    May be a silly question but do I need to download all of these files on the link you posted? My pc tells me that it doesn't recognise the file and that I need to find a program to run it - it's taking ages to download one so don't want to download all of them if it isn't going to work. Thanks

    Current using Vista Business but when I connect my Panasonic DV camera through the firewire, the PC does not recognize the camera.

    My laptop is a Asus F3H with build in firewirs.

    I have a Vista computer. I cannot even install the software that came with my Panasonic PV-GS300 camcorder to enable me to download and install the updates that are on line for the MotionDV Studio. What do I do? I cannot return the camcorder because it is a year old. These are the sites I have downloaded trying to fix the problem.

    I also tried the site you guys suggested,http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/so... this didn't even let me download a thing. Surely this cannot be such input error on my part?!!! But I hope so!! :0)

    Thanks,

I HAVE THE same problem. VISTA fuckin sucks. What you have to do is switch back to xp or whatever you were using. I'll have you know i have the same problem with my dvx-100 and pd-150. OR buy a few different types of FIREWIRE cables. sometimes the cables die or are just unclean. WORST case scenario is you broke your USB port in the computer or worse, on ur camera!


Hope this helps

Well vista has a few disadvantages i would say out of which the major one is "Compatability of Softwares"..only original softwares can be installed in it whereas few versions of original software cant even be installed in it..Hope you were using Windows Xp in your old computer..

So please mention what software you require to install so that i will try to search and put it up here for u..

Thank you!!..

Driver for Pretec DC-300 Digital Camera for Windows Vista


Try this:

Uninstall the driver (if installed). Next, put in the driver CD and browse to the setup.exe file. Right click and select properties. In the box that opens, select compatibilty tab and select the box next to "runthis program in compatibilty mode for" and select XP SP2. and install the program

Should that not work, uninstall and retry the above process, but select Windows 98 or 2000 this time..Hopefully that will work.

If it still does not work, then unfortunately, you will either have to downgrade to XP (I believe the driver works for XP) or buy a new camera altogether..

The camera doesn't care what operating system you're using on 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.

I just purchased a Dell Studio Hybrid and tried to install my 6 year old Chameleon Mega driver. It tells me the software was found, however when I click on the Chameleon logo, a message "device not found"...


The software/drivers from the older Chameleon Mega camera is most likely having a compatibility issue with the newer operating system and hardware of your DELL computer.

With XP and especially Vista, whatever drivers and software are installed, it is very important that it is designed for these newer operating systems and computers.

You should contact the tech support for your Chameleon Mega camera to see if it is still supported for upgraded software and drivers. Something that is six years old is considered ancient when it comes to electronics and computers.

Vista?


Yes.
Here's the website regarding the camera's software for Vista.

http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn026247.jhtml?operatingSystem=windows_vista&downloadLanguage=en

Install this software first.. then plug in camera.
If you have another software tha manages pictures on your computer (like Roxio, Adobe, Picasa, Vista, Microsoft Office) The kodak software WILL attempt to take over the management of your photos on that computer. Just a heads up. :)

Have fun!

I have a R607 Digital Camera that I have been using on my windows XP computer. That computer is not running well anymore, it is getting old. I would like to install the R607 Digital Camera on my Vista...


My father in law had a computer with XP and this exact camera. He had a nice little system. His son bought him a laptop that uses Vista. I found this link so that you will be able to use the R607 camera with the Vista software.
