Thread: Samsung VPX220l SD card issues

    Default Samsung VPX220l SD card issues

    Hi I've just obtained a Samsung VPX220l SD camcorder (not the most wizz bang piece of kit but its compact and handy for catching those skiing crashes )

    It has 2Gb of internal memory which is enough, but also supports SD cards up to 2Gb (apparently)

    I've got a variety of SD cards (Panasonic and Kingston brand) and have just bought some 1 and 2Gb cards, these are not recognised but do work perfectly in my ancient Canon digi cam.

    I've tried reformatting them both as FAT and FAT32 but this doesnt seem to help.

    Has anyone had any similar experiences ?? Or better still a solution

    Cheers
    Rosco

    Those cameras are great for catching near death expiriences and I must get one soon.

    As for the cards - I am not sure but could it be a speed problem ? SOme may be too slow ?

    Thanks I was thinking it might be something to do with SD speed grades. It would make sense if the card cant handle being written to at high speed/
    However it works with the older cards I have (standards eh!)m and the cheapo Tesco card out of my Dads camera

    The newer cards I have seem to be the problem. Had a chat with one of my old work colleages today and they recommended trying mmc cards.

    But yeah I recomend it as a sports camera great for mountain biking and great for any trekking type activities as its mobile phone size.
    Better quality and more versatile than either the Oregon or GoPro cameras.

    Wouldnt pay retail / new price for one though !!
