Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera ?

I have the camera plugged into the computer and the screen turns blue and says msdc


Answers :

That's perfectly normal. The camera is merely acknowledging the connection to the computer. You control the picture download process from the computer.\012\012\012

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer. 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
