It works independently with security cameras/multiplexers/or any video input. the hard drives have to be pc format to workin the unit..the unit takes a new harddrive out of the box and formats it for use.. does this answer your question???

I called Vivitar customer service and they told me to try with Windows Media Player in a Vista PC. It did not work. The guy then told me to try in a computer with Windows XP. I don't have it. I thanked and desisted.

My internal optical drive spits out dvd's and cd's.

When rebooting press and hold the Alt key until it displays all bootable drives. Now insert your disk. If it works install Leopard from here. If not then your drive is dead or faulty and needs checking or replacing.

All the best

Hi, According to the manual, my Vivitar DVR-310 is compatible with Windows only but I use a Mac. Is there a solution? Cheers

very simple. remove the card, and copy the pics from it into a photo editting program. or just connect the usb device to a usb port to download them.. part of manual is for using the software, part for the explaing it's operation of the hardware. as for mac software, contact vivitar for the proper software from here. i may be mistaken, but i think it's just going to be editting software, nothing to working the camera itself.
