    I, too, have misplaced my CD for the DVR 550. I hadn't used it for a while and may have removed the program. I can find nothing on this. Can you help? I thought there was a solution to this problem posted but when I click on the "FIXYA" solution I get nothing.

Hello Everybody. I am sorry that you all have this problem. I too had temporarily misplaced my install cd, but have since found it! When I had initially lost it, I contacted customer support at Vivitar for possibly getting new software, but they told me that the company has changed owners and they no longer support anything before the purchase of the company. I was ******. Anyway, because you need the actual software to install the camcorder and it isn't as simple as sharing a driver on a website like (already tried that), you can email ME with a request for the software with "Vivitar DVR 550 Software" in the subject line and I will send the software in an attachment in my reply once I receive your email. my email is Please be patient for a response as I don't check my email every day. If I can figure out a better way of doing this I will post it here.

Hi I,have a Vivitar DVR550,and need a new recharger for it. when I,but when I,put my model in the vivitar support page it does not have the model number in the list.There is nothing wrong with my camera...

Go here:

You can read the specs of exactly what type of charger is needed, or just purchase it.

Vivitar DVR 550 was a well known model in the UK. but the company Sakar bought the Vivitar comapany out. However, the Vivitar site still exists, but not much support for the DVR 550 is provided. I would recommend e-amiling them by visiting

Good Luck

I do not have the sofware to make work on my computer i broke the disk by mistake

You will need to "install" the software on your PC. Run the "setup.exe" program from your CD to do this.

You will also need to connect your camera with an USB cable to your PC to transfer pictures to and from PC.

Here´s a manual and software download site for DVR-550 . Send them a request.
