Question about Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Video will not transfer to my computer

Just as the title says. The Pictures are fine, but the videos are apparently a no-go. "Device is not ready" error.

I am using a Sandisk 1gb SD card to store the videos. I have an HP a1600n, and I need help. Badly.

I have tried HP Photo Transfer or whatever, and Windows Camera and Fax wizard. I have also tried copying the files manually to no avail. Please help!

Computer sees camera as storeage device rather than as imaging device. Running Windows XP Home Edition. Camera is Nikon Coolpix 5200. Have downloaded latest Nikon software. Have talked with Nikon...

According to Nikon specifications this camera uses USB only to transfer pictures and videos, not for video streaming or taking pictures (image device), but you could test if it changes opearting mode by setting USB option to PTP in the setup menu (by default is set as Mass storage).
