You can format the SD card in your ViviCam 3785.

This utility formats the internal memory (or memory card) and erases all stored images and data. Make sure your SD card is in the unlocked position.
1. Press the button to turn on your ViviCam 3785.
2. Press the MODE button twice to enter Playback mode. Then press
the button to enter the Playback menu.
3. Select [Delete] by using the up/down arrow buttons, and press the OK button.
4. Select [Format ] by using the up/down arrow buttons, and press the OK button.
5. If you want to format your SD memory card or the internal memory choose
[OK] by pressing up/down arrow buttons, then press the OK button to confirm.
 To cancel the action, select [Cancel] instead.
 [No Image] pops up after the SD memory card or internal memory
has been formatted.

Any SD card will work in this camera. The largest capacity card is 2 GB. There are cards that look identical to SD cards that have much larger capacities, but these are SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) type cards - not SD cards; an will not work in your camera.

Press the MODE button twice to enter [ ] Playback mode. Then press the button to enter the Playback menu. 3. Select [Delete] by using the / buttons, and press the button. 4.

For complete compatibility, be sure NOT to select FAT 32 as the file system when you format the SD card in your computer. Memory cards formatted in FAT 32 file system will not be recognized by this ViviCam 3785.

Added new memory card. Camera says that the memory card is full..How do I correct this?


Assuming it is not actually full, this might mean the card is incompatible with the camera (too high a capacity) or it might mean it needs formatting. Usually a camera will say if it needs formatting, so I would check the camera specs to see whether you have a memory size it can handle. SDHC cards are not backwards compatible with SD cards.

I can't find the memory card slot on th 3785 camera. where is it.


I checked out the user manual and it looks like the SD memory card slot is located right next to the battery. Just open the battery compartment and look near the hinge and you will see a place to put an SD memory card. Here is a link to a pdf version of the manual which is nice to have even if you have the printed version:

Take Care,

Vivitar vivicam 3785 new memory card


Might be that the card is too large/small for camera to recognize, or it is a newer type of memory. Look up the specs for camera and compare to stats of memory card.

Memory Error


I had the same problem but fixed it by following the camera's directions to re-format the SD memory. You will lose all pictures on the memory card so remember to first save your pictures to your computer. Good luck.
