Samsung VP-D305i How do i get files from camera to PC??!?!?!?

I am just about to give up on this...i've been trying for ages to work out a way to get files from my camera to my pc and nothing works. the PC won't let me install the camera thru the USB cable, and i keep getting the massage that the "software has not passed windows logo testing for XP" and it restarts my computer. i am nearing wits end... any help would be awesome.

    I have a very similar issue. I cannot transfer any videos from my camcorder to my laptop which runs on Vista. I have down loaded all drivers and software and it still does not work. I have also tried different connections such as connecting with the s cord instead of usb cable, and still nothing. Can anyone help??

Samsungs software (DVC Media) is not compatible with vista and their latest version is not available to most countries.

I use Vista and how I download is as follows:
1) Install DVC driver from disk (Ignore request to install media player). It can say error but I found it still worked.
2) Plug in a firewire (IEEE) cable to your camera and PC then use a authoring package to capture footage. I use adobe premier elements but can use a number of others.

When I connect My Samsung VP-D77i Camcorder to my Laptop I always get a message saying "cant open camera device". My Laptop does not have a fire wire port but only with USB ports. It has Windows 7 Pre


First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

make sure your camera is set to an advanced mode, not an easy mode, and open up the menu. Search the wrench or settings options, or memory card if it has that, and look for the word format. It'll be in there somewhere.
