    I want to add photos to my coby 1.5 photo viewer. I get the message: "Can't find any photoviewer, or another program owns it. This program will exit!"

    What do I do? I uninstalled and then reinstalled the program with the CD that came with the viewer.

    Thanks Glass that was my problem

  • Anonymous Feb 27, 2009

    Yup, I had the same error message... the fix... push the 'stoopid' USB cable all the way in. It does have to click in so you can't see any of the metal. If you think it's in but if you can still see part of the metal plug... it's not in all the way in!

    Push it in until it clicks.

We had the same problem and you won't believe what the actual problem is!!! When you plug the USB plug into the keychain device or whatever device you are using (in our case it was a keychain), make absolutely certain that the plug is pushed in all the way (it is tough to push in) until it actually clicks and all you see is the black part of the USB plug. Then try your software. It should work!!!

Make sure it is plugged into a USB port with enough power. I had a problem when it was plugged into a USB hub (it was even powered) but it worked immediately when I plugged it directly into the computer.

When I try to install the coby dp 151 it says: cant find photoviewer or program that owns it. the program will exit. ?? confused


Hello,

The error you describe, is also mentioned in the Setup Guide for the DP151.
When you connect the Key Chain to the USB port of your computer, on the Key Chain will prompt the message to select: USB charge or USB update.


For proper function of the Chain Key:

0) Before connecting the Chain Key, have the Photo Viewer software installed:
You need adminstrator rights to perform installation of programs.
Install the photo viewer from the CD or download this program
from the Coby support site:
> enter cobyusa.com in the address bar of internet explorer
> enter DP151 in the Product Search bar
now all support for the Chain Key will show
> run the DP151_PhotoViewer zip file directly or save the zip file onto your computer, unzip and run the setup.exe file later

1) Connect the Chain Key and Select USB update on the Chain Key.
Again, to be able to update, you need adminstrator rights.

2) Run the Photo Viewer on the computer.

Software won't install coby photo viewer key chain


You need to make sure the usb cable is in all the way to the viewer. You have to push it hard. No silver showing. Always need the viewer plugged in first before starting the viewer program. After that it is pretty simple.

Vu-Me photo ball error message Photo Viewer Data Synchronize failed


Wicked! Got it working.

I had the same issue as described by the other posts. I run Windows Vista. I suspect the others are experiencing the same error message and are also running Vista.

Short Version of the Solution: You must run the Photo Viewer program as an administrator.

To do this:
  1. Close the program if it is open
  2. Right click on the program icon
  3. Select "Run as Administrator" - Yes you have to do this even if you are already logged into the PC with administrator privledges.
  4. You will be prompted to Cancel or Allow - Select "Allow"
It will now work.

Note: You may be asked for the administrator password if you are not logged into the machine as an an adminstrator already.

Hope this helps someone out there!

Copy DP-151 Photo Viewer software does not work.


You have to push the USB cable into the keychain until it pops. Push it in hard! I thought mine was all the way in because the keychain lit up, but it wasn't.
