Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Connecting camera to computer

I have installed a new wireless router/modem and have been having trouble importing pictures from my samsung digimax S500 camera. The computer says it cannot locate the driver and does not list the camer on the screen as a device. I didn't used to have problems with this...can you help? I have tried many things.

    Yes, router has no bearing on this...When I plug in the camera, it makes the computer crash. I have a PC with Windows Vista. It does not show me the display about what to do with the images, like it used to.



    When I go to "computer," it shows DVD RW Drive (E:) Samsung

    When I click on that, it shows a pic of the camera and says I can install, but it won't install. Does this info help?

You did not mention the computer.
I am going to assume it a PC and you have
Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista

The router installation has no bearing on the camera upload problem

Make sure the camera has a fully charged battery.
Plug the camera into the computer making sure the camera is set to the uploade mode.
Windos will then display the camera/scanner wizard asking you what to do with the images.
If this does not happen- look at 'My Computer'
Do you see an new 'Remoceable drive'?
Come back if non of this is happening

Free software installation disk for samsung digimax A7


Do you really need the Samsung software?

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

The only light on my router is the router light. No other lights are coming on. I have tried rebooting.


When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:

Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.

Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.

Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).

Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.

Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.

Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.

If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.

I'm having trouble downloading photos to my computer with the software that came with my camera. What can I do? Someone deleted my digimax master off of my computer,and i can't upload pictures now for...


No need for you to install any CD software because your camera
will be recognized automatically as a removable disk when your computer has the following Operating Systems.

For transferring pictures with OS (Windows 98/XP/Vista/2000/MAC 9.2-10.3 ):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied
in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.

PC won't recognize camera as drive


in order to make the corrupted card usable again, try to rename the directory, copy an original directory from a card that's ok. So, at least, the card can be read again by the camera (and re-formatted). Doesn't guarantee that the next pictures might be seen...
