Question about Samsung S850 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Windows doesn't recognize camera

I have a samsung s850, but it was given to me from a friend, so i don't have any of the software that came with it originally. I went to www.samsungcamera.com and downloaded the driver, but it doesn't seem to be working. No matter what i do, the computer does not recognize the camera. It appears as if nothing's even in the USB port. Help?

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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.

SOURCE: windows doesn's recognize camera, device manager says no driver

Hi -

Have you tried another USB port? Sometimes, they can act goofy.
Also be sure your anti-virus isn't blocking any part of the installation.

Here is a link to the Samsung troubleshooting guide for your camera.
You can probably download the most recent driver from that website as well.
Perhaps they have a better or newer version than what came prepackaged
with the camera (just because a camera is a new purchase does not mean
the software it came with is the most updated).

I run WinXP home edition, so I am not familiar if there are any differences in the professional version regarding software installation....

Good luck!

Remove date/stamp from pictures already taken


Once the stamp is on the picture it's just like any other element of the picture. You can try to remove it using a photo editing program, the same way you might remove a telephone pole growing out of someone's head, for example. There is no magic feature that will automatically recognize the pixels making up the stamp and recover what was there originally when the picture was taken.

Samsung S850 USB Control mode


My Samsung S85 is plug and play. There was not special software.
I am running a 2006 iMac with that has Preview, and later after OS upgrade iPhoto already on it. One came up when the camera was connected.
To connect - turn camera power off. Connect cable. Turn on camera. Camera displays a selection of what to connect to. A drive Icon shows up on my computer screen.

SAMSUNG 350SE PROBLEMS


THERE ARE A COUPLE OF WAYS TO GO ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. THERE ARE SOME PHOTO PROGRAMS THAT ARE PRETTY GOOD AT RECOGNIZING CAMERAS TO DOWNLOAD YOUR PICTURES. THEY ARE WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY AND GOOGLES PICASA YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER CABLE TO CONNECT YOUR CAMERA TO A USB PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER? THAT'S A MUST. OK, ABOUT THE SOFTWARE. TRY GOING ONLINE TO THE SAMSUNG SITE AND ENTER 350SE AND SEE IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE SOFTWARE YOU NEED ONLINE THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD. MOST CAMERA MAKERS HAVE THERE SOFTWARE ONLINE. WINDOWS XP AND VISTA HAVE QUITE A LOT OF CAMERA SOFTWARE PRE INSTALLED. YOU MIGHT TRY SHUTTING DOWN YOUR COMPUTER, THEN CONNECTING YOUR CAMERA AND THEN BOOTING YOUR COMPUTER AGAIN AND SEE IF YOUR COMPUTER RECOGNIZES YOUR CAMERA. IT'S A CHANCE WORTH THE TIME. HOPE THIS HAS GIVEN YOU SOME IDEAS. NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
