Can you charge a samsung l830 digimax camera with a usb cable or do you have to have a charger?

If the USB port puts out enough current then yes, you may charge the L830 with a USB cable. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current, especially if you go through a hub.

I'm having trouble downloading photos to my computer with the software that came with my camera. What can I do? Someone deleted my digimax master off of my computer,and i can't upload pictures now for...

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera
will be recognized automatically as a removable disk when your computer has the following Operating Systems.

For transferring pictures with OS (Windows 98/XP/Vista/2000/MAC 9.2-10.3 ):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied
in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.

I bought a samsung digimax 301 from a friend

no you wont be able to do that without software, you should have got a cdrom with the camera along with the usb lead. Install the software and follow the instructions, you will then be able to transfer pictures to your pc.
