    theres no place for a memory card. it takes a XXX battery and the only other thing i have with it is a USB cable. Thats not enough. i was hoping someone would know where i could either get the CD or DVD software or download software for it. i think you can buy this type camera's here at our local Walmart for anywhere from $ 10-20. so, i don't want to have to pay for a whole camera when all i need is the software.

    when i plugged the USB into the computer and into the camera, it shows i need hardware for it. i think i need a CD or DVD to download the program into my computer for the camera.

    i've had "other" digital cameras before this one. in all the others ones that i bought at a walmart, they had a CD or DVD so i could download the camera into my computer.
    this little digital camera is a key chain digital camera that i got at a garage sale. all that came with it was a USB cable. there is NOT a memory card with it nor is there a slot for one to go in it. i did replace the XXXbattery that was in it.

If the camera uses a memory card, you just need to get a memory card reader. You plug the card in one end and the other into a USB port on your computer to download pics.

    If you plug the camera into the computer using the USB cord, does anything happen? Does an icon appear, does windows offer to open it for you using windows explorer, does it appear as a removable drive in "my computer"(you can double click on that and drag and drop the files into a folder you create on your desktop).

    I've searched everywhere but with no success. Considering the cheapness and age of this camera, I would give up. Spend a little money on a new, real point-and-shoot camera and have some fun.

How to take pictures with a vivitar mini digital camera and store the photos on my computer


To connect the Vivitar camera to a computer with Windows XP and following versions of Windows, or a Mac, all you need is an USB cable fitting the camera. This cameras are detected without installing dedicated software or drivers.

About one minute after connecting the camera, the computer will detect the device, and install automatically the camera, that will be seen as an external hard drive.

At that point, open My computer. You will see that an additional external USB drive had been installed.

The new external drive will be the camera itself, open it and open the folder in the drive to find the picture file.

Use the Windows copy and paste function or a dedicated software to copy the files into the My Pictures folder in your computer. You find My picture inside My document folder.

Note. if the camera is not recognized, then this model may need Vivitar driver (usually they do not). In that case download the software from the Vivitar website below, or give us the complete model, or contact Vivitar.

Here also Vivitar software to manage the pictures. Try both ways: VIVITAR we make it easy! | Homepage

The USB cable can be gotten at any camera store. There is nothing on the CDROM that you need to operate your camera. Most software supplied by manufactures are imaging programs you can use to modify your pictures. Better programs like Google Picaso are free to download.
