Try shutting your computer down, insert your usb plug and then turn your computer on, it then should be recognized, and download for you.

I want to upload a video to my macbook pro for an iMovie, but it says I need a Fire Wire...Is it possible to connect my Vivitar DVR 410 to a FireWire cable?


As a tech, I found FireWire cables to be vastly unreliable, but if you just have to have one, do NOT scrimp. Get one that is heavy duty. The thicker the cable, the better. Avoid flexing the cable near the connectors if at all possible.

Windows 7 download for vivitarDVR-390H


Win 7 has the vast majorly of the drivers needed by devices today. Loading of proprietary drivers (from the manufactures) is pretty much a thing of the past. I assume that you have connected the camera and it is not recognized by your PC.

I have done an extensive search and even Vivitar has nothing in their archives about the DVR-390H. I tried a few sites that distribute off the wall drivers without any luck. I even tried to find drivers for other versions of Windows, again without any luck.

It appears that this camera was first sold in 2004, which is very old for electronic devices (these days). It records in MP3 which is now the standard for audio, video is either MP4, or MP5 (for HD). That could be one of the reasons that all support seems to have been discontinued.

Sorry I could not give you a fix action, best of luck!

Vivitar dvr 390H cuts out when looding and power won't switch off


The Vivitar DVR 390H is notorious for overheating. When the Vivitar has been on for awhile and/or it is being used heavily(uploading pics/vids to your computer, playing music, viewing videos, etc) it will overheat. The bad part is that it overheats fairly easily.

I have one of these and I do like it, but I mostly use it for its 20 GB harddrive as a backup harddrive. My suggestion is to try and make sure that the camera is not near something such as the fan on your computer, under a lamp, or near a wall when trying to upload pics/vids to your computer. Also when downloading/uploading things to and from this camera, do not try to move ALOT of files at the same time. Also, try to keep it turned off as much as possible when you are not using it. I suggest setting the "power off" to 10 minutes just to make sure.

I hope this helps!

Lost Software


There is an alternate way of downloading images from the memory card from the camera.
Get a USB memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera, insert it into the card reader, then plug the card reader into the USB port of your computer. You will now see card reader as an external memory device, open the folder and copy your photos onto your hard drive.

More upload problems


Hi,

Most if not all digital cameras would be read as an "external mass storage device". Based on your description, it is possible that it is the USB port of the PC that has an issue and not the camera. A couple of things that you can try:
  • verify that the PC's USB ports work by plugging in other USB devices such as a printer, flashdrive, MP3 player;
  • try the Vivitar in another PC;
  • double click on "My Computer". The camera would show as another drive, perhaps an "E";
  • rollback your USB drivers;
  • uninstall latest Microsoft updates (USB);
  • update your USB drivers not with Microsoft but with the motherboard's manufacturer's website;
  • try the digicam's memory card in a memory card reader.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I lost my adapter to recharge my camera


You might be able to buy a replacement or universal adapter at your local CircuitCity or Best Buy. If you can find one there, may I suggest that you contact the camera's manufacturer.

PC NOT ACCEPTING USB


Hi,

On a similar post, my reply was....

A couple of things you can try:
1. Insert the Camera's USB cord to another USB port of your PC;
2. While disconnected from the PC, verify that the pictures are still inside the camera's memory;
3. Reset the camera (power on/off);
4. Check the camera's batteries;
5. Reboot your PC with the camera attached via the USB;
6. Remove the memory card from the camera and try uploading using a card reader;
7. Uninstall all instances of your USB in your PC's Device Manager, reboot and allow the PC to auto-detect  and auto-install necessary drivers; and
8. Verify that the software/drivers for your camera are installed correctly with no yellow or red markings.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
