I just recently upgraded my pc from Windows XP to Windows Vista now my Praktica Slimpix won't work, which it did before. It says 'Connection Error' now & I've made sure I've downloaded the right drivers (as I have the CD & tried a different one online) What is the problem? Why won't be USB ports recognize my camera?

Re: Praktica Slimpix & Vista Problem
I have heard that other people experience problems with un-available Vista drivers (not particularly your item)...either check camera's website for new driver, or wait it out until they write one or go back to XP

This is very SHORT, one page discription and only mostly general and global specifications. Manual not available now for free. So if you want, you may have a look at this global specifications for Practika Slimpix 500.
You would need to download and install the Windows Vista driver from the webcam manufacturers website. You should be able to find it by clicking on the support link and looking up your specific model #. Hope this helps.
You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or
Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by
purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista. While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's
important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to
ensure the features you want will run reliably.
