There's no solution, I'm afraid. I've talked to the manufacturer as I have exactly the same problem. They have not created a Vista driver for this camera, and have stated categorically that they will not be doing so in the future.

My computer won't recognize my Praktica MicroPix: "USB Device Not Recognized". I have installed, uninstalled & reinstalled MYDSC several times, but no success. Any recommendations?

here are drivers.. they will work for up to XP .. they might also work in Vista (you may have to use XP compatibility mode) .. if you are using Vista or Win7 then you might want to try that with your present drivers ...

No web cam found

It may not be detected by windows or the device manager till the correct driver is installed and can initialize the device (Power it Up)

Try Searching Acers website for a Vista version of your driver , and be sure to make sure you pick the correct bit (ie; 32bit drivers will only work with 32bit vista, and 64 with 64)

Need driver for PRAKTICA DC Slim 315

Sounds like you have set it to PC Cam mode. If you put it in Mass Storage mode, you don't need a driver to use it.

To put it in Mass Storage mode: Hold the Mode button while it's turned on. Select the 3rd option that appears (looks like a Swiss army knife) by pressing the button to take a photo.

Scroll down and change USB Mode to Mass Storage.

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
