You don't need any software to use your camera.
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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

SOURCE: need software download for Vivitar Vivicam 8400

I also needed software...I contacted the Vivitar people and they said the camera interacts "automatically". I have been able to download pics but it NEVER works as easy as just going to the Windows Photo Gallery...

This is truly a pain! sorry!

Like all other Digi camera the provided software is not required to transfer images to a Windows computer
The computer will do this-
plug in the camera set to upload the computer will put up the Camera/scanner Wizard and asked where you want the images to go.
No Software Required

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.

My camera doesnt record audio. I record video just fine, but it doesnt play back the auido. :( Also, this is the 3rd vivicam 8400 that I have bought. The other 2 broke when I brought them underwater.


The 8400 is designed primarily as a still camera, with some video capabilities grafted on. As such it captures images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer but you cannot record one on this camera.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

Hi traceyjane91, I'm not sure I understand exactly what you need. I can give you a link to download the User Manual but if it's the software you need maybe someone else can supply that.
