Contact them direct. MOST manufacturers put a link on the page, but apparently Vivitar haven't thought of that.

No its the crappy software. Mine wont work either. Just plug your camera into the USB port. You can upload images and video anyway by mass storage. If you want to use the videos in moviemaker find the Prizm media converter and you can instantly convert the files in wmv. Good luck

I have the DVR 870hd camcorder. The installation disk would not load on my computer . I have win vista, it is suppose to work on mty PC. Also the cam will only record 22secs of recording time then stops...

Check to see if the card has a write protect, if so make sure its not locked.. IF thats not the case, then my best guess is to take the cam back.
