Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Vivitar no longer makes the 5100 and its support site does not list drivers for this camera, so anyone with this model is SOL because even their tech support will not provide the solution.

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.

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.

Windows Vista does not recognize my Vivitar ViviCam 6150 Camera. Where do I go on line to get the drivers needed for this camera? I tried the Vivitar site to no avail..Thanks


The driver listed on the vivitar site for the model 5399 will likely work, but I suggest that you contact customer service at support@vivitar.com for confirmation.

I NEED THE DRIVER FOR MY CAMERA PLEASE


Vivitar Vivicam 5100 USB Mass Storage Device Driver Windows 98.
Note: Windows Me/2000/XP, Mac OS X, and Desktop LX users do not require any driver software for this camera."

This lets Windows98 get at the pictures stored on the camera, but doesn't let the Vivicam 5100 work as a webcam, even in windows 98.

My guess is that the driver is hard to find because it doesn't exist. :-(

While I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news,
We could always use the help. ;-)

Good luck,

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