I have a Vivitar DVR 688 camera and Xp will not recognise it.
The disc that came with it only has drivers for '98 & ME.
I have searched the net but I can find nothing.
Another company, Sakar took over Vivitar, but they don't
have the model listed.
Any help will be appreciated.

Mike.

It looks like it should appear as a USB mass storage device under XP, driver only required for Win98. What happens when the camera is plugged into a USB port?

You tried running the XP Camera/Scanner Wizard?

Thank You both,

Platypus, at your suggestion, I selected, on the camera, "Disc", as mass storage,
the PC recognised it.

Hamluis, I never thought of that, I will try it.

Thanks again.

Mike.
