Question about Vivitar ViviCam 3746 Digital Camera
Instructional manual only list up to 256 MB.
Will a GB memory card fit in camera and work?
SOURCE: MEMORY CARD
had since my memory card said he was full, but in fact had just format on the computer, then tried a bit and find the solution like this: put the memory card, press the menu button shows where the photos stored , Delete> Format, then everything returned to normal.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.
If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:
1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.
Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.
It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.
If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.
If it is a new camera , you should take it in for a exchange.
