Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 3785 Digital Camera ?
Any suggestions on what SD card to use with this camera?
\015 I want to get an SD memory card but not sure what will work with this camera\015
I put in a san disk ultra II 1.0 gb and it works fine. I don't know if it means anthing but my card is the breakable kind. You can break it down to go in a computer. I could not turn my camera off, I could not load pictures, it would tell me that my card is full and i was ready to throw it across the room. It works great now!!!
Try going to the web site or find out who made the camera. It might not even have a memory card .

Hi. Last time I went to used my camera the screen showed a message saying the memory card was damaged. When I tok it out I saw that it was slightly damaged on the bottom strip. I have replaced it with another memory card but the same message keeps coming up so I cannot take any photos.The message says: "This memory card cannot be used. Card may be damaged. Insert another card." Any suggestions how I can reset the camera before I pay to put it in for a service?

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this?
