Initializing the Memory Card

Initialize new memory cards when you use 
them for the first time. You may also 
choose to initialize a memory card to 
erase all the files in contains. The regular 
initialization option [INITIALIZE] will clear 
the file allocation table but will not 
physically erase the stored data. If you 
need to completely erase all the data, 
select instead the complete initialization 
option [COMPL.INIT.].

IMPORTANT

  Initializing the memory card will erase all still 
images, even the protected ones. The original 
still images cannot be recovered.
  When you feel the time it takes to record on or 
read from the memory card has become too 
long, we recommend you select the complete 
initialization.
  The complete initialization may take a few 
minutes, depending on the capacity of the 
memory card.

  Initialize all memory cards before using them 
with this camcorder.

*

Press (

) to cancel the complete 

initialization while it is in progress. All the 
image files will be erased and the memory 
card can be used without any problem.
