Can I use the PDC 300 with newer Windows operating systems?

Have a PDC 300, and the software that came with it says it works with Windows 95 only. Is there a driver available that works with newer Windows operating systems?

The PDC 300 camera was discontinued some time ago. No new driver software is available from Polaroid -- however, a compatible TWAIN driver is available from a third-party source.

Drivers for PDC 2070 camera


http://download.driverguide.com/driver/Polaroid+PDC+2070+Video+Camera+Device/Polaroid/d131494.html

These drivers are for Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 2003 only. They MAY work for Windows 7.

Versions 2.1.9.9 (2002-10-21) 2.0.0.0 (2002-07-31) 1.0.3.7 (2002-07-25)s Uploader Notes Posted these drivers here due to the support (or lack of!!) that polaroid give on their web site, these drivers enable you to sync the digital cam with Windows 98, 98se, me, and 2000, although they have come straight of the installation cd, i have been unable to test them. Any probs though give me a buzz, colmasters@hotmail.com Uploaded By Colin Masters (DG Member) on 1/5/2004 Driver Package pdc2070drivers.zip (385.0 KB)

Driver for Pretec DC-300 Digital Camera for Windows Vista


Try this:

Uninstall the driver (if installed). Next, put in the driver CD and browse to the setup.exe file. Right click and select properties. In the box that opens, select compatibilty tab and select the box next to "runthis program in compatibilty mode for" and select XP SP2. and install the program

Should that not work, uninstall and retry the above process, but select Windows 98 or 2000 this time..Hopefully that will work.

If it still does not work, then unfortunately, you will either have to downgrade to XP (I believe the driver works for XP) or buy a new camera altogether..

Error - Kernel32.dll


Microsoft defines Kernel32 errors as follows: "The Kernel32.dll file is a 32-bit dynamic link library file that is found in Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millenium Edition (Me). The Kernel32.dll file handles memory management, input/output operations, and interrupts. When you start Windows, Kernel32.dll is loaded into a protected memory space so that other programs do not take over that memory space. On occasion, you may receive an invalid page fault (IPF) error message. This error message occurs when a program tries to access the Kernel32.dll protected memory space. Occasionally, the error message is caused by one particular program, and other times the error message is provoked by multiple files and programs."

Can I use the PDC 700 with Windows Me?


The PDC 700 camera TWAIN driver is not 100% compatible with Windows Me because it does not support USB downloads. No new driver software is available from Polaroid -- however, a compatible TWAIN driver is available from a third-party source. The Pretec DC-800 is the functional equivalent of Polaroid's PDC 700. Pretec's DC-800 Setup Disk for Windows 95/98/ME/2000 is available for download at its online Driver Download Center. Testing done by Polaroid has shown that this driver works with the PDC 700 using the listed operating systems, including Windows Me. When accessing the camera with image editing software compatible with the computer's operating system, the camera driver appears as Digital Camera 1024X768 Driver.

Drivers to use


If you really want to keep on using this old 640x480 camera, why not look for some cheap old notebook with Win95 installed?
