Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera
No. The 5385 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. You're limited to cards 2GB and smaller.

I am sorry to inform you that the camera's driver is only suitable for PC. A MAC version of the driver does not exist.
Try and use a help of a friend with a PC to do what you need to do.

Yes this camera supports the SDHC card the difference is more space.
1gb and 2gb are considered regular SD cards. Anything 4gb and above is considered "High Capacity".

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Funny, I recently bought the exact same model. The answer to your question is simple (that's the good news!)
A long time ago, when these small SD Cards first appeared, they were limited in capacity from 128 Megabytes (MB) to a maximum capacity of 2 Gigabytes (GB).
To enable the same size card to store a greater capacity, a new specification had to be created. This new spec. was SDHC, and allowed the cards to store from 4 GB up to 32 GB.
The confusion arises because people still refer to all these cards as 'SD cards' when the higher capacity cards should really be called 'SDHC' cards.
Your camera will accept standard SDHC cards. Just make sure you don't order 'mini' cards which are much smaller in dimension.
Hope this clears up the confusion.

Testimonial: "You explained it perfectly. Your right, Vivitar caused the confusion by referring to an SD card rather than an SDHC card. Thanks for your help."
