Does adapter support 64GB CF CARD? (s270 camera)

Hello, I have got Sony hvr s270 camcorder and HVR-MRC1 with 16 GB CF card which makes 1 hour of recording.

I need to buy larger card, 32 GB or 64 GB. Here comes question:


Does camera and HVR-MRC1 adapter support 64 GB card, 400x?

Thanks, best regards.

I found link of adapter MRC1.
Look at accessories, where you can find 64GB CF CARD:

Sony HVR-MRC1 Memory Recording Unit in Shop By Brand Sony at Unique Photo

Do you think that 64gb CF card really works with MRC1 adapter?

Thanks, Primoz Lazar

I use 64 GB Transcend and 64 GB Sandisk CF cards in my MIRC1 mounted in a Z5 and mounted on a Panasonic DVX100B with no problem. Would guess they would work equally well in the 270. B&H carries the cards.

One more question.

If I give CF adapter with SD HC or SD XC card in MRC1 adapter, does it work?
How compatible are SD HC/XC cards with CF Adapters, because SD cards are much more cheaper than CF cards.

Anybody uses adapter like this?

CF adapter:
(SDXC SDHC SD MMC to Type II CF CompactFlash Adapter Connector 64GB Extreme UK | eBay).

Thanks fo reply.

There is an explanation here:

MRC1K & 64GB CF Card

Depending on firmware on the recorder, it DOES support 64GB cards

Hello, one more question.

So I bought 2 64 gb CF cards.
They were working well but suddenly one of them stopped working.

MRC 1 gives an error and can not recognize CF card.

Later I formated second CF card and it stopped working too.
MRC 1 gives an error and says i have to format card. But nothing happens, whatever I do.

Card are working on copmuter with card reader well, just MRC 1 cannot recognize them.

Have you and idea what can be wrong?
Any sollution?

Best regards, thanks.

Which cards are they? Cheap off-brand cards often fail or aren't fast enough. I have had good luck with SanDisk and horrible luck with Kingstons. Transcends were okay. Admittedly I never tried to go above 32GB.

Thanks for reply. I made it.

There was problem formatin 64 gb card with MRC1, it does not support it perfectly.
So I formated card again with EPM.exe program on my comuputer.

Now card works again well in MRC1 but I just cant format it with MRC.
I have to use function ALL CLIPS delete and it is OK.

Thanks anyway.

Best regards PL
