As already addressed by Benimur, the camera will be recognized by Windows as a generic mass storage device.
This means that if you open Computer, on Start menu you will find a new removable hard drive.

Connect Vivitar to USB
Open computer under Start Menu.
Explore all removable hard drives until you find the camera.
Once you find the external hard drive corresponding to your Vivitar, there should be a folder with pictures inside.

Try it out.

We use our camera for passports, so having the pictures stay in the camera, then hook to camera up to the passport photo printer, is the easiest way to go. Recently, I ended up taking lots of pictures, so I moved the passport photos off of the card and onto the computer. When I was done, I put the passport photos back onto the card (after removing the new photos), but now the camera says there are no pictures, even though I can view them through the computer using the USB cable attatched to the

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print

Photos unread I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW with the same problem. When I upload photos, some are corrupted and are chopped with parts of the photo misplaced. It has nothing to do with computer as it does this on all computers. I'm not using a reader, but simply uploading VIA USB cable. Some photos are so corrupted, I cannot even get a partial view of the choppy remnant of the photo taken. Could this be a memory card problem or a camera problem? I don't know.
