Consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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.

Hi there, To get your camera to connect to your computer, follow these steps: 1) Enable USB mode - press menu, go up, and select setup. Select USB and press OK. Select Mass storage and press OK. Save the changes. 2) Make sure the PictureProject software is installed from the CD that came with the camera. 3) Launch PictureProject 4) Connect the camera to the computer 5) Turn on the camera and press the "transfer" button.

No detect


Please set the "USB Connect" option in the Menu of the Camera to "Mass Storage" option.
Steps to go to USB Connect option:
Press Menu button and select Setup option.
Then select the Setup 2 and then the USB Connect option

Then connect the Camera to the Computer and the Camera will be recognized as a removable device in "My Computer".

The Computer recognizes the Camera as a Removable device just like a Pen Drive. You can access the files in the Camera in the same way you access the files in the Pen Drive.

Then copy the files and paste them to a desired location on the Hard drive of the Computer.

If this does not work, then you may select the "PTP" option and Pictbridge option before connecting the Camera to the Computer to check if they work.

Please use the supplied USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer.

How can i download pictures on my SGH-G800 to my computer?


The quickest way to do this is to put your phone into Mass Storage Mode then connect it via the USB cable to your computer. Your phone shows up as a USB Mass Storage Device and you can select the folders you want to download your pictures from.

To set your phone to Mass Storage Mode, do the following:

- Go to the main menu
- Select Settings
- Then Select Phone Settings
- Choose PC Connections from the menu
- And then click on Mass Storage.

When you connect the USB cable to your computer, your phone will show up as a USB Storage device and you can just copy and past files to it like you would a USB Thumb drive. If you select the Samsung PC Studio option...your file transfers will take ALL DAY. Just use Mass Storage mode. Good luck.

Voice recording transfer


If you have a USB card reader for your memory card, just plug it into the computer and the computer will treat the memory card like a thumb drive. Otherwise, once you select the Mass Storage option, you need to plug the camera into the computer and it should be treated like a thumb drive. I personally perfer the USB card reader, its a lot easier than having to keep up with a cable and remembering to change the camera over to the appropirate mode. Plus the USB Card readers can be found under 10 bucks on the net now. Hope this helps
