Couple of months ago while recording on the HPX-500 I received a warning on the card that was recording and it then stopped. It happened so quick I don't remember what the warning was, jut that it jumped to the next card and I could then keep recording. After offloading the card, 32GB card, I tried reformatting and received a P2 Micron error and the card will not reformat.

Yesterday I was recording and the same thing happened to another 32 GB card. I just offloaded the card and don't want to try to reformat it yet. Is it possible that these cards have reached their end? Bought in 2006 or 2007...

Is there somewhere I can send the cards for evaluation?

If you have a P2 Card reader and P2 Formatter software, it will tell you the status of the card.

Thanks Steve,

I ran P2 CMS on the card I had not tried to format. I formatted it through the software and now it is recording again. The other card that I tried formatting through the reader and camera and received the P2 Micon Error will not be recognized by the P2 CMS. So I may be out of luck on that card. I now get an error message from P2 CMS stating "An error occurred while operating I/O control on P2-card." Not sure if there is a place to send it.

Thanks again for mentioning the software.
