MSDC is not a problem code. It is normal, the camera is informing you that it's connected to a computer. At this point you should see a new "drive" show up in my computer to transfer pictures.

Have you tried turning the camera on when plugged into a wall charger? If it turns on using the wall charger it might need a charge over night. If the camera will still not turn on after a charge the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

How do i know my vivitar camera X029 is charging? because when i plug it into the charger the red light sometimes doesn't come one.


you may have a bad charger connection at the camera, try wigglig it when you plug it in and see if the red light comes on. this problem is difficutt to fix, and expensive. If the light comes on and off while you are wiggling the cable near the camea, then that is your problem

I cant find my charger and software for vivitar 8025. Is this something I can buy online separate? Does USB cord charge camera if plugged into pc?


Hello,

The USB cable does charge the battery if plugged into pc.
The red LED will light while charging and go off when the battery is charged.
I cannot find any options to buy the software online but the Support email is: support@vivitar.com

Hope this helps.

Battery wont charge


This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

Vivitar DVR 545 - Is this going to work with my MacBook?


I have a VIvitar DVR 545 I can not find out how to recharge the rechargable battery



I just bought this camera and had the same problem.

How DO you charge the battery???!!!

Here goes:
Open the box the camera came in and you should find a little rectangualr black box and a 3-pin plug.
Ignore the other stuff unless you think you may need it (depends what country you're in and what your mains supply wall socket fittings are). Take a close look at the little rectangualr black box and you'll see a slot in it. That's where your battery goes! Remember the battery must be taken out of the camera and slotted into this box! Make sure you align the battery correctly to the litle pins inside the box.
The Vivitar DVR 545 uses a sort of mobile phone/cell phone battery.You must take the battery OUT of the camera. Now you have slotted the battery into the box you connect the 3-pin plug to the box and then insert the plug (attached to the box) into your wall mains supply socket. The box will light up and you'll see a red light. Once this light turns green your camera battery is charged!

RE-INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CAMERA.

The whole charging procedure for the DVR 545 is ridiculous but there it is! By the way one drawback about having to remove the battery from the camera to charge it is that you will lose all or most of your camera settings. remember to reset video and photo settings - resolution, flash etc., etc.

Also a word of caution:
The Vivitar DVR 550 is unusual in that the battery is charged using the USB port. If you also happen to have a DVR 550 do NOT attempt to charge the Vivitar 545 using the Vivitar DVR 550 USB charger cable!

You will destroy your DVR 545 in seconds!!!!
