Turn the camera off if it's not already off. Insert the memory card. Turn the camera on. Press the FUNC/SET button. Use the up/down keys on the circular multiselector to select Set-up (the wrench and hammer symbol). Use the left/right keys to select "Format." Press the FUNC/SET button. Use the arrow keys to select "OK." Press the FUNC/SET button.

All of this is on page 25 of the "Advanced Camera User Guide."

Cell phone has insufficient storage to download app 6ya. Need answer for R472 Zenith radio. Can someone help?


If your phone has provision for an SD card, then, you just might be in luck.

Step 1:
Insert an SD card and confirm that your phone can truly see it and in turn access it.

Step 2:
Navigate to Settings, then click on Apps/Applications
Once this opens up, scroll to identify app you downloaded and installed on your phone; especially the ones with high ~Mb sizes.

Step 3:
Select or click on one of these apps. A page opens where you'd notice app info
**Force stop
**Uninstall
**Clear app data
**Move to storage/Move to SD card

Step 4:
Click on "Move to SD card/Move to Storage"

Do this for every app you installed and get them transferred to the SD card.

This will free up internal memory space so you can install new apps on your phone.

Mu computer is windows 7 professional


Marie, If your computer is not equipped with a SD/Micro SD card Reader you will have to purchase one to simplify looking at it and copying it on computer. You can also use appropriate cable possibly to hook your camera up to computer.
Step 1/ Insert a USB card reader into an available USB port on your PC.
Step 2/ Insert the micro SD card into the card reader. Some card readers will only accept standard SD cards. If that's the case, insert your micro SD card into an SD card adapter and insert the adapter into the card reader.
Step 3/ Click "Open Folder to View Files" in the Auto Play window to launch Windows Explorer in the appropriate drive letter. Alternatively, press "Windows-E" and click the card reader's drive letter.
Step 4/ Drag and drop files to or from the micro SD card's drive letter to copy files. Alternatively, right-click and drag files and then select "Move Here" to move the files without keeping the files in the original location.
Step 5/ Select a file, press "Delete" and select "Yes" to delete files from the micro SD Card.
Step 6/ Right-click the micro SD card's drive letter and select "Eject." Once ejected, you may safely remove the card.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How can i format write protected micro sd card 32gb....


Slide the write protect tab forward to remove the write protection. You cannot format it while it is write protected. Formatting will erase all data on the card. Install the card into a Windows or MAC and wait for the device to detect and mount the card. Use the appropriate procedure for the machine to format the card. See this procedure for additional step-by-step operations after the write protect tab has been moved.

Samsaung camcorder playback on apple mac


Hi Dianne
-First off make sure what 'formatt' the Samsaung camcorder you are using was recording in. The most common 'formatt' currently being used by camcorders is AVCHD.
-You then need to confirm that your Mac has a version of iMovie that is compatible new enough to recognize this formatt (if your computer was purchased in the last 3 years it should be)..., if not you will probably need to install a newer version of this software.
-If your Samsaung video files were recorded onto SD cards vs the cameras internal memory..., it is easiest to remove the card and then download to the computer..., via a card reader or via the computers 'built in' SD card reader.
-The important thing is to create a folder on your desktop and drag the files you want to download to this file..., do not try to import directly to iMovie (if you try to import directly to iMovie..., this is where problems often occur).
-Follow these steps and you should have no issues.

My pictures on my microsd card were corrupted


Its most likely your Micro SD card thats faulty. If its a Sandisk of Kingston then theres a 12 Month warranty on them but if its one of those cheap no name ones they are a complete joke and will continue to corrupt everything put on them. Invest in a good brand one.

  • Make sure to update the firmware in the order shown below.
  • The camera might not boot up properly if its power is turned off during the firmware-updating procedure.

Requirements:
  • SD memory card (henceforth referred to as "card") with capacity over 8 MB.

  • Additionally, you need one of the items listed below:
    (i) A SD memory card reader (henceforth referred to as "card reader")

    *CAUTION:
    Please be sure to download the file onto a hard drive and not onto a removable location such as a card reader.
    The firmware file should be saved in a location where you can easily find it again later (e.g. save it on desktop of your computer).


Step I.3: Copy the file "s313n081.bin" to the formatted card (from step I.1):

The method of operation differs depending on whether you use a card reader (i) or a dedicated USB cable (ii).
(i) When you copy the downloaded files with a card reader: (1) Put the formatted card from step I.1 in the card reader. (2) Copy the "s313n081.bin" file created on your hard disk in step I.2 to the root directory of the card.

When you connect to your PC, please make sure the camera's USB interface is set to "Card Reader".
