First things first - gather all of your pictures together and save them in a folder such as My Documents, My Pictures. That way you will be ready to burn them when the time comes.

The good news: Windows 98 is not too outdated! You will need three things:

1. A CD or DVD drive capable of recording, commonly called a R/W (read and write) drive.

2. You will need blank CDs or DVDs to write or burn you pictures on.

3. You will need software to perform the writing or burning of the pictures onto the blank disks. Do a Google or other search for "Windows 98 Free CD Burner" or "DVD Burner". There are many freeware and shareware programs available, there is no need for anything as big or complicated as Nero.

The bad news is: Windows 98 no longer gets any updates as of 2006. The program was riddled with vulnerabilities in its hey day but updates helped. You are leaving yourself wide open to a LOT of malicious hackers, especially if you are not using some form of anti-virus and spam software that you run a full scan with at least every week. It's like being intimate with hundreds of women without using a condom, believing not one of them could possibly have aids. Best of luck.

Hope this helps. If it does, please leave feedback.

Yes it is possible to burn them to a disc. Or the simplest way is get a USB flash drive and save them all there.

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.

Hi,

You can send pictures from your phone to an email address via the following methods:

1. You can transfer the picture to your pc via bluetooth if it is enabled on your pc and phone, or you can transfer to your pc via usb if your phone has a usb port.

Can't get digital pictures to download from hardrive to cd


How big are the image files you are transferring? Do you have a CD Burner or a DVD burner and are you using the appropriate blank discs? Are the pictures in the right format? Let me know if you need me to convert anything for you or if you want me to burn the images to a disc and sent to you. Ambrias Company

Vista Driver for JVC Camcorder GR-DV900


Hi,
      Unfortunatley your answer is within your question, in which you say it only came with Driver Support for Win 98, 2000 & XP, basically meaning that your Camcorder is not compatible with Windows Vista.
      The only 3 Possible choices you have are to 

1. Use a friend's PC who has XP installed, and Transfer the Files through using their System.

2. Remove Windows Vista, and Install Windows XP

or 

3. Wait until your Camcorder is supported by Windows Vista.

I seriously should not wait for Option 3 though, as I've had a Philips Webcam for over 2-3 yrs now, and is still not supported by Windows Vista.

CD Burning gets stuck


Try this: : Decreasing the burn speed If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)
  1. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  2. Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
  3. Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
  4. Click OK and close the My Computer window. Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6. If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
  1. Place a blank disc into the drive. NOTE: If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
  2. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  3. Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
  4. If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc. If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps. Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive c00368150.gif
  5. Look for a Recording tab: If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
    2. Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
    3. Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
    4. Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
    5. With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane. Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW) c01367502.jpg
    6. Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs. NOTE: A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
    7. Click OK , and close Registry Editor.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
