Vivitar vivicam 5100--frame #

Ive had this camera for about a year, and its been great, its traveled to chicago and back 3 times, and suffered alot of abuse, and still worked after ward. Now suddenly when i try to take a picture it acts like it takes it but the screen never turns back on, and when i try to take a video, the screen comes up with a big red box that says FRAME NUMBER FULL. yet i only have 30 pics on a card that can hold 300.
Can anyone be of any help??

You mentioned that the camera has had a lot of abuse. I assume that means you did not take a lot of care with the camera.

Remember that a digital camera is very delicate. It will not stand under abuse very long.

Treat your digital camera like you are dealing with eggs, and it will last. Of course things do happen, it is mechanical, and things do burn out, and wear.

If you would use the wrist strap to hold the camera, the chance of dropping a camera is lessened. Putting it in a padded case will indeed help to preserve the delicate parts.

If you want to toss the camera in a box, and treat it with very little care, then maybe you should use a cheap camera.

Lost the software to my vivitar vivicam 5100


I have the same problem, I have sent numerous emails to Vivitar support and never got any replies.
I called them directly and they told me that they are not offering any support / driver for this particular model.
Next time you buy a camera, leave Vivitar's models on the shelf.

Vivitar does not list the 5100 on their site. You can however, get the drivers and manual for the 5150 here:

New Vivtar Vivicam 5100 (a few minor issues)


NO SOUND well when recording video it records sound, but this camera does not have a speaker, it cannot play sound back, when you transfer your videos to PC you will hear sound PC CAM You cud use the windows 98 mass storage device driver to make the webcam work, but the picture will be very dark, i suggest you look on ebay for the vivicam 5100 and ask one of the seller if they can sell u the CD, this is a very hard driver to find, ive had no luck either
