Missing CD-ROM & cables for Curtis Digital Camera Model# DCD5159

Well it appears that Curtis has discontinued all support for this camera. You might be able to obtain a USB connector that fits the camera online. Most use the standard/micro USB connector. As far as drivers if Curtis does not have it on their site then they might be tough to find. If you are using Vista the it might recoqnize the camera and install drivers automatically. If the camera has removable memory card you could remove the card after taking the pictures and put in the SD port of the computer and transfer the pictures onto it.

This worked for my QX3 on my Vista computer!

Instruction for installing the QX3 Microscope with Vista

Note, DO NOT use the software from the CD that came with the microscope.

DO NOT plug in the QX3 microscope until Step 4.

Step 1. Install the QX3+ downloaded from Intel:

Step 2. Download and install the QCODINSTL Codecs software from:

Step 3. Download and extract the QX3 Drivers from:

Step 4. Now, plug in the microscope.

When the "Found New Hardware" wizard appears, select "Locate and install driver software (Recommended)", a message "Installing device driver software" will appear. If you click on "details", you will see "Searching Windows Update", after a while you will be able to select "I don't have a disc. Show me other options" and browse to the folder with the extracted QX3 drivers from Step 3. above. The hardware should install successfully.

Double-click on the QX3+ icon on the desktop and the program should run.

Error message: qx5 not connected, please plug in usb.

Email Digital Blue and they will ask for your email address and shipping address. Looks like they're starting to send out the Vista version on cd via the mail, then make it available online for download later. Best of luck!

Intel Play QX3+ Microscope

Try a different computer and install the QX3Plus application (for Win 2K-XP). If it works okay, then completely remove (uninstall) it from your Dell 4600 and clean up the registry of unusable strings (try Advanced Registry Optimizer, its a free download). Then do a clean QX3Plus install BEFORE you plug in the USB cable. If the QX3 did not work on a different computer, the QX3 is faulty and maybe you should look at the QX5 as a replacement. The QX3 was discontinued at around the turn of the Century. However, if you are only missing the SPLAT; try locating the green button at the lower left corner of the image screen, it produces drop-down dialog boxes to splat screens. Good Luck!

Qx5 is not responding

the microscope may be trying to draw too much current from your USB ports, your computer will disable the device if it does this. When this happens one of the easiest (and cheapest) solutions is to acquire a Powered USB Hub (with it's own Plug top power supply). This should aleviate any extraneous current draw to the Power supply.
