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.

Did you try leaving the camera connected to the usb port and restarting your computer? At startup windows should detect it. Do you have the software that came with the camera installed? Or maybe search for updated software from the camera manufacturers website.
You shouldn't need any extra software to download your pictures. Most digital cameras are accessible through windows just by plugging them in. Then you can browse through your camera and copy them accross manually. I imagine the Sanyo disc may have had a program that made this automated but I doubt you will find it for download as it would probably have copyrighted material on it. In any case I cannot find it for download.
You have loaded images previously- so it works OK huh!
Your are Windows XP/2000 -tell me
Remove any software you may have loaded that came with the camera,
Now plus the camera in, switch it to the 'upload position' and it should appear in my computer
as an extra drive - and/or Camera/Scanner wizard will come up and ask what to do next.
If you have the CD - there is a manual on it in PDF format- you do not need any software to load images.
