It means that the camera is connected to the computer, and it's perfectly normal.

If it doesn't go away when you disconnect from the computer, then it's a problem. If that happens, please append a comment to this post and we'll go from there.

SOURCE: 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 :)

SOURCE: what does MSDC mean everytime I plug the camera

Hi,

The MSDC error is to do with the memory card having bad sectors or has become corrupt.

Basically you have to reformat the card to get it working or take the card out of the camera and put it in a card reader and see if you can get the computer to recognize the card that way.


Regards.

That's perfectly normal. The camera is merely acknowledging the connection to the computer. You control the picture download process from the computer.

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer. 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.

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

What does msdc mean?


MSDC is not limited to just the Vivitar V-8225p Digital Camera. MSDC stands for Mass Storage Device Class. It allows the camera to communicate with the computer, and this error usually shows up when you're plugging it in your computer, which roughly just means that the computer cannot communicate with the camera.

The best solution I would have for you is to buy an external SD card reader, which would remove this problem entirely.

I just bought the camera and am trying to charge it. I am not getting an LED light but instead a blue screen that says "MSDC" in white letters. I have checked the battery and storage disk...


Are you charging it by plugging it into a computer? The "MSDC" you see usually means "Mass Storage Device Class", which basically means the computer is using the storage on the camera as a removable drive. This would usually happen when plugging a camera into the computer via USB. There is usually an AC adapter that comes with a camera, or a separate charger for just the battery. If there was no charger that came with it, the camera is probably still charging. If the camera is on, try turning it off and plugging it in. Remember, even if it shows "MSDC", it is probably still charging. Hope this helps!

That means that the camera recognizes that it's connected to a computer. You need to control the download process from the computer while the camera just sits there saying "MSDC".

This means that the camera recognizes it has been connected to a computer. You can now download pictures from the camera. Just do it from the computer, not the camera.

I have a vivitar 8025 camera it has on the screen msdc what does this mean?


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.
