Try to format the card in a computer first. It is rare for these to die if they are legit branding. There are cheap counterfeit cards that get around which are unreliable, if you have a cheap one that seems to always give you problems toss it and get a new card.

SOURCE: I need to set up the card on my Olympus C-5060 camera. When I choose the format button, it just beeps forever.

1. Power the camera off and remove and replace the card several times.
2. Recheck.
3. Put in another memory card and check.

If the recheck (2) does help, it may be dirty contacts.
If another memory card has the same issue, the camera needs repair.

SD Card Problems with Vivitar Vivicam 5118!


What size is the memory card. If it's larger than 4GB then it won't work in the 5118.
Try using another card. Don't format it in your computer but do format it in the camera before trying to take pictures.

Hi,

Have you formatted the card from the camera or the PC ?

If you have done it from PC, do it from the Camera and it should work.

The memory card may be corrupted. you have to format the card. you can do formatting using the camera and the option is in the setup menu. Otherwise connect the camera to computer and format as fat32. If unable to complete the format your card is damaged and have to buy a new one.

Choose YES for the Format option. Allow it to finish. Should work fine then.
Possible defective card if does not work after full format. Do not use any "quick format" option.
First time must be FULL format.

When I turn on the camera, a message appears on the screen that says "Card not initialized?" What does that mean, why can't I take pictures?


You need to format the card before you can use it. Pick "Format" from the camera's menu to initialize the card.
