Question about Samsung SC-D6040 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Need a Windows Vista driver for Samsung SCD6040 Camcorder

I have been looking for an updated driver for the Samsung SCD6040 digital camcorder. The only driver available from the Samsung site dates to pre-Vista (2004). Do you know whether there is a vista-capable driver available, and if so, where it can be found to download? I have had no luck in locating one so far. Thank you.

    That is what I was afraid of. Situations like this is why Windows Vista has had such a problem being accepted. The Camcorder was purchased in 2004. Vista was released in 2007. In my opinion, this isn't a big enough spread in years not to develop a driver for this device.



    Well, enough of my soap box. I don't blame Microsoft for that. Samsung, I would think, made that decision to make their product obsolete before its time. My decision...I probably won't replace the camera with a Samsung product. Oh well. Thank you for your reply. I do appreciate it.

    Video transfer


    If you're using a Windows Vista Operating System it'snot possible to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB connection. The videos from the tape camcorders cannot be transferred to Windows Vista Operating System as there is no USB Streaming ooption available on the Windows Vista Operating System. The Camcorder uses the USB Streaming function to transfer the videos to the Computer. You may wish to purchase a i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect the Camcorder to the Computer in order to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer.
    or
    There is an update for driver on the Sony website to transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Computer using the USB cable.
    http://support.sony-europe.com/dime/downloads/downloads.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=DCR-HC42E&f=usbdrven_vista

    You may also try installing the driver update for the Camcorder. The i.LINK cable gives a better video transfer qulaity than the USB transfer. The i.LINK cable used to connect the Camcorder to the computer depends on the number of pins available on the i.LINK/FIREWIRE port on the Computer. The i.LINK port on the Computer is a D shaped port which is labelled as i, DV, IEEE1394 and Firewire.

    Windows Vista will not let Windows Movie Maker import/edit videos


    I would look for a more recent driver on the Samsung support website specifically for  Vista; it apparently does not have the right (or any) driver to permit it to work with your DVD camcorder. I don't think any of your hardware, computer or camcorder is dysfunctional, Windows just has to know how to communicate with it.
    What you might try first is to have the camcorder connected (USB I assume) and reboot your PC. If Win can see it at all, you should get a screen message that it has found new hardware.  If it has some basic driver on hand, the message might state 'installing software for your device.'

    I'm having the same problem. I don't have the disks with the camcorder and Vista is not recognizing nor seeing the camcorder. I'm going to try to download Zoombrowser and see if that makes it work.

    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.
