One of the hair stylist from barber shop a couple doors down from our computer shop came in today with a problem on her Vivitar X029 digital camera she got for Christmas. The 2GB SD memory card she was using was not working properly in the camera and she also let me know that this was already a new SD card because he first SD card she used had the exact same problem. Below is information about the problem itself and the steps used to resolve the problem.

Vivitar ViviCam X029 Digital Camera SD Card Errors:

Below are two different errors seen during the troubleshooting process including the Card Full error which was the real issue. The first image below displays a Memory Full error which was actually caused by the SD card not being fully inserted into the X029 digital camera properly.

This first error was resolved easily by opening the side of the ViviCam X029 where the battery is located and pushing the SD card completely in place. Once this was completed I attempted to take another picture and received the below error.

I first attempted to format the card using the X029 digital camera itself as I figured since the SD card was brand new it must not even be formatted yet. Anyhow formatting the SD card via the Vivitar ViviCam X029 digital camera did not work so I next inserted the 2GB SD Card into my Windows 7 computer which immediately prompted me to format the card as shown in the below example image.

Click the “Format disk” button which will open the disk format configuration window which is displayed below.

Make sure to select FAT32 as the “File system” because a SD card formatted with FAT will not work. I would also suggest removing the check from “Quick Format” to make sure the disk is formatted properly. Once you have set the file system to FAT32 and unchecked Quick Format click the Start button to format the SD card. Once the format is complete the below window will appear notifying you the SD card has been formatted.

Insert the SD card back into the Vivitar ViviCam X029 digital camera, power on the digital camera, and begin taking pictures. The pictures will now save directly to the SD card!

It should not matter what size the SD card is as long as it is formatted properly. I tried both a 2GB SD card and a 8GB SD card and both worked without issue. Depending on the resolution you have configured or the images a 2GB SD card can fill up fairly quick so you might consider looking into purchasing one of the below SD cards.

    Hello Rosa,

    Unfortunately I am not even sure what you mean by that. I had fixed a friends phone which is why I wrote this article.

    Thanks.

    Okay everyone, the memory card has a very small switch on the side, it says “lock” usually. When you put the memory card in there is something in the camera that switches it the wrong direction for some reason. I had to tape mine to make it stay in the right posision. Hope I helped (:

    I have a Vivitar 5018. Brand new. Kingston 2g memory card. It wouldn’t see it if it was in the camera when I turned it on. Insert it while it was turned on. ” Memory full, insert a memory card”. The memory card was inserted the right way. The Kingston memory card was defective.
