I recently bought the above card and according to the Camcorder manufacturer (Samsung; model HMX-H200) I formatted the card through the camcorder. However this caused the card not to be recognised by my PC (new HP model; Win7 64-bit) (whether I insert it in the SD card reader or connect the camcorder via USB). My PC is asking to format the card in order to be able to recognise it. Could you please advise if I can restore the card to its original default settings?
Also what should the following be:
-file system - FAT32, NTFS, etc.?
-allocation unit size - 16kb, 32kb, or “default allocation size”, etc.?
Is it correct that a 32GB card formatted with FAT32 cannot use more than 4GB?
I shall be grateful if you could please respond asap.
Thank you for your kind co-operation.
EDIT: is there a way to transfer the videos I have made to my PC (I can still watch them on the camera, but fear they will be deleted once I format the card)? My problem is that the card is recognised neither by built in laptop card reader, separate card reader or when I connect the camcorder via USB!
