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 would like to download pics from a digital camera to my computer but the computer is old. I see no port for digital card


Do you have the CD that came with your digital camera?

IF so, put it in your optical drive, and install the software.
This CD contains the drivers for your camera.
Drivers allow your computer to 'communicate' with you camera.

Now obtain the correct USB connector that plugs into your camera. Should be a male Micro, style of USB male plug,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg

The plug all the way to the left in the photo.

They sell USB cables that have this style of male USB plug on one end, and the usual USB A style on the other end of the cable.

Male. The male USB A style, is shown all the way to the right in the photo.

Looking at the usual style of USB plug, compare it's size to the Micro USB plug.

Yes, the female version of that plug is on your phone.

There is also a kit made by Philips, that has 5 different adapter ends of the USB style, in the kit.

The adapter ends just plug onto a male USB A style end.
The kit comes with a Male A USB to Male A USB cable.
It's rolled up on a tiny reel that is about 1 inch wide, and is retractable.
You just grab the ends of the cable, and pull out the length of cable you need.

This gives you an idea of what I'm referring to,

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Emerge-Tech-Retractable-USB-2.0-A-Male-to-A-Female-Cable/12575359

With the software from your camera installed on your computer, and the USB cable plugged from your camera to your computer, you are able to download.

Some camera's have it so you turn the camera on, and open the shutter. Your camera may differ. Check your camera user guide.

Another way is to buy an All-In-One card reader.
Plug a USB cable into it, and your computer.

This is an example,

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.

Hi Heidi.

Be sure your camera is on when you have connected it to your PC. Then you have to put it in Play mode and rewind the tape if it's a USB cable you connect with. Start Windows Movie Maker and test.

The following link could be useful http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/getstarted/default.mspx

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.
