Expandable Memory

Pocket DV2 Camcorder expansion slot

The 16MB of onboard SDRAM gives you around 3 mins of video, but you can upgrade the memory (up to 512MB) with additional CompactFlash (CF) cards to give you much more - eg. a 64MB card gives you around 20-30 mins of video! Click here to buy CompactFlash cards separately, or save money when you buy them with the DV2 itself!

    Note on Usage: After installation (and depending on your Operating System version), an icon (see right - circled in red) may appear in the system tray when you plug the camera into your PC. As is the case with many plug-in devices, you may need to properly close the connection to the camera before unplugging it to avoid system problems. Simply right-click on the icon and choose "eject device" (and then click on the "stop" button on the following screen) - the system will then tell you that it's OK to unplug the camera. Easy!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    I have installed a CompactFlash Card into my Pocket DV3 and when I switch on the camera, I get a message saying "Please wait".
    Occasionally there are compatibility problems with CompactFlash memory cards and digital cameras. The following cards have been tested and are compatible with the Pocket DV3:
    • Transcend
    • HP
    • PQI
    • PRETEC
    • Sandisk
    • Toshiba
    • Lexar
    • Dane-Elec (but only the type sold by Firebox.com - other retailers Dane-Elec cards may not be compatible with this product)
    ...and you can of course buy compatible CompactFlash cards from Firebox.com!

    When buying a CompactFlash card, I was asked if I wanted a "Type I" card or "Type II" card. Which type does the Pocket DV3 Camera use?
    The Pocket DV3 uses "Type I" CompactFlash (CF) cards. Type I cards are thinner than Type II cards and so Type II cards physically won't fit into a DV3!

    How much video can I record with extra CompactFlash cards?
    Approximate storage capacities:
    • 32MB CF Card - approx 5-8 mins
    • 64MB CF Card - approx 10-16 mins
    • 128MB CF Card - approx 20-32 mins
    • 256MB CF Card - approx 40-64 mins
    • 512MB CF Card - approx 80-128 mins
    (Unfortunately we can't be more precise as the amount of video you can record depends on what is actually being filmed).

    My Pocket DV3 Camera is getting through batteries quicker than I had anticipated! Do you have any suggestions on how to improve battery life?
    While the batteries are in the camera, a small amount of charge is being used by the Camera, even when the Camera has switched itself into Standby mode. If the batteries run out, or are removed from the Camera, all photographs, video clips and sound recordings will be lost - unless you have a CompactFlash Memory Card installed. We suggest that you use a CompactFlash Card or upload your photographs, video clips and sound recordings to your PC as soon as possible. If you are not using your Camera, and you have no pictures in your Camera, then we suggest you remove the batteries until you next wish to use the Camera. You can turn off the LCD monitor using the switch located above the instruction sticker on the side of the DV3. NB. While the Camera is connected to your PC via the USB cable, the Camera is drawing it's power from the PC.

    Can I use rechargeable batteries in my Pocket DV3 Digital Video Camera?
    The Pocket DV3 Camera needs 1.2-1.5 volt AA batteries. You can use rechargeable batteries that state on the batteries that they supply 1.2-1.5 volts.

    Can I connect my Pocket DV3 Camera into my Video Recorder so I can record onto a VHS Video tape?
    The A/V cable that comes with the Pocket DV3 has a "Composite Video" plug output. If your Video Recorder has a Composite Video socket input, then you can record your Pocket DV3 movies onto a VHS tape. Please read the documentation that came with your Video recorder to see whether it has a Composite Video input socket.

    Can I edit video taken with the DV3 using Adobe Premiere?
    Yes - but you need to convert the file format first. The DV3 compresses video that you shoot using onboard software - this means that you're able to shoot more video than you would otherwise but it also means that some video editors (like Adobe Premiere) can't edit them in the native format. However, you can download a FREE software program called VirtualDub which will let you convert videos shot with the DV3 to uncompressed AVI files. You can then edit them using applications such as (Adobe Premiere) and splice together your movies, add captions, credits, effects, music soundtracks, etc.
