The clip's proxy data is written to the USB
flash drive at the same time that the clip is
recorded to the disc.
1) After the unit is powered on. some time is required for
the memory symbol to appear. However, if the
connected USB flash drive has enough free memory
and recording is enabled, then recording of proxy data
to the USB flash drive begins as soon as recording
starts, even if the memory symbol has not yet
appeared. The proxy data is the same data as the proxy
data for clips that are recorded to the disc.
Notes
• If you start recording immediately after powering the
unit on, and then stop recording after only a short time,
the recording operation does not end until the unit has
recognized the USB flash drive and recorded the proxy
data to it. Note that if you enable this function and start
recording without connecting a USB flash drive,
recording will take longer because the unit will require
more time to recognize that no flash drive is connected.
• The message "USB MEMORY INHIBIT!" or "USB
M. INHI" appears if you connect and attempt to access
a write protected USB flash drive, In this case, remove
the USB flash drive, set it to enable recording, and
connect it again.
• The message "MEM REC NG!" appears if you start
recording without a USB flash drive connected. After
recording stops, connect a USB flash drive, refer to
"To copy the proxy data of a clip on a disc to a USB
flash drive", and copy the proxy data that could not be
written to the USB flash drive during recording.
• It is not possible to record proxy data to a USB flash
drive while the Clip Continuous Rec function is
enabled. If you attempt to do so, the message "MEM
REC NG!" appears and the data is not recorded. To
record the proxy data, stop recording and copy the data
to the USB flash drive as explained below in "To copy
the proxy data of a clip on a disc to a USB flash drive",
and then resume shooting.
• Never disconnect the battery pack or power cord while
recording to a USB flash drive (while the ACCESS
indicator of this unit is lit). If you do so, recording
processing will not end normally, and the clip proxy
data that was recorded to the USB flash drive before
the interruption will be lost.
• The message "MEM REC NG!" appears if the USB
flash drive runs out of memory during recording (while
the ACCESS indicator of this unit is lit), and the clip
proxy data that was being recorded immediately before
the message appeared is lost. If this occurs, exchange
the USB flash drive, refer to "To copy the proxy data
of a clip on a disc to a USB flash drive", and copy the
proxy data that could not be recorded.
• It is not possible to record proxy data to a USB flash
drive only.
