Does your laptop happen to be a Mac? But no matter. You can still use your laptop to recover your photos with recovery software. Here's several freeware for PC's, but it also includes a link to one freeware for Macs just in case my guess was right. Seem to see this particular problem occurring frequently (corrupted card after plugging into computer), but primarily occurring with Macs, and also gaming systems such as Wii.
Now to get the card working again, after recovering your photos, you'll need to format the card in your camera using the cameras format feature. If the camera does not recognize the card, you'll need to format it first in a PC to FAT32, then reformat again in your camera.

Having gone over ten months without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader instead of a cord solved the problem.

The camera uses standard SD cards, 2GB or smaller, which should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Your pictures may be corrupted.You can recover those corrupted pictures with this
1. Do not save any new pictures into the memory card of your camera.

How do I download pistures from my camera to a 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.

I have the vivitar 5385 when I try to download photo from camera it say my camera is not hooked to my computer

Dear June,Yes, you might be correct. The cord may be faulty. Take out the memory card and insert it into a memory card reader. Then connect the card reader to your computer and see whether you can download the photos.
