Video Camcorder question

Hi guys,

Bought a JVC Everio gz-hm440 camcorder recently that takes sdhc cards for recording, no built in HD here. I took my toddler out to the museum yesterday and tried the camcorder out for the 1st time.

I did read the quick start manual and bought a 32gb card for the cam which is 1080p by the way. I recorded for like 2hrs, pausing now and again and closing the camera, but when I did a play back this morning, I only have the first 2mins broken into 6 thumbnails.....

Anyone know what happened here and why is the video not continuous and just 1 recording?

Newer camcorders create separate files each time you pause recording. It would require a fair bit of processing power to stitch two recordings together (more than a camcorder would probably have) it's not like linear tape.
