Question about Vivitar ViviCam 6150s Digital Camera

Not recognized by pc

Running Win Vista Home Premium...just bought this camera prior to purchasing new pc. The camera isn't recognized by any program, or at all for that matter. My old junker camera info pops right up, as do the older cameras we have. I've redownloaded the drivers, and still no help. I contacted Vivitar itself and never heard anything back from them.

I had the same problem. Evidently, this camera is not vista compatible. My way was to buy several SD cards, be sure to format the sd card/s thru the onscreen menu of the camera itself, take your pics, then remove the sd card from the camera and slip it into your sd card reader on your pc, or use a usb card reader and slip that into the usb port.
I have my camera disc, but for some reason I've never been able to get my pc to recognize the camera download thru the usb port with the supplied firewire.

Im running Vista Ultimate - I get the same problem. Just try to install/re-install the driver. It's how I got it to work, but after every connection you gotta do it again. My guess is this camera isn't Vista certified. You can always buy a memory card and use that for the pictures.

How do i free up ram

Crtl-Atl-Del and kill / end any unwanted processes.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

the problem is that windows 7 is not compatible with Print-Master premier 7.0

Sony Vaio running Vista Home Premium has stoped

Sony Vaio is one of the most unreliable laptops known to man, and some known to monkeys. My suggestion- save everything you want on cds/dvds and reload whendoze. After that, send it back to Sony if you can.

Vista and firewire 1394?

Firewire works fine under Vista, but it's quite possible your USB to Firewire bridge doesn't have proper Vista drivers. You wouldn't expect Vista to include these, they would be installed from a disc that came with your adaptor. USB to Firewire is a questionable option at best... there are often problems with it. You may be better off with a PC-Card or ExpressCard solution, if the laptop is your only computer.

Also, when the camera says "DV IN", it's expecting video from the PC to be sent to it, it's not in capture mode. Most camcorders must be in either "play" mode, or a special "link to PC" mode in order to even be recognized by Windows (any version) as a video input device.

However, until you resolve the issue of supporting your Firewire device in Vista, nothing the camcorder does will be an issue yet. You should check the documentation that came with your USB to Firewire device, the driver disc, etc. for information on Vista support.
