PROBLEMS START: Laptop wouldn't read CD, so I had to use my desktop to copy drivers over to a thumbdrive. Drivers installed easily after that on my WinXP-Home Laptop. Using included software, device works GREAT as a webcam. Then I disconnected it from the USB cable and it has NOT WORKED SINCE as a standalone camera. Will NOT TURN ON. Changed batteries, everything. Thought maybe a button was stuck...nope. But it STILL WORKS AS A WEBCAM when I reconnect it to the computer via USB cable.
PROS: Cute little camera (if it still worked). Takes videos (up to 200 seconds with built-in 16MB memory- not expandable!)
CONS: Videos DO NOT have sound...this is a BIG downer for a kid thinking she would be able to make videos of her & her friends.
If you read the FAQ at aiptek.com they say it doesn't record audio w/video. This device will record audio (sound), but as a voice recorder, not as part of a video (seperate functions).
DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA if you think it would be a cheap way of getting a digital camera in the hands of your kid. Many people have had problems with AIPTEK products. You get what you pay for (in my case, I got less).
other then that i like the camera so far.

I like this little camera. The video is fairly low quality but is perfect to post up on a web site for downloading since the file sizes are small. Read morePublished on December 25, 2002 by Chris Leathco
