SD Card Problems with Vivitar Vivicam 5118!


What size is the memory card. If it's larger than 4GB then it won't work in the 5118.
Try using another card. Don't format it in your computer but do format it in the camera before trying to take pictures.

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.

I purchased a vivitar vivicam 5019 at big lots and cannot find anyplace online that sells memory card for this model.cannot even find this model online anywhere. package says it will take a sd card up to...


SD cards only go up to 2GB, but SDHC cards go up to 32GB. The ViviCam will take any SD or SDHC card. The brand doesn't matter. The speed doesn't matter either, though a faster card may download faster if you use a card reader instead of the camera.

You should be able to find SD and SDHC cards at any department, electronics, or office-supply store, and online at their web sites if you're willing to pay shipping and wait for it.

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.

Won't read memory card


This usually indicates that you are trying to use 'newer' SDHC High Capacity cards of 4GB or more. Older and cheaper units like this Vivicam 5024 unfortunately may be limited to 2Gb 'standard' SD cards.
Hope it helps: let me know what cards you are trying to use.

I just inserted 4GB Memory card and took only one picture. I keep getting error message "Memory card is full, insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and take more photos".


http://www.vivitar.com/products/19/ViviCam%205018%20User%20Manual.pdf

Is the manual, and you need to refer to pages 6 and 7.

If you still have problems, you should contact Vivitar support. This should not be a problem since the camera automatically switches to the SD card when inserted.
