I also have a ViviCam 8400 and am running Windows Vista on my laptop. Windows Vista is more robust than previous versions of Windows. We can certainly tell from the colorful, detailed graphics and it's startup speed. So the key to using this camera on Vista is -- and I learned this through experience :) -- patience. If you have the USB cable that came with the camera, just plug it in and wait, seriously, for about 3 to 5 minutes for the computer to recognize the media and load the photos. Alternatively, and much easier, is to use an SD card while you're taking pictures. The SD card slides into the slot behind the batteries. Take your pictures on the camera, then pop out the card when you're done, then insert the card into the front of your laptop, to the right of the volume slider. If you need help from here, let me know...

Using vivicam 8400 as webcam


You can't. The 8400 was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card. It was not designed to stream videos live to another device.

There is no software required for your camera to work in the windows Me/2000/XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X, and Desktop LX . Driver software is required only for windows 98 for other it should work fine .

Hope this helps.

I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.
