After I import pictures from my Samsung S630 camera on the computer how do I get them off the memory card

You may delete them one by one on the Camera: Go to "view" and delete
Or You may delete them all by browsing to the menu > Format memory card.

How do I unlock protected pictures?

You have to unprotect it first. It's a bit confusing because the menu item probably only says "Protect..." but it also takes care of unprotecting too. Go into the menu for "Protect..." and navigate to the protected one. Whatever button you press to switch the protected status (it's the SET button on my Canon) you can use it to turn the protection off as well. When you exit the protection mode, you can delete it.

Update! I just tried this on a Samsung S630 - hopefully the process will be similar for you (the camera certainly looks the same). You have to be in playback mode. Press the menu button, and go to Playback. Move to 'Protect' and select that mode. You can navigate through the pictures, and on mine, T(elephoto) locks it, and W(ide) unlocks it. In any case, the on-screen instructions should tell you what key it is.

If this doesn't work for you, don't mark it unhelpful (yet) but say so, and I'll find a user manual for your exact model.

I have the samsung s630 and i have taken some pictures on it before i got a memory card. i want to save them to my memory card, but when i insert the memory card those photos wont show up. how do i get...

If you remove the card from the camera and connect the camera to your computer with the USB lead, you should see the camera's internal memory as a disk drive on the computer. If there is a memory card inserted, you will see that memory instead.

Unlocking individual pictures is done with the same function that locked them. It is probably on a menu available when you are viewing the pictures on the camera.

Retrieving deleted picture on samsung s630 camera

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Switched to Picassa instead of Wizard and for some reason it downloaded photos and videos. So I obviously had the wrong program to download from the camera.

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.
