My pc wich has windows 7 can't detect my samsung digital camera a503 i need a fix because i have tried everything

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.

I need help with my samsung digimax a503 i have brand new alkiline batteries in...

Many digital cameras (eg Samsung D53, Nikon 2100) have extremely poor battery life with alkaline batteries (under 20 shots!). Sometimes they won't even take a single picture.

Try using rechargeable batteries or "oxyride" disposable batteries. They perform infinately better.

File format samsung digimax A 503 cant be read

see the following steps:
If the camera won't connect with your computer, make sure you have the latest version of the needed software drivers (in your digital camera package or online from the manufacturer). Check your computer for conflicts (two devices trying to use the same port); you may need technical assistance for this one. In some cases you can get things working again by connecting the digital camera, then turning off the computer and turning it back on.

However READ your owner manual, section troubleshooting for to try resolve problem too.
God bless you

I get OXC000005 when i try to open the programme. the camera is fine but won't connect to the pc. windows vista

Hi, Usually when you connect your camera to the PC via the USB, the camera shows up as a drive in My Computer. From there you can open the device(drive) and browse through the files, copy or delete them. Connecting the Camera via the USB and copying the files this way will be slower, but you can still get the work done. If you want fast transfers,4-5 time faster, a card reader would be a good option.

Samsung s630

First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?

Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different USB PORTS on both, please.

Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.

Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the camera.

Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!

Hope that helps.
