I have a Minolta mount vivitar 75-300 macro lens for 35mm camera. Are there any digital camera this will work on?

The lens will fit onto any of the Sony alpha-series digital SLRs.

Fog in the lense of

The fog is most likely lens fungus and is very difficult to remove, so is also expensive to remove. It's not suited to a DIY repair without special tools and equipment. Spare parts for your lens are practically unobtainable, and camera and lens repairers are much rarer these days.

With all due respect, your lens is nearly worthless even if in perfect condition, so your lens is totally beyond economic repair.

You have the following options (in no particular order):-

1. Discard your lens and replace it. You can find replacements very cheaply online, although you may need to be a little flexible as to what's acceptable. Tamron Adaptall-2 lenses can be very good and you can switch the lens mounting to fit your Minolta MD. Lesser-regarded brands such as Sunagor were also in reality very good lenses and their 80-250mm has a very similar effective focal length to your Vivitar. Hoya were also a less-regarded brand despite actually making many of the lenses for "better" brands (including Vivitar, from time to time). You can also find replacement lenses for free either by asking around friends and relatives or by looking/asking on FreeCycle and Gumtree, although it is harder to find them for Minolta than say, Canon, Nikon or Pentax. On the flip side I have had many complete and perfectly functional 35mm SLR outfits from FreeCycle, so if the lens comes with a body attached who's complaining?

2. If the fogging does not affect your images then live with it. if it does reduce contrast, then consider scanning your negatives/transparencies and using free software to repair the images.

3. Leave your lens out in daylight with the lens cap removed. Some of the common types of lens fungus are destroyed by UV light. It won't physically remove the fungus, nor will it repair any damage to the optical elements inside your lens, but it can recover an otherwise unusable lens. If the fogging inside is due to moisture instead, then the fogging may dissipate if the lens is left in a warm and sunny location which is well ventilated. Marks may remain, but they'll rarely affect image quality.

Good luck.

Vivitar 75-300mm lens

The Vivitar brand has been bought and sold quite a few times in the past 10 years.

KEH Camera has quite a few used Vivitar lenses listed on their website. They are priced very low, from just $4 to $49, so it's highly unlikely that the lens is worth repairing.

Camera says MSDC when i plug it in to charge

That's completely normal. The camera is simply acknowledging that it's connected to a computer. The MSDC will go away when you disconnect.

I have a Vivitar mini digital camera but no CD to load software. Where can I get software download?

Mostly additional software isn't needed as digital cameras invariably capture and store images in jpeg format that can be downloaded, viewed and stored on any Windows computer and probably most other types. Connect the camera to a usb port and switch on and the computer should recognise it and provide an onscreen menu. Once connected one of my cameras produces an onscreen menu where I have to select "connect to pc". An alternative to the above is to remove the memory card from the camera and use a card reader to access the pictures. The cd supplied with a digital camera is usually photo processing software, the like of which can be downloaded free from many online sources.

What to do when your vivitar camera stays white screen when camera comes on.

could be a stuck (broken) lens, broken CCD or broken LCD cable. (white light means backlight is working) I would suggest taking it to a repairman.
