A driver is a piece of software used by your computer to communicate with a particular peripheral, like your camera or scanner. If your driver isn't updated or properly installed, it may stop your camera from communicating with your PC. This could lead to an abundance of error messages. Drivers are regularly updated, and new versions can help fix problems and bring a significant improvement in performance. There are two main reasons to upgrade drivers. Incompatibility is the most frequent problem solved by a new driver release. And new drivers optimize the communication speed and task sharing between a processor and a peripheral. A new driver can increase performance as much as 50 percent. You can sign up to receive notifications of driver updates from HP.

What,exactly, is the driver I need to install & plug in?


The driver is the software that lets Windows 10 recognize external equipment and connect to it. You plug it in by connecting the camera with the USB lead.

Legacy instructions


Perhaps you should reinstall the software from Fuji. Windows 7 needs other drivers, that could not be the problem, because they should be in the package. but the software from your camera.

Problems downloading from camera using windows 7 - error message say windows XP required - is it possibel to upgrade software to be compatible with windows 7


If your OS is Win7 64 bit, then incompatibility must be occur because Windows XP use 32bit Operating System and driver software usually only special for each OS (x32 or x64). About upgrading the software, how will you upgrade while you can't even install the basic software in your PC ? The choice you have is find another driver that compatible with your OS, you can search via Google, and I hope you are lucky enough to get it available or even free to download.
If you still want to upgrade, then the Windows7 is the one to be upgraded so you can use XP Mode system. You must have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate to run Windows XP Mode. You can visit microsoft.com for details.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

Can't use VPC-CG9 as PC camera.


I don't know why this wouldn't work on Vista HP, but this excerpt from the manual suggests that your XP SP1 Pro would not work without the SP2 rollup:

"Please perform the following upgrades before connecting the camera to a computer.
-Upgrade Windows XP to SP2.
Install Windows XP SP2.
-Install Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version.
Download Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version, and install it.
-If using MSN Messenger, please install MSN Messenger 7.0 or later
version."

Perhaps if you are following the steps exactly in the manual and it still does not work, upgrading Messenger will magically help.

Windows Vista driver for Orite PC Digital multiple camera CS 780


Hi there. That has been a problem with Vista from the start. Vista wasn't released with too much 3rd party program involvement. That's why everyone hates Vista.
You have to go to the company that supplies your software and stay on them about being Vista compliant...or chose another brand of software. Sorry, but that is the truth.
Go to the maker of your software and post them. Put your 2 cents in that they become Vista compliant.
It's either that, or go back to XP like soooo many other people have done.

Software Upgrade

This error message indicates that the drivers are not digitally signed by Microsoft. In the event that you receive the error message referenced above, please continue with the install. Despite the fact that these particular drivers have not received the digital signature from Microsoft, they will work on Windows XP.

If you have difficulty installing the software from a direct update through the web, download the file first to your PC and then run it from there, if possible. Should you still have difficulties, try a clean boot of the camera software as explained here:

Hope that helps. Kindly take a moment to rate this solution a Fixya if you found it helpful. thanks.

I've just purchased a Logitech Quickcam communicate STX. Unfortunately it can not be detected by my machine, asking for software/drivers. The Software that came with it tells me that I need Windows Service...


Chances are you are going to have to upgrade your service pack. The drivers probably need parts of the upgrade to function. Sorry but there are some goods points to sp2 or even the new sp3. Better security and stablility in windows plus your quickcam should work.

Hope this helps. M~

Windows NT4 and Windows 2000


Windows 2000 A new camera TWAIN driver (version 0.1) compatible with Windows 2000 is now available for download. The new TWAIN driver will allow photo transfer using most image viewing or editing programs that are TWAIN compatible. NOTE: In order for the version 0.1 driver to work correctly, the PhotoMAX software must also be compatible with Windows 2000. The PhotoMAX SE software originally included with the Fun! Flash 640 is not compatible with Windows 2000. If you use your camera and computer with the original PhotoMAX SE software, contact the Polaroid Parts Department for more information about purchasing a PhotoMAX software upgrade. Windows NT4 No TWAIN driver is available for use with Windows NT4.
