"This card can not be used"

I just bought a new 2GB Memory Card (Toshiba)for my Vivitar ViviCam 4000. When I put the card in the camera a messages comes on the screen saying "This card can not be used". Any ideas as to why? My 512MD works fine. Is there a limit to the GB that this camera can accomodate? I've no problem taking it back but want to make sure there is not some formatting or something that needs to be done.

I need to amend my comment above. After deleting the original partition(s) on the 2Gb SD card and creating a new 512Mb partition, you should partition the remaining space on the SD card as a 2nd FAT16 partition.

 

Afterward, only format the 512Mb partition on the SD card. This may be done using the formatting functionality included in Windows. Be sure that you select the FAT option, and not FAT32. Once having completed the formatting, eject your SD card and insert it into its slot in your camera. You should now be ready to take pictures.

I experienced the same problem with a 1Gb card. The Vivicam 4000 only supports SD cards no larger than 512Mb. My solution to the problem was to simply repartition the SD card into two equal 512Mb partitions using Cute Partition Manager...http://www.cutepm.com. You should be able to do much the same thing except you will have to create 4-partitions, each no larger than 512Mb. When doing so, use the FAT 16 format option. As a word of caution, after repartitioning, do not use the fomat option on your camera, or it will restore it to a single partition 2Gb format. Also, when using whichever partitioning software you choose, be sure that you have selected your SD card, and not your C-Drive. Hope this is as successful for you as it was for me.

Memory card error message


What type and size memory card are you using? The 6324 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

New camera, new 2GB SD card. Cannot store pictures to SD card. Get message "No Files Exist" when pressing PLAYBACK.


Did you format the new card in the camera before you tried to use it? If you used the internal memory of the camera, make sure you format that with no card in the camera first.

SD card for Vivitar ViviCam 4000


hi there
i'm afraid the biggest card you can use on this camera is 512 mb, which should give you about 150 pics at medium quality.

if this was helpful please leave feedback

What is the best memory card to get and how do I format


my guess, the SD card was too big for this cam to handle..
I had a similar problem suggested recently.
When that user tried a smaller card, they had no problem.
I have used this cam, with a 128mb card and had no problems like this.
Whether the cam can handle cards biger than 128mb, i don't know!
I do have a 2gb card which i bought for my new cam and i will try it in my old vivi 3720, if i experience any problems like those of yours, i will post again.. hope this was of help
