If you use a slow-writing card when shooting movies, the movie may not be recorded properly. Also, if you play back a movie on a card with a slow reading speed, the movie may not play back properly.
To check the card’s reading/writing speed, refer to the card manufacturer’s Web site.
To optimize the use of the card, formatting the card with the camera before shooting movies is recommended.
When movies cannot be recorded normally, format the card and try again. If formatting the card does not resolve the problem, refer to the card manufacturer’s Web site.
