Re: wont install

Forget the CD Rom
This suggests you are running a PC with XP and it is not a signatured software.
Windows however can download images without the software
Just plug it in and let Windoes do the work

Can't find my installation disk.

You could try to look it up on

Most computers newer than 10 year old have plug and play. Which means they automatically recognize new things plugged in and make the necessary drivers automatically.

(Make sure you have an internet connection when you plug it in, because your PC may download driver materials automatically)

Try plugging in the camera and wait to see what the computer does. If a small window opens at the lower right saying device or camera was installed correctly, you will then be able to access the camera like just another hard drive on your system.

Open My Computer or Explorer and it will appear with all the other hard drives like:
OS (C:)
DVD/CD-RW-Drive (E:)
and so on...
the camera will appear as another new drive (letter:)
You can then open and navigate the folders on the camera select (highlight) photo's you wish to keep and drag them to the folder on your C: drive where you store pictures, or for most people: My Documents / My Pictures.

If you are on a MAC computer good luck, I don't know if they have plug and play?

I personally don't ever load installation disks as long as my computer recognizes the camera or device. Extra software on installation CD's take up more space and often ad stuff to your computers start up which then makes your computer slower by running the software all the time. With plug and play you only use computer processing as needed (when it's plugged in)

I bought a new camera a vivitar 25 and I dont have a cd port and I cant download the software how do I get it

I see ..the easiest way if you do have the cd but not a cd rom to run to put the cd into another computer and copy it on a memory stick (flash drive)...I assume that at least a USB port you have ...after that run the driver from the usb stick ...and install it ...plug the camera and thats all..
if this have any impediment let me know and I will link a download location for you ...but my advice is that the original driver is still the best choice if the camera is new...yu probably have the disk and the driver and software needed on ..follow my instructions and is the fastest and best choice..

I just purchased a Digital Concepts 7.1 MegaPixel Camera w/a 2.4" Preview Screen. It came with a software installation disk for PhoTags Express. The CD says it fits any standard PC CD Rom Drive, but the CD...

My daughter assisted me with turning the tower over so it layed flat on the floor. We were then able to insert the disk & upload the Photags Express software.

The soft ware up date

I don't have enough information on your problem, to give you an intelligent answer, but if you are like me, and had purchased the camera with the original CD1 and CD2 disks, like I did back in 2001, the year when Agfa discontinued supporting their digital cameras and flatbed scanners, my CL18 was just about 1/2 off the normal price, and I figure that's why it was on sale, no support for it anymore, so the driver for WIN95/98/OSR2/WIN-XP was the last driver available, and I "suspect" that you're talking about the installation process, and if that's so, maybe I can help out.
I used the CL18 on a computer that came with WIN-XP Media Center Edition 2002, but this computer, which I bought after the other computer died on me, had WIN-Vista on it, so in order to use the CL18 digital camera to import pictures to the computer, I needed to remove WIN-Vista, which I kept on a set of Recovery disks, in case I ever want to put that back unto the computer, and I had purchased WIN-XP with Service Pack 1 on it back in 2002 I think it was, so I put WIN-XP on this computer, but I needed to download WIN-XP drivers for my computer hardware first, otherwise I may not have been able to access the Internet after installing WIN-XP to download drivers least the modem or DSL Cable/Modem drivers, and motherboard drivers, maybe the sound drivers and video drivers, etc. Get copies of them first for the computer that you're removing WIN-Vista from before installing WIN-XP...Maybe placing the drivers onto a CD or DVD maybe, or another hard drive, like I did with my external hard drive, which WIN-XP will "see," but WIN95 couldn't see.

When I ran the installation process with the CD that came with the CL18 camera, I saw the message where it stated that it was updating DCOM95, and/or that it couldn't update DCOM95, it also stated that the installation failed, or something like that, and if that's what you are talking about, then I'll let you know that all I did was to click on "Allow change," or whatever the message shows, but that was in the Spybot software, so if you run or use Spybot, and have the Spybot-SD Resident icon in the system tray, then go ahead and click on "Allow change," or whatever the choice is, then click on the message you see from the CL18 installation disk and let the computer reboot with the CL18 installation disk still in the CD/DVD ROM drive. 
The installation should finish ok after the reboot if you kept the CD in the CD-ROM drive.
If you can't import pictures, like using the Corel Photo House 5 software that came with my CL18 camera, then you need to make sure that the Corel Photo House 5 software isn't using your webcam driver for example and you need to choose the Twain Driver in Corel Photo House 5 software before importing pictures. 
In a couple of other posts I say how to get the Corel Photo House software to import pictures. The process of doing it the first time, after the first time, Corel Photo House 5 will use the same driver each time you start the software up, unless you choose another driver to import from another source, like a webcam for example, but basically, do the following for importing pictures:
Start Corel Photo House 5; Click on "Load photos from a digital camera;" Click on "Select source;" Click on "ePhoto CL18 TWAIN Driver [UI];" Click on "Select;" Click on "Proceed"
If the CL18 camera is plugged into the computer and turned on you should be all set to import pictures.
Anyway, the main thing is that "if" you're talking about the setup process in WIN-XP, you'll get the error message that says that it can't update DCOM95, or something like that, and it will say that the installation failed, but just click the choice there and the computer will reboot and the installation should complete, at least it did for me anyway.
One time I did need to reinstall using the Add Hardware way of doing that, and in that process it showed the CL18 driver as an available driver, and choosing that driver on the list of available drivers allowed the re-installation to work, and I needed to do that one time when I couldn't access the pictures in the camera even though the camera had previously been installed.
Hope that helps, Bernie

If you have a driver disk:
Install the driver. After conect the camera.
If not working use the manual select, driver cd, brose while find someting similar name with your camera.inf on the disk and use this file when windows ask about the driver file.

If you dont have a disk downoad the driver from the internet and do the same process.
Maybe you have to install and reboot 2 times, dont worry, we tolking abaut windows op.system.

If you need more help send more data. Brand full model nunber...

Sanyo VPC-s500 i cant get it to install drivers or find them so i can upload pictures to my computer

The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
Select USB
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 can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
Select Administrative Tools
Computer Management
On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open

Can I get the software on floppies?

A CD-ROM would initially be required to create floppy installation disks. This option will require 6 disks for Windows 3.x, 9 for Win 95, 98 and NT or 8 disks for a Mac installation.
