Xacti Library won't recognize card
Been trying to set up the Xacti Library on an HD700 using an Iomega Prestige 500gb external hard drive but somewhere along the line there's an incompatibility.
The HDD is FAT32 formatted, self-powered and USB2 compliant. But when I plug it in (using the Iomega cable and the Sanyo adapter) it says "Please insert memory card". Of course, the memory card is already in. Turning the camera off and on again gets me to the <Format Hard Disk?> screen but when I choose Yes, the formatting stops after a few seconds and the camera says No Card.
Have tried swapping cables, SD cards and reformatting the HDD a few times but always the same result. Anyone else seen anything like this?
Thanks for any help.
