Question about Vivitar DVR518 Camcorder
Although having format the card as manual says (too quickly, very suspicious) the camera never recorded anything. it shows that has a memory card inside but it only records on its little built in memory. Ive tried different cards, as Scandisk 4 gb SDHC or Crucial 8 gb SDHC , and it is allways exactly the same. Please help...
The manual that I am looking at (DVR-510, not DVR-518) says that your Vivitar DVR-518 camcorder is SD memory chip compatible, not SDHC. I personally have several devices that are not compatible with the SDHC format, so I know the frustration. May I recommend you try again with a different chip, one with the older SD format style.
I hope that helps.

If it shows that it has memory card it means that it is reading it ..so go to the menu and choose to store videos on the card ...it has to have a feature that preset this ..I m not sure what it is called ..but probably in a feature storage device or so ..
you actually have to access the main menu ...system menu and enable copy to card ..or something like that ..I looked in a menu for a 510 ..but I guess it is the same..
