check out page 25 of your manual.
the cap is at 4gb per video. so it doesnt matter what card size you use, the cap size is at 4gb per video. check your file sizes, see if they are 4gb. remember if youre not using HD, your file sizes are smaller thus you can record longer before hitting the cap.
for compatibility reasons, this is the limitation of the file system the camera uses.
Thanks imjason for the input but that's not the issue. As otherwise, it would stop recording at the same time each time. At the moment, it will record for varying amounts of time and then just stop recording for no apparent reason.
I do see where the camera is limited to a 4gb video clip or up to 1hr irrespective, but I'm not even coming close to those limitations now and I've always been able to record (exactly and predictably) up to 50 minutes, which is the limitation of my 16gb card in HD mode. At the moment it may record for 5 minutes, then turn around and record for 35 minutes, then 18 minutes, etc; before stopping...
