Re: upgrade from xp to vista no cam working

There's no solution, I'm afraid. I've talked to the manufacturer as I have exactly the same problem. They have not created a Vista driver for this camera, and have stated categorically that they will not be doing so in the future.

My computer won't recognize my Praktica MicroPix: "USB Device Not Recognized". I have installed, uninstalled & reinstalled MYDSC several times, but no success. Any recommendations?

here are drivers.. they will work for up to XP .. they might also work in Vista (you may have to use XP compatibility mode) .. if you are using Vista or Win7 then you might want to try that with your present drivers ...

Slide back my power on/off cover on my DC SLIM 524 Digital Camera But thelens do not go back.

Most of the time this is caused by dirt, grit or sand in the lens mechanism. The best way to fix this is to use an air compressor. Put the nozzle to the space between the lens and the camera and blow air into the space, you may have to do it a few time until its clean. Let me know if you have any more problems, and don't forget to rate my answer a fixya.

Need driver for PRAKTICA DC Slim 315

Sounds like you have set it to PC Cam mode. If you put it in Mass Storage mode, you don't need a driver to use it.

To put it in Mass Storage mode: Hold the Mode button while it's turned on. Select the 3rd option that appears (looks like a Swiss army knife) by pressing the button to take a photo.

Scroll down and change USB Mode to Mass Storage.

Software download


You can download the drivers from

Also note if you are running Windows XP or higher you do not need the software to get the pictures off the camera (I have one my self and it works fine on my Windows XP and Windows 7 computers).

It is possible that the drive letter that the camera wants to use by default is assigned to another device. The links below will help you reassign a drive letter to the camera.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Praktica Slimpix & Vista Problem

I have heard that other people experience problems with un-available Vista drivers (not particularly your item)...either check camera's website for new driver, or wait it out until they write one or go back to XP
