I bought a 4g memory card and it will not format.


The 6320 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed to take them. You will have to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

How do I clear the internal memory?


This should do it - this comes from the manual Formatting will do what you want.

Formatting an SD Memory Card or Internal Memory This utility formats the internal memory (or memory card) and erases all stored images and data. 1. Press the button to turn on your ViviCam 3785. 2. Press the MODE button twice to enter [ ] Playback mode. Then press the button to enter the Playback menu. 3. Select [Delete] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 4. Select [Format ] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 5. If you want to format your SD memory card or the internal memory choose [OK] by pressing / buttons, then press the button to confirm.  To cancel the action, select [Cancel] instead.  [No Image] pops up after the SD memory card or internal memory has been formatted. Note:  Be sure the SD memory card is properly inserted into the camera before formatting it.  To format the internal memory, be sure to remove your SD memory card first.  Formatting will erase all information (even unrelated , non-camera data) from the memory/card.  For complete compatibility, be sure NOT to select FAT 32 as the file system when you format the SD card in your computer. Memory cards formatted in FAT 32 file system will not be recognized by this ViviCam 3785.

If your camera can indeed use a 4GB card (your manual will tell you if it can), to format it, simply go into the menu and find "format"and follow the on-screen instructions.

Can a 4gb memory card be used in a vivicam 6324 and if so how do i formatt it it keeps saying memory full?


If it's actually a 4GB SD card and not an SDHC card then it can be used. However, the SD specifications actually only go to 2GB, so almost all cards larger than that are SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

Given that the camera isn't formatting it, I'd say that the card is an SDHC card. I suggest using SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Size of sd card


Hey there harad82, many digital cameras have difficulty formatting and thus difficulty recognising larger size memory cards. This limitation is due to the date of design of the camera, and the only recent availability of the larger memory cards. Also the processor power onboard many cameras is quite limited and cannot handle too much information, such as when one of these cards begins to fill. This can result in lost data. I would suggest you try one before purchasing, perhaps a friend can help with a loner or you can check your cameras specs for limitations on card size. The smaller size cards (512mb or less) rarely cause these difficulties. If you need help with specs please respond with your camera make and model#. Good Luck!
