Question about Vivitar MAGNACAM Binocular

Error message, cannot connect to camera

I may be repeating myself here but my screen went blank and i dont know if I processed the question.
We received Vivitar Camera Binocular (10x25) for xmas. I have loaded the software from the CD to my computer (MSW XP) However when I connect the camera to the computer. I immediately get a message that says cannot connect to camera! Why what's wrong. Do I need another download or an upgrade?

    I've not received an answer to my question listed above (my computer says it cannot connect to the camera.) I did receive an invitation to BUY the answer. That doesnt seem right as this is a new product never used by me or anyone. I would expect Vivitar to answer my questions without "paying them". Doesn't Vivitar stand behind their products? Is there a "hotline" numbet to call Vivitar?



    Please respond.

    yes I have the same problem with the cannot connect camera and I m not happy, being that I bought these for my husband and he used them on a trip and we cannot get the photos. I have tried loading on three different computers with the same message.

    I know that you cant plug the camera in first. that is not the reason for the problem.

    However I did find something else that makes no sense but it happened.

    My grandson said to go out to my computer on control panel and see if I could tell the computer to read the camera connection and forget the "My Camera" installed software. So I tried that and it didnt seem to work. However later when I decided to try again after rebooting the system, I did not open any software just plugged in the camera and suddenly a "found new hardware" message popped up on my screen and asked if I wanted to set it up. So i did and then I had my pictures. Weird. but I still had a problem as once I got them on the computer I could not figure out how to delete them from the camera. But at least I could see and print the pictures, which were not that great but that's probably my fault.

Uninstall the Photoimpression and Camera Driver software. Reinstall software and reboot. Connect camera USB cable to a DIFFERENT USB port. Connect camera/binocular to USB cable. New Hardware Wizard should recognize it. It worked for me!!

"no disc" message but there is disc in camera - huh?!


HI, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I PURCHASED A BOX OF 30 DISCS THAT WERE FORMATED. I FOUND THAT 12 WOULD GET THE "NO DISC" MESSAGE. SO I WENT AND FORMATED THEM MYSELF ON MY COMPUTER, AND NOW ONLY 2 ARE NOT WORKING. I HAVE TWO OF THESE CAMARAS AND FOUND THAT ON BOTH THE "NO DISC" MESSAGE WOULD COME UP, SO FOR ME I KNOW BOTH OF MY CAMARAS ARE ALRIGHT, THAT IT IS SOMETHING WITH THE DISC.
