The link below is a direct link to the drivers page for VistaQuest

http://www.vistaquestusa.com/pages/service.htm

Scroll down to the Digital Video recorders section. You'll see the DV-7 there. Out to the right you'll see the word Driver - click on it and save the file to your computer (remember where you save it). Once it has finished downloading, run the program to install the drivers. After the drivers are installed, you can then plug the camera into your computer and the computer should find and load the drivers.

Can I use a Bytecc BT-144 usb external floppy disk drive with an iMac running OS 10.10.1?


I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.

Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????

Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.

If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.

I plug it in my computer and nothing pops up to view the pictures.


Ok well there is quite a large number of things this could be.Try going into your "Computer/My Computer" folder and clicking on a drive named "Removable disk" if you have one. If there is no removable disk drives that contain your pictures then try these things.

First thing could be that your camera isn't on. Try following instruction that came with the camera to see what you do when you plug it in. Many cameras have specific buttons that need to be pressed when plugged in.

Number 2 would be that your camera is not compatible with your OS. I am both a windows and mac user myself, and I know that depending on what you are running, certain cameras may not work on windows or mac. Check your camera's user guide to see what is supported, and check your computer to see if you have a supported OS.

On windows go to Start>(Right Click) Computer/My Computer> Properties- and A window should come up displaying info. about your computer. At the top it should say what OS you are running.

On mac go to (Apple logo)> About this Mac- A window will pop up displaying your OS in bold letters and the Model of that OS right under it. The OS I am running right now is Mac OS X 10.6.4 for example.

The third thing that comes to mind is drivers. Most cameras come equipped to automatically install the required drivers when plugged in, but yours may not be doing that. If the camera came with any install discs, insert them and try to install the drivers. If it didn't do some googling to try and find some drivers for your particular OS.

The fourth thing is that the drive your camera is being recognized on needs remapped. Do some googling to figure out how to change a drive location in windows. What this means is that your camera is set to be recognized on drive X: for example. Well your computer isn't set up to read drive X: it's only set up to read A:, B:, C:, and D:. You need to change the camera's drive to be drive D: or something instead of X:. This way the computer will read it.

The final thing could always be a defective cable. If this is the case, try a different cable.

There are still multiple other things, but try these first.

I plugged my seagate into my mac OS and backed it up first, then went to my pc running windows xp and tried to locate the seagate drive and couldn't. Can I only use the Seagate on one machine or another?


Hi,

If you are planning to use the Seagate Hard Drive on a PC and MAC better format it on your MAC Computer thru disc Utility and choose MS-DOS. This should solve the problem.

Mac has the ability to recognize a FAT, NTFS and MAC File System for the hard drive but the PC Computer cannot recognize MAC File System.

Check on your mac the File system of your hard drive.
MAC OS Extended
MAC OS Extended (Journaled)

If this is the file system then you now know that it will not be read by PC.

Also formating it with the use of PC will only result in an NTFS File System, and it can be read by Mac but it is only in a Read Only mode. You cannot copy paste or even erase on the drive having an NTFS on a MAC.

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

I would suggest you look in to Apple's Bootcamp. Although you do not want to run in a dual-boot configuration, Bootcamp allows you to create a CD with all of the Mac's windows drivers.

I appologize but I am not totally sure if 1) the Bootcamp drivers contain a camera driver and 2) if the camera works at all within Parallels.

Worth a shot though.
