Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 25 Digital Camera ?

I just purchased a Vivicam 25. I installed the CD and then tried to put a few pictures that I took onto my computer, but it is not working. Whenever I try to connect the USB cable to the computer, I get a message that says that the driver is not recognized. I already tried uninstalling and re-installing, and that didn't work. Not sure what the problem is.



Answers :

I was logged into my computer as a "User" not an "Administrator," and when I went to install the Vivitar Image Manager cd, nothing happened--I found out that you have to be logged on your computer as an administrator to start the process--although, in previous such instances a dialogue box would pop up informing me of that fact, I found out that that (contrary to my previous assumption) was not the case with this program, or possibly, other external programs..I'm not sure this is directly applicable to this situation, in that I didn't get ANY dialogue box, related to drivers or anything else, but it seems like a similar potential problem for somebody.

USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable. I connect the camera to my computer using the USB, then after 10 seconds its says there is no device connected to the computer, and then it gives me option to cancel, retry, or continue but it usually connects automatically itself again. The only problem is that I can't do anything with pictures can't copy, delete, or view them. I'ce already tried to delete and reinstall the driver.
