SD card for Vivitar ViviCam 4000

I bought a new 1GB SD card for my Vivitar Camera. When the camera is turned on, I get a message saying that this card cannot be used.
Why not?

    I have purchased MULTIPLE cards from differant manufacturers, and it will not accept any of them. I also, would like to know why.

    I have the same problem. It does let me format the card after a bit of switching off and on but loses the saved pictures of course.

    I thought the max. card size was 512 mb but my sister is adamant she uses a 1 gb one in her identical camera.

With a partitioning software like Acronis Disc Director, you can create a 512MB partition on a bigger SD-card. This way you still can't use larger storage space, but you can at least use the large SD card.

Hi there
i'm afraid the biggest card you can use on this camera is 512 mb, which should give you about 150 pics at medium quality.

if this was helpful please leave feedback

Hi. I've got a vivitar vivicam 4000 camera. But

The absolute largest capacity SD card which your camera can use is 512MB. Your camera is only a 6MP model, so that size will still hold plenty of images even at the highest recording quality settings (approx 183 images at 6MP Fine quality setting, 311 at 6MP Normal quality and if you dial it down to 4MP you're looking at 305 and 498 respectively. 4MP will still produce perfectly good image quality for prints up to A4 size).

You can no longer easily find SD cards of that low a capacity in most shops, but they are widely available online. As you can't wait that long, I suggest that you join your local FreeCycle group and post a request for one (your first posting must be an offer, but it can be for anything at all, and once posted you can immediately post a request). Plenty of people have obsolete cameras lying around and even stacks of old low capacity memory cards which they are often happy to give away.

You can also download a free .pdf format user manual by clicking here, courtesy of Retrevo.

I hope that my speedy, free, and comprehensive reply has been of use to you, and that you can take a moment to rate my answer.

New sd card says full

Check and make sure the SD card is in all the way, it should make a clicking sound when it's in all the way. I had this same problem with my Vivicam 8025. Hope this helps!

"This card can not be used"

I experienced the same problem with a 1Gb card. The Vivicam 4000 only supports SD cards no larger than 512Mb. My solution to the problem was to simply repartition the SD card into two equal 512Mb partitions using Cute Partition Manager... You should be able to do much the same thing except you will have to create 4-partitions, each no larger than 512Mb. When doing so, use the FAT 16 format option. As a word of caution, after repartitioning, do not use the fomat option on your camera, or it will restore it to a single partition 2Gb format. Also, when using whichever partitioning software you choose, be sure that you have selected your SD card, and not your C-Drive. Hope this is as successful for you as it was for me.
