Question about Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera
When my computer tries to generate a thumbnail for movies files it shuts down whatever program is attempting to open the file. This only happens in XP and not on a Mac. Because of this I cannot transfer any files from my camera unless I do not take video.
Another problem coulb be the codec. A codec is a language that the computer needs to comunicate to the opperating system. It is probobly using mpeg4 wich is a quicktime and that is apple. Your windows doesnt have that format installed so its not understanding the comunication. Have you installed all the disks that came with your cameras? it may need to be updated. Go to micrisoft update and check for some XP updates. There are codec packs you can install that cover most of the common movie formats used.

Hi first of all this isnt the camera's fault clean your computer (cookies, history, recent, temp ,internet temp) view the cam folder as a "list" or "details" NOT "thumbnail" then just copy all the files into your computer and then view as thumbnail good luck
