Have you tried to format the card.
1.

  • Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, windows 7or Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.
  • 2Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"
  • 3Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.
  • 4Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.
    If you need further assistance please feel free to let me know. Thanks and have great day, Midwest-tek

    Vivitar 7025 card locked


    Look at your memory card. SD 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.

    When we try to take a picture on our Vivatar Camera it says,card locked. Please help us with this problem.


    Most likely your sd card is locked. Try removing the sd card and moving the small white tab on the side of the sd card from locked to unlocked and give it a try.

    Cant gat my vivitar 5024 to take its card


    Your Camera supports a SD Memory Card up to 8 GB. But, its always recommended to use a 1 GB or 2 GB card since higher the capacity, faster will your batteries get drained. And since the 5024 takes in AAA batteries, they will be drained out really quick.

    Locate the Memory Card slot. You should find it on the side of the camera just above the Macro/Normal Switch. Now, insert the memory card into the Camera. The Golden lines should be facing downwards and the angled cut part should be the first to enter. Gently push the memory card in and wait for the "Click" sound. An SD symbol should appear on your LCD screen. This shows the Card has been recognized.

    Remember to use a memory card with a small capacity as it lets the battery last longer.

    Can't unlock sd cad on a vivitar vivicam 5024


    SD cards have a sliding switch along one edge. Slide it fully away from the contacts, then fully toward them. If that doesn't fix it, try a different card.

    Won't read memory card


    This usually indicates that you are trying to use 'newer' SDHC High Capacity cards of 4GB or more. Older and cheaper units like this Vivicam 5024 unfortunately may be limited to 2Gb 'standard' SD cards.
    Hope it helps: let me know what cards you are trying to use.

    Can you take photos without a memory card inserted ?


    If your camera has an internal memory, then yes but it will be very small and you will only be able to take a few pictures.
