Question about Vivitar ViviCam 3785 Digital Camera
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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.

Remove all Camera Software.
Assuming you have a Windows Computer when the camera is plugged in and in the upload mode
The computer will recognise it as a new device in My Computer.

It should tranfer any data in SDRAM to the SD card. Download any thing of value to your PC and delete all the files on the camera. Format the SD card with the camera and see if it recognizes it.

Are your pics on the internal memory or the memory card? With no card in the camera, can you bring up the internal memory? If not, then any pics on it are gone. Your best bet at this point would be to format the internal memory to completely erase anything on it and vow never to use it. Is there anything on the memory card? You may have to use a card reader to find out.
Had you done your homework on this camera before buying it, you would have found out that nobody likes it. It's cheap and totally unreliable. Takes horrible pics and doesn't even have an optical zoom....only a terrible digital zoom. Saving the once in a lifetime pics from a vacation requires a much better camera.
