    BDP5200/12 always wants to format SD Card

    Hi,

    my BDP5200/12 (FW: 1.35) frequently tells me to format the SD card, even though it has been sitting in its slot for a long time.

    I think it happens if I push the eject button too quickly after turning it on (before it shows the home menu). At least it hasn't happened so far when I pay attention and force myself to wait for a few seconds.

    Could it be a bug in the FW?

    I would say normal behaviour. You need to give the device some time. As you already say you do it quite fast...

    Normal? I don't think this is normal for living room equipment from one of the world's leading manufacturers.

    And I share this player with my kids. Tell them to be patient when they hold their new Harry Potter, Star Wars, you name it DVD in their hands.

    If clicking a button too quickly breaks the device, they (that is Philips, not my kids) can put a delay loop in the firmware. Shouldn't be much more difficult than that.

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and also have a BDP5200. The only time i remember being prompted to format the SD card, I was in NetTV. Have you tried using another SD card?

    Thanks for the hint.

    I had tried a few different cards before, all with the same result.

    Now I noticed that they are all Class 2, i.e. rather slowish. Yesterday I took a fast class 6 card from my DSLR camera and put it under stress.

    So far it hasn't asked me to format the card (except of course right after I inserted it).

    Apparently the speed of the card is the problem. And that the BDP doesn't seem to wait for slow ones.

    you're welcome. I'm also using a Class 6 SD Card. I read somewhere that only Class 6 and above is supported.

    Well, not quite. The user's manual says that you need a 4GB Class 6 SDHC card if you want to rent videos from online shops (which I haven't tried yet). Otherwise it speaks only of SD card with 1 GB free space.

    But anyway, class 6 SD cards don't cost a fortune any more. The player is still worth its price plus 6 Euros for a new SD card.
