- I have Windows XP. Do I need a special driver?
A: If you have Windows XP. Go to our webpage: http://www.meade.com/sportsoptics/catalog/captureview/index.html
and download the CaptureView Certified Windows XP Driver. These drivers will automatically install and you will be able to
easily connect to the camera.
Tip: If you are using Windows XP with a Pentium IV processor, Windows may ask you to install the driver more
than once. If this is the case, follow the prompts in the "Install Driver Window", and continue to install the
Driver as many times as Windows prompts you to. Normally this will only be 3 times. When Windows stops asking you to
"Install New Drivers", the Scopecam driver will have been successfully installed.
- Can I take pictures in cold weather?
A: Your CaptureView Binocular is rated to be used from 41F - 104F (5 to 40C), 20%-85% relative humidity,
non-condensing. Using your camera in below freezing tempertures may not allow the camera to function normally, and may
cause the batteries to lose their charge more quickly.
- The Ulead Photo Express program doesn't see my camera. What do I do?
A: Make sure the camera is plugged in to the USB port of your computer. Verify that "Scopecam" appears as
the data source within the Ulead Photo Express program.
If "Scopecam" does not show as the "Data Source" you will need to select "Change Device
Type" and then select "Digital Camera".
If you see a message prompting you to "please choose data source", Select the "Scanner" and then
scopecam will appear in the data source. Then select "Change Device Type" and choose "Digital Camera".
The Ulead program should now see the camera.
If this does not solve the problem, you may need to uninstall the Driver and then Re-install it.
- The Ulead Photo Express program doesn't see my CaptureView Binoculars, and the CaptureView is stuck on the
"PC" setting. What should I do?
A: If your CaptureView Binoculars become stuck on the "PC" setting, The Ulead Photo Express will not be
able to "See" the camera. Take out the two AAA batteries and leave them out for approximately 5 minutes. This
will delete everything from the memory of the CaptureView Binoculars and they will function normally after the batteries
are replaced. Unfortunately you will lose all the pictures that were stored in the camera, but the camera will function
again normally, and the Ulead program will be able to connect with it.
- I have more than one USB port on my computer. Does it matter which one I use to connect the camera?
A: You can use any USB port. But it is important to note that you will have to install the "Scopecam"
Driver each time you use a new port other than the original port you connected the camera to the first time.

A: Follow any prompts on your computer. Reboot your computer if necessary. Then attempt to Install the Software
