b,what is the max i can use(would like 2or4gig)

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

Any SD card will work in this camera. The largest capacity card is 2 GB. There are cards that look identical to SD cards that have much larger capacities, but these are SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) type cards - not SD cards; an will not work in your camera.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The switch needs to be closest to the contacts to enable writing. If it's already there, slide it fully the other way and then back. If this doesn't work, try a different card. If that doesn't work, there may be a problem with the mechanism within the camera.

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.

Testimonial: "You explained it perfectly. Your right, Vivitar caused the confusion by referring to an SD card rather than an SDHC card. Thanks for your help."
SOURCE: My ViviCam 8025 always says
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
If that doesn't work, try another card.
