    What a bummer - camera works great but not if you want to get the pictures off of it. Plug in, turn on, check Computer...nothing.

    YES I just purchased a Toshiba satelite laptop and couldn't get Vista to let me open the camera. I done everything, talked to someone for more than a half hour, finally told me to buy a new camera. It does recognize the camera, but I can not get the pictures out or work within the camera in anyway. My desk top with XP brings up a window when the camera is plugged into the USB, with options of where to put the pics.

If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software


After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon printers are not Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.

Good day, I need the software for Sony DSC-S500 to download the photos from the camera to my computor

Sony does not show any available drivers for this camera.

If Vista recognized the camera you may not need drivers.

Turn-on the camera and put it in "playback" mode.
(playback mode is when the camera is set to view photos on the LCD).

Plug in the USB cable to the camera and the computer.

Then use something like My Computer or Windows Explorer
(or whatever Vista calls them now),
and look for a new hard drive.
If you find a new hard drive, that will be the camera.

I have lost my installation Cd for my digital rebel XT (canon) I downloaded the driver from Canon. com but computer will still not find the device?? When I try in Media Center, it shuts down the program???...

Bet you have Vista on your new computer. If so, it's a Windows Vista issue. Go to Canon's website and get and install the updated drivers for your camera. Here's the link (select Drivers and Download, then select Windows Vista, then look for, download, and install the driver for Windows Vista.

And if you end up pulling your hair out further fiddling with Vista, please see the following for a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos:

You don't need a driver.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Vivitar vivicam 5100

Well, this is a new one for me. Do you still have the same photo software? Open up whatever you do have and click on help and unloading camera or something similar. There must be a way.

If you don't have any photo software, I would go to www.tucows and search for freeware photo software -that is compatible with vista and download something there to use.

Alternatively You could simply open up my computer click on the camera drive and open it to see the photos then selct all>copy then go somewhere and create a new folder to paste them into. Then go back anddelte them off your camera. YOu'll still need a photo proggy. I'll bet you have one though. Have a look at everything on your hard and see what you have.

Che-ez foxz camera

The Foxz3 drivers aren't configured for Vista (only mentions Windows 98, 2000 and XP on the original box). However, you can grab your pix by treating the Foxz3 as a mass storage device (in MSDC mode - not PC Camera). Worked fine for downloading my daughter's pix onto our Vista laptop. Not so hot for videoclips though.
