I don't think the card will need formatting. It looks from the manual as if it will record straight away to a new card. It will format in the camera automatically I think. I have two camcorders and that's what happens with them. I am always carefull though to only delete files whilst the card is in the camera. I did delete the files from one card whilst the card was in my internal card reader an it wouldn't then take any further recordings in the camera.

That is good news. Still interested in what you intend using the finished videos for? More precisely, how to you intend showing them, On your PC or on a TV? Also will you be editing them at all? If so what program will you use?
Please keep us up to date with progress

I can veiw the recorded movies on my PC using my Fuji Film Phinepix software it works well even with Windows 7 and on my TV using my Netgear EVA9000 digital Entertainer this alows me to watch all my stored video files in DVD, Mpeg234(Divx) formats and more via a wifi link. They play well over my samsung 40" LCD TV.
I wanted to use the camera for recording the condition of my Loads on my Lorries Trailer while at work.
It just lets me have a record of there state in case there is a problem, managers cant get out of it!.
The video is good enough for this and its hands free as I can fit it to my Hard Hat.
Will let you know if I get any more problems. Regards Bob

Quite an unusual use for a sports action camcorder but very practical!

So I thought of an externat format! Bob
Glad that you got it going, By the way you could have used the command line (command prompt) to do format with other options than the defaults. See "format /?" for instructions.

As stated early on, it's best to let the device format it itself. However, if the device doesn't offer that option (such as a generic MP4 player that I have) and it doesn't support FAT32, I had to find a way to format it in FAT16.

From a WINDOWS 7 command prompt, you can type "Format /FS:FAT E:" assuming E: is your sdcard.
