Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-CD400 Digital Camera ?

I can't get a Sony 3" disk to work. The screen says "No Disk" that's it then it rumbles, clicks nad spins...What's up?


Answers :

You probably need to clean the drive heads .. you can do that with a "cleaning disk" .. that looks like a normal 3" disk but has a fiber like disk .. on some you add a couple of drops of cleaning fluid ..on others you just run it dry ..
here is an example of a cleaning kit .. ...
http://www.amazon.com/Kensington-Disk-Drive-Cleaning-3-5in/dp/B000067S3R

you might find it for less .. prehaps at radio shack .. or one of the electronic stores ..

here is one on ebay ...........

sometimes you have to take the drive out and manually clean the heads but thats a big and messy job .. once in a while the drive has some other defect but usually its just dirty heads ..

My son got a vivitar vs18b camera. The packaging says Mac compatible but when we put the image zone disk in nothing happens. I've tried clicking on the 2 files after opening the disk icon and nothing happens. I tried the Vivitar Website and found no solutions. One spot had to download the "experience software". I got a link to a blank page. Any ideas how to get the pictures from the camera to our Mac?


Try to get your money back for the camera. If not, go buy your son a better camera. Vivitar has no drivers for anything. Only what comes with the camera (WinXP only). Plus the viewfinder is junk, and the camera loses all store pictures when the b ... Digital Cameras
