Your fine camera is for standard definition, like 480 lines. Your display can show 1050 lines, so at full screen you see stairsteps. Try to view in actual size or sit back when enjoying full screen.

A Yamaha music file that I bought is MFW and won't download.

It appears that if the file is mfw, it's not a music file. Here:
Raw image format used by Mamiya digital cameras; similar to the .MEF file extension; contains image data in an uncompressed format that appears the same way as it was captured by the camera's sensor; photo settings such as brightness and exposure can be altered by editing software after the image is imported into the computer.
File used by MobileFrame Desktop, an administrative application for the MobileFrame mobile application environment; contains additional workflow functions used when developing mobile applications for the MobileFrame environment.

Need image imager software to download

You don't need any special software.

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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( ).

How do I make my pictures bigger and not pixerlated

if you increase image size, it gets pixelated. there is no way to make it bigger, but not pixelated. except taking a similar photo with a better camera.

SD card not transfering raw files to computer completely

Please remove the SD card from the camera. Connect the SD card to the computer using the external memory card reader and then transfer all the images in the computer or laptop. Then try to open all the images.

Lost my disc and I have a new computer and I can't down load my pics.

You can also transfer images from your Camera to a computer without using any Software. Follow the very simple steps that I'm mentioning here next.
Connect the camera to a computer using the supplied USB cable. Once the computer recognizes the camera, the camera icon should appear in the computer. Now, further procedure completely depends on the Operating System that is installed in your Computer. If you're using Windows Operating system, then the camera icon will appear in the "My computer" window or if you're using Mac then you can view the camera icon on the Desktop.
Next, what you've to do is to double click on the Camera icon to view all the files and folders. Next, locate the folder that stores images. Usually the name of the folder that stores images starts with dsc... So, open the image folder and use the mouse and keyboard to select all the images.

In windows, use ctrl + A Keys combination to select all the files, ctrl+C to copy all the selected files. Next, navigate to the location on the computer where you'd like to save all your images. Once you've selected the location on the hard drive, press the ctrl+V Keys combination. This will paste all the copied items.

Free Download for Vivitar Experience Image Manager


Could not find a download for you on their website.

You know you can download your pictures manually without the image manager. From the manual:

1. Use the USB cable that came with your camera to connect your camera to your computer.
2. A window appears with a list of options, select Open folder to view files and click OK.
3. Open the DCIM folder and the folder inside to view the media files.
4. Select the media and copy the files from this folder into your computer. Optionally, select the files and choose Copy from the Edit menu. Then select a folder and choose Paste from the Edit menu.
5. We recommend that you copy the images into the Pictures/My Pictures folder and the videos into the Videos/My Videos folder.
6. Do not disconnect the cable during transfer. Doing so will cancel the transfer of any files on their way to your computer.

If you still want to try to get the Image Manager software, I would suggest contacting Vivitar support at:

Computer does not recoznise images file

.Nef is Nikon's RAW image identifier. See if there's an update for iPhoto at Mac website. Perhaps your camera (if it's new) is not yet set up to upload to iPhoto. You didn't indicate what camera you're using.

Download photos

aconnect camera with usb cable to computer.
your computer should see the new hardware and recognize it, install a driver on its own. this assumes you are running a later model os, like windows xp, xphome or pro. a pop up window may open and ask you if you want to download the images. you can follow this through and have them downloaded, or you can close the box, right click on the start icon, select 'explore' and scroll down the list of items until you get to the camera. click on it, and follow through clicking until you have a file folder with jpegs in it. then click on 'select all' under edit at the explorer tool bar. then click copy. then select the drive you wish to copy the files to, and create a new folder and name it as you like. then right click on the folder and select 'paste'. your images will start to download to the new folder.
they will also be on the camera until you remove them.
once you are certain you have downloaded all the images or at least the ones you want, you can go to the menu of the camera and reformat the memory card. it will quickly erase (many times faster than you can erase the images) the stored data and ready the card for reuse.
alternately you can get a card reader for usb2 if you have a usb 2 slot on your computer. remove your compact flash card from the camera and put it into the usb card reader. the computer will once again go through the process of finding the hardware, asking you if you want to download the images. you can again elect to either download all from there, or go to explore and do the same thing, but this time looking for the card reader. it might appear as a multiple of new drive letters. one of them will have canon eos as a label and a file named dcim most likely. copy your images off, and when you are certain they all came off, either delete the images from the card, or do a reformat in the camera.
good luck
