No. You may only use SD cards, which max out at 2GB.

If your camera connects with a USB cable you should be able to download the USB driver from Vivitar's web site. Once the correct USB driver is installed Windows (2000, XP, or Vista) should see the camera as a removable storage device when you connect the USB cable to your laptop. Then use Windows explorer to copy the photos from the camera (removable storage) to your hard drive.

SOURCE: Memory card not recognised

I think that because it is SD HC, You wont be able to use it. This is caused because your camera is old, and the card reader on your camera is not SD HC.

If your SD card is full
Download a program from the internet like PICASA3 for free
to load your pictures on.
Then Format (erase) the SD card then you will be OK.

My z720 will no accept a new 8G 0r even a 4G memory card, in the past I have used and still use a 2G card and it works ok.


Your camera works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB and 8GB cards are actually SDHC cards. While they will fit into the slot, SDHC cards are electronically incompatible and will not work in SD devices. You need to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Trying to find driver to download for a vivicam 5388...vivitar say they no longer have details on this product.


Consider NOT using a driver.

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

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.

It means anything bigger won't work in the ViviCam 5388. They may work in other cameras, depending on the camera.
