A: You can get it to work by plugging the USB cable into the docking station (Dell PRO2X) rather than plugging directly into the PC.


Q: When I record a video, it doesn’t run smoothly and sometimes it freezes; when I playback it’s frozen and shows “low card speed”.

A: 1) Did you format the card before use? Please format the card in the computer firstly and format in the camera again. Please try several times and reset the camera to try again.

2)Do you have another card to try?

Please avoid any card that doesn't advertise its WRITE speed anywhere. Sellers always advertise its “transfer read speed” instead of its “WRITE speed”.

You can refer to this guy’s comment below to run a thorough write speed test to ensure you're getting your money's worth.


For V50 Elite, you have to use the 64GB U3 card whose WRITE speed is up to 90mb/s.
