For Christmas I got a new Vivitar 5100. I was really happy and ready to take pictures. When I was done I installing the CD i couln't find where to get the pictures and videos. The manual says something about a Removable Disk. What I'm asking is where do I find the pictures and what is a removable disk and where do I find it?

When you plug it in, you'll notice a new icon pop up on your desktop or in your My Computer menu (whether you're on a Mac or PC) and the camera will show up looking like a disk drive. That's probably what it referred to as a removable disk. So you can go into that folder and sometimes there will be subfolders in it, but the pictures and videos should be in there somewhere. Then you just drag and drop the pictures you want on your computer to your computer's Hard Drive.
I'm not too sure about the Vivitar 500, but most cameras you don't have need to use their install CDs (it's mostly software from them that they want you to use). You can just plug the camera in directly to the USB and it'll show up from there as a removable disk drive (as mentioned above).
