Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera

3 Answers

New Vivtar Vivicam 5100 (a few minor issues)

First of all, when recording, I'm getting NO sound, at all. Second of all, I can't use it as a computer cam, it says driver not found, and I can't seem to find that software anywhere. I think thats all for now, I hope. Just got this today, going out drifting tonight and taking some soundless video to see how it works out. Quick responces would be awesome if possible. Later.

NO SOUND well when recording video it records sound, but this camera does not have a speaker, it cannot play sound back, when you transfer your videos to PC you will hear sound PC CAM You cud use the windows 98 mass storage device driver to make the webcam work, but the picture will be very dark, i suggest you look on ebay for the vivicam 5100 and ask one of the seller if they can sell u the CD, this is a very hard driver to find, ive had no luck either

The sound on my vivtar isnt working

The 8025 was designed primarily as a still camera, with some video features grafted on. As such, it captures images not sounds. You can add a soundtrack using video editing software on a computer, but the camera does not record any sound.

Okay yes i know that the vivtar 5022 doesn't have sound and people keep suggesting to download the video to get the sound.. but will the sound that you get from the video be the exact match as to what you...

Unless the video-editing program has a bug, the sound you add to the video will be exactly what you add. The ViviCam doesn't record sound at all, so the only soundtrack will be whatever you add.

I cant hear sound from my vivtar video?

The ViviCam was designed primarily as a still camera, with some video features grafted on. Audio was not one of the grafted features. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one using the camera.

I realize this wasn't the answer you were hoping to see, but there it is.

Cant find volume on the vivtar camera.....for recording!

That's because it isn't there. The ViviCam was designed primarily as a still camera and lacks audio recording capabilities.

I realize that probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Sound in vivicam 5399

I think you have a hardware problem. So you must check it one by one. But try to focus at your camera mic that location in the under the chasing. You can clean it or check it alive or not and it connected exactly with your board. If you have done and the problem still same, may be you can bring it to service center. Cause it's have a lot off explanation, from schema and component electricity.
