The cause of this problem can be traced to both the computer's hardware configuration and Windows 98SE (Second Edition). PhotoMAX cameras and other devices featuring USB (Universal Serial Bus) connections may not work with computers running Windows 98 Second Edition and equipped with the following computer hardware: * an AMD processor (350 MHz or higher) * VIA Technologies USB Host Controller or SiS 7001 USB Host Controller To find out what USB Host Controller is on your system: 1. Click Start > Settings and choose Control Panel. 2. Double click the System icon. 3. Choose the Device Manager tab. A window similar to the one shown below appears. 4. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers listing by clicking on the "+" sign next to the listing. 5. Note the type of host controller in the listing. The example above shows the SiS 7001 PCI to USB Open Host Controller.

Consider NOT using a driver.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Hi,


I highly recommend that you instead consider using a card reader to move the photos or videos to your computer. Card reader's do not require software (although Windows 98 and earlier may require drivers), are very inexpensive, are much faster downloading files from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during the download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.
Really, it would be better for the camera user if one of these was included with the camera instead of the cable and bundled software.
You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. You'll save yourself a lot of heartache if you convert to using one of these. Also make sure that you get a reader that is clearly stated capable of reading your card, particularly if you use SDHC, XD, CF, or MS cards.

How do I get Windows 98 to recognize the driver? When I install it, it says it installs all right (but doesn't say where). Then, Windows 98 says it can't find the driver.


"Windows 98 2nd edition" has full USB support, whether "Windows 98" has limited USB support. Is your version 2nd version?
If you have 2nd edition, try another USB port. Also check that the camera USB mode is in DSC mode.
This is done in the Setup menu.

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

Need driver for this camera for windows 98


debra_s,

You'll have to explain what you want to do? If you want to download your images, you don't need a driver, just attach a Windows 98 compatible card reader to your USB port and download your pictures to your favorite photo manager. You should be able to attach your camera via USB, and if the USB drivers detect the camera's disk, then a new drive will appear your My Computer.

If you have Windows 98 Second Edition, you should be set to go, if you have Windows 98 First Edition (where it doesn't say Second Edition in the My Computer properties), you'll have a tougher time with the USB connections. It would be best to upgrade your machine, or find the Windows 98 SE upgrade from a friend.

The CD that came with the camera will have the necessary software for Windows 98 SE.

What have you tried to do? What isn't working? Let me know some details and I'll help you out.

Hope these ideas help. Clarify some things and I can give you a more narrow answer.
