Hi,
I would suggest taking it to a place like precision repair. They are independent and offer free estimates.

Have a PDC 640 10 years old and need a driver for my DELL cumputer with Windows 7 Premium


You are not likely to find a driver for a camera that old. Why not use a card reader instead? Just pull the memory card from your camera, insert it into the card reader and plug that into your computer. It is simply, fast, and doesn't drain your camera's batteries.
You can get one at this site: http://www.memorysuppliers.com/daz6in1mulre.html

It worked for me! Please email me at cruzn_2_u@yahoo.com and let me know if this helped:)

Types of batteries.


You can use AA disposable batteries (alkaline or lithium) or rechargeable (NiMH or Nicad) batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer, but are generally quite a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries. You should never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. If you use Nicad batteries, it is recommended that you use a Nicad conditioning charger to extend the life of the batteries. Note: If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need a battery charger. The camera's AC power supply does not recharge batteries.

My PDC 640 digital camera's memory locks up (when I'm using a memory card). What should I do?


The camera memory may "lock" as it reaches its limit. With the camera disconnected from the PC, and on battery power, turn off the camera by closing the lens cover. Remove and reinsert the memory card. Now turn on the camera -- it should power on properly.

My new PDC 640 camera is not turning on.


This problem may be due to one of the following: * The lens cover is not open. Slide the lens cover to the right. * The batteries are not inserted properly. Remove the batteries and check the placement of the (+) positive and (-) negative ends. Then reinsert them, making sure they're securely in place. * The batteries are dead. Put in fresh replacements. Power issues may also be the result of using the wrong AC adapter. Use only the recommended AC adapter for the 640.

USB port with the PDC 640 camera?


The Polaroid PDC 640 digital camera connects to an available 9-pin serial port only -- it does not support the use of a USB/serial converter. However, you can use a SmartMedia Card Reader with the camera's reremovable memory to download the images via the USB port to your computer.
