Re: vivicam 5386 copying images to memory card

To copy pictures from memory to your memory card turn your camera on and press the button above the menu button. This will start showing the pictures already on your memory card. Next, press menu and the down arrow. This down arrow is located on the round button with the "OK" in the center. Your choices should be DELETE, SLIDE SHOW, PROTECT, QUALITY CHANGE, RESIZE, and the one that you want,COPY TO CARD. Press OK and the camera will copy pictures from internal memory to the memory card. This information is on page EN-62 and EN-63. I know that this works because I was testing the information as I was typing it!

I purchases a vivitar vivicam 8025. Unfortunately the instructions got thrown away. I've only taken a few pics and the camera says "memory full insert sd memory card to transfer and take more...

You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at

The camera needs a memory card in order to save pictures. You can take pictures without one and view them on the screen, but those pictures are lost when you turn the camera off.

I took pictures on my camera without a memory card can i still download my pictures

I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera, the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores the internal memory.

There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.

  • To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.

  • The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.

Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will only see the contents of the memory\picture card.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.

How to load photos taken from sony cybershot w50 to my comouter

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in transferring images from the Camera to the Computer. Once you connect the Camera to the computer, you will get the Camera as a removable drive under My Computer. You can open the removable drive to see the pictures stored in the Camera/Memory Card.

If the Operating System installed in your Computer still needs a driver, you may use the Memory Card slot on the Computer to transfer the pictures. Please follow the steps to transfer pictures using Memory Card Reader in the Computer:

- Remove the Memory Card from the Camera.

- Insert it in the Memory Card slot in the Computer.

- Open the pop up window or find out the removable drive under My Computer.

- Copy the required files to a folder in the Computer.

DCIM folder contains the images.

Note : Most of the Notebooks comes with its own Memory Card Slot. If it does not, you may get one from the market without much spending.

Thanks for understanding.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How do i transfer pictures from my computer to my vivicam 8025 camera?

You'll need to use a card reader. Once your memory card is in the reader, it will appear to your computer as another hard drive. Simply copy the desired pictures from your computer to the memory card.
Be aware that if you've done any editing on the pictures (opening a picture in a photo editor and saving it without doing any changes counts as editing) then the camera probably will not be able to display the picture.

"How Do I get My Pictures?"

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.

I would look in your manual on this one. I am not familiar with a camera without a memory card. Are you sure there isn't one in it?

It sound like the USB jack has a broken connection inside your camera. You should be able to purchase a Card Reader and then just remove your memory chip from the camera and use the Card Reader to transfer your pictures to the computer. I doubt that you will find any one willing to take the camera apart and repair the jack. I have seen this happen with my Creative Labs MP3 Player. That was much more simpler to take apart than a camera. If you decide to go into your camera, you will need at least a double ought (0-0) or maybe a triple ought (0-0-0) phillilps screwdriver. Good Luck
