    yeh the camera is on, on the touch screen it shows 3 options, 1st one says "Computer" with a CD sign, 2nd one says the same except has a memory card logo (i used to use that before my hard drive got replaced, but now when i choose that, the laptop turns off with the blue death screen!!) third option says print, but dnt want that. i read some kind of small print when installing the disk again, and also the writing on the back of the pcket to the CD, i think i need Windows 98 onwards for windows to be able to authorize the camera (like what makes it compatible) i just installed windows 97 (i know its mega old) so i reckon thats the problem, what do you think?
    Cheers for the feedback though :)

If I plug it into the laptop it makes the sound when a USB device is plugged in. It says found new hardware, then it wants to install the hardware with the Wizard all goes well until the wizard tells


It seems the Operating System does not have drivers for your new device or some portion of the drivers are corrupted. If you have the drivers cd for the USB stuff, install the drivers without attaching it to the pc ok. Attach the device when prompted or when completed. Make sure that any previous installations of the software and/or the device should be uninstalled. Good luck
