There is a little slide on the memory stick that prevents it from being erased, make sure it is not in the locked position.

    Excuse me, I meant to ask for more info not intending it to be a "Solution" but a quick thing to check. I take it you are accessing from your computer though a cable, and are not able to delete. Could you please give more info, as to PC or MAC, and if you are using the program that came with the camera. Thank you.

I am unable to download my pics onto the computer. I have attached the USB cable but nothing happens. I have been able to download pics in the past. Can you advise me please?


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 iPhoto on Mac or Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ) on Windows.

After downloading pictures with the "erase after downloading" box checked it starts to erase the pictures as expected, but hangs at pic 37. Is the memory card faulty, or is it a software bug?


I'm not sure what's causing that problem, but it will be much faster each time you download photos to not erase after downloading. Instead, find the option on your camera to format the card, and it will erase everything on the card in one process. It's much faster.

I downloaded pics from my vivicam 8025 with the memory card. they are on my photo gallery, but it erased them off the card and now it says the card is full too. what is the problem


You may have your photo gallery set to erase after downloads. You need to change that. Pics erased on your computer will still register as files on your camera even though you can't see them. You need to format the card in the camera. If you can't change the settings in your photo gallery, you could use a card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can transfer them to photo gallery and your originals are still on the memory card.

Stoplight shows even though all pics have been downloaded


Do you happen to be on a Mac when you downloaded the photos? If so, make sure to empty the trash (while still having the camera plugged in) after you delete them.

Is your card old or very full of pictures? Is your card "cheap" and slow? Download your pics to your computer and then format the card in the camera to completely erase and optimize it...see if that helps.

You can go to this website and download the files you need in your computer in order to download the pictures.

The camera comes with a CD, If you don't have this photo share softwares in your computer, you won't be able to download. Also you can take your camera xd or sd card to a store with photo service and have your pictures on a CD. From the CD you can download to the computer.

Downloading pics to memory card


a virus is present in your pc, infecting the memory card. I suggest that whenever your card leaves the camera and used in any computer or lab, always format the card in your camera not in pc cause this will gonna erase all the pictures including the virus. virus in cf cards wont destroy your camera but it will make it operates like crazy. Make it a standard operating procedure to always format card inside the camera.
Photolab will be able to read even a corrupted card.
