I had the same problem just this morning...but I fixed it!

If you have manipulated any of the files on your camera...by opening them on your computer and modifying them...then the camera won't decode them. This is because the dimensions change and exceed the dimensions of the camera. Try returning your pictures in your camera file to their original state and saving it to the camera. Don't forget to delete the ones that don't work. This should work.

Need a driver for my Sanyo VPC-S500 digital camera. Unable to locate disk with the driver on it.


You may not need a driver for this camera. I assume you are using a computer with Windows installed.

  1. Go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
  2. Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
  3. Select USB
  4. Select PC

Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.

Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show.

You should be able to double click on the icon to open the files on your camera and copy them to your computer.

Sanyo VPC-5500 says "card locked"


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I cannot down load my pictures onto my computer


Are you getting some sort of an error? It may be that you have your memory card on read only mode.
