Vivitar DVR-310 memory card removal problems

Hello, I have a Vivitar DVR-310. I have removed the memory card and when I restart the cam it keeps coming up with "card error". I have put it back in, formatted it, reset to default. I'll get a message saying card is locked, when it isnt. I've tried removing the batteries with the card in and out. All possible combinations I can think of. Can you help? Thanks

If possible try another card and also try the card in another camera to verify where a possible  problem may lay.
I suspect a dud card
but best to check all ways

My vivitar dvr 310 is saying memory is full when its not. I got new rechargeable batteries to make it stay on longer but nothing is working. Can u help me please.

Remove the existing pictures if there are any then use the camera and format the memory. Even better is to buy a new memory card for it. If it will not format and or work then return the memory card and send the camera in for repair.

Good Luck,

I have Vivitar DVR 518,I recieved from Newport Pleasure coupons in about Nov. 2010. I cut into the package, but didn't realize it had a CD in it. Also,I need intructions for my camcord and need to know...

The DVR 518 uses SD and SDHC cards up to 8GB in size.

You can download the manual and request the software from the manufacturer's web site at

The best way to download videos 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 from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any video cataloging program.

I have a VIVITAR DVR 518 camcorder. i bought it from PRICE DROP. i have hardly used it and now it has frozen. once it is switched on, i cannot get any button to function and to turn it off i must remove...


Sorry to hear about the problems you have with your Vivitar DVR-518.

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Check there is not dirt de-pressing any of the button. If one of the button is being pressed permanently none of the others will work

2. Remove the memory card and see if this fixes the problem

3. Try a new set of batteries

If all else fails contact Vivitar -

Hope one of these suggestions helps

Hi, According to the manual, my Vivitar DVR-310 is compatible with Windows only but I use a Mac. Is there a solution? Cheers

very simple. remove the card, and copy the pics from it into a photo editting program. or just connect the usb device to a usb port to download them.. part of manual is for using the software, part for the explaing it's operation of the hardware. as for mac software, contact vivitar for the proper software from here. i may be mistaken, but i think it's just going to be editting software, nothing to working the camera itself.
