Question about Samsung Digimax L730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Transfer data I can't seem to find the connection to plug this camera into my computer. It's some sort of connector, which has a USB male plug on the other end, to transfer photos and charge the camera. Do you know where this plugs into the camera? Any guidance would be much appreciated! Daunted in Cincinnati

It plugs into the bottom of the camera. See the illustration on page 10 of this manual.
You might want to consider 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.

SOURCE: charging

I do not know this particular camera but it is not usual to take a battery charge from the computer. Charger plug in the the household supply. Is this one different? There is usually a more comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk- have you checked that out. Finally get on to customer support, if you feel you are getting nowhere. I would like to know more about the battery charger.

SOURCE: File Error?? Please help

I found a solution to the problem.
1. Upload all the pictures to the computer and save them.
2. Press the Menu button. (On my computer, it says "Menu/ok.)
3. Scroll to "Setup 2" button.
4. Go to Format, and press "yes."
5. Go to reset and press "yes."

All your pictures will be cleared and there won't be any file error, and as for the deleted pictures, you will have already saved them on your computer.

I hope this helps.

And by the way, I wouldn't buy a new disk, because the same problem is bound to occur again sometime, and you'd have to buy a new disk everytime.

I have the same problem with my WB500. From the start I haven't been able to charge it via the computer or down load photos. I solved the problem by buying a card reader and a separate battery charger. I tried to get the problem resolved by Samsung, but with no luck, so solved it my way instead

In most of this kind of devices, the USB data transfer cable also charges the battery of the portable device when connected to a computer or a laptop. They can be also charged with a wall adapter with compatible USB connector on it.

My nikon coolpix S220 wont charge. I had to buy another USB connector because my son lost his and it does not seem to recognize the camera at all and will not charge


The camera does not contain any charging circuitry and will not charge the battery when connected via the USB cable. In fact connecting via USB actually drains the battery faster because the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The camera comes with a separate MH-63 charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. Once the battery is charged, you can put it into the camera and try connecting it to the computer.

Better yet, don't connect it to the computer.

Where do I connect my camera cabel to my computer?


Some cameras have a multi-use cable which can be used for both data transfer or copy, and video output. Most cameras I have worked with usually have two cables, one for video playback and the other for data transfer or copy to a computer or other device. Most all cameras today use the convince of the standard computer USB access.
Most cameras have a cover made of either rubber or plastic which can be folded back to reveal connectors for mini-USB and video outlets. The appropriate cables must be used to connect to video or a computer or other device.
It is advisable to read your user manual for information on usage of the video and the data transfer cables and the software, if that is what you need.
I also suggest to skip all that and use a card reader, no more hassle. A card reader will give you more freedom without having to install software to see your photos or other files.

In a pinch you could cut apart 2 other USB cables and splice the two male A ends together. There are 4 wires and a ground sheathing. The wires in USB cables are almost always the same colors so just match them up and you are ready to go.

General USB Troubleshooting


While USB connections are significantly faster and easier to set up than older serial or SCSI connections they are not foolproof. Here are some tips: Be sure to connect the cable properly One side of the cable is "keyed" so it will only fit properly one way. Do not force it in if it does not smoothly connect. Notice how the USB plug is "keyed" and will only fit properly in one direction. The USB connector on the back of the computer. Connect directly to a USB port on the computer. While USB hubs allow many devices to connect to a computer they are not always reliable for high-speed connections like digital cameras. Connect to a port on the back of the computer. Many computers have extra USB ports on the front or on the keyboard. These are generally built-in hubs which may cause problems as described above. Connect to an AC adapter or use a freshly charged battery To prevent problems during transfer be sure that the camera has enough power to complete image transfers. Remove other devices To troubleshoot problems, remove any other USB devices and connect just the Nikon product for testing.
