I have a VIvitar DVR 545 I can not find out how to recharge the rechargable battery



I just bought this camera and had the same problem.

How DO you charge the battery???!!!

Here goes:
Open the box the camera came in and you should find a little rectangualr black box and a 3-pin plug.
Ignore the other stuff unless you think you may need it (depends what country you're in and what your mains supply wall socket fittings are). Take a close look at the little rectangualr black box and you'll see a slot in it. That's where your battery goes! Remember the battery must be taken out of the camera and slotted into this box! Make sure you align the battery correctly to the litle pins inside the box.
The Vivitar DVR 545 uses a sort of mobile phone/cell phone battery.You must take the battery OUT of the camera. Now you have slotted the battery into the box you connect the 3-pin plug to the box and then insert the plug (attached to the box) into your wall mains supply socket. The box will light up and you'll see a red light. Once this light turns green your camera battery is charged!

RE-INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CAMERA.

The whole charging procedure for the DVR 545 is ridiculous but there it is! By the way one drawback about having to remove the battery from the camera to charge it is that you will lose all or most of your camera settings. remember to reset video and photo settings - resolution, flash etc., etc.

Also a word of caution:
The Vivitar DVR 550 is unusual in that the battery is charged using the USB port. If you also happen to have a DVR 550 do NOT attempt to charge the Vivitar 545 using the Vivitar DVR 550 USB charger cable!

You will destroy your DVR 545 in seconds!!!!

SOURCE: Need Vivitar DVR 518 User Guide and/or Manual.

I have the same situation. The tutorial on the enclosed CD says to download the manual from the vivitar web site but, as you indicated, the web site does not recognize the model. I called their support number and was given some BS about there being download information on the CD/DVD if you go into explore and look at properties (these 'support' people obviously have no computer experience). Anyhow, they said that they woudl ship me a new disc that has the manuals on it. Time will tell but this seems to be the only approach that has gotten me anywhere.

Hi there, the camera can be used without drivers with a computer running MacOS (10 and greater, which I'm sure your daughter's would be anyway) for the purposes of downloading the video files from the camera to the computer and editing etc.
The functionality which is not supported without the drivers (which are windows only unfortunately) is using the camera as a webcam.
On connecting the USB cable from the camera to the MacBook and turning the camera on, you will be presented with a menu on the flip-out LCD screen entitled "PC connection". The two items on the menu allow you to choose between allowing you to download videos and other content from the camera (Mass Storage) and using the camera as a webcam for the computer (PC Camera). Mass Storage is the option you need to select at this point (which I believe is highlighted by default) after which an icon will appear on the desktop of the MacBook allowing you access to the camera's storage.
Hope this was of some help.
Regards,
-Matt/CrashDr

I want to upload a video to my macbook pro for an iMovie, but it says I need a Fire Wire...Is it possible to connect my Vivitar DVR 410 to a FireWire cable?


As a tech, I found FireWire cables to be vastly unreliable, but if you just have to have one, do NOT scrimp. Get one that is heavy duty. The thicker the cable, the better. Avoid flexing the cable near the connectors if at all possible.

Hi I,have a Vivitar DVR550,and need a new recharger for it. when I,but when I,put my model in the vivitar support page it does not have the model number in the list.There is nothing wrong with my camera...


Go here:

http://www.amazon.com/VIVITAR-DVR-545-DVR-550-DVR-550G-CAMCORDER/dp/B002RN6DO0/ref=sr_1_64?ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1260903217&sr=1-64

You can read the specs of exactly what type of charger is needed, or just purchase it.

Vivitar DVR 550 was a well known model in the UK. but the company Sakar bought the Vivitar comapany out. However, the Vivitar site still exists, but not much support for the DVR 550 is provided. I would recommend e-amiling them by visiting www.vivitar.com

Good Luck
