Windows doesn's recognize camera, device manager says no driver

I installed the driver for my new samsung L100 digital camera on my daughter's computer and was able to connect via USB just fine. On my computer the driver installation completed but windows xp professional doesn't recognize the device. In device manager the device is also not recognized and properties states no driver installed. In check-it diagnostics it states the device failed renumeration. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver several times. The card reader in the same USB port connects fine.

    I have the exact same problem. The Samsung people had me install a Windows service pack and updates which didn't change anything. Another Samsung person said go to "Removable Disk" under My Computer, DCIM folder, 100SSCAM and save to a folder. Can't - when I go to My Computer, Removable Disk, it says insert something into the G drive. I don't know what to do. The camera is attached when I do this which is what they told me to do.

Hi -

Have you tried another USB port? Sometimes, they can act goofy.
Also be sure your anti-virus isn't blocking any part of the installation.

Here is a link to the Samsung troubleshooting guide for your camera.
You can probably download the most recent driver from that website as well.
Perhaps they have a better or newer version than what came prepackaged
with the camera (just because a camera is a new purchase does not mean
the software it came with is the most updated).

I run WinXP home edition, so I am not familiar if there are any differences in the professional version regarding software installation....

Good luck!

How to upload my pictures to the computer? how to install device?


Click HERE and find the L100 model. A new window will open, pick the preferred language and download the user manual.

You can either remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the computer, or use the USB/power cable to connect it to the computer and transfer the pictures that way.

Instead of reading a long drawn out explanation that may be more confusing, look at the manual and the pictures for a more efficient answer. If you need any of the drivers for the camera, they can be downloaded from the same page.

I hope this helps and good luck!

You didn't say what operating system you are using in your PC. If you have Windows XP or later follow these instructions. Since you apparently have the driver and software on a CD, unplug the camera from your PC, remove the camera software from the PC, remove the driver using the Device manager, restart the PC, then plug your camera into the USB port. Allow the operating system to find the correct driver when it notifies you of finding a "New Device". Normally that will solve the problem. If it does not, then reload the software.

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

Connection between camera and computer


What operating system are you using? Is you camera connected via USB? Have you tried using another USB port? Did you make sure to install the software before plugging in your camera?

Generally if you are running Windows 98, you will need to reboot after installing the software to even have a chance of the camera being recognized correctly.

If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the camera should be recognized and a driver installed or searched for from the CD software you installed before plugging in the camera.

Sometimes if you plug in the camera first without installing the software, the PC finds a new device with no driver. You can see this by going to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and you should see and exclamation on a device in the list. You need to remove this item and reboot your PC.

Now install the software first and when the install is done, then plug in your camera. Generally this works out pretty well.
