Consider NOT using the USB connection.

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.

Cant download photo too my laptop


Latinlord_17,
Are you sure the camera is on and charged while it is connected to the computer?
If not, you may need to charge the device via a power adapter to ensure a better experience.
If the camera is charged, I will provide two sets of instruction, one for Mac OS X and the other for Windows.
Windows:
  1. Take the USB cable that came with your camera and plug it into the correct ports on both the camera and computer.
  2. Windows should detect the camera and launch "Windows Photo and Fax Viewer" wizard, and ask you what the default action should be when you connect the camera.
  3. Upon clicking NEXT, you should then see your photos loading up on the screen, scroll down to the button that says Import All
  4. When the download is complete, your pictures should be inside the My Pictures folder in Documents
Mac OS X:
  1. Take the USB cable that came with your camera and plug it into the correct ports on both the camera and computer.
  2. OS X should detect the camera, and prompt to launch the iPhoto application
  3. Inside iPhoto, you should then be able to see a camera icon with your camera's name on the left-hand bar. Click on this icon.
  4. Upon seeing your photos, on the right hand portion of the screen, you should see a button that says Import Pictures.
  5. After the download is complete, the pictures are stored inside iPhoto and can be viewed in the Events portion of the application.
Hope this helps.

Change the USB port. If you are connecting it to front USB of your computer, try connecting it to USB port at back of computer..

The cable might be fauty.

I wanted to know how to download the video to my computer


First you're going to need to locate the USB cable that comes with your camera and plug it into your computer via USB-port. Most cameras use a mini-usb cable, and it should look like the picture renzyfeist_1.jpg It should look something like that or similar to that cable and can plug into your camera. I'm not quite sure what model or brand your digital camera is, but look around for a flap or plug-in hole that is in your camera. That should be where you plug in the cable.
After that, take the cable and plug it into your USB-port on your computer, it's a rectangular shaped port that should match up with the other end of the cable.
When you've connected your camera to your computer, it should automatically detect the camera and prompt you to open the camera to view files. If not, follow these steps.
  1. Open start menu
  2. Computer
  3. Look for your device, should be labeled "YOUR DEVICE NAME - MODEL"
  4. Double click on your device
  5. There should be one or two folders once you've clicked it, click on the one that starts with DCM.
  6. Find your video and photos inside that folder and drag it onto your desktop
Once that's done, you should have the video that you captures on your camera onto your computer for viewing.
Good luck!

How do i transfer photos from my samsung L100 camera on my laptop???


If you have a USB cable, connect to your camera and then connect it to the computer's USB port. the computer should see the camera as a storage device. You can then open the folders on the camera and copy the photos to a folder in your computer.
Some cameras need a program installed on the computer so you can download the photos.
The other way of downloading photos - remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into an USB memory card reader and then connect this to the USB port on the computer. The computer will see this as an external storage device, then open the folders on the memory card and copy the photos to a folder in the computer.

Downloading images


Possibly a short in the camera, cable, or the port itself. Recommend trying another port. If that doesn't help, then please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:
