Question about Samsung ST66 Digital Camera
Page 18 of the manual says: Only use cable and AC power adapter, delivered with your camera to charge the battery. If you use another adapter, or cable the camera battery could not charge or not work properly.
The manual, does not indicate you should be able, or you could charge the battery, when you connect it to a computer. And although on the outside a cable can look the same, it would be better you use the original cable, that came with the camera. Make sure you switch off the camera before charging and check if all contacts in the camera and on the cable are clean and not bent.

I do not know this particular camera but it is not usual to take a battery charge from the computer. Charger plug in the the household supply. Is this one different? There is usually a more comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk- have you checked that out. Finally get on to customer support, if you feel you are getting nowhere. I would like to know more about the battery charger.

If you've recently changed the batteries, make sure that you have the right kind for your camera and that they're installed properly. That said, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries
or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the
batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your
batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
