I just bought a Vivicam T027 It says that you need a memory card for normal use I havel looked on line for a vivitar memory card for this camera and I cannot find one Are there generic ones I can get...

You can use any SD or SDHC card. The brand doesn't really matter, as long as you stick with the major brands. The speed doesn't matter either, though a faster card might download faster if you use a card reader.

You should be able to find SD and SDHC cards at any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Many drugstores and supermarkets also carry them.

Just bought a vivicam T324N model...have no idea what brand, size or kind of memory card I need?

The T324N uses SD cards and SDHC cards up to 8GB. SD cards top out at 2GB.

Brand really doesn't matter, as long as it's one of the major brands. (And if you see it at a store, it's a major brand.) Speed of the card won't make any difference to the camera, though a faster card may download quicker if you're using a card reader.

Try turning the camera off and then back on.Ensure that the memory card is the proper type for the camera. If the memory card is the proper type, try re- formatting the card using the Format option in the Delete sub-menu of the Playback Menu. If it will not format, it is probably corrupted. Replace the memory card

Trying to install memory card did format and

Although you haven't stated the make, model and capacity of your memory card the information in your question suggests that you have used the wrong memory card.

The CD33 is compatible with SD memory cards but not with the later SDHC models (the HC means High Capacity). They'll fit into the camera just fine as they have the same shape as an SD card, but the CD33 chipset is incompatible at the basic hardware level and cannot format SDHC cards.

To complicate matters further, the original SD specification allowed up to a maximum 2GB, and this was later extended to 4GB but hardly any SD devices can use the 4GB cards without a firmware update. No firmware update was ever released to allow your camera to use 4GB SD cards. Your camera was also designed before 2GB SD cards were available so whilst it may be compatible in theory it was never tested with them.

I'd recommend that you stick to 1GB maximum SD cards unless you use a Kodak branded 2GB version: Kodak's website claims that your camera should work with their own brand card of that capacity, so if it doesn't you can claim on their warranty for a refund or maybe an exchange for two 1GB cards.

If all this is incorrect and you're using a regular SD card of no larger than 1GB then you either have a faulty card or a faulty camera. The only way to find out will be to try a new 1GB SD card from a major brand name. If the camera proves to be faulty then it's beyond economic repair as labour costs for diagnosing the fault alone will exceed the camera value.

I hope this reply has been of assistance and ask in return only that you rate my answer.

Can't format a memory card for my minolta damage

Some brands cannot be used by some cameras. You should stick with the big brand names like Sandisk.

Digital camera SD card

Your camera uses a SD flash memory card. You have a xD flash memory card. Basically, you have the wrong size card. Hope this helps!
