You don't state which card you're having problems with, but a common cause is the use of a memory card which has too large a capacity for the camera.

Your camera accepts SD cards up to a maximum 2GB capacity. It will not cope with larger capacities and will produce error messages or fail to format the card. The most common cause of the problem is using the later specification SDHC cards in older devices which pre-date the use of SDHC cards.

If you are using the wrong capacity/type of card then you have just two fixes: either use an SD card with a maximum 2GB capacity or replace your camera for a later model which is SDHC compliant. Note that later devices can still use SD cards as well.

I hope you manage to use this information to solve your problem. If not, then please add a comment providing details and I will be happy to provide a relevant answer.

SD Card Problems with Vivitar Vivicam 5118!


What size is the memory card. If it's larger than 4GB then it won't work in the 5118.
Try using another card. Don't format it in your computer but do format it in the camera before trying to take pictures.

Camera says out of memory won't let me take pictures. i cleared all the pictures out and still cant take pictures. What do you think the problem is?


I'm assuming you are trying to use an SD card in your camera and not the internal memory. I suggest you format the memory card if you are sure there is nothing on the card. Formatting the memory card deletes everything on the card and sets it up with a file system that your camera recognizes. Follow these steps to format your memory card using your camera. 1. Turn camera off 2. Insert memory card 3. Turn camera on 4. When the memory card is inserted in the camera, the [Format card] option appears in the setup menu 5. Choose Format to format the entire card. Don't choose Quick Format 6. Wait until your card is formatted
After formatting your memory card, try turning your camera off and on and you should now be able to take pictures to your memory card.
P.S. If you remove your memory card you can choose Format Memory from the setup menu to format the camera's built-in internal memory

When i turn on my camera, it won't read my memory card and won't bring up my photos that are already on my memory card. I put my memory card in and i go to take a picture and it says 'pictures...


If the card was one that was previously used in another camera, you can't use it in this camera without formatting it. Move the pictures to a computer and format the card via the camera (remember that all data on the card will be erased). Before formatting the card however, make sure the battery has sufficient charge as this process can take some time. Also remember to never interrupt this process as it can damage the card. The format option can be found in the settings.
Note: pictures taken on one camera can't be viewed on another camera.

My c703 won't format a new memory card. The old memory card is full (2GB), but I've tried two NEW Lexar 4GB cards and neither will format. Help!


Hi, The reason neither 4GB card will format is because that camera is only able to support, at most, a 2GB card. I'd suggest returning the 4GB card and getting another 2GB one.

Both memory cards show "THIS


Are both cards 4GB or larger SDHC cards, and is your camera more than a few years old? There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.
