Question about Dowson Video Cameras

1 Answer

Does the 2.5-inch HD Car DVR road dash camera recharge when plugged in to the computer with the usb cable?

There was no AC100-240V power cable with my product. My son told me that the removable battery would charge when hooked into my computer with the USB cable. My cigarette lighter does not work in my car and the only cable included was the DC5V. I have other questions, but that is the most pressing at the moment.

You also have to plug it into the power source. They put it together with the charger. Get the charger and you will see that you can plug the AC adaptor cable in the other end. This allows you to power up when you are using the USB.

How do you recharge camera battery? camera manual is not clear abot how to hook up battery charger or even where it is!


The easiest way is by using a standard USB cable...plug the small end of the USB cable into your camera (located under the headphone jack) then plug the larger end of the USB cable into your PC or laptop. Turn on your computer & this will charge up your Vivitar 550.

Flip Mino HD battery will not recharge


I panicked when I saw all these posts but the reset did work for me. Others say it doesn't but this first time at least, it did the trick. I stuck the end of a paper clip in the little hole in where the tripod mount is (it's further recessed than the mount itself). It doesn't seem like it fits, but it does. The minoHD was off, since by this time it wouldn't turn on. When I tried to turn it on again, it finally came on with the battery in the red zone. I recharged and it appears to be fine.

Vivitar DVR 545 - Is this going to work with my MacBook?


I have a VIvitar DVR 545 I can not find out how to recharge the rechargable battery



I just bought this camera and had the same problem.

How DO you charge the battery???!!!

Here goes:
Open the box the camera came in and you should find a little rectangualr black box and a 3-pin plug.
Ignore the other stuff unless you think you may need it (depends what country you're in and what your mains supply wall socket fittings are). Take a close look at the little rectangualr black box and you'll see a slot in it. That's where your battery goes! Remember the battery must be taken out of the camera and slotted into this box! Make sure you align the battery correctly to the litle pins inside the box.
The Vivitar DVR 545 uses a sort of mobile phone/cell phone battery.You must take the battery OUT of the camera. Now you have slotted the battery into the box you connect the 3-pin plug to the box and then insert the plug (attached to the box) into your wall mains supply socket. The box will light up and you'll see a red light. Once this light turns green your camera battery is charged!

RE-INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CAMERA.

The whole charging procedure for the DVR 545 is ridiculous but there it is! By the way one drawback about having to remove the battery from the camera to charge it is that you will lose all or most of your camera settings. remember to reset video and photo settings - resolution, flash etc., etc.

Also a word of caution:
The Vivitar DVR 550 is unusual in that the battery is charged using the USB port. If you also happen to have a DVR 550 do NOT attempt to charge the Vivitar 545 using the Vivitar DVR 550 USB charger cable!

You will destroy your DVR 545 in seconds!!!!

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?


1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
