Xm2 Sd Card Capacity

Hi all,

when the XM2 is connected to the PC it is "seen" as a disk drive by the system.

Taking a look at the properties of this "drive" I noted that the capacity shown is much less than the card's.

For example the 8 megs supplied with the cam is reported as a
6,39 MB and a 64 megs as a 59,3 MB.

Has somebody noted the same thing?

What do you think about?

Ciao

It's because of windows...

Just like how when you get a 60GB HDD, it's really only like 56GB..

I agree with you for Windows problems....

If your 60 GB drive is reported as 56 GB there's a 6.6 % loss over capacity.

In the case of the 64 MB card the loss is almost the same (7.3%)
In the case of the 8 MB card the loss is more than 20%.

Somebody told me that Multimedia cards have a different behaviour.

For example a 8MB Multimedia is reported as 7.55 Mb.

Anyway all this, is not a problem.

This place is wonderful to talk everything about camcorders.

My 64 MB SD card makes almost 100 pictures at full resolution, that's enough.
