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.
The camera does not charge the battery through the USB port. You have to use the supplied battery charger or an equivalent unit.

SOURCE: Have lost all my photos from my samsung digimax v800 camera card

Definitely Yes!

First of all, you should stop saving any new files to your SD card or taking new pictures with your Samsung Digimax v800 camera.


Then find some photo recovery software, which are able to recover deleted or formatted photos from cell phone, digital camera, memory card and SD card etc.


Digital Photo Recovery for Windows


Digital Photo Recovery for Mac OS X


Here are the steps:

Step 1: Download and install the Digital Photo Recovery Software.

Step 2: Connect your SD card to your PC or Mac.

Step 3: Scan the source drive where your lost pictures located.

Step 4: Recover the lost pictures and save them to another drive instead of the source drive.


Best regards!

Check sd card


The V800 works with SD cards. Your new 16GB card is a SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in this camera. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

We have a samsung digimax v800 camera but the zoom lens is stuck and wont go in,it is fully charged


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.
And here's a video summary of the steps:

What capacity SD card can I use in my Samsung Digimax V800, I was told only 1GB is this true. Thanks


The manual only guarantees cards up to 1GB. However, SD cards go up to 2GB and such cards should work. Cards larger than 2GB are SDHC and will NOT work.

Samsung Digimax as a webcam??


I know this isn't the answer you wanted to see, but no. The V800 was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card, not to stream them live to another device.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.
