Fixing communication problem between camera and the PC is not a easy task and sometime you may have to invest a lot of time and come out no result. Easiest way is purchase a "CARD READER" from any electronic mega store for about $10-18. Plug it into back of your PC and setup. Now take the card out from your Vivicam and insert it into the card reader and you are done. If not sure then ask any of your family or friend age between 12 to 29 years old and it should take them just 10 minutes to make it ready for you. Good luck.
