Consider 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, such as Picasa.

Blue screen with msdc, cant get it out or off the sceen whats wrong


This is normal. The camera is simply acknowledging the connection to the computer. You control the download from the computer.

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

Just bought new camera it says msdc


The MSDC option in digital cameras stands for Mass Storage Device Class. It is one of the many subclasses of the USB computer peripheral connection protocol.

This class as implemented in digital cameras, allows a connection between a computer and a digital camera by showing the digital camera, when connected to the computer, as a removable disk drive, temporarily attached to the computer. Pictures taken are retrieved using either cut and paste, copy and paste or drag and drop from the digital camera's picture folder onto a real hard drive or other writeable media available in the computer.

In addition, arbitrary data (does not have to be pictures) can be stored in the digital camera's onboard memory to the limit of the memory. The MSDC device class can be implemented by any kind of electronic device which has embedded memory storage in any form such as flash memory, IDE hard drives, etc.

I am trying to upload pictures from x024 vivitar camera and the letters MSDC show on the monitor.what does that mean


That means that the camera recognizes that it's connected to a computer. You need to control the download process from the computer while the camera just sits there saying "MSDC".

Everytime i plug my camera into the computer msdc pops up on my camera i tired to download the fix thing but it doesnt work either


The MSDC is merely the camera's way of acknowledging the connection to the computer. You control the download from the computer, not the camera.

Of course, you might want to 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.

Lost my charger so i pluged it in the computer when i turn it on it says msdc


The "MSDC" is simply the camera's way of acknowledging that it's connected to a computer. If you want to use it to take pictures you'll have to disconnect it first.
