Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I recently got a new computer and I have plugged the USB cable from my samsung es57 digital camera into my PC and it says that it is "searching preconfigured driver folders" I want to be able to upload my pictures to my new PC but I think I had a disc with the camera when I bought it but cant find the disc and am wondering if that is a problem. I have phoned Samsung but they say you can download the program for my PC to recognise my camera please help me!!

There are many ways to download photos from the camera without using the disc that came with the camera.

1- After plugging the camera and turning it on the download setting go to My Computer. The camera card should appear there as E: or D: click until you see other folders and your photos will be in the DCIM folder. copy that and paste it.

2- Or use a card reader not a cable and use the same method.

3- Or use the above two methods, but use Picasa free softweare to Import the photos. It needs a bit of stude and practice. Make sure not to delete or format the camera memory card until you have downloaded and saved the photo to the computer and another placfe such as an external hard drive, a DVD or USB etc.

When I am connecting my Samaung Digital model S860 with PC having Windows Xp (Profectional) via USB cable, nothing is happening at PC screen. Also I don't have driver CD with my camera. Please sen


Try 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.

Hi there,

If you want to download the pictures on your camera, try plugging it into the usb port of your computer using the usb cable. Then turn on the camera and make sure it is set to REVIEW MODE. Usually, this opens the sofware. It not, then, on your computer, click Start button >> All Programs >> Accessories and choose Scanners and Cameras. It will open up the window which will show the pictures and from there, follow the steps to download them.


Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FIxYa.

i am now facing the same problem but i found that i need to buy a mini DV cable to connect from the camera to the computer, the USB connection to the computer only allows you to transfer digital images from the camera that you have stored on the memory stick which you may not have inserted in the camera as the computer indicated to you
