Ive just got vista and was on xp before my praktica dc slim 500 camera worked fine as both web cam and mass strage but now the drivers i got wont work and i cant seem to figger it out. was hoping you might know what i can do to fix this problem.
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.

If the 10 most hated cameras in the world were listed, this camera would be on the list.
My advice is don't even try to turn it on.
If you turn it on and use it and then look at the result you will be sorry you turned it on.
It was made in 2005 and was an instant failure.
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 ...
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
