Install the software that came on the CD with your new camera. There should be a photo management software that will help you do this. Or you can download it from here:

1. Plug in the camera to the PC and ensure it is detected by the PC(Install thedrivers first).
2. Right click START button and select Explore.
3. From the left panel, scroll to the drive corresponding to your camera. (Itwill usually be located after the last DVD/CD ROM Drive letter.
4. Click on that drive to expand the folders in the right pane.
5. Search for the relevant pictures from a folder within that drive.
6. Copy the required pics (Hold CTRL and click on pics in case you want toselect more than one pic). Then rightt click and select "COPY"
7. Once you copied all the needed pics, select a folder on your computer (orcreate a new one) and paste the pics into this folder.
8. You're done :)

Hi, I have a Vivitar 3750 camera. My software disk is for windows XP. I bought a new computer Windows 7. Is there a free download for the software for window 7? Thanks


To my knowledge there is not. The software you have for the camera as you found out is not compatible. Windows 7 will have imaging software built in which leaves the only problem being getting the images from the camera to the new PC's hard drive. This can be accomplished using a memory card reader, the computer then looks at this reader as an external hard drive. You can then download the memory card files to a folder on the computer and ask Windows 7 to open the file folder. This should one selected file type thumbnails of your pictures. Personally I don't use the camera software at all. I use Photoshop to handle my photo's that and a memory card reader so I can use any one of my four digital cameras. I'm sure Photoshop 7 has imaging programs in the early versions it was called "Paint"

I tried using my HP Photosmart 318 photo imaging software for windows, but it is good only up to XP. I now have a Vista. What is my next step to be able to use my HP 318 on my Microsoft Vista? Thanks.


As a work-around, you should try using Picasa to download the pictures off of your camera.

Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.
  • Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
  • Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.
  • Once you have Picasa installed, connect your Olympus camera. Picasa will recognize that you have connected the camera and ask you how you want to proceed.
  • Have Picasa copy the images from your camera
  • You can then use Picasa to handle the photos from your camera.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

  2. The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer. Figure 1: Connect the USB cable c00878070.gif
  3. Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files: Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
