SOURCE: Tried to unlock Lexar SD 2GB and Lexar SDHC 4 GB - No luck

First of all, the 4GB card will never be able to work in your camera. Check on its face. It likely says SDHC, and SDHC cards as this format came out after your camera was designed (I know it looks exactly like a normal SD card, but it's not).

Now the 2GB card should work with your camera as it is a standard SD card. Remove the card from your camera. Look on the side of the card for the tiny slide switch, and slide it to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert it in the camera, and see if that corrects the problem.

SOURCE: camera works with standard SD memory card, but not SDHC

There are hardware incompatibilities between SD and SDHC cards. They're upward compatible in that SDHC devices will accept SD cards but not the other way around. You will have to hunt down SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SOURCE: Why won't Kingston SDHC 4 gb card work in Casio EX

The EX-Z57 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While an SDHC card will fit into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Card Error


The 5385 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards such as your 16GB card.

According to the manual this is al you get:

  • Digital Video Camera
    TV cable
    Strap
    Built-in USB connector
    Vivitar Experience Image Manager software Installation CD
    User`s Manual

So as with most camera a SD card is not included.
You can choose a SD card or a SDHC card up to 16 GB. The 16 GB could be the max, because in the days this camera came on the market there were no bigger cards. Perhaps a 32 GB SCHC will work too.
Please don't try to put in a SDXC card, because the camera will almost certain not recognise a SDXC card.

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 I use a 4GB SDHC memory card with Vivitar 5385 camera


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

I just bought a Vivitar ViviCam T027 camera. The manual says it will accept sd cards up to 32 gb. My question is, will this camera accept the newer sdhc cards, or only the standard sd cards?


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.

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.

Simply insert this into the slot on your camera and you should be good for well over 800 to 1000 pics.
