Do you really need a driver?

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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: Can't find driver compatible with windows vista for D-540 Zoom

Weird.. I got this same camera secondhand as a gift without a driver or anything, and didn't need one...just plugged the USB in my computer's USB port (and its not even the original USB, found one that happened to fit the camera in my junk drawer!) And it uploads pics just fine.. I didn't need a driver, apparently the software is built into the camera itself so I didn't have to install a thing. (my camera the Olympus D-540 zoom, 3.2 MP with "Camedia" above the model # on the front). Then again, we have a brand-new comp (HP) so it has the latest version of Vista so maybe that makes a difference... Anyway It works for me without a driver installed, good luck!

I have a Hyundai computer with a Microsoft windows XP 2005. It reads off line & I'am unable to install my AVG pc cleaner


Your operating system Win XP is too far out of date. You have Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10, between you and the present day. All support for XP finished 3 years ago.

After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for Windows XP. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware and help keep users and their data safer.

You need to update to Win 7 at least, but really, you need a new computer and Windows 10. Your computer hardware is due to fail at any time soon. If you get 10 years, you are really lucky.

I don't have the usb cord that came with the camera, cannot find driver on line and after market cable not recognized, how can I upload to lap top Windows 10?


Contact Fuji customer services for help, advice and possibly the drivers and/or cable that you need. The camera is, however, eleven years old, so they may not have what you require anymore. It takes an xD media card, but you may be able to get a USB card reader that can accommodate that.

Can I use alohabob to go from Windowsxp to Windows 10


You might be able to move specific applications or software from a Windows XP computer to a Windows 10 computer, using that software. But you cannot go from Windows XP to 10 on the same computer. The hardware of the Windows XP machine, unless you downgraded the OS from Windows 7 or 8 to XP, was NOT designed to work with a operating system higher than XP. You can only upgraded a Windows 7 or 8 computer to Windows 10 (not that you would want to as the Windows 10 system is useless junk).


One of the reason that Microsoft offered the Windows 10 free was that people using 7 would not ditch their old computers to buy a new one fitted with windows 10. However to get around the problem of not having new hardware. They had to fudge and bodge the Windows 10 software to make it work on hardware designed for Windows 7.
So basically it's rubbish because corners were cut.

Is there a driver available for Windos 10?


This is a relatively old device. Creative no longer supports it. On their website, the last driver update was in Sept. 2007. This provided support for Windows VISTA. Now, VISTA drivers often worked under Windows 7. Some even worked under Windows 8. I am providing the link to the driver download so you can try it if you wish. You may be able to get it to load using Windows VISTA or Windows 7 compatibility mode if it won't install directly under Windows 10.

I downloaded Windows Advisor on my computer to see if my HP Pavilion a620n could support Windows 7. It told me that my Graphics Driver would not support Windows 7. (the it also told me that my Graphi


that PC is now retired. its no longer supported. (retired says HP)
just asked for you.
i went to the advisor page and it show no support for any A620
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers
shows no support exists. period.
this PC is why over 10 years old
and has PATA hard drives, (long off tooth old)
and AGP slot for adding video, empty right?

there are many Net frames , not one. most PC to run may apps
need most of those not just 1 or 2. a fact.

most good apps that needs netframe ,ver.x loads it first .
facts.

WHAT that is the VIA thing.
i dug and dug and found a data sheet on a620n
hard to find it. but seems that is the ON BOARD Video chips
(GPU) used by HP, on board mother board, and jack same place.
its not a AGP slot card.
rumor has it (google)
A7V8X-LA (Kelut) mobo , 13 years old , it is.
uses, KM400a and VT8237 chips from VIA
the km400a drives the VGA jack and the AGP slot.
per this page
https://www.viatech.com/en/silicon/legacy/chipsets/km400a/

to there, click support click drivers
oops there never ways a w7 driver, for KM400
that means whom ever put w7 there, , killed the video dead.
doing that bad act.

your PC came new with what. XP ! never w7
so someone put on W7, id bet cash they did not use HP windows 7 media kit to do that, so that means the whole OS is not supported by HP, now. and for sure the card.

that leaves you with only these possibilities
1: only microsoft can help ever use device manager? and up date mode there, and be connected to the internet.?
this is 100% MS, plug and play mode , zero HP help here\
this all fails because Via never produced this drive..



2: go to VIA and get it from the chip maker.(did and fails)

4: buy new AGP card at say Newegg and make sure its w7 supported?
5: go to HP forum we are not them. and beg for your driver.

your not the first to ask.

I have a ibm 10/100 etherjet cardbus adapter and am trying to get it up and working on my laptop that is running windows 7. Previously when i was running windows xp it work perfect but since i installed...


Unfortunately, this adapter is 10 years old and Microsoft and IBM have decided that you've used this network adapter for quite long enough and you need to buy a new one.
Microsoft and IBM have not and probably won't provide drivers for Windows 7 for this adapter. I looked at the Lenovo/IBM web site, and the last version of Windows that was supported by IBM was Windows XP. There are no drivers listed for Vista, so I'm very certain that there will be no drivers for Windows 7.
This is what is known as "planned obsolescence"

I question your use of the word 'new' to describe a Win 7 computer, and with a camcorder that old, it will be impossible to find drivers for any OS later than XP.

ACPI BIOS not fully compliant


w8000 a very old PC not supported by HP.
windows 2000 support ended like 15 years ago.. W2k. is gone. w2k only runs on very old pcs with very old ACPI
(power controls is that)

this PC is only supported with XP
never 2000.
HP tells you that if you looked.
park the 2000 disk or use it as frezzbee. IMO

id get w7 disk and use that, it might work.
but will cost you a license from MS,
about 5 times the value of w8000

why not just go here, and get used $20 w7 pc
save a bundle of case and grief messing with any legacy junk....avoid legacy junk and win.

Web cam doesnt work on my laptop


Hi soleillee,

Yeah this is most likely a driver problem. You see the drivers from windows xp wont work with windows vista. It is very likely that your camera was not made with vista drivers if it is more than a year old. Unfortunately without a windows vista drivers your camera wont work. so you have two options:

1- find out if the camera has a vista drivers and install them
2- buy a new camera ( i know its frustrating)

And if i may recommend the logitech cameras, they are sturdy and the mid range ones have great picture, and best of all there tech support is easy to find when you want a new driver.
