Vivitar 508nhd firmware upgrade?

Granted its a $25 camera it has 480,720, and 1080 video all three are terribly "grainy". I know its probably due to a cheap processer, but I was wondering if there is a firmware update or upgrade available.

Sorry, there is no firmware upgrade available, nor is there a way to upgrade the camera even if one were available.

SOURCE: Although USB Mode is set to MASS STORAGE, still max out at 28MB

be more clear ...what is the relation you want to do ....from what I understood...you have a vivitar camera...( web or digital shooting pics??)
what about the disc?? is a memory stick you want to use?? or a sd memo inside the cam ...
the problem must be from the camera than ...cause you do not have to set any of the settings you done ...
you just make your pictures and when you want to download into the pc ...just plug it in ...and the pc will recognize the memory card ..as a removable storage device....
or if you have the drivers from camera ...install them and the programs from the disc and the choices will be multiple ..
I know i didnt been clear enough ...and you can also ask me more on yahoo at catalin_yo_vlad
Good luck !

SOURCE: how do I release vivitar vivicam 25 photos?

Hook your digital hd video camera up to your computer, & turn it on. If that dialog box doesn't appear, open Windows Explorer, and see if it shows up (it might show up as "Removable Drive"). If so, drag & drop the files from your camera to your HD.

Vivitar DVR 508NHD manual is not the same as the 508 manual which everyone keeps listing. The camera isn't set up the same. Where can I find the actual manual for DVR 508NHD - this is so frustrating?


Manuals online say they have them for download but after download it was a DVR 508 HD
Only thing I can suggest is buy another with a manual in the package

My camcorder is not showing up on the pc


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download videos and 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 videos and pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.

Vivitar 508nhd wont work when SD card put in


Are you sure you have an SD card (2GB or smaller)? The 508 won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.
