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?
Re: is the vivitar dvr 530 compatible with sdhc cards
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).

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
