  • @khim said: That's strange. Wikia very explicitly says: "will work on Windows XP" https://3dmoviemaker.fandom.com/wiki/System_Requirements_for_3DMM Well atleast is there a fix to this "We can't get information we need from a file" …
  • @SomeGuy said: If you really want a working camera of this model, another one will probably turn up on eBay for a few bucks eventually. No, I just wanted the model that I already had to just work and take pictures, that's all. Oh and vide…
  • @yourepicfailure said: Something internal explains it. Components can come loose and make connections some times and sometimes not. Likely, placing it back into use put a bit of physical strain and over time was just enough to make it l…
  • However I tried it on Windows XP 32-bit and it spits out "We can't get information we need from a file", this fucking thing happens everytime..
  • @khim said: It's possible (even likely!) that it has some 16bit components. Support for 16bit mode was removed by AMD from 64bit mode (so you could either have 16bit components and 32bit components or 32bit components and 64bit components …
  • @yourepicfailure said: Something got corroded, most definitively a solder joint. Do you mean one of the battery terminals? Well I tried fixing them and it still didn't work. If you mean internal, then it is over. This discussion ends here…
  • Nope. Doesn't work. Goodbye camera..
  • I also tried 2 more rechargable batteries. That's right. I bought another pair of rechargables. On accident by the way. While I was in a store I saw some AAA batteries that were supposedly "rechargable". I asked the cashier if they had bigger ones. …
  • Nope. Hopeless. The camera turns on then turns off. It never turns on when I put rechargables in. Only alkalines. And the black screen thing is still there. Atleast I tried... Rest in peace.
  • GODDAMNIT! THE BLACK SCREEN THING IS STILL THERE!!!! >:( I am guessing the rechargables have to be charged fully so... charging they go! I think now is the time to update that firmware if I follow the instructions it came with... that is... if …
  • It connected to the computer!! Unfortunately all data was wiped...
  • HOLY SHIT, THE CAMERA STARTED WORKING AGAIN!!!!!!! However, the fucking camera doesn't work when I put rechargables in, so I have to put alkalines (ironically...) but the camera turns on and turns off again. I need to figure out a way to make it wo…
  • Nope. The camera is with confirmation officially dead. It cannot be reserved back into original state... Damn. And I got the rechargables for it... Rest in peace. Atleast it got to see it's 15th birthday before dying.
  • Hmmm... I will still try to make it work. I tried scraping the battery terminals again but nothing happened so the problem are the batteries. I will charge the batteries and try to turn on the camera with it for a week or so. I still have hope in it…
  • @Bry89 said: @Windows99SE said: And the fact that people continue to use it just amazes me. I mean, it's their choice. Not mine. If I wanted to go online under an obsolete OS, I'd rather have Windows 2000. And that's m…
  • @nick99nack said: @Windows99SE said: It is nice to see Windows XP still getting updates despite being discontinued for over 5 years now. Is Windows XP basically immortal at this point? Was it so influental that it is refusing to die…
  • It is nice to see Windows XP still getting updates despite being discontinued for over 5 years now. Is Windows XP basically immortal at this point? Was it so influental that it is refusing to die despite there being better OSes out there? If so then…
  • Wow! Nice that we have the earliest version of Longhorn in here. I am not sure how the Microsoft lawyers would feel about this... Probably another cease and desist letter.
  • Actually I just realized some of the critics in 2004 were right. This camera has alot of flaws which might explain its rarity and failure at success. First off, with SD cards back then holding 2GB, which was quite alot back then, you would expect th…
  • @yourepicfailure said: Give yourself credit, you got it working. Albeit briefly, but working. Hopefully you gain some lifelong experience that may help you in the future when troubleshooting other related things. Yeah, I should feel good …
  • Yep. It now doesn't work. Tried recharging batteries and even charging them to full. Nothing. It is now dead... Atleast it got used for one last time after it has been neglected.
  • I actually tried to update the firmware a while ago and it didn't do shit. So the firmware is ruled out. And reinserting the batteries (the method I tried like 20 times) didn't work either. So yeah, this is going to be the end of the post. The…
  • col9017a.exe September 23, 2005. Goddamn this is so old and rare. Where did you dig this out from? Also what firmware version is this? My old firmware version was "v1.00_N v3.7".
  • No webpages on how to reset it to factory settings, although found some reviews for this back in 2004. Monday, November 29, 2004 320x240 for video? Thats worse than a creative 1mp camera that i picked up over 2 years ago, that did 352x288 b…
  • Nope, not even one mention on how to hell you factory reset this camera.
  • I need to figure out how to hell to factory reset the camera first. Maybe the manual can help.
  • @yourepicfailure said: See if you can find a firmware update The problem is, the "firmware update" for THIS camera is really fucking hard to find. I don't even think that this camera even had a firmware update to begin with. @yourep…
  • Huh. I guess this is the end of the post. The fucking camera just destroyed itself on me. And I was getting to the fun stuff... like tampering with the camera settings (btw which has nothing to do with the black screen.), taking pictures and zooming…
  • I wonder if Windows 7 will share the same fate as Windows XP. Extended support ends in 2020 but people continue to use for 5 more years.
  • So I charged the rechargables to max, inserted the batteries in and what was the result? Unfortunately, still black screen. Anyone has other tips? Or is this the end of the post...
