How do i unlock an sd card to delete images used in a vivitar vivicam 5018 camera


Answers :

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

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. When I called vivitar the 1st time they told my to reformat my sd card (they didn't tell me how and I don't know how to do this). When I called the 2nd time they told me I could only use a new sd card. Is any of this correct?

I just bought a Vivitar Vivicam T027 camera. It says to use a SD card. I tried that - does not fit. I tried the SDHC card - does not fit.

I'm at a loss and I have also given this camera to a friend as a gift so I'm embarrassed because I can't get mine to work or hers. Thanks for helping me.
