Question about Samsung L100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

File errors, distorted photos.. I hate the Samsung L100!!

I am completely fed up with this damn camera... I just don't know what to do.
those damn file error message why do they keep coming up for no reason? even photos that seemed fine for a period can later have file error messages it makes no sense.
When trying to transfer to the comp via usb there are endless errors realting to incorrect parameters with certain files etc..When it gets to an error the whole transer cuts out... If it finally does decide to work it doesn't copy all the photos and random ones are left behind.
Some photos that have 'file error' messages on the camera are fine on the computer and some that seem fine on the camera are stuffed when trying to view them on the computer.
A lot of the photos are distorted with strips out of line and distorted colours once they have been transferred to the computer..

It makes no sense what can I do?
Do you think it is more likely to be a SD card problem or a Camera issue or both? I a using a 4gb scandisk card.. Does it matter which card you use? Please Help!

Regarding the use, you have to check if you are using the right memory card for your camera.

you can only use 2GB sd card or 4gb sdhc card.

try this and if you still have an error message. you better send the camera for service.

Driver software samsung L100

You don't need a driver.

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.

My camera samsung lenz keep saing CARD LOCKED when I turn it on

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Samsung l100 digital camera. Pressed menu, then "format" in settings. Why did all my photos disappear??

Format completely erases the card and optimizes it to take more pictures. Why did you press it?

Format button deleted my memory card???

Format will wipe clean your memory-card like new - Always.
so normally avoid that button.

if you lost some photos using the format then there maybe some chance to get them back.

take out the card and put it in external card reader.

Now get hold of some file recovery software like 'GetDataBack for FAT32' (buy/borrow/steal :) ) install it on your computer, GetDataBack should be able to pull back the data.

Let me know if any more clarifications needed.

take out the memory card look for a lock tab at the side of it, push it up and insert the memory card back. that should do it

card lock is a feature of the memory card so that you won't accidentally erase the files that are saved in it

hope this helps

Image problems - samsung L100

You can try a different memory card, but I don't think the problem is memory card, if pictures look scrambled, and colors and brightness are not uniform, that is either a problem with CCD sensor (optic sensor that takes the picture), or logic board.
In either case, this is not an easy repair.

Reset the camera to default settings from camera menu, and try a different memory card, but the camera will probably need to be sent in for repairs.

My samsung l100 memory is full after 4 photo ? i have no memory card

you have your "picture size" set too large. In the pic settings you can change it to take more or less pictures, depending on the quality you want. A better photo will take more memory. If you don't want to print your photos, put your setting on smaller size, and you will be able too shoot all day.
