I hope this is not a repost. I searched "freeze" and "lockup" with no results in this forum.

A few weeks ago, I was recording video clips with my HD700. However, I ran into a problem like this:
  1. Start recording a video clip[/*]
  2. Record normally - doesn't matter how long[/*]
  3. Push the record button to stop[/*]
  4. Wait for video to write to SD card (red "working" light on)
  5. Camera locks up.[/*]
When the camera locks up, none of the buttons work. I can't even turn it off. I have to pull out the battery to shut off the system. The red "working" light stays on the whole time. When this happened the first time, it fried my A-Data 8GB SDHC card. I could not get my PC to read or write my card after this issue. I'm now afraid to use my other SD cards because of this.

Do I just have a defective unit? This problem happens intermittently. I can't reproduce it at will. This is disappointing because I don't really want to deal with Sanyo warranty services.

Anyone have this problem before?

Hmm, actually sounds like it might've been the SD card going bad if you had the problem intermittently before the card fried.A lot of SD cards have had high failure rates; check out the reviews on Newegg.com. Did you ever have this happen with any of your other cards? If not I'd pickup a cheap 256 meg card for like $10 - $15 dollars and test with it.

**EDIT - nevermind. Just re-read your post and realized the card fried when you first had it happen. My bad.
