Re: Sanyo VPC-S500 DIGITAL CAMERA
Did you installed to your computer the software CD you received with the camera?
In case of a positive answer, check whether the software you received, support the Vista (should be written on the CD).
If not, go to Sanyo web site and look for the relevant drivers for your camera and OS.

Any digital camera will work fine with Windows Vista without drivers. Just plug it in via your USB and Windows will detect it as an external device that you can find via My Computer. From there, you can browse through, transfer, and copy your photos and videos.
However, if you are really trying to install the actual Kodak Easyshare software, that software can be located at the below link:
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.
If it is a Digital Video camera such as a Sony Digital 8, then it will not work with Vista. The output signal is analog even though the camera is digital. If it is a MiniDV it should work. You may have to connect it through Firewire, Component, or RCA inputs for it to work.
Remove the Canon software and put it back in the box
Assuming you are using Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista the computer will find the camera all for its self- assuming the camera is switched on and set to the image upload mode[check your manual]
