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.

How do i get an 8gb sd card to work in my vivitar dvr-530 cam corcoder?


The DVR-530 works with SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC, not an SD card. While SDHC cards fits into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camcorder. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camera works.

The only sd card i can find locally is an 8gb marked PNY SD HC it says on the packaging that this is new technology and only compatible with SD HC host devices. Is this card suitable for the Vivitar...


To be correct, the 8GB card is not an SD card but an SDHC card.

The 925DVR can use both SD and SDHC cards, up to 32GB in size. There should be no problems with the PNY card.

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.

My vivitar 410 is saying the memory is full but it has a brand new sd card???


Hi

There are two Vivitar DVR-410 models. A model released in the early 2000's and a newer version released in 2010.

If you have the the earlier DVR-410 model then it will probably only use low capacity SD cards - e.g. 512Mb or lower. if you are trying to use a higher capacity card on this model it may well show that it is full.

If you have the modern 2010 version of the DVR-410 then it can uses SD cards upto 2Gb and SDHC cards upto 16Gb

You should also check the card you are trying to use is formatted, and the lock switch is not set.

Hope this helps

What is the largest SD card I can use? Is there a difference in SD and SDHC?


SD cards max out at 2GB and so the largest SD card you can use with this or any other camera is 2GB.
SDHC is a later extension to increase card capacity. It is backward compatible in that SDHC devices can also use SD cards, but not forward compatible in that SD devices cannot use SDHC cards.

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 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.

Camera won't record on SD card


SD cards have become the industry standard....but beware...there are SD cards NOT backward compatible...i.e.,some cams won't take 2GB or larger; then there is SDHC; SDHC(HD); RUNS FROM 512G thru 32GB HC/HD; ECT...check your cams manual for SD card compatibility.
