Nokia C6 video camera problem

[ Edited ]

I bought a Nokia C6 recently and I'm facing some problem with video clips I took. The image suddenly freeze and the audio keeps running. I have updated the firmware to the latest and also reset my phone by unplugging battery, but Its still the same. And the worst of it, it becoming more frequent day by day. Now its not just freeze in the middle of the video clip, after I click stop recording it keep on shooting 5 to 10 sec with just blank image.

 

Does any one else facing same problem? Is there any fix for this?

Can any 1 help me?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have the same problem. It looks like it is something with storing the data on the memory card. That is why every day it becomes worse and worse, because you fill more and more the memory card.

 

If you change in settings "Memory in use" to "Phone memory" it will be OK. But this is only temporary solution.

Re: Nokia C6 video camera problem

Hi,

 

I was able to fix this for my phone.

As I said in my previous post, the problem was in writing to memory card. By default, the File System of my memory card was ‘FAT’. For ‘FAT’ file system, the cluster size is very big 32KB. Probably because the phone is trying to allocate a lot of memory in real time, while recording it freezes.

The solution for me was to back up my information on computer and format the Memory card in ‘FAT 32’ file system. ‘FAT 32’ uses smaller clusters and memory allocation is easier.

 

I do not know whether this is the right solution, but it is working.

Same thing over here.

I think Nokia is responsible for another firmware update.

Hi 70_E,

FAT 32 is better file system than FAT and it includes all functionality of FAT. When you copy your data (games, music …) from your computer back to the FAT 32 memory card all the data will be transfer to FAT 32 file system and I do not think that you will have any problems. I did this transformation from more than a week and I have not seen any problems.
