Question about Samsung i85 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Ok my second time asking this here are the details: Samsung i85 digital camera demo for pmp works but will not play my media that i put into the pmp folder. files are not corrupt because they play on the computer files are correct format for this device file setup is correct. SD card is good All looks in working order untill want to view my files with the pmp player it says "no file" everything else works fine. I am thinking it may be some kind of driver that is not installed in the camera to make these media files work. was not new when i bought it. please help!! i am pretty sure it is just a driver or software issue bit dont know how to fix it.

    Sorry i am new i really didnt mean to do that. I figured it out though. samsung provides thier own converter so that you can use the pmp feature. It converts them them to SDC files samsung does support the other files but only for playback in your machine or the while you are playing them from a diffreent location such as the one you view your pictures on. but to access the pmp feauture and use it to watch a movie or video with certain options that come with the pmp feature you need to first convert them to SDC files with a converter that is included with the camera.

If you are certain the the file is working on your computer, then save all of them in computer. Then reformat the SD card from the camera. after that, try to take some pictures then to record video from the camera to see it can play back.
If it can play back then there is a problem with your SD card.
If it can play back, reload the file that you saved in computer. The SD card now should let you camera play the media from it. Good luck

On the second time I answering you:

This camera has not pmp file format among the list of supported files.

The camera is called PMP (portable media player) because it will play MP3, but I am not sure that it will support PMP files.

the camera supports JPEG - AVI MPEG - MP3 WAV

Last time you refused my solution giving bad rating. This will cut the expert out, so that I had not been able to answer.

The answer is above. Please let me know if I am wrong or if you have further questions (and please wait for answer) before just refusing any answer. That make things quite difficult for us.

Why does my Samsung i85 digital Camera does turn not on even with a new charged battery

Sure the battery is charged? Can you operate the camera with just the adapter? If so, does the camera work then. If so the new battery is defective.

Undelet my samsung i85 camera

Hello. If you have the files on your computer you should be able to connect the camera and open my computer if using windows. The camera should show up as a removeable drive such E: or another letter. If it does you can copy,move, or send files from thier location to the drive letter of your camera. You should choose to copy or send them because moving them will remove them from your computer.

My Samsung i85 wot play files in the PMP folder

Hi Consuelo,

If you cannot access the files stored in memory card, try transferring files onto a computer , and then opening them.

If that does not work, test camera with a different memory card, the card may be faulty.

Id the card is defective, you may not be able ot open the pictures, and some file may be lost.
In that case, all you can do is trying one of the software available below:

Digital Photo Recovery software for Digital Picture Recovery
