Question about Samsung S850 Digital 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.

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....
