When I am connecting my Samaung Digital model S860 with PC having Windows Xp (Profectional) via USB cable, nothing is happening at PC screen. Also I don't have driver CD with my camera. Please sen

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.

Simple. Get a card reader. Use it to download your pics to a folder you create on the desktop. Once there, you can send the pics to any program you desire.10_31_2011_4_37_56_am.jpg

I have a nikon coolpix S 3000 which i have beeb able to download the pictures to my computer. Tried it this morning but when i plug the usb cable into the camera the screen goes black and nothing happens....

I think it is one of these: 1. the cable is kaput or 2. the socket where the cable goes into the camera is damaged (most probable) or 3. the socket where the cable goes into the computer is damaged (easy to check)
You could try cleaning all connections with a cotton earbud.
I've had this problem before - I damaged the camera socket - I've learnt to be more gentle! To get around it I bought a card reader. This is a better option anyway, as the delicate electronics of your camera are not subject to powers surges that may occur while it's connected to your computer.
Hope this helps! H

I can't upload pictures from my Sony DSC-S650.

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

Screen goes black when a/v cord connected

I had a bad cable on mine. Once you plug the cord in the camera controls will appear on the screen. If you get a hold of Sony they can get you a new one.

You might be able to find a new one at a computer store depending on what connection goes to the back of you camera to get it to work (like a mini jack).

When I plug in AV cable for playback on TV camera screen goes black

did you fully charge the battery before use when you bought the camera? and is it charged now? most cameras can take photos but not be able to hook up to download. because photos take less energy it may be that it has just enough energy to take a picture, but not quite enough to do anything else. i don't think your stupid, its just that some people don't think of the little things as be possible. also could check to see if there is any obstructions. (dirt, little pieces of plastic, etc.) on the main routing items. (memory card, plug-both ends, inside the camera housing itself). hope i could help GOOD LUCK!
