Answers :

I have done exactly the same as you mate, 2gb SD maxell card, dosent function, however when we where at a family get togther i swaped cards with a mate, so i gave him my 2gb card to put into his camera which wan not a vivitar and gave me his 64mb sd card (cant remeber the make of his) and my vivitar 3720 worked fine, with his card... and my card worked fiine in his camera...
\015\012
\015\012so i think its just that the vivitar cant take upto 2gb... try buying or even swaping your card for a lower memory..
\015\012
\015\012i will be doing this, just havent got round to it.

\015\012Hope this helps.

Hi,
\015\012I agree with the above solution.
\015\012I bought this cam and did not like it at all, high battery usage, coupled with an awkward feature screen.
\015\012I must admit, it did take decent pics, | used a 128mb SD card with no problems.
\015\012i bought this to take to Brasil last yr, looking for a cheap camera, incase of loss or theft, and it done an excellent job at capturing some excellent pics..
\015\012However, i am off to Brasil again in 3 weeks and wanted something more user friendly...I sourced a cam from Amazon, it is the Samsung C630 and it is selling for around £50 or less, its been a great buy , It has as many features as the last Coolpix i owned some yrs ago...
\015\012It ios so easy to use nad comes with some great editing software...
\015\012I used it for the forst time and managed some 400 pics and 1hr of video capture, and my 2700 mh rechargeable batteries still had plenty life in them, which surprised me a lot, i had read a lot of reviews on this cam before buying it, Most reviews gave it a thumbs uop, particularly for its ease of use.(many buyers bought it for kids, mostly because of its price)... It really is a great easy to use digi cam, with lots of features, The main complaint was with its battery consumption, but having taken all comments onboard, i decided to buy it.
\015\012I took the advice of using rechargeable batteries of around 2500mh and managed to source some 2700mh batteries from a buyer on amazon.
\015\012I also bought a 2gb SD card, both the batteries and the card were really cheap, however, postage waqs £4.50, nevertheless, i got the batteries for around £7 with postage.
\015\012These Scandisk 2gb cards are selling online for £17, so it was a good buy despite the heavy postal charge for something so small.
\015\012I'd definately recommend upgrading to this cam, I really don't have any need for my Vivitar 3720 now, so if anyone would like this cam, let me know, I'll be happy to pass it on, you pay the minimal postage to ship it to you, and i'll be happy to let you have it.
\015\012I metined that after some 400 pics and around 1hr of video footage, i still had room for another 200 or so pics from my 2gb card on that Samsung. Well, i had it set to the finest of fine settings, and when i changed ther settings down to a minimum, it was showing there was another 4,400 worth of pic space still available...
\015\012Thats amazing...
\015\012Same as teh batteries, the card cost £4.50 to send to me... It cost around £2.39, so even with the extortionate postage rates that the seller applied, it was still a great steal on amazon..

I bought a new vivitar vivicam t324n digital camera. I used an SD card that I had previously used in my old vivitar vivicam3935. All the pictures have a reddish hue.
