Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8400 Digital Camera
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.
