You don't need any special software.
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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

You don't need to buy it. Just go to the Vivitar web site and you can download it directly to your computer. Good luck ! http://www.vivitar.com/support.asp

I had the same problem and I think I may have just figured it out. Plug in your camera as you normally would. Then right click on My Computer and then click Properties. Click on Device Manager and locate the Vivicam 4100 USB Device in the Drives section. Right click it and Uninstall. When it is off the list, unplug the camera from the computer. With the camera still turned on, plug it back into the computer. There should be a little icon in the system tray that it is locating the drivers. It will take a long time so be patient. After a few minutes, a window should appear asking what you want to do with the new device. If you open the folder to view files, you'll want to make sure to copy the drive letter to make a shortcut to the desktop as the drive won't always or immediately show up in My Computer. Also make sure to Safely Remove Hardware from the system tray. I hope that helps. It was a pain in the you-know-what.

In a lot of cases, when you fire up your pc with the camera plugged in, the pc will say found new hardware. Just let it run. When it is done, go to my computer and your pc will gain another drive. This drive is youor camera. Use programs on your pc to process pictures.

ViviCam 8400 digital camera software & manual disc won't go into my mac os x. How do I solve this problem


You can download the manual and request the Vivitar Experience software from the manufacturer's web site at

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. 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.

I have lost the usb cable plut the disc on downloading photos from my vivitar 3650 camera to my computor can you help


I didn't see any software on vivtars website for you camera. I found the manual which is at this link:

http://www.vivitar.com/ecms.aspx/2907cbb7-14d3-4f32-aa39-f710357d66f6/SupportFiles/ViviCam3750.pdf

Drivers are not required for your camera unless you have Windows 98 installed.

You will probably have to order a new CD direct from Vivitar if you need software.

There are some programs for free that you can use if you want to transfer pictures to your computer and do a few simple editing features. Kodak has one. Adobe has one as well.

It doesn't show you in the book what the camera connector looks like. You can check with Vivitar on that. If the connector on your camera is D shaped they do sell USB cable with a standard D shaped end at most computer stores.
