Question about Vivitar MAGNACAM Binocular

1 Answer

Can't download photos. Computer goes into safe mode.

I connected my binocs to the USB cable. When I click on "My Camera" my computer goes into Safe mode and a window pops up and says that there is nothing in the camera. I have made 3 photos and the binoc screen shows I have 17 remaining. Why can't it find the photos? I am beginning to get the impression that Vivitar has created a piece of junk and not giving decent instructions and troubleshooting solutions in their short-on-info operations manual.

I have not got the binoc here to check, but if it is a small USB connector, it may be the small one used by Panasonic cameras - go to a camera store and ask if you can try a cable from a Panasonic

I need the wire for my computer and the cd to download the software

The camera takes a cable with a mini usb connector on one end and the regular usb computer connector on the other end. It is a fairly common cable for some digital cameras and other items to connect to a pc. You can purchase at Best Buy, Ritz camea, and Walmart.

No pictures??

This sounds like the same problem I had. I could not find a solution without losing the photos that I had already taken. Try reseting the camera. In the menu clear all the photos out of memory. If the picture counter doesn't reset you may need to physically kill power to the camera (by pulling out the batteries) this will delete any photos in memory and reset the photo counter. Once you are sure that the memory is empty. Try taking some test photos and reconecting to the computer to see if the software sees the new photos. You may want to delete and reload the camera drivers before you connecting the camera.
