  • Anonymous Nov 15, 2007

    Man this has been ticking me off for months now. Mine used to import with sound just fine, but then I switched to vista and now windows movie maker doesn't have sound when I import. GRRRR BARK!! When I look in help it shows that audio files do not support .avi in this version. I don't know why and I can can't figure out how to make my camera record in another format or how to get WMP or WMM to accept audio .avi files.

    I definitely have the same problem, when sharing photos / video's from the same memory card with someone who had Windows XP then sound played fine.

    There's no sound on the playback function on the device either though - but I know I've recorded some!!

    Just received a new Samsung s730 digital camera for Christmas. I have a GB of video, with sound. My Windows VISTA computer (Dell) plays the AVI files with no sound. Anyone figure this out yet?

I contacted Samsung today regarding the same problem. Their recommended solution was to download VLC Media Player for Windows from which I did.

My default security settings on Vista did not at all like this site. I had to navigate through about 10 different warning messages. However, it did install easily, seems safe thus far and it does playback the videos with sound.

No sound

How do I play -back my video on my samsung S73 dig. cam?

When playing back photos, the photos and videos are stored in the order taken so when previewing using the forward and back controls (right and left on the joypad) when you come across a video press the play/ pause control (down on the joypad) to play the video.

An extra tip is to press the play/ pause control to pause the video, then follow the on-screen instructions (I don't remember which button you press) to take a screen capture of the frame you are viewing and it will save it as a separate photo!

No playback on camera

Whenever you want to playback your videos, you should be in recording mode.

Press the play mode button and select the video that you want to play and then press the play/ pause button on the bottom part of the menu/ ok button.
