Where can you find downloadable software for a Sony Digital Video Camera Recorder that will allow your Mac to recognize the camera and let you edit your movies using iMovie?
Answer1: Go to, sony.com. Click on service & support. Click on drivers/software. Fill in information needed on the following screens. Answer 2: Any Video Converter Ult…imate for Mac released by Anvsoft Inc. could allow your mac to recognize the camera, and could convert to a iMovie format, and then you can edit the video on your iMovie.
Answer . Anything that may be custom made to get the files out of your camera should come with it. Generally, your PC will have a program for viewing, but with limited fe…atures. You may want to touch-up or resize pictures for printing or emailing. I rarely use a photo "as is", so it doesn't hurt to check what is included. Sometimes the camera will come with software for organizing and possibly an editor with "essential" features. That can save you some money. There are also a number of editors that come in a downloadable demo version to give you a feel for what the full version can do. . Helpful hint: make backup copies of precious photos and write-protect one set, so you don't accidentally delete or over-write them. Save a copy to CD or DVD and put in a safe place in case of a PC problem.
when you get the camera you will get a CD too. that is where you get your software!!
What do you do if you connect your camera to the serial port of your computer but its software fails to recognize the camera?
This is more of a computer related question than a photography question and can turn out to be very involved and complicated. I suggest you "Google" something like 'camera ser…ial port' and scan the results. If you post a question on a related forum, you will have to provide information that you neglected to provide here. What's relevant is: - did it work before or is this a new setup? - what is your computer platform (PC or Mac? - what is your operating system (Windows & version, Mac OS X)? - do you know your current COM port assignments? Here's one search result that might get you started (it may be too old for your OS): http://www.imaging-resource.com/TIPS/SDEBUG1/SDEBUG1.HTM

Turn it on? There are, of course other ways to get the pictures from the camera to your system (assuming that your 'system' is a PC), and that is to take out the SD card (no…rmally near the battery compartment, but it maybe somewhere else), and insert it into a PC card reader. If your PC doesn't have one of these, then you can pick them up relatively cheaply these days. Failing that, then do what you've already posted. Good luck!
If you are shooting .jpg files on your camera (you probably are), you can download them simply by copying to your computer.
Very few Vivitar cameras come with Mac OS X support the software is often for Windows computers. Try connecting the camera to the Mac with the USB cable, turn the camera on, a…nd see if iPhoto or the Image Capture application recognises it. If the camera has a removable memory card then the addition of a card reader may help. Specific details of camera and version of Mac OS X would help.
It is impossible for software alone to "act as a camera". You have to have at least a minimum amount of hardware as well, such as an imaging chip.
The camera should come with a CD and cables to connect to the computer. Read the handbook. You will need to put the CD in the computer and it should automatically download the… software. If you don't have the CD go on line and download from Kodak.
You can get a camra software at n electronics store. Try Fry's for example. They have everything there.
