Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera
Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera
I have one SD card that will not allow me to view the pictures I have taken, or move them over to my computer. When I try to open the file from the camera folder, it says "no preview available" and when I try to copy them to my hard drive, I get the message, "Cannot copy [filename]: the parameter is incorrect". I can see the files are there, but cannot view thumbnails or move them over. When I look at them on the camera (not connected to the PC and in view mode), I can see them just fine.
..wel, i solved mine.. im copying music files into a memory card like micro SD.. when im copying music.. it says.. cannot copy file.. the parameter is incorrect... then go into My Computer then Right Click the external hrd drive(micro SD),, then go to properties....then tools.. then click the Check now.. - it will check for some errors and automatically fix the errors.. :D thats it..

The holding the sd card in a few seconds and then letting it click out to it's normal position worked for me but since my sd card reader on my eMachine is not a clickable one, I had to bridge with a Kingston sd card reader to USB. Putting the card directly into the pc gave me the same old 'incorrect parameter', 'device not ready' problems. Placing the card in the Kingston reader and then plugging it in, showed no media at all, but clicking the card into the reader and holding, while the reader was plugged into the pc, did the trick. I can now use any sd card and replace and remove files at will, including seeing properties and changing filenames of files on the card. I have the Kingston TravelLite SD/MMC reader if you want to make sure to get a 'clickable' one. Of course, you have to use care when clicking the reader whilst plugged into the machine so you don't break the usb port. I have tried many more technically posh things to solve this maddening problem but this simple thing finally did it. Thanks for the info here!

I cannot believe it but I just solved my problem. I have a Gateway Laptop with the Texas Instruments TIxx21 card reader. At some point it stopped reading SD cards and would give me an Incorrect parameter cannot copy error. I could not copy to or from. My fix is so simple and I hope it works for all of you. I push the card in all the way and wait a few seconds, then I let it click back into position and the images and files work perfectly!

The Best way i recovered my photo's is connect your Camera with your pc.
Go to My Computer. Click right on the disk of your Camera and go to properties.
Than go to the tab Tools. Than you will see an option for Error-checking.
Click on the button Check now... You will be promted to start the error checking.
Make sure u select both options --> Automatically fix file system errors and Scan and attemt recovery for bad sectors.
After that click start....... See the magic happen ;-)

I've had the same problem trying to transfer pdf files between my desktop and laptop via a memory stick. The desktop will read the stick files, but the laptop gave the error, yet they are both using XP pro. I recopied onto the stick and the laptop then read without error. I can only assume that the laptop driver had a problem with a read error.
Solution: Recopy or try another PC to read it!

I had the same problem using a SD card reader and copying the sat nav data to My Docs, I wanted to make a back up of the sat nav maps. I zipped the folder that threw up the error and copied the zipped file to My Docs. Unzipped it and no problems. Still don't know why it worked the file was only 289mb.

Same problem... Read your stuff above and tried the SD-card in a camera instead of the "old" (2 years) computer. All pics are still there! Thanks guys!

You just saved me a lot of heartache! I'm at my computer in tears thinking I'd just lost about 400 very important pictures. I just took my SD card out of my computer's reader and into a USB SD reader and all is fine and dandy. Weird! And THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
