No. The 5385 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. You're limited to cards 2GB and smaller.

Dear Sir/Madam,

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.

SOURCE: Vivitar 5010 camera SD Card Support

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

SOURCE: I just bought a Vivitar ViviCam T027 camera. The

Hi there

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.

What is the largest SD card I can use? Is there a difference in SD and SDHC?


SD cards max out at 2GB and so the largest SD card you can use with this or any other camera is 2GB.
SDHC is a later extension to increase card capacity. It is backward compatible in that SDHC devices can also use SD cards, but not forward compatible in that SD devices cannot use SDHC cards.

Can a 4gb memory card be used in a vivicam 6324 and if so how do i formatt it it keeps saying memory full?


If it's actually a 4GB SD card and not an SDHC card then it can be used. However, the SD specifications actually only go to 2GB, so almost all cards larger than that are SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

Given that the camera isn't formatting it, I'd say that the card is an SDHC card. I suggest using SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Have had this camera ages and all was ok till i got a 4gb sd card. I get the message" card error" i sent the card back and got a replacement but the same happens, is this sd card too big for this camera?


Technically it's not an SD card. SD cards go up to 2GB, larger cards are actually SDHC cards. And yes, it is too big. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

I have a vivitar video recorder model no 840 xhd. can you tell me what memory card to get for it. the hand book says I need a standard SD card upto 32GB.but most card have other numbers or letters after...


It can use MMC cards or SD cards or SDHC cards up to 8GB in size.

SD cards top out at 2GB. 4GB and larger cards are technically SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards.

Is the vivitar dvr 530 compatible with sdhc cards


Plug the SD card with contact terminals facing away from battery. It most likely is using internal memory which is much smaller. All cards under 4gb are normal SD. The camera should be able to format the card, or use an adapter and windows will format (default settings).
