I have a JVC Everio camcorder with an 80gb hdd with FAT32 file system. I mainly film live events such as sports and music events which can run for hours. I was thinking of formatting the hard drive so I would be able to utilize the larger file sizes offered by other file systems, as I regularly go over 4GB. So I have a couple of questions regarding this.
1 Which file system would you recommend? (I was thinking exfat, I only really copy the files over to my windows 8 PC so compatibility with other OS' is not an issue)
2 Which AUS should I use when formatting?
3 I have tried to format the disk but it is write protected, so how can I remove this?
4 Is any of this a good idea? Is there any chance that I could harm the disc by doing these things or is there a way in which it could cause problems for the camcorder to write to the disk, or any other problems which you think may occur.
