Question about Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to view videos on PC

I'm backpacking at the moment and put this down to the computers I'm using not having the correct downloads. However, my Dad has looked at my CD's at home and comes across the same problems. The videos seem to load with no problems but then only play the sound track with no image. Has anyone else had this problem. Is it a setting on the camara or a separate download. I hope anyone can help, I sent the manual etc home ages ago so can't refer to that for help! Thanks

Re: Unable to view videos on PC

Try playing with the different resolutions/fps for movie recording, maybe a different setting will work. Regarding playback on the computer - I use VLC media player, and when it can't open a video, I find that there's nothing else that can. It's one way to get an estimate on the question if the problem is in the camera or PC. If you want to use quicktime you'll have to get some codecs for it - DivX - XviD etc. I guess that the supplied Digimax Viewer should also be able to play the movies, it would seem strange if not, but who knows. Good luck

I have a Samsung SL620 digital camera with a Lexar 4GB SD card. It plays great videos and I am able to view them on my computer. However, when I put the SD into the USB of my Samsung LN46C630 LCD...

Probably because the tv doesn't have the correct circuitry to play videos. If you have a VHS recorder connected to the tv, you could download the video to a tape and play it that way. I have a Dish Network HD DVR. It has a usb connector allowing me to download to the DVR and play slide shows and videos.

Optio E30 unable to download photos?

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use ACDSee or any other photo cataloging program.

Unable to unload pictures from camera to computer

I've never used a "program" to download my photos, and I've been able to download them on any computer whatsoever. Plug the mini-B into the camera, then plug the USB into your desktop while it is off. Turn the camera on with the switch in View mode. Turn your computer on. Go to Windows explorer or My Computer. Your camera should show up as if it were a data drive with an icon of a camera. Double click that icon and you can view photos at will. Right click any photo to save, or use pull down menus above to save multiple photos at once to other drives.
