For the software, you can go the link and download it to your computer. As for the USB cable...I don't know if it is a generic micro usb to usb. Any camera shop will be able to confirm the correct cable needed.

The downloading software to my vivitar dvr 840xhd came broken. how can i get another program? or can i download it from the internet directly?

you should still have the download link, try re-downloading and installing again, sometimes the files get corrupted during the download process. If you have trouble fiding the link to the download go to the Vivitar site and find the download area and enter your model number, you can redownload from there.

How do you recharge camera battery? camera manual is not clear abot how to hook up battery charger or even where it is!

The easiest way is by using a standard USB cable...plug the small end of the USB cable into your camera (located under the headphone jack) then plug the larger end of the USB cable into your PC or laptop. Turn on your computer & this will charge up your Vivitar 550.

I do not have the sofware to make work on my computer i broke the disk by mistake

You will need to "install" the software on your PC. Run the "setup.exe" program from your CD to do this.

You will also need to connect your camera with an USB cable to your PC to transfer pictures to and from PC.

Here´s a manual and software download site for DVR-550 . Send them a request.
