CNET's review states that this camera connects to USB, but no mention is made of it being compatible with USB2. Theoretically it should be compatible since USB2 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible with USB 1.1. Yet I have other USB 1.1 devices which will cause "device not ready" error messages when I try to connect them to a USB2 port. Interestingly, the CNET article doesn't list Windows XP as a compatible OS. Another person posted that he received the same error message when trying to connect his camera to his 64-bit XP computer.

In any event, Largan's web site doesn't make any mention of them producing complete cameras -- only camera components. Perhaps their foray into the digital camera market was less than successful.

So, while this isn't truly a solution post, perhaps it may point you in the right direction as to possible causes of the device not ready error message.

    Your comment was the most helpful. I finally got my Largan Mega+2 to work on a Windows 2000 machine. It seems that XP automatically loads what it thinks is the right drivers for the camera, but they are the wrong ones. I couyld see te driver change from Mega 2+ to Coach Camera in the Device Manager. On a Windows 2000 laptop not hooked up to the internet, the installation worked. Maybe if there is a way to turn off automatic driver downloading, the camera might work on XP and later.

"Device is in use by another program" error message


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Device Not Recognized


This problem mainly occurs because Sony does not support connection though Hubs or for that matter Front Panel USB ports. Try connecting the camera throught the back panel ports (There are usually four to six of these depending on your motherboard.) .

If it still remains unresolved:
1. Update windows XP to atleast service pack two (If you havent already). Uninstall Picture Motion Browser.

2. Uninstall the camera from the device manager.
This is how to do it. Connect the camera, wait for it to show as an unrecognised device. Hit "Windows + Pause/Break" to bring up system properties. (Windows is the key next to alt, that brings up the start menu.). Navigate to the hardware tab and choose device manager. Expand the last tree from the list (One for USB devices) and delete the entry "Unrecognised Device" (Select it and hit delete). Shut the device manager. Disconect the camera.

3. Now, connect the camera the one of the USB ports on the back of your PC and power it on. It should show up as a PTP/Mass storage (depending on your camera settings) device.

4. If it still doesn't work, disconnect all other USB devices from your PC and then repeat from step 2.

5. You can reinstall Picture motion Browser if you like or use Xp's photo transfer utility.

Hope this solves your problem.

Cheers,
Shaunak

Hello , i have Windows Vista home premium edition installed in my HP laptop , i tried to connect USB external hard disk (containing Windows Server 20003 ) to my laptop USB port . means i want USB...


I do not believe that server 2003 is able to be ran from a USB device, I may be wrong, but I doubt it. To see what the error message is, you can be ready when it pops up and push your Pause/Break button on your keyboard, this should freeze the screen so you can see exactly what it says.
How did you install the server o/s to the external drive?

If your camera connects with a USB cable you should be able to download the USB driver from Vivitar's web site. Once the correct USB driver is installed Windows (2000, XP, or Vista) should see the camera as a removable storage device when you connect the USB cable to your laptop. Then use Windows explorer to copy the photos from the camera (removable storage) to your hard drive.

Digital camera driver difficulty


2 ideas. 1. Use the eject command in Explorer or on the system tray to eject the USB drive safely. 2. Let me be blunt. I can't count how many machines are not up todate on motherboard drivers, BIOS and the OS itself. It's not your fault, but it falls to the owner to maintain the machine.
