Downloaded disk but camera still says disk locked

Downloaded disk from vivitar 5385 but camera still indicates disk locked

    Disk locked or card locked?

    If it's card locked, take the card out of the camera and look at it. There's a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, the position nearest the contacts unlocks it. If it's already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again. If that doesn't do it, try another card.

Having gone nearly two years without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion about the slide switch on the card solved the problem.

I am having the same problem and contacted vivitar. I have yet to get a response but, I feel there are a lot of the same issues with this same camera all over the globe. I have seen countless inquiries about it. I feel it has to do with the lcd monitor myself. The same lcd monitor is being recalled in sony products.

Well, we are having problems with the screen turned black when we try to take a picture, just like others on this website. The LCD works for the menu, but not for picture taking. It quit in the middle of the trip to Monterey. As for your problem, can you remove the chip and put the chip into the computer. That's what I just did and I copied all the pictures we took (until the black screen problem struck yesterday) and moved them to my computer that way because we can't find the cord we bought to transfer. Try that! It worked for us! Good luck to you...

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am sorry to inform you that the camera's driver is only suitable for PC. A MAC version of the driver does not exist.
Try and use a help of a friend with a PC to do what you need to do.

I have the vivitar 5385 when I try to download photo from camera it say my camera is not hooked to my computer


Dear June,
Yes, you might be correct. The cord may be faulty. Take out the memory card and insert it into a memory card reader. Then connect the card reader to your computer and see whether you can download the photos.

Hi, hi52 - You can download a copy of your Manual from "vivitar.com/en-us/Support.aspx" Just specify your Vivicam 5385 as the Model (drop down and find it). It is 66 pages in A5 format. Before I knew it I was downloading in error and now have it on my Computer!

Help!!!


If you have a recent computer - such as ME/2000/XP Then it is good news. You wont need the disk i infact I tell folk the best place for the disk is in the box - just dont take it out. And if it has been intalled - uninstall it Windows can do very well without. Just plug in the camera, set it up to upload The Camera/Scanner Wizard will come up and ask you all sorts of meaningful questions.

Drivers!


If you have a Windows computer the reason you cannot find a driver is because it does not need one. If you have put software from the supplied disk in - remove it. Reboot the computer Plug the camera in switched to the upload position Windows will then put op the camera/scanner Wizard and you can take it from there
