20 Most Recent Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Mass Storage Device Class: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSDC

If your camera is saying this then it's either connected to your computer or thinks it's connected. With most cameras this is not an error but simply a notification that the camera is connected and can be used as a storage device but not as a camera.

i have the same camera and the same problem but i have found out msdc means mass storage device, for the camera to work you have to have a memory card inside it. im getting one tomorrow for mine, so hopefully that should solve the problem :)

Hi,

The MSDC error is to do with the memory card having bad sectors or has become corrupt.

Basically you have to reformat the card to get it working or take the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader and see if you can get the computer to recognize the card that way.


Regards.

most Vivitar cameras don't have speakers so if you want to hear the sound you either have to download the video onto your PC with the USB cable or play it directly from the camera using the USB cable and Vivitar software.

You don't. The 8025 doesn't record audio with video.

Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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.

The MSDC indicates that the camera has recognized it's connected to a computer.

The red light indicates that the camera's battery is charging.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Well after looking at the manual, it is of no help but the pictures show it hinging open. Try pressing down and sideways along the compartment door from hinge line to outer edge. It it slides, it should unlock.

Read reviews that indicated Vivitar customer support told an owner to visit a camera shop. Manual is on the CD included with the camera.

Good luck.

There are a couple of ways. The best is to remove the memory card from your camera and insert it either in the SD card slot on your computer if it has one or into a USB SD card reader attached to your computer. Your computer (Mac or PC) will recognize the SC card as if it were any add on USB device such as an external hard drive. Go into "Finder" if you have an Apple or "Explorer" if you have a PC and you will find the device. Open the device/folder. In most cases there will be one or two sub-folders. Open the folders and look for files with the extension ".jpg". Those are your pictures. You can now create a folder on your desktop or another location and copy and paste or cut and paste your photos into that file.

The second method is to download the pictures directly from your camera using a USB cable. Although I am not familiar with your particular camera, there should be a small connector in which you can plug in the USB cable that should have come with your camera. Plug the other end into a USB port on your computer. The computer will recognize your camera as a device; just as it did in the first method. Again you can copy and paste your photos from your camera to your computer in the same way as I previously explained.

The third method is to use a transfer program. Most, but not all, cameras come with one or there are many for sale. Adobe has that function in there Bridge and Lightroom software although you may consider it pricy. With the software installed you can either connect your camera to the computer with a USB cable or use an SD slot or card reader. The software will automatically download and display your pictures.

There's a slide switch on the left of the camera near the USB port. Slide it away from the flower and toward the mountain.

Hi. If it's the first time of use give it 12 hours on a mains charger or 24 hours on USB. After that 4 hours should do it.
