Installing SD Memory Card

Your camera has a memory card slot that enables you to insert any "SD" compatible memory card up to 8BG. Adding a memory card will allow you to increase the capacity of your camera before you have to transfer photos and videos to your PC. Install the SD memory card as below:

  1. Locate the Memory Card slot within the battery compartment.
  2. Insert the Memory card into the slot in the correct direction. (see the sketch below)

  1. Push the card in until you feel it "click" into position. The top of the card should be flushed with the surface of the camera. An icon will appear on the LCD screen after you turn on your camera.
  2. Once the external memory card is inserted into the camera all the images taken with the camera will be stored on the card.

Note:

  1. Limited internal memory is provided for test images. The image will be deleted when camera power is turned off. Please download the images before power off .SD memory card is required for normal use.
  2. An external memory card is required for normal use. Your camera supports any compatible SD memory card (up to 8GB).
  3. If there is a photo in the internal memory when you insert the card into your camera, a "Copy to card" message will appear on the LCD with Yes or No options. On selecting 'Yes' the photo will now be copied to your card.
  4. Formatting will delete all data on the SD memory card including protected data.

  1. Don't remove the SD card during formatting as this may damage the card and render it unusable.
  2. When your card is full, download the media on the SD card to your PC and delete the photos and videos from it in order to continue using your

SOURCE: brand new vivitar 5018 keeps showing insert memory

Vivitar cameras are known for there inability to function normaly. Alot of these and many more problems I have encountered are manufacturer problems and can not be fixed on your own. the best thing to do would be to contact Vivitar and see if they can give you a refund or replace it. it is best to call but as I do not know the number here is a link to their website. I hope this helps -Richard www.vivitar.com

SOURCE: my vivitar 410 is saying

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

I recommend you move the switch on the SD card back and forth several times. Occasionally, they do not make good contact, and this will hopefully wipe any impurities off the connections.

If this does not help, try a different SD card. Fortunately, they are not too expensive these days, and you can often find sales for a 4 gigabyte card for $10 or less.

If that doesn't help, the problem is in the camera. If it is no longer under warranty, you may have to get it professionally repaired. Depending on how much you paid for the camera, it may not be worth it, however. Be sure to get an estimate of the repair cost before agreeing to have it done.

Good luck!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download videos and pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy videos and pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.
