Canon HG20/HG21: hard drive off to exchange /; pictures inside?
Frage von martin_martin: Januar 2010
someone has already screwed his HG20/HG21 to see, which is hard drive in it? or knows someone or has a few pictures from inside the Camera?
To avoid problems with the 3000 m altitude, it would be obvious, turn off the hard drive. Furthermore, would the battery-run double, and possibly reduce the noise in the micro.
What I've discovered: FAT32 file system; The hard drive can be known not to turn off via the menu. In the device manager of WinXP a "Canon HG21 USB Device" (; or "Canon VIXIA HG21 USB Device") is displayed. [as far as I know, Canon does not build festplatten and apparently only changes the string] It would be natural to just the electricity supply to the hard drive to interrupt, if desired. In view of the sector, I have "DRYOSV2" discovered. Perhaps one must be hard drive connected in order to boot the camera. But it is not looked after firmware. But the next could be synonymous by the end of the plate are .... It would be interesting synonymous, sharing the plate against the SSD and HD-data cloning a test.
Antwort von Applelunatic:
That should work without problems! Are you sure that it is FAT32? The file system does not allow files greater than 4GB, it would not be practical when shooting long, or is it split?
Antwort von deti:
In HG20/21 is a Toshiba 1.8 "IDE hard drive with ZIF connector installed. It can be readily exchanged for any other hard drive. This one does not have the camera completely apart, but only open sideways. On the hard drive is not a firmware. After the installation of a new plate that can be easily initialized via the setup menu. SSD with a 1.8 inch IDE connector is hardly available on the market - all the new SSDs have a SATA port.
