I have both the manual and driver. I also have a firmware update to make it 1.10

It says Traveler but this camera was made under at least 2 brands from the company in China. Optimus and Traveler. Both are part number 16-3899 but are model DV-5040



Firmware Update **read instructions that come with it** I'm not responsible.

Drivers for Optimus DV-3040 please

Unfortunately because this camcorder is actually manufactured by a company that sells it with many names it is going to be difficult to find drivers. Try plugging it into your computer and letting Windows do the work for you. It may be able to find a generic driver set for you.

If this doesn't work, the Optimus brand is sold by radio shack. Contact them and see if they can send you a replacement disk for the software.

Don't know how to sync music to it

View the Optimus DV-3040 User Manual here.
Use the device as a removable storage device with windows explorer, don't use media plaer or anything else to 'synchronize" it.
