Re: need driver for this camera for windows 98


You'll have to explain what you want to do? If you want to download your images, you don't need a driver, just attach a Windows 98 compatible card reader to your USB port and download your pictures to your favorite photo manager. You should be able to attach your camera via USB, and if the USB drivers detect the camera's disk, then a new drive will appear your My Computer.

If you have Windows 98 Second Edition, you should be set to go, if you have Windows 98 First Edition (where it doesn't say Second Edition in the My Computer properties), you'll have a tougher time with the USB connections. It would be best to upgrade your machine, or find the Windows 98 SE upgrade from a friend.

The CD that came with the camera will have the necessary software for Windows 98 SE.

What have you tried to do? What isn't working? Let me know some details and I'll help you out.

Hope these ideas help. Clarify some things and I can give you a more narrow answer.

Drivers for nikon coolpix L20 cam


I'm sorry there are no drivers for this camera, no one is making them for windows 98, windows xp and newer come with the software build in.

I'll save you some time and fustration, take the camera - memory card to a local camera shop or a photo place where they can print them out or burn them to a CD, then you can view them on your computer from the CD.

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..

Not uploading pictures

I think I know what the problem is, first off the computer must be able to communicate with the
camera/device irregardless of the drivers. The camera is plug and play and so is the computer
unless you are using an older version of windows like 98 or 98 second edition. If you are 98 etc load
the old drivers. But if you are 2000, millineum, or xp then the drivers are automatic for the usb ports.
The panasonic dmc-fz7 is kind of a freak in that it is not a true plug and play device. Sometimes
you have to declare the new hardware. It may have once worked but for what ever reason the hardware may not jive with what the pc thinks it sees if anything at all.
Solution: Go into the Control panel , add hardware wizard, with the camera hooked up to the usb
port and the camera turned on. In the device manager you should get the appropriate message, "new hardware detected" actually it should say dmc-fz7 etc. From there it should be apparent that things are working normally....Good luck. Probably a power glitch or who knows. Mostly its a problem with panasonic plug and play software which they corrected a year or so later with the newer cameras...

DX3500 Kodak software will not run in Windows Vista

Use a memory card in the camera, then use a generic USB memory card reader to transfer your pictures off the memory card. Camera USB cord drivers are always a pain to use.

Problem with transfering images onto my Windows 98

you might have to remove the driver in safe mode of windows 98.

then reinstall the drivers for the camera after removal.

also look in the control panel for add/remove program and look for your camera drivers

if they are there remove them, and reinstall the drivers.

also there are some computer where the usb port could be failing, try the camera on another computer, but i really would suggest a card reader for camera, since it take away the wear and tear of the camera by hooking it up and turning it on for transferring the files. i just use a card reader, and just used the camera to take pictures.

Windows 98 Driver required for sony cyber-shot dsc-w35

Windows 98 is not officially supported by Sony for the DSC-W35. You can find hacked versions on the web but they may not be stable. You can find a list of supported Operating Systems here at the Sony website.

I would suggest trying to use the Windows ME drivers. Windows ME was based on Windows 98 so the drivers for most applications are virtually identical. I have used 8 different drivers from other vendors in situations like this and it worked out fine. However, please be aware that since it is not officially supported it can cause interoperability options with your Windows 98 system.

This is the best suggestion I have. By no means should you get Windows ME, it was one of the worst versions of Windows released. Lots of bugs and there are less drivers for this operating system than your Windows 98.
