Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I purchased a vivitar 8018 digital camera along with an 8 GB micro SD card. Once the card is inserted and I try to take a picture the camera screen flashes card protected and won't let me take or save any pictures. Please help me figure out what is going on since I am in Puerto Rico and am missing out on some great picture opportunities.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Apparently, you have pics on the camera's internal memory. Your card won't work until those pics are gone. Here's how...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and it should work.

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.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

I JUST GOT THE VIVICAM 8018 AND I WANT TO DOWNLOAD MY PICS BUT I DONT HAVE A CD ROM ON MY NETBOOK COMPUTER .IS THERE ANY WAY I STILL CAN DOWNLOAD MY PICS WITHOUT IT???????


Yes. Your netbook probably has an SD slot. Simply take the memory card out of the camera and insert it into the slot. Windows will recognize the card as a disk. Open an Explorer window and drag&drop the pictures from the card onto the netbook. I'll assume you know how to create folders and such, so I won't go into details on that process.

Could i purchase a replacment cd for the vivicam 8018 camera as mine is damaged, 106 Hillside Burnley Lancashire BB11 5JN or e-mail dave_trotts@hotmail.com or tel 01282434839 Thanks


You don't need to purchase anything. You can download both the software and the manual from here.
You don't need to use the Vivitar software at all. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.
