Polaroid Photomax Fun 320 Driver for Windows

Hi, Chieh Cheng,

I wrote in your site a question about how to make a serial cable for the digital camera "Polaroid PhotoMAX Fun! Digital 320 Camera". You answer, and I did a good cable, i think it works, but now i have another problem; i use Windows XP Pro and download the latest drivers for this camera, but after i restart the computer i try to add a digital camera in the windows control panel and i only see Olympus, Kodak, Agfa drivers... but where is my polaroid? I install in windows ME too, and this happen again! The guys that made this drivers are stupids? And the software program, i am trying to find it, very dificult to find: Polaroid Photomax SE 2.1

Do you know another good program?

Details about the driver: (FYI: i get the driver today: saturday, 16 of october, 2004)

Information
o/s: Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP
version: 2.2L
size: 3.55 mb
date: 07/16/2001

File: "320camv2_2l.exe"

Try the instruction manual or the quick start guide.

Dilver, this is two years late but hope it helps someone...

That driver is a TWAIN driver. It is more like a scanner driver than a Windows camera driver. No new camera will show up in the list of cameras. After you install the driver, you need to run a program like Photoshop that can do an image capture from a TWAIN device (it will be in the menu, something like file/acquire/TWAIN). Then you select the Polaroid 320 from the list of TWAIN devices, and the driver will pop up a window which displays thumbnails of all the pictures on the camera allowing you to select one. When you select one, the image will load into the application so you can edit or save it. (Photoshop seems to allow you to select multiple images, but it looks like The Gimp only lets you select one).

Hope this helps, but even if you get images out of this camera, in my experience the image quality is extremely low, entirely apart from the fact that they're 320x240...

Good luck! -Mike.

Thanks for the info! I bought this thing in a box of PC cables and other items, and wanted to have it in the car for emergencies or UFO!!! AAAHHHHH

Anyway, great to know, I can use this piece of junk now.

Again, thanks for the info!

FYI for anyone who might be buying this camera, or planning on using it beyond what I plan, it does NOT take great photos inside. Have not tried outside, but do not have high hopes. You have to remain completely still for it to take a halfway decent pic.

Anyway, everyone have a great day!
