Is the card over 2GB ? This camera will only take cards up to 2GB

Sounds like you used the computer to erase the card. The camera doesn't recognize any actions taken by the computer. 1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. Insert the card into the camera, find "format" in the menu and follow the directions.

Hey, no problem, I did not know what you were saying anyway but Samsung camera, I know. Getting a part would be difficult in US also. I believe our part department has been tracing and pursuing to obtain parts from the Samsung Factory in New Jersey without any success. They may have closed it and assigned the task to a very small supplier. Better to find LCD screen from a broken unit in the internet perhaps in EBAY?? You may have to wait for a broken lens unit with good LCD. Good Luck. For further request, send our company a request email we may have one since we purchase tons of used digital cameras such as your situation. www.camerarepairjapan.com

I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.

By default, Windows uses a 32bit FAT when formatting which is NOT compatible with most cameras. I'd suggest sticking to using the camera menus for formatting a card, unless the camera can't format one (then, if you must use a PC for formatting, make SURE you select FAT as the File System Type). I'd also recommending formatting again with the camera menus before using a card if you ever do need to format one with a PC. As for your problem with the laptop seeing the card, it could be any number of things. It's more likely related to the USB drivers. Many users report intermittent problems with USB connectivity after upgrading to SP2. A frequent solution that sometimes works is removing all devices drivers related to USB (My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager). Then, rebooting and letting Windows find and reinstall the drivers again. Sometimes, updating these drivers can work, too. You may also be seeing a conflict between other USB devices and drivers. For example, sometimes HP Printer Monitor software conflicts with USB connectivity to other devices. You may also want to try a different USB Port. If all else fails, consider a Card Reader (they're very inexpensive now -- you can probably pick up a USB 2.0 card reader for around $20.00 locally). With a laptop, you may also want to consider a PCMCIA based reader.

Did you try to copy the files to your computer first then open them? While the SD is in the reader, you should run a chkdsk on the SD drive to make sure there are no lost clusters etc. maybe the file table is corrupted...
