Hi, Try first disconnecting (unplug completely) computer from power outlet and usb from computer, wait ten minutes, then connect back power, and when Windows is started usb camera.
This will get rid of eventual problems with electrostatic charges on USB.

If the above did not work you may need to reinstall drivers, I will need details on your camera make and model in this case.

    Unfortunately Vivitar does not distribute anymore the drivers/software for its old models. Alternative driver download sites do not have the download for your model. Contact Vivitar here to get instructions on how to proceed.

    Try also removing batteries from camera for two minutes, in case camera just need a reset. If the camera is plug and play (does not need drivers) it may turn out it is a problem with Windows on this specific computer, in this case you will need to reinstall Windows.

Wher can I buy a usb cable for my Polaroid m737t?


Consider NOT using the USB connection.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries. Even if you have to buy a card reader, it won't cost much more than a USB cable.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Driver for Canon EOS 400D


This camera does not require a driver on windows XP. The most common cause of USB related communication issues is the USB cord itself. Second most common cause is the USB port on the camera as they are easily damaged. You can fix the problem by buying a USB card reader instead of plugging the camera directly into your PC. If you use the camera's USB port it will eventually fail, they simply can not last through years of plugging and unplugging and the bumping around associated with use of the on board USB port. With the card reader you simply remove the memory card from the camera, plug it into the reader and then proceed to get your pictures. It is simple, reliable, and all around the best solution to this and all problems related to communicating with your camera over USB.

Fixing communication problem between camera and the PC is not a easy task and sometime you may have to invest a lot of time and come out no result. Easiest way is purchase a "CARD READER" from any electronic mega store for about $10-18. Plug it into back of your PC and setup. Now take the card out from your Vivicam and insert it into the card reader and you are done. If not sure then ask any of your family or friend age between 12 to 29 years old and it should take them just 10 minutes to make it ready for you. Good luck.
