My memory card is not opening


Your card may not be formatted -or- it is and it;s a proprietary format. If you want to format it, here is the instructions (for Windows):
Put your card into your computer (some have a slot or else use a card reader). Right click on that drive after it appears in My Computer and select Format; set the File System drop-down to NTFS (better file storage space) or FAT32 (more compatibility in older operating systems) and click Start.

Tip

Overcoming with SD card "write error"


SD cards are flash memory devices which allow a user to store huge amount of data. Being reliable and durable, these cards have become the hot choice to store data and are used in various host devices like digital camera, PDAs, video game consoles, MP3 players etc. Despite so many advantages, these cards are also prone to errors. Most of these errors occur due to reasons like interruption in read/write process, virus attacks or file system corruption. While some SD card errors can be dealt by cleaning the contacts of the card and re-inserting it, others can be rectified by formatting the card. After formatting, the SD card data can be retrieved by using either a valid backup or SD card recovery software.

Consider a situation, you have taken your family to an exotic locale and while clicking pictures through your digital camera (which is using a SD card) you witness an error on its LCD screen:

“Write error”
The above error is not rare in case of SD cards. The moment the error erupts, the data stored on the SD card becomes inaccessible. Moreover, the SD card becomes useless as you can't even store new data on it.

Cause

The above error which rendered the SD card ineffectual can be accounted to corruption. The other reason can be relatively less memory space to accommodate new data.

Resolution
In order to rectify 'write error', you can try the following possible techniques:
  • Turn the camera off, re-insert the card and then turn it on again
  • If you are still not able to access the data, connect the camera to a computer
  • You can use a card reader to access the SD card data
  • In grim situations where nothing of the above works, format the SD card and restore the data using a backup

After formatting, the SD card becomes functional and can perform read/write operation. If a backup of the data is corrupted or invalid, you can rely on a SD card recovery software. A SD card recovery tool employs improved scanning algorithms to extract data in the event of corruption.

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery, a well-known SD card recovery tool, is designed to recover lost/formatted/deleted multimedia files from a variety of memory cards like SD, SDHC, XD, MMC, CF etc. The easy-to-use tool is available in two versions, one each for Windows and Mac operating system.

SD card of digital camera got formatted?


As mentioned, you'll need to use recovery software. But first thing that's very important, take the card out of the camera and do not use it further until you've recovered the pictures. Below is a YouTube video of your freeware options, and here's more info on how to use these options, and where to get them.

How do I clear the internal memory?


This should do it - this comes from the manual Formatting will do what you want.

Formatting an SD Memory Card or Internal Memory This utility formats the internal memory (or memory card) and erases all stored images and data. 1. Press the button to turn on your ViviCam 3785. 2. Press the MODE button twice to enter [ ] Playback mode. Then press the button to enter the Playback menu. 3. Select [Delete] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 4. Select [Format ] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 5. If you want to format your SD memory card or the internal memory choose [OK] by pressing / buttons, then press the button to confirm.  To cancel the action, select [Cancel] instead.  [No Image] pops up after the SD memory card or internal memory has been formatted. Note:  Be sure the SD memory card is properly inserted into the camera before formatting it.  To format the internal memory, be sure to remove your SD memory card first.  Formatting will erase all information (even unrelated , non-camera data) from the memory/card.  For complete compatibility, be sure NOT to select FAT 32 as the file system when you format the SD card in your computer. Memory cards formatted in FAT 32 file system will not be recognized by this ViviCam 3785.

Don't know if you cover this area but can't find any information on my own...I have an SD card that read "card not initialized", I formatted the card to recover the photos and then another file...


If you formatted the card after the photos were stored on there, the photos were deleted. Format basically cleans the disk to a "like new" condition. Sadly, the pictures are not recoverable.
