Answers :

There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:
\015\012
\015\012** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
\015\012folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.
\015\012
\015\012If that does not work then do this:
\015\012
\015\012Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
\015\012"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
\015\012extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
\015\012right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
