Micro SD card works for XAVC-S in Sony FDR x1000v but not HDR AZ1 ?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have two Sony action cams:

 

FDR x1000v

HDR AZ1 (firmware 1.02)

 

My Sandisk Extreme Plus 32GB Micro SD card (Class 10 U3) works perfectly well for XAVC-s in my Sony FDR x1000v cam but does not get properly recognized for XAVC-s in my HDR AZ1 cam. I can format the card in the camera but then when I change from MP4 to XAVC-s it shows this message in PlayMemories Home:

 

"Cannot record in the current setting. Change to an SDXC memory card (class 10 or higher) or a micro SDXC memory card (class 10 or higher) compatible with your camera, or change the movie format."

 

I optimistically ignored this msg and tried recording but when I click the Record button it does not work (and the same message appears again).

 

The same card works perfectly for MP4 in both cams and works perfectly for XAVC-s in my FDR x1000v camera. The HDR AZ1 is running the latest firmware.

 

The only thing I can think is that to use XAVC-s in the HDR AZ1 it really needs to be a SDXC (64GB or greater) rather than SDHC. Can anyone confirm this before I fork out on a 64GB card?

 

Thanks!

Oh, I have just seen this answer to another post:

 

"The x1000 had a firmware upgrade to allow high speed SDHC cards to work with XAVC S, but that was not the case with the AZ1."

 

So looks like I do indeed need to get another card...  :-(

Post-edit: I managed to get XAVC-s working on my SDHC card after reformatting it to ex-FAT format.

Only if the card is fast enough, which is rarely the case for SDHC cards.
