The camera tech may be right.

vista has new requirements and specially with drivers from camcorders,cameras...and everything else that requires you to install specific programs and drivers for that to run on a vista.

what you should do is check with your cameras website if they have one, and see if they have new drivers or software that is compatible with windows vsta.

you shouldnt have any problems doing this with XP, but with Vista, thats something else..

How to download photos from vivicam 4100

Hookup the camera using the supplied USB cable. Turn on the Camera. And wait!!! Sometimes the VISTA PC will recognize the camera in a minute or two, sometimes longer. Turning the camera on and off will cause an icon to appear in the 'Computer' window momentarily, but it usually disappears!

I have taken many, many pics with my trusty 4100 and have been able to transfer ALL of them by exercising extreme patience.

Just keep checking the Computer window for the USB icon.

Good Luck,

Bushnell Outdoor digital camera, usb doesnt recogonize device

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! If you view a driver, and it says you do not need one, then how do you have a driver to view? Everyhing has a driver, if they didnt then how could the CPU recognize anything?

The cable is not causing any trouble by simply being connected to the PC end. Remove all the camera drivers prior to reinstalling the software you downloaded.
