Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 2800 Digital Camera ?

I got a new computer & my old software for the USB won't work. Where can I get anew one for a new computer? Or can I? I have a Vivitar 2800 camera. The computer is windows XP.


Answers :

Unfortunately no software may be compatible with this camera due to its age. I believe it is only supported with up to windows 98. You can try this driver here:

If that doesn't work I would consider upgrading to a new camera as they are relatively cheap and a camera that is considerably better is about 50$
Thank you,

My first upload of pictures from a new Vivitar V25 camera (a budget model). I have 15 photos on the camera to upload. After starting the upload, the third photo has vertical lines on one side on the uploaded copy only, and then the uploads stalls, with a final Windows message of "v25.exe has stopped working". I have tried restarting my computer, checking cable connection with camera; nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
