  1. DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE PACKAGED WITH YOUR CAMERA.
  2. The easiest program to copy picture files from one place to another came with your computer. It's called "My Computer"
  3. Turn off your camera and remove the memory card.
  4. Insert the memory card in a card reader, either one that's built into the computer or a separate one.
  5. To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer
  6. The memory card shows up as a removable disk in "My Computer"
  7. Left click on that removable disk to find a folder called DCIM (Digital Camera IMages)
  8. The files in that folder are your pictures, and their names end in "jpg"
  9. Copy those files by selecting them and copying them. The keyboard shortcut (control-A) marks all the photos in a folder and the keyboard shortcut (control-C) copies them to the computer's clipboard.
  10. Navigate to the folder within "My Documents" named "My Pictures" and paste (control-V) your photos into place.
  11. Learn how to make new subfolders within the master folder "My Pictures" so that it's easier to find a photo you want. I make up folders with names like "2007March" and divide my photos by the month taken.
  12. After you copy files or folders to the hard drive, it is useful to view the hard drive to confirm that the files are copied.
  13. Do not erase photos from your memory card until you are positive you've saved them on the hard drive!


Using the camera as a source, instead of a card reader (but we really, really suggest using a card reader)

  • You can copy photo files directly from your camera to the computer. Use the USB cable that came with the camera.
  • Very important: make sure that your batteries have a full charge before you start this procedure.
  • If the power fails during the transfer, data will be corrupted.
  • Be very careful when inserting the USB cable connector into the socket of the camera. This is one of the most fragile components of the camera and we have seen cameras damaged by carelessness.
  • After you copy files or folders to the hard drive, it is useful to view the hard drive to confirm that the files are copied.
  • For the greatest safety of your irreplaceable images, make a second copy on CD, DVD or detachable hard drive.

My usb is plugged into my camera: i can view the pictures on line but cant download pls help i lost the cd thanks


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have the camera and plug but no cd


When you connect the camera to the computer, it probably creates a USB flash drive in My Computer - you should be able to view and copy the photos from there. You could also check Vivitar's Website to download the OEM software, or Download.com for some generic photo-editing software.

You don't need any special software in order to use your camera.

Software for my nikon


Hello All!

here is a easier way to view/transfer your videos/pictures.....

if your running Windows Xp or Vista great.

select your menu button on the back of the camera , then Shooting menu, then Set up, scroll down to Interface, then USB, select mass storage. press menu to exit.

turn your camera on after you connect the USB cable to your computer and camera.

a new hardware wizard should be active, Xp & vista provides the drivers and a one time deal. your camera turns into a removable hard drive or like a jump drive.

you can drag & drop the video files easily into a folder .....

Disc Error


I had a similar problem, I was able to view the images on the camera but could not download them to my computer. I have an external cd drive, HP CD writer plus. This drive does not require me to finalize my CDs in order to download my pictures. With the damaged CD, I used a piece of software called BADCOPY to recovery the files(pictures) on the CD. I was able to recover all but one picture from the damaged CD. (I tried using the cd drive on my pc and the recovery software did not find anything, I had to use the external drive)
