I would simply use a USB card reader instead of trying to use the cables that came with the camera. It's faster and easier than trying to use a camera's proprietary software.

Cannot see pc MOV or JPG files on flash drive in Canon SX230


Thanks very much for responding to my problem.
It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing.
steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally.
2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7).
3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.

Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file.
2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy.
3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file.
5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck.
It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.

How do I put pic. ect. on a flashdrive?


plug in your camera to your computer via usb port. a box will popup on your computer screen asking what you want to do, choose view files and folders. go to the DCIM folder and find the images/videos you want to copy. Plug in your flash drive via usb port and choose to view files and folders. go back to the window with the images/videos and highlight the ones you would like to copy, highlight multiple by clicking one then holding down the ctrl key on bottom left of keyboard, and then choosing another one. Once your images are highlighted click and drag them to the flashdrive window.

Lost my disc and I have a new computer and I can't down load my pics.


You can also transfer images from your Camera to a computer without using any Software. Follow the very simple steps that I'm mentioning here next.
Connect the camera to a computer using the supplied USB cable. Once the computer recognizes the camera, the camera icon should appear in the computer. Now, further procedure completely depends on the Operating System that is installed in your Computer. If you're using Windows Operating system, then the camera icon will appear in the "My computer" window or if you're using Mac then you can view the camera icon on the Desktop.
Next, what you've to do is to double click on the Camera icon to view all the files and folders. Next, locate the folder that stores images. Usually the name of the folder that stores images starts with dsc... So, open the image folder and use the mouse and keyboard to select all the images.

In windows, use ctrl + A Keys combination to select all the files, ctrl+C to copy all the selected files. Next, navigate to the location on the computer where you'd like to save all your images. Once you've selected the location on the hard drive, press the ctrl+V Keys combination. This will paste all the copied items.

Free Download for Vivitar Experience Image Manager


Hello,

Could not find a download for you on their website.

You know you can download your pictures manually without the image manager. From the manual:

1. Use the USB cable that came with your camera to connect your camera to your computer.
2. A window appears with a list of options, select Open folder to view files and click OK.
3. Open the DCIM folder and the folder inside to view the media files.
4. Select the media and copy the files from this folder into your computer. Optionally, select the files and choose Copy from the Edit menu. Then select a folder and choose Paste from the Edit menu.
5. We recommend that you copy the images into the Pictures/My Pictures folder and the videos into the Videos/My Videos folder.
6. Do not disconnect the cable during transfer. Doing so will cancel the transfer of any files on their way to your computer.

If you still want to try to get the Image Manager software, I would suggest contacting Vivitar support at:

support@vivtar.com

OR

In the US: 1-800-592-9541

In the UK: 0-800-917-4831

In case you do not have a manual, here is a link:

Happy New Year!

Copying videos from the camera to the computer


Ruth when you put the media card into the pc it should read the card and perform and auto play if it does you need to chose open folder to view files. When you do this all the media should appear as thumbnails in the window.. What I do with my media is I will create a new folder on the desktop... right click on the computer screen and scroll to new highlight folder.. .name the folder what you want ... kids pix.//b-day party... etc... I find the easiest way .. and because I'm a visual person is to open the folder I created restore it down smaller on the screen so that both the files from the memory card and my new folder are opened side by side. highlight one image or file on the memory card hit cntrl+A and all should be highlighted ... now just drag them to the new folder that you created once they are they the card should be clean... if you happened to copy then just erase all the images off the card when they are in the folder... hope this helps

Cannot Get Video onto PC


The "static" still image is a default jpeg written to the SD card by the camera (at low resolution) which should be a still of the first frame of the video capture. There should also be a .mov file which is the video itself. How you find it will depend on how you connect the TZ3 up to the PC, presume by cable or is the SD card put into a card reader?
In any event when viewing the files on the PC from the drive which is the Camera device , look for .mov files and the still image file should have the same file name as the mov. eg.
P00000001.jpg (still of the first frame of video) aswell as P00000001.mov (the video itself).

Card not initialised


You can recover the missing pics off your card get, there are some image recovery programs available on the net and most camera shops will offer a card recovery service but dont format before you get pics recovered.

Not formatting a card is bad. They need to be formatted on a regular basis because deleting images from card does not remove them and the next image taken only overwrites the old ones.

SD card


Once connected to your PC you can copy virtually any file to the SD card and transport it home. However, in doing so you do risk the possibility that the camera may not be able to properly display the existing images on its LCD screen. The files won't be damaged, so they can be manually copied to the PC afterwards. In a similar situation, .JPG images you obtain from other sources can be coped to the SD card for temporary storage, but the camera may not display them properly. In any of the above cases when a problem is experienced, manually copy the files to te PC anf reformat the SD card IN THE CAMERA.
