Is the vivitar dvr 530 compatible with sdhc cards

I have a 2GB sd card for this camera and the recording time is pretty poor, only getting a couple of minutes on highest quality setting. Do I need a larger memory sdhc card or am I doing something wrong?

Plug the SD card with contact terminals facing away from battery. It most likely is using internal memory which is much smaller. All cards under 4gb are normal SD. The camera should be able to format the card, or use an adapter and windows will format (default settings).

Vivitar 508nhd wont work when SD card put in


Are you sure you have an SD card (2GB or smaller)? The 508 won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Screens is reading card is locked


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Inserted memory card into camera and does not read


First make sure that the SD card's lock switch is not in the lock position on the card. This camera allows for both SD and SDHC so as long as the card you are using isn't over 32GB then it hsould work. There is a version of SD called SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity) and these are over 32GB and will not work in your camera. Lastly you may have to format the card in the camera before it will be recognized; this is usually requested by the camera upon inserting the memory card. So the main step would be to make sure the "Lock" mechanism on the SD memory card itself is not engaged. Hope this was helpful. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com

Do i need a sd card to operate my vivitar 410


Yes you do. The Vivitar DVR 410 requires a standard SD memory card (up to 16GB) to record images or video. The 410 is NOT designed to accept SDHC memory cards so make sure you purchase the proper type.

Hi I inserted a new 8GB sd and the camera keeps trying to re-format. GZ-MC 200


There are no 8GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Unless your manual specifically says that your camera can use an SDHC card, then it won't be able to. The maximum size of an SD card is 2GB. If you need more space, just carry a couple of cards and swap them, like people used to do when they filled up a film.

DVR 518 question regarding sd card compatibility;- will the product accept a SDHC card to 8gb I have difficulty in getting a standard SD card


Hi,

The manual is not very precise but you cannot get normal SD cards that go to up 8gb, the highest is 2gb.

When they say 8gb they must mean SDHC.

Hope this helps.

I just insert a 4G micro card and says card error. Everything else works fine for 3 years ( never put a sd card before ). Thank you in advance Miguel


Check your mini SD card and see if it has the SDHC (high capacity) logo on it. Originally SD cards, including the mini SD, had a 2GB limit by protocol. The DC10 was introduced when this was the most advanced protocol. Since then the SDHC protocol has been introduced, but the DC10 is not compatible with SDHC. You need to get a mini SD, 2GB maximum capacity.

I have inserted an 8gb SD card and it will not record


If it is 8GB, it is an SDHC (high capacity) card. The protocol for SDHC is different than that for an SD card. SD card protocol handles a maximum of 2GB. This camcorder came out in 2003, well before the SDHC protocol was developed, and the camera is not compatible with it.

I have a vivitar video recorder model no 840 xhd. can you tell me what memory card to get for it. the hand book says I need a standard SD card upto 32GB.but most card have other numbers or letters after...


It can use MMC cards or SD cards or SDHC cards up to 8GB in size.

SD cards top out at 2GB. 4GB and larger cards are technically SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards.
