Just got a new computer with windows 7 and when loading the disc to install it says not compatable with this version of windows is there a fix for this?

The disc is compatible with some outdated Windows operating systems...Windows 98/ME/2000. This is not much of a camera but as long as you use a memory card with it, you can use a card reader to download any pictures you take.

You may not be able to locate drivers for a Windows 98 machine. Use a separate card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can do what you want with them. Make sure the card reader is compatible with windows 98.

Have olympus fe-210

Unfortunately this camera is not compatible with either of those operating systems. The firmware in the camera was designed to only run with Windows 2000,XP or Vista operating systems. The operating systems you mention do not have the necessary USB support to even get the camera to be detected.

Can I use the PDC 700 with Windows Me?

The PDC 700 camera TWAIN driver is not 100% compatible with Windows Me because it does not support USB downloads. No new driver software is available from Polaroid -- however, a compatible TWAIN driver is available from a third-party source. The Pretec DC-800 is the functional equivalent of Polaroid's PDC 700. Pretec's DC-800 Setup Disk for Windows 95/98/ME/2000 is available for download at its online Driver Download Center. Testing done by Polaroid has shown that this driver works with the PDC 700 using the listed operating systems, including Windows Me. When accessing the camera with image editing software compatible with the computer's operating system, the camera driver appears as Digital Camera 1024X768 Driver.
