Question about Vivitar VIVICAM 8625 Digital Camera
Suddenly, for no known reason, when I plug in my USB cable to get pictures from the camera to my computer, the camera shuts down. I've changed batteries, tried a different software -- nothing seems to work. Can anyone help? Thank you!!
Consider 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 Picasa.

Remove all Camera Software.
Assuming you have a Windows Computer when the camera is plugged in and in the upload mode
The computer will recognise it as a new device in My Computer.

I didn't see any software on vivtars website for you camera. I found the manual which is at this link:
Drivers are not required for your camera unless you have Windows 98 installed.
You will probably have to order a new CD direct from Vivitar if you need software.
There are some programs for free that you can use if you want to transfer pictures to your computer and do a few simple editing features. Kodak has one. Adobe has one as well.
It doesn't show you in the book what the camera connector looks like. You can check with Vivitar on that. If the connector on your camera is D shaped they do sell USB cable with a standard D shaped end at most computer stores.

SOURCE: cannot start camera
That simply means that the battery is dead. It lights up thru USB port as the port has charging facility. But battery being dead does not hold the charge. Change it.

Testimonial: "Thanks for advice. When I checked batteries they were in the wrong way around. Ooops! Regards"
most times you dont need software installed in the computer.
With you camera plugged in and turned on, try to go to START / MYCOMPUTER and take a look. See if you can see there a drive which point to the camera.
- or -
try to connect the camera in a different usb port of the pc. that could also work.
