Do you really need the USB cable?

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. And even if you have to buy a card reader, it won't cost you much more than just a cable.

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Lost the software to my vivitar vivicam 5100


I have the same problem, I have sent numerous emails to Vivitar support and never got any replies.
I called them directly and they told me that they are not offering any support / driver for this particular model.
Next time you buy a camera, leave Vivitar's models on the shelf.

When I turn on my vivicam 5022 it just starts snaping pictures. No matter what button I push it snaps pictures. Now it will not let me download any pictures to my computer through the usb cable. The camera...


If you can get into the menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, try this...remove the card and batteries...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes....insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. As for downloading pics, the easiest way is to use a card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop.

Lost USB cable, where can I purchase the correct one?


Hi,
Just buy the cable from the retailer store where you bought you camera. Maybe they have the spare parts for it as support equipments for the items they sell.
Or you may buy it to any store selling cellphones or cameras. They are actually universal cables. May be you can find there its match. If the cable port matches the universal USB standard many supplies can be found in any malls.

I NEED THE DRIVER FOR MY CAMERA PLEASE


Vivitar Vivicam 5100 USB Mass Storage Device Driver Windows 98.
Note: Windows Me/2000/XP, Mac OS X, and Desktop LX users do not require any driver software for this camera."

This lets Windows98 get at the pictures stored on the camera, but doesn't let the Vivicam 5100 work as a webcam, even in windows 98.

My guess is that the driver is hard to find because it doesn't exist. :-(

While I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news,
We could always use the help. ;-)

Good luck,

The vivicam 5100 doesn't require additional software ones the camera is connected you can find - look - copy - delete your pictures by opening the camera drive from my computer, ones connected it should appear as a new disk there.

Vivitar does not list the 5100 on their site. You can however, get the drivers and manual for the 5150 here:
