products with caution.

Before using this camera, use the Format function [FORMAT] in the
menu to format the provided removable hard disk. Also, be sure to
format newly-purchased CF cards (removable hard disk/
CompactFlash card) and SD cards with this camera before using
them. This enables stable speeds and operation when accessing the
recording medium.
8 Take care to hold the camera correctly during
recording
Do not cover the area near the lens, stereo microphone and camera
sensor with your finger or any object while recording. Refer to “Index”
of the instruction manual.

The recording media become read-only.
It is not possible to delete or move files contained in the recording
medium, format the recording medium and perform check disks
(error checks). To perform such operations, use a commercially
available CF/SD Card Reader/Writer (CF+ Type II compatible).
To maintain high performance of a recording medium, it is
recommended to perform check disks (error checks) using PC on
a regular basis. Use a commercially available CF/SD Card
Reader/Writer (CF+ Type II compatible) to connect to PC, and then
perform the check disk on the recording medium using the same
procedure as a regular local disk (C drive). Refer to the instruction
manual of your PC for check disks.
When you delete the files in the [EXTMOV] folder, perform on the
PC by using commercially available CF/SD Card Reader/Writer
(CF+ Type II compatible) or format a recording medium on the
camera.
8 Reset the camera if it does not operate correctly
This camera uses a microcomputer. Factors such as background
noise and interference can prevent it from operating correctly. If the
camera does not operate correctly, reset the camera. Refer to
“Troubleshooting” of the instruction manual.
8 Bring your camera together with the removable hard
disk
When requesting repairs for breakdowns by your dealer or JVC
service center, be sure to bring your camera together with the
