Found "SIGMA" pocket photo viewer need assistance

  six-h 22:33 05 Dec 2008

This afternoon, I found the above, bout the size of a box of matches, designed to look like a book.
Seems to be undamaged, and displayed 4 sample pics before I deleted them!
When I connect to my PC it shows as a removable disk, but it cannot be accessed before formatting and this fails.
Any Ideas?

It needs a driver which is supplied on a mini disc when you purchase.

That's sad!
Is it not possible to download the driver from somewhere?
Google search for "SIGMA" or "SIG GMBH" uncovers nothing, so do I just bin it :-(
Seems a waste?

If you Google SIGMA Driver

Numerous results appear

Take your pick.

All the best

I've had a good look through those but can't imagine that the "Sigma" company which shows up would make something as tatty and plasticy as this little pocket/keyfob picture viewer!

Looks like it's destined for landfill!!

It cost £9.95 and also performs as an LED light.

It recharges with a mini usb cable

You've got it exactly!
My only other possible use for it, lacking the necessary driver, is as a USB rechargable light!
That is if it will allow me to charge it without a driver. lol
Do you have one?

Yes I have one and it contains its own software. It should charge ok if you plug it in.

Japanese optical company Sigma has long been renowned for its camera lenses range and now its quality digital SLR camera.

Since I can't access it, can you tell me how much memory it has?
Mine just says "0 bytes used" and "0 bytes free"!

I'll give it a "stay of execution" if I can at least charge it to be able to use the light!

Yes, I found their web site whilst looking for this manufacturer, though the same name, I don't think there is any connection.
The SD14 Camera looks the biz. but a bit rich for my wallet!
I bought the Sony A 300 bundle from Jessops in the end....yet to use it, sitll studying the manual!

Its 8 mb. works on 2000 XP or higher? It installs DPF 1.8 Select PhotoViewers from a cd rom.
