I just bought a Vivitar ViviCam T027 camera. The manual says it will accept sd cards up to 32 gb. My question is, will this camera accept the newer sdhc cards, or only the standard sd cards?


Hi there

Funny, I recently bought the exact same model. The answer to your question is simple (that's the good news!)

A long time ago, when these small SD Cards first appeared, they were limited in capacity from 128 Megabytes (MB) to a maximum capacity of 2 Gigabytes (GB).

To enable the same size card to store a greater capacity, a new specification had to be created. This new spec. was SDHC, and allowed the cards to store from 4 GB up to 32 GB.

The confusion arises because people still refer to all these cards as 'SD cards' when the higher capacity cards should really be called 'SDHC' cards.

Your camera will accept standard SDHC cards. Just make sure you don't order 'mini' cards which are much smaller in dimension.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

sd card not recognizable


I read the following spec for your camera: Recording Media Internal Flash Memory 64MB Video/Image
SD/SDHC Up To 32GB Video/Image
So, I think that an 8 GB SD card should work.

Try another capacity and brand to make it work.

what is the maximum SD size that will work with the DSC-4500Z camera?


The manufacturer of your camera specifies SD card compatibility without providing a specific number. This is not uncommon however, as the maximum size for SD cards is 2 GB. Cards that have a larger capacity than 2 GB in the "SD" format are "SDHC". Read the label of these cards (that have a larger capacity than 2 GB) that *look* identical to SD cards, and you'll see that they are in fact SDHC types. The SDHC card can have a capacity of up to 32 GB. A device that is compatible with the SDHC specification should be able to read any SDHC card *and* any SD card as well; because the standard requires "backward compatibility" to the older SD standard. A device that accepts SD cards should be able to read any SD card, *but* if an SDHC card be introduced to it, it may provide unreliable results (from being able to access only 2 GB of the capacity or not recognizing the card at all). Make sure your pictures are safe and don't get lost; use only SD cards in this camera.

I hope this helps!

Please can you tell me if an SD card called SD Ultra 11 66X 2GB will be read by a standard SD card reader


Yes, i t should be unless it is a SDHC Card which it should not be as SDHC cards have minimum 4 GB capacity. For more info:

The older SD (secure digital) cards had a maximum capacity of 2GB. The SDHC (secure digital high capacity) cards can go to 32GB. Devices that support SDHC will say so in their specs and they will also read older SD card. Older devices that use SD cards will NOT use SDHC.

"SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) cards are flash memory cards with a minimum capacity of 4GB (gigabytes). SDHC cards provide removable memory for compatible digital devices including cameras, camcorders, PDAs, MP3 players and more.
