    I am writing to you from the Caribbean Island of St. Lucia seeking some assistance in finding out what might be wrong with my 3785 Vivitar camera.

    I had some pics on a memory card and attempted to put them on my computer. Just then I was distracted for a moment and inadvertently unplugged the USB from the computer without closing the files. I attempted to put off the camera but it would not go off but the green light turned red and no matter how many times I tried to put it off the red light would not go out nor the camera would not work. I tried taking out the batteries and then it went off, but every time I put on the camera with the memory disc in, the camera would not work.

    I still have been unable to see these pictures on the memory disc, this happen 6 months ago. I tried purchasing another disc, formatted it and still the camera refuses to work. However if there is no memory disc the camera uses it's built in memory and takes only 10 pics.

    Can you help or tell me what's wrong with my camera? I would really love for you to respond to me.

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Buy a 1GB card (or 2). The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.

Do not know why my camera is saying that my card needs to be formated' I brought it into London Drugs camera department and they could not help me they say that I need to find the manual; a manual that I...


This camera only supports an SD card of 1GB maximum. I tried a 2GB SD card and the camera reported the error you describe, that the card needs to be formatted (and it wouldn't format in the camera, either). I purchased a 1GB Duracell SD card P/N DU-SD-1024-C at Wal-Mart, and it was actually a 2GB card (tested in my desktop PC's SD slot and it was fine). Nice deal, but this camera can't use it. I bought a 3-pack of Kodak 1GB SD cards at Wal-Mart and they worked great in this camera.

Cannot seem to get my camera to work


The specifications on page 25 of the User's Manual state that only SD cards between 8MB and 1GB in size can be used in this camera. When I tried a larger-capacity 2GB SD card in this camera it reported that the card needed to be formatted even though the SD card worked fine in my desktop PC's SD card slot. Verify that the capacity of the SD card you're trying to use is 1GB or less, I suspect the error report about formatting is due to the SD card being larger than the camera can handle.

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

"This card can not be used"


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.
