Question about Samsung Digimax V800 Digital Camera
Hi there.. weve had a lot of problems with the V800.. when we got it 2yrs ago we could never get it to download pics to the pc (windows xp).. we even accidentally deleted pics from the camara in doing so.. and so gave up!!..
however,we have recently got a new pc (vista) and thought we would try to install the set-up disc again.. but now find we have lost the install disc for our samsung digimax V800 camara..
can we get a replacement/download for this..??..and is it compatable with vista..??
thankyou very much for your time

You don´t need any drivers, if you plug it straight into the usb the computer will see it as a portable storage drive. open myComputer and you´ll see a new drive has appeared, (named E:/ for example...), open it up, find the folder with your photos on and hey presto! You can select and drag them somewhere else on your system to copy them just like with any other drive.
The exception to this is the video codecs, you won´t be able to view the video unless your computer / video player has the right video codecs installed... but you´ll still be able to copy these files whenever you want.
I honestly would never use the proprietory software for cameras, mp3 players etc, theres no need for it and it just gets in the way. I had no problem installing the software for this camera when i first got it, but I quickly realised it was of no use to me. Since then I have plugged the camera into dozens of different computers, and never needed to use the supplied software to do that. Although, I didnt have any problems with it, it really doesn´t surprise me that people get confused and frustrated by these kind of software packages. With a lot of the less well known companies, the sotware that comes with with the product is just a mess.
An example of this, i recently got given a Zen Mosaic mp3 player. When I plugged it into the computer, I couldn´t open anything up, so I thought there must be some drivers missing. I went through the install process over and over again, and couldn´t get anything to work. They told me in the shop that it was necessary to use the proprietary software for it as it didn´t have 'drag-and-drop' capability, so I asked for my money back straight away.
