Default vivitar installation help

I have a vivitar ViviCam2775. It came with image expert software that I have installed. My manual states that "PC" should display in the camera's status window when the camera is connected to computer. It is there, however, when I try to retrieve pictures, the computer says it is not connected. I have never used this camera before. Did I not complete the installation process. Thanks for any help.

Default 9 pin adapted to 25

I was told by a computer store tech...AH there is my problem!, that I could connect the camera into a 25 pin port and used an adapter to do so as he suggested. Yes i did the restart thing as software said.
I have been sceptical of going from the 9 pin (camera cord) into the 25 pin on tower.

Download camera/interface software from Vivitar for your specific camera. WARNING: IF you have a CD Burner and use any ADAPTEC/ROXIO EZCD based burner programs, you WILL have major problems. Even Vivitar's solution is not a solution but a poor dodge of the actual problem. E-mail me if you need more info. Also, all 25-pin ports are NOT printer ports! just an FYI. Printer ports are the direct opposite configuration of 25-pin Serial ports.
