If you match the format and directory structure on the SD card the camcorder uses technically you could transfer to the SD card.

It was really useless feature, even on my prosumer DV camcorder the still images were crap. The cheapest point and shoot digital camera produced better images. Vice versa even high end cameras of that era did a very poor job with video.

The earliest camcorders that could record to SD card used MPEG2 which is the same thing used for DVD, it has much lower data rate than DV.

Of course that all changed, if I was in the market today I'd be looking at Canon DSLR because it's video capabilities are outstanding.
I happen to own a Nikon D3200 and am very happy with it. I have several 32gb cards which would hold hours of 1080p/30fps video. You eject it, place it in your PC slot and do with it what you want, no problems.

Have you ever done the type of transfer that I'm asking about?

After recording something from tv using my DVR I would then connect my camcorder to the DVR. Then transfer the DVR content to my camcorder. Usually I transfer the DVR content to a tape in my camcorder. My camcorder also can use an SD card to record on. But the transfer process doesn't work when I use an SD card with my camcorder. When using an SD card the DVR content I want to transfer doesn't show up in my camcorder viewing screen like it does when using the tape setting.

It's not going to recognize the video format, assuming it has the feature take a sample recording with the camcorder to the SD card. If it doesn't have that feature this won't work.



Copy the sample to your computer, search for "video codec identifier". This will tell you the format and other information. Import your DVR recording into a video editor and export new video. Minimally you will need to match the video codec, framerate, resolution, the audio codec and the audio settings.



Copy to the card being sure to place in the location the sample video was and it should work.


It's possible under certain circumstances but it's an awful lot of work for some low quality video.
