My Sony vixia hfs100 Cannot record in MXP/FXP?

I have a SANDDISK EXTREME PRO SD card that can record up to 100MBPS but when I put inside of my camcorder. It will not record.

Update:

I have a SANDDISK EXTREME PRO SD card that can record up to 100MBPS but when I put inside of my camcorder. It will not record in MXP/FXP Mode. It can record in any other mode but FXP TAKES 17MBPS & MXP TAKES 24MBPS. The card can record up to 100MBPS. Am I misising something here?

P.S.: If you read this before I updated please forgive me as I did not proof read my question. Thank You.

    Nothing wrong with the camcorder - You're using the wrong flash memory card.

    Suggestion: Download and read the manual:

    http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/9/0300001969/02/hfs10-...

    Page 41 shows which cards and speeds are supported. This means if using something different than what's documented works, then great - but if it does not, then, bummer.

    Specifically... Your SanDisk ExtremePro microSD card is Class 3 (Note the 3 in the U). Recording @ MXP or FXP requires Class 4 or higher. "When you buy a new memory card, look for the Speed Class logo on the package."

    It is possible that if you use a Class 4 micro card in an SD adapter, that will work just fine... But Class 3 speed, regardless of the speed you called out, is not supported...

      adapter clearly states it on the card itself. I understand I am using a class 3. I am going to try and class for I have noticed alot better quality and resolution with the class 3 vs a normal SD card.

    All of your answers are in the manual.

    To be clear, you're saying you can write to the card in the other 3 recording modes? My guess would be the card adapter is causing the problem. You may get it to work by using a different one, but using micro SD cards in cameras / camcorders is very unreliable.

      I didn't say anything about it being the wrong adapter - ALL adapters can be a problem! Your card is UHS class 3 - not the same as class 3!

    That camcorder only supports SDHC cards. O assume you are using an SDXC card which the camera won't recognize.

    Um okay, why are you telling us. This site is for asking questions. If you want to post random crap and erroneously place a question mark at the end then go to Facebook or Twitter.
