from any of the gps cams by sony are still located on the micro SD card.. the sony action creator software can toggle to select the memory card reader drive letter and it automatically shows which clips have gps information for speed. However.. what of the case where you need to remove these files from the card.. i tried to recreate the structure of the card and then browse to the video but the software doesnt detect the gps info.. i tried to put the gps files in with the videos, but the software doesnt detect the gps info.. How can this be done without leaving the videos on the card forever? Thanks in advance  

  • Issue#16076: Sony - Estimated time of video in HD vs STD with 60GB memory card

    Hi,  I own an HDR-CX380. My batteries are charging so I'm using the power cord., but the "problem" is the same. I'm using a Lexar 60GB SDHC. When in STD the estimate for the lenght of video is 1h57m. When I change to HD to time goes up to 3h55m. I would think that the reverse would be true...HD = 1h57m vs STD = 3h55m. Can you set me straight, or am I wrong!? Thank you

    I want to find out if the new M Series XQD card 64 GB will allow the new Nikon D 5 camera to take 200 continuous shots as the G series card allows.  The new M Series card has a write speed of only 150 MB/s as compared to 350MB/s of the G series. It has been said that the new M Series card is made specifically for the Nikon D 5 camera but I cannot confirm the continous shooting limits of this new card. Thank you

  • Issue#135659: Sony - Wrong card purchased

    I was sold Plus cards not PSN cards and now I have a 2 year subscription to Plus. I was trying to add funds to my wallet to buy a game. I am not wealthy and I have been saving to get this game. I don't even want all the funds back I would be happy with just half. Sony says that there is no way to remove the subscriptions and place the funds into my wallet. Beings that I have a retail and customer services background I know there is something that can be done. I am a reasonable person and all I would like is assistance in solving this issue. I do not want to hear "there is nothing that we can do" again. I have been a loyal PS owner since '95 and I have never had an issue that was not solved quickly and politely before. I have raved about this company and turned many friends and family into PS owners. This issue has disappointed me greatly. This is the first time that Sony has given me the run around and told me that they cannot fix an issue.
