Hi,

The reason you have multiple cards is that your PC has built-in card readers. Pls try clicking on "My Computer" when Vivitar is not connected and note the last drive letter, perhaps an "F". If and when you plug in your camera, there would be an additional diver Letter, say "G", that would then be your camera. To my knowledge, Dell Inspiron 531has built into it a 13-in-1 media card reader.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Open computer or my computer. you should see your camera in there, atleast as a removeable storage device, you can disconnect the camera and see which drive disapears. the one that appears / disappears is the camera and your pictures are in there.

    you need to browse inside the camera, you will find all your pictures in there, don't use a program if its not working. you can copy and print the pictures directly from the camera.

How to install GE E1255W Digital Camera driver for Windows 7?


You don't need a driver.


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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

When importing pictures from either camera or SD


vista is causing the error. its a sucky op sys. have you considered downgrading, or perhaps putting ubuntu in as a second op sys from within windows? i would say that probably vista has the wrong drivers loaded for god knows how many of your devices. could be video, or video and card reader, and cam. if it works fine in xp, than at least you know your hardware and your card and cam are ok. you could honestly spend a week or a minute trying to find a reason why vista does freaky things but the reality is that its just unstable, clunky and a poor, poor excuse for an op sys. 80 percent of people who have vista dump it within the first 90 days of owning the pc or laptop.

Windows vista problem


vista is not much different to xp ... it just has a load of extra trimmings that you dont really need.
try checking your sound card drivers and make sure yahoo is set to use the appropriate device.
Vista also is an operating system that takes up a lot more disk space. Bill gates likes to sell stuff that you think is improved but really its just an excuse for them to make more money.

Uploading pictures from camera to computer


I would check Vivitar's website for a camera driver file you can download that would enable you to use it. Not sure what you mean by install file being locked. In general, I would upgrade to Windows XP (or Vista if your machine will support it, once they've gotten more bugs out). Windows ME is basically Windows 98 with some multimedia extensions, and not one of Microsoft's better efforts-it's also old, so not many updates will be forthcoming.
