Question about Vivitar ViviCam 5100 Digital Camera
I just changed over to Windows Vista, and the camera will not download pictures to the computer. Do I need a new driver, and is there one available for Vista programs?

I'm not familiar with the Vivicam, but most cameras do not require any software. You just plug in the cable to a USB port on the computer and then look in Start - My Computer for the camera's memory. If that does not work, try some other USB device to make sure the computer's USB port is actually working. A memory stick would be perfect to try. If the port does not work, take the computer back to the store and have them fix it. Probably just a matter of the ports not being enabled in the computer setup or a loose connection. If you have ports on both the front and back of the computer, try them. If all else fails, you could use a card reader. Many all-in-one printer devices have card readers and you can buy a little card reader for perhaps $25 so you can take the memory card out of the camera and read it on the computer.

I have Windows XP but not a driver for my camera
I can't download pictures from my Vivitar 3X 53405 anymore. It used to be so easy. A screen would pop up giving me a choice of what I wanted to do and that was that. Now I hear the sound like before but no box appears. I've checked all connections and I hear the sound I heard wheb it was working right but I see no box popping up.
I just changed to Windows Vista and the disc I have for my digital camera is for windows 98 only how can I get the right disc to update my camera with my computer?
windows vista does not recognize digital camera and won't download pictures
i cannot dowload my pictures to the pc the camera says connected to the pc but when i try to dl the box pops up and says nothing is connected?????????????????????
I have the same problem a lot of people seem to be having. I have a new computer with Windows Vista installed on it and now my camera isn't being recognized at all. It is like it isn't even plugged in or turned on. Just not there. I could buy a card reader for it but I would rather be advised if and when a new driver is created for Windows Vista to read this particular camera. Meanwhile, I can just use my old computer to download the pictures and then transfer them to my new computer. I am also thinking I might be able to burn a Linux CD and run it off the CD drive. Linux might be able to read it where Vista can't.
