If the data cable is working ok, try removing the batteries or the acumulator and the memory card.If this doesn't make a difference, try reseting to default all the camera settings and finally reinstall the drivers, if any, for the camera. Installing and uninstalling different new programs in your computer can alter the proper functionality of the camera, so, as a last resort you could try reinstaling a new operating system on your pc. Hope one of this solution would help you on your problem.Cheers!

How do i download video from my D90 to my computer to edit or share?


Two options: connect with a USB lead or take the memory card out of the camera and read it with a card reader attached to the computer.

Using a USB lead, you shouldn't need a driver or other software. The computer can recognise the camera memory as a removable drive without actually recognising the camera as a camera. Try looking in "My Computer" for an extra drive (Under "Devices with Removable Storage") and opening that. There should be directories with picture files in them that you can drag to your desktop. Video files will be in a different directory.

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. You can't get the pics from the camera's internal memory that way though.

In the absence of full information on what you are trying to do, I assume you just want to get your photos from your camera to your computer.

An elderly woman in my building gave me a digital camera, a Vivitar Vivicam 3750, a battery recharge pack and a USB cord. She does not have an installation disk (and has no idea what that is) and I want to...


Windows will recognise the camera as a storage device without any drivers or installation disks being installed...just plug it in, turn on the camera and wait till windows recognises it...it will then appear in My Computer as a new driver (E:,F:.G: etc etc).

Right click "My Computer" and choose properties.

Click on "Hardware" from the tabs up the top, then the "Device Manager" button

Click on your computer name (top of the tree list) and you will notice a new button apear up the stop (scan for new hardware)...click on that and then follow the prompts that come up (Found Hardware Wizard)..


Also you can go to

http://www.vivitar.com/support.php and search for your camera and grab whatever software came that was with the camera
