    The camera is a vivitar 3785 and it has a slot for a memory card just sounds like a lot of folks having a hard time with memory cards and just wanted to check before i purchase

    I can tell you for certain that a 16-GB card WILL NOT WORK with this camera.  I just bought the card and the red light comes on on the camera and won't turn off.  It just stays jammed.  I didn't know a 16-GB would be incompatible.  Now I have no idea what to get for it.

I put in a san disk ultra II 1.0 gb and it works fine. I don't know if it means anthing but my card is the breakable kind. You can break it down to go in a computer. I could not turn my camera off, I could not load pictures, it would tell me that my card is full and i was ready to throw it across the room. It works great now!!!

Who can repair a Gateway DC-T50


Refer to the manual page below - note the last 2 items
If you take the camera and the card to a sales outlet the assistants are usually helpful

Inserting an SD Memory Card(Optional)
All images and video clips taken by the camera can be stored in an SD (Secure
Digital) Memory Card. Even if the camera's power is OFF, the images saved in the
SD Memory Card are not erased. An SD Memory Card can be repeatedly read and
written. You may also expand the memory capacity up to 512MB so that you can
store additional images and video clips.
1. Make sure the camera is off.
2. Slide the battery/SD Memory Card cover in the direction of the [OPEN] arrow.
3. Insert an SD Memory Card :
The front side of the memory card (printed
arrow) should face towards the front side
of the camera.
If the card cannot be inserted, check the
orientation.
4. Close the battery/SD Memory Card cover.
To remove the SD Memory Card, make sure
the camera is off. Open the battery/SD Memory Card card cover. Press
lightly on the edge of the memory card and it will eject.
Note:
If the camera is powered-on without the card, the "NO CARD" message appears on
the LCD monitor.
To prevent valuable data from being accidentally
erased from an SD Memory Card you can slide the
write-protected tab (on the side of the SD Memory
Card) to "LOCK".
To save, edit or erase data on an SD Memory Card,
you must unlock the card.
MultiMedia Card (MMC) can not be used.
You need to format an SD Memory Card before using it in this camera

My camera doesn't see SD 16GB anymore. Worked fine until a few days ago. SD works fine on PC


Try inspecting the memory card slot, eventually with a magnifying glass. Sometimes just a little bit of dust, a small paper or other debris, can block data transfer. Be sure al contacts on the card, but also in the camera are clean and shining. Never use sharp tools in or around a camera. Don't scratch the contact points.
And to make sure you can put pictures on a memory card, there must be space. If possible try to format the card in the camera. Just to make sure the camera sees the correct file system on the memory card.

Memory stick lost does camera work without one?


Yes, but not very well. At full resolution the camera will hold about seven pictures or sixteen seconds of video.
I strongly suggest buying at least one SD card. Make sure you get SD cards and not SDHC cards, as the latter will not work in this camera.

What type of memory card do i use for kodak easy share c310 camera


The C310 works with MMC and SD cards. MMC cards are nearly obsolete and hard to find, so I suggest SD cards. Be sure you get an SD card, 2GB and smaller. Larger cards are actually SDHC cards and will not work in the C310.

I purchased a Kingston 2G SD card for my Canon A530. It says "memory card error". In fact, the function to format the card does not even light up but is dimmed and skips to the next function. My...


The card is obviously too large, in memory capacity terms, for the camera. In fact, it might not be an SD card, but an SDHC card. "SD" cards larger than about 2GB are actually SDHC cards. I'm not sure about the 2GB ones, maybe there are some of each type. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

A 1GB card is plenty of space. If you really need more room, carry a spare card, like people used to do with films.

Should you use an 8gb sd memory card in a panasonic lumix dmc-fx3 camera ?


Hi,

The manual lists the following SD cards compatible:

4 GB SDHC Memory Card
2 GB SD Memory Card
1 GB SD Memory Card
512 MB SD Memory Card
256 MB SD Memory Card
128 MB SD Memory Card
64 MB SD Memory Card

An 8GB card may or may not work. If you try it, make sure it is an SDHC card. (Note: HC=High Capacity)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi there.
The hard drive will be full so you will need to transfer all your videos to your PC then format the hard drive in the camera's menu, make sure the SD card is removed before you format it.

Camera does not recognize memory card


It appears the SD card the retailer sold is not compatible with the camera. Put in a different memory card and camera works fine.

The only thing I can recommend is using the brands of memory cards that Casio recommends. They are Panasonic, San Disc, Toshiba. Make sure the card is formatted with the camera before use.
