SD/SDHC memory cards have a
mechanical write-protection switch.
Setting the switch prevents accidental

enable writing, move the switch up in the
direction of the terminals. To set write
protection, move the switch down.

Common cautions for memory cards
Damaged data may not be recoverable.
We recommend you make a back-up of
important data separately on the hard disk
of your PC.
Turning the power off or removing a
memory card during an operation such
as formatting, deleting, recording, and
playback may cause data loss.
If you modify the name of a file or folder
stored in the memory card with your PC,
your camcorder may not recognize the
