Problem getting my ViviCam out of MSDC mode

Hello,

The only options I have is PC Camera and MSDC, so either way I cannot take pictures! When I click playback button it toggles between the two, and very breifly it says "no file exist" before getting stuck in MSDC mode.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

What's your problem?hello how do I get my vivicam vivitar camera out of macro mode it says my card is full but this is not the case. I can't take any pictures can you help


There's a switch on the end of the camera near the USB slot. Slide it away from the flower position to take it out of macro mode.

As for the memory card, what size is it? Have you formatted it?

Vivicam 8025 what does the MSDC screen mean while charging


The MSDC indicates that the camera has recognized it's connected to a computer.

The red light indicates that the camera's battery is charging.

Just bought new camera it says msdc


The MSDC option in digital cameras stands for Mass Storage Device Class. It is one of the many subclasses of the USB computer peripheral connection protocol.

This class as implemented in digital cameras, allows a connection between a computer and a digital camera by showing the digital camera, when connected to the computer, as a removable disk drive, temporarily attached to the computer. Pictures taken are retrieved using either cut and paste, copy and paste or drag and drop from the digital camera's picture folder onto a real hard drive or other writeable media available in the computer.

In addition, arbitrary data (does not have to be pictures) can be stored in the digital camera's onboard memory to the limit of the memory. The MSDC device class can be implemented by any kind of electronic device which has embedded memory storage in any form such as flash memory, IDE hard drives, etc.

Hello. I lost my codec "install" CD for my Vivitar ViviCam DVR-565 Hard Drive Camcorder camera. How can I get the driver "codecs" now? Cannot find them "online". I need them desperately - in...


Transfer media from my camera to my computer manually (Using Windows)
1. Use the USB cable that came with your camera to connect your camera to your computer.
2. MSDC appears on the LCD.
3. A window appears with a list of options, select "Open folder to view files" and click OK.
4. Open the DCIM folder and the folder inside to view the media files.
5. Select the media and copy the files from this folder into your computer. Optionally, select the files and choose Copy from the Edit menu. Then select a folder and choose Paste from the Edit menu.
6. We recommend that you copy the images into the Pictures/My Pictures folder and the videos into the Videos/My Videos folder.
7. Do not disconnect the cable during transfer. Doing so will cancel the transfer of any files on their way to your computer.

This camera does not need specific drivers from Vivitar (driver=instructions for hardward like a camera)
If you miss the old program you can probably download from the vivitar site their "Vivitar Experience Image Manager". If you're having a problem with codecs (the information your computer needs to decode video formats so you can watch them) you can get all the latest codecs by going to google and typing in "download matroska pack" and download the matroska codec pack.

Msdc


i have the same camera and the same problem but i have found out msdc means mass storage device, for the camera to work you have to have a memory card inside it. im getting one tomorrow for mine, so hopefully that should solve the problem :)

Vivitar 8025 comes up msdc when i connect usb lead to my computer


It's supposed to do that, informing you that it's in mass storage mode. Once connected you control it from the computer, not the camera.
