    What make and model camera? If your camera uses a memory card of some type, have you considered NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

The easiest way is to remove the memory card from your camera and plug it into the appropriate card reader on your computer or external reader (if you have one or are willing to spend a little to get one). Otherwise you can plug the camera into your computer with the USB cable that came with it.
Either way, after a few seconds your computer should recognize the new device. It may pop up a notification window asking you if you want to import the pictures automatically (you can if you want).

To transfer them manually, open two windows of "My computer". Navigate one to the folder where you would like to move the pictures to as a destination. In the other one, open up the folder named after your camera or the memory card. Copy the pictures from your card to the destination folder. A lot of times the pictures will be in a folder called something like DCIM on the card / camera.
You can also go to the manufacturer's site and search for your model and see if they still offer the software as a download.

Please leave feedback if you found this helpful.

Installation software (driver) for vivitar mini digital camera (keychain)


I don't see the CD on the web. But why would you want it? Just plug your camera into your computer and look for it in My Computer. Drag your photos to My Pictures or wherever you would like them to be. Don't let some organizer put your photos in some unknown location!
