Well since you have a vista, you wont need to use its CD to get this connected to your PC; for picture transfer and all.

1.just plug it in
2.go to my computer
3.and you should be able to see another drive icon on your window that will look like a removable memory

but to make it easier for you to transfer files, you may want to get a USB card reader, so that the camera's memory card (SD) will just be plugged in to it and no need for the camera to be plugged to the PC, just a personal advice.

Hello, we just came from the UK into aust. We have a Praktica DC slim 330 but with no disc. the computer says that we need it to download pictures. please help!!


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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My computer won't recognize my Praktica MicroPix: "USB Device Not Recognized". I have installed, uninstalled & reinstalled MYDSC several times, but no success. Any recommendations?


here are drivers.. they will work for up to XP .. they might also work in Vista (you may have to use XP compatibility mode) .. if you are using Vista or Win7 then you might want to try that with your present drivers ...

Did not get a disc with my dpix 5200 camera im unable to send pic


Prakticam, unhelpfully don't have anything for their cameras more than a couple of years old and don't seem to care if you mislay the disc you paid for.So be warned, don't buy Praktica. I have the 5200, you have firstly to put your usb in computer, switch on camera, switch camera to view pictures taken mode, and because it auto switches to take picture mode you then carefully attach camera end into camera whilst camera is still switched on! Then go to my computer and click on F: the pictures download. Then to save them click on first pic, hold shift key down and then click on last pic they should all highlight, right click and then hover 'send to' and send by left clicking to my documents. I remember that it took me 4 hours to work it out. Found this looking for manual to download, cannot change date now......

Praktica view pix (keyring) driver


I have had the same problem, unable to load the small CD for the Praktica Viewpix digital keyring. I have today phoned the support line, and they have given me a separate web address where you can download the driver.

The address is:
www.jpsupport.co.uk/praktica/drivers

the correct driver to download is:
photoviewer v 2.24.exe

I have downloaded the driver successfully and am about to try and run it, although I am using a virtual pc on a mac so it may be slightly more complicated for me.

Hope that helps some of you though....

Transferring pics to computer


Check the 'My Computer' for an unfamiliar drive; if as most PCs, you have a C:, D:, E: listed, these are the basics; C: & D: are the hard drive (partitioned), E: is whatever optical drive you have. You may have others such as several named drives for a digital card drive may be present too. Depending on how your camera's memory is recognized, you should have a drive you didn't before. Open the last named drive to see what (if anything) it shows for folders and files. If it brings up an error message about having nothing to read, work your way forward in the alphabet and check each. Customarily, Win will add any new drives at the end of the series of named drives.       
If you find folders on a drive later in the alphabet, open them to look at the content. If you find a bunch of .jpg files, you are there.
If you find nothing, you may have to download an additional driver since the Praktica is not a real common camera, Vista may not have provided a default driver for it.

Praktica dcz3.2s


Check this website for updated drivers.

http://www.opendrivers.com/freedownload/247962/praktica-dcz-3.2s-digital-camera-driver-download.html

If the problem still exists, turn off you computer, connect the camera and restart the computer.

The operating system may install kind of a generic driver to allow you to access the camera a a simpkle 'mass storage device.'
If it finds and installs drivers, the camera will appear as a 'removable disc drive' that you can access as any other drive although you may have to open nested folders to see your pictures.
