    Thank you for your help. I am pretty sure you are correct on needing the software to get the camera to upload. I have used the ports with sucess previously, and I have never had a problem uploading pics with any other cameras. I will try the memory card suggestion, that seems the easiest route.

    Okay, downloaded the driver...nothing. It does not even recognize the camera at all still. I am buying a memory card and seeing if it works. If not my next solution will be to throw it against a wall.

First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?

Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different USB PORTS on both, please.

Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.

Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the camera.

Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!

Hope that helps.

Cant detec my camera s630 camera samsung on my pc it have a driver or non


If I understood this correctly then my answer is:

Your PC won't detect ANY external device that does not supply some kind of driver that allows the computer to recognize it. A CD should have been included with your camera. If it was, insert it into your disc drive on your computer and begin the installation process as well as install your drivers.

No CD? Contact support for a way to get those drivers.

Can I install/point to Dig Camera w/o installation disk?


You don't need to install anything.


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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Need instructions to transferr pictures from camera to computor for S630 Samsung Digital


Download Picasa from google, its free and really simple, you plug in the camera, it recognizes the camera and asks you if you want to transfer the pics to the PC, even if you want to erase the card afterwords. It has editing features and folder management. I use this exclusively over all the OEM programs I have 99% of the time.

Hi there,

If you're a MAC user, you could still download pictures from your camera to PC.

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera will be recognized automatically as a removable disk.

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.

For transferring pictures with OS (MAC):
- 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

Make sure to check your MAC System for the following:
- Power Mac G3 or later
- Mac OS 9.2~10.3
- Minimum 64MB RAM
- 110MB of available hard-disk space
