Question about Samsung SCL901 Hi8mm Camcorder

1 Answer

Samsung SCL700 I have a Samsung 8mm camcorder that has been in storage for a while. It worked fine when I last used it, but now it won't power up. It has a new lithium battery in it, and themain battery is charged. I had the same problem the last time I stored it for a while, but I can't remember how I fixed it last time. All I remember was it was very simple! Any advis would be greatly appreciated.

When I connect My Samsung VP-D77i Camcorder to my Laptop I always get a message saying "cant open camera device". My Laptop does not have a fire wire port but only with USB ports. It has Windows 7 Pre

First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

Do you need a working battery to run camcorder off ac power adapter? I havent used camera in 2 years and just bought replaceable power adapter and wont charge battery or work off outlet at was...

You do not need a battery to run the camcorder off ac power supply. It is one or the other. The only time that both will be used is when you are charging the battery on the camcorder with the power off.

Hope this helps.

Software upgrades

Um... this is a DVD camcorder, right. What are you expected a camcorder driver to do for you? Just put the DVD into the computer.

If you're after USB drivers for the still mode, those should only be necessary on older OSs.... Windows XP and Vista had built-in drivers for USB storage-class devices.

It's quite possible some of the applications (basic video editor, I don't know what else they might ship with the camcorder) don't work under Vista. Samsung doesn't have any software updates posted for this camcorder, and I wouldn't hold my breath... CE companies aren't likely to support products in the way you might be used to from computer companies. Given that you have Vista, you can probably import and edit video using Windows Movie Maker.
