What's the Image Database File and why do I need it?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    The Image Database File manages movie files on the Memory Stick PRO Duo media recorded with the camcorder. Without this file, the camcorder cannot record movies (you don't need it for recording still images). Therefore, when using a new Memory Stick PRO Duo media, you should first format the media in the camcorder. Formatting the media in the camcorder will create the Image Database File. You will not need to create another Image Database File unless it becomes damaged or if the Memory Stick Duo media is formatted by a device other than the camcorder. If it's damaged, you'll see an error message, and by touching YES, you can create new image management files and begin to use the camcorder normally.
