      I just went to a JVC HZ-HD30 hard drive type camera to record
      several hours of video without taking a break. More than the 1 hour
      tapes. This camera is basically useless. See,,,,, its formatted in
      Fat32. So guess what? Right, the files cant be anything over 19mins in
      length or about 4gb. You have to drop them in the editing software and
      they don’t sync up. There is a glitch. Fortunately I had a separate
      sound recording device that saved my arse and I was able to layer in a
      splice right under the sound that dropped out when the “new” file was
      created.

      So what the hell is it good for? And why would any
      manufacturer make a camera like this? Are all hard drive cameras
      formatted in fat32? No, it cant be reformatted in NTFS either by camera or by computer.

      19 minute files, are you kidding me?

      Anyone?

      A buddy of mine had one of those too and ended up taking it back.

      I am glad this topic was brought up because I was considering one for a backup and now I know to look elsewhere. Thanks everyone.
