Vivitar ViviCam - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


The MSDC error is to do with the memory card having bad sectors or has become corrupt.

Basically you have to reformat the card to get it working or take the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader and see if you can get the computer to recognize the card that way.

Hello, Don't worry. You can rely on this photo recovery software (also recover audio and video files); it can help you recover your lost pictures from your Samsung Digital Camera (or SD card):
Photo Recovery for Windows Users
Photo Recovery for Mac Users
By the way: Before your pictures are retrieved, do not save more files to the device (or memory card) in case the original files (your pictures) are overwritten.
Best wishes!

Mass Storage Device Class:

If your camera is saying this then it's either connected to your computer or thinks it's connected. With most cameras this is not an error but simply a notification that the camera is connected and can be used as a storage device but not as a camera.

i have the same camera and the same problem but i have found out msdc means mass storage device, for the camera to work you have to have a memory card inside it. im getting one tomorrow for mine, so hopefully that should solve the problem :)

The ViviCam records no audio, having no microphone. It's just putting an empy soundtrack into the video file.

I realize that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Why would you put music onto a camera ?

What information is given in the manual ?
BTW, AFAIK, 2gb SD cards and 2gb SDHC cards are not interchangeable - do you have the correct one ?

You can try formatting it as a fat 32 card with a computer.

On the side of the SD card, there is a very small lever that locks the card. The label on the card will indicate the position of the lever to place it in the unlocked position.

You should be able to format the card in the camera. 8 gig may be too large for the camera.

most Vivitar cameras don't have speakers so if you want to hear the sound you either have to download the video onto your PC with the USB cable or play it directly from the camera using the USB cable and Vivitar software.

The cable is not causing any trouble by simply being connected to the PC end. Remove all the camera drivers prior to reinstalling the software you downloaded.
