Check the little tab on the side of the SD card to make sure it is not locked. If that doesn't do it, take the batteries and SD card out, wait 30 seconds, then re-insert the batteries and SD card. If all else fails, read the manual on how to format (or reformat) an SD card. In either case an pictures stored on the card will be lost.

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.

I bought a 4g memory card and it will not format.


The 6320 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed to take them. You will have to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

The 5386 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

If it says up to 8gb on your vivitar instructions what does that mean


It means that memory cards of sizes up to 8GB will work with this camera. 8GB, 4GB, 2GB, 1GB, 512MB, etc. Such cards will work. 16GB and 32GB cards will not work.

I haven't heard of anyone having this problem, and they're all using 4gb Scandisk cards, so...I would suspect that the card is bad. Try to get it exchanged, but first try an older, card you used before, to make sure the camera is ok as far as detecting a card. Hope this helps.

I just inserted 4GB Memory card and took only one picture. I keep getting error message "Memory card is full, insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and take more photos".


http://www.vivitar.com/products/19/ViviCam%205018%20User%20Manual.pdf

Is the manual, and you need to refer to pages 6 and 7.

If you still have problems, you should contact Vivitar support. This should not be a problem since the camera automatically switches to the SD card when inserted.
