Camera Drive

When connecting the camera using the USB cable for the first time a box will pop up "installing drivers" which are the USB mass storage device and video camera USB device. A new drive will be listed on your pc, as example: Removable Disk (J;)

You should get about 1:20:00 minutes of constant recording time which will put you around 1.5 GB.
File names for all recorded media start with SUNPxxxx
During charging the blue led will slow flash, when fully charged the blue led will stop flashing. USB takes about 2 hours to charge if the battery is completely empty. If the red led does not blink and you know the battery is low try replacing the USB cable, in many cases this solves the problem.

SD Cards

SD cards range from 2-32 GB. The cards used are the Micro SD/TF/SDHC with storage space 4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB. Tip: TF = TransFlash, SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity. Your local computer store may sell these cards but you will probably find them cheaper online. The higher the class number (2, 4, 6...) the faster the read/write speed. Transcend, Kinston, and SanDisk are popular brands. Class numbers will be circled, see pic below.

Class is the rate in which data flows to and from the card.
Class 2 = 2MB/second
Class 8 = 8MB/second
Class 10 = 10MB/second
This is the minimum data transfer for each card.

When inserting the SD card the brass pins on card will face towards back of camera.

To remove or insert SD card push card IN until you hear a "click" sound.

WebCam Mode

If you dont have the webcam drivers you can download the drivers here. Once the drivers are installed plug the camera into the USB then switch on the power. Push the "M' button once to enter webcam mode, a window will pop up saying "Installing Driver Software" once it has completed you can view the live capture with Programs/SPCA1528/amcap.exe"
