Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera

My camera stopped working after downloading pictures

I was downloading images from camera to computer. I was called away and left the camera connected to the computer; someone else used the computer. I came back later and disconnected the camera from the computer and now it is totally unresponsive, even with new batteries. Can my camera be revived?

I don't believe the usb cable had anything to do with it. That cable doesn't provide any power. Its a data line. If it did it would charge your battery for you at the same time.

Do you have a power cord for your camera for charging batteries with?

Kodak z740 will not download pictures from camera to computer


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.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

How may I download to my computer only the latest picture I have taken. The software seems to download all the pictures on the camera when it is connected.


Stop downloading using a USB cable. Buy a memory card with a card reader. Uploads pictures 10 times faster. You can access your images by looking at your hard drive explorer tool in Windows.

I would try to replace the usb cable, but it sounds more like a software problem not the camera. If the camera shuts off during transmission it will keep the pictures from transporting.

Finepix S5700


This is from Fuji when I emailed them with the same problem.

Is their a yellow question mark, red cross or similar next to finepix ptp camera in device manager ?
Do you have an all in one scanner/printer or a webcam connected to windows xp pc ?
As it is possible the above may conflict with the camera.

We will temporarily disable your scanner.
Please try the following,
Connect your scanner, switch the scanner on, right click on Computer, left click on Properties, left click on Hardware and left click on Device Manager.
Please left click on the plus sign next to Imaging Devices, your scanner will be listed in this section.
Right click on the scanner, left click on Disable, click on Yes, a red cross will appear next to the scanner and please do not restart pc.
Please switch the scanner off or disconnect, connect the camera and switch on.
In the same Imaging devices section, right click on Finepix ptp camera, left click on uninstall, click on OK, do not restart pc and please switch the camera off.
Please double left click on the finepix viewer program icon on your desktop, please click on the drop down menu, SETTINGS, left click on OPERATION SETTINGS WHEN CAMERA IS CONNECTED.
Please untick AUTOSTART FINEPIX VIEWER WHEN THE CAMERA IS CONNECTED, click on OK and then restart computer.
After your pc has rebooted and you are back to desktop, please switch the camera on.
The Fuji camera will be re-installed, a box should appear in the middle of your screen, click on scanner & camera wizard.
If the box does not appear then please double left click on my computer, right click on the Fuji camera model, left click on Get Pictures and follow the on screen prompts to download the images.

Didn't work for me and I gave in and bought a card reader, but it's worth a shot.

Have you checked the HP hep site?
Here is their suggestion
Introduction This document explains how to transfer images from the camera to a computer running Windows XP operating system by using a universal serial bus (USB) cable. Transferring the images Follow the steps below to transfer images from the camera to a Windows XP computer. Step one: Connect the camera to the computer
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer. Figure 1: Connect the USB cable c00878070.gif
  3. Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files: Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
  1. Make sure the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. If the software is loaded, then go to step 2. If the software is not loaded, click here to upgrade to the latest version of imaging and printing software (in English).
  2. If images on the camera are selected for printing or selected for HP Instant Share destinations, make sure the computer is connected to a printer and the Internet.
  3. Turn on the camera. The HP Import Photos software starts on your computer. If you have set the software to automatically transfer the images in the camera, the images automatically transfer to the computer. Otherwise, in the Transfer images from Camera/Card screen, click Start Transfer . The images are transferred to the computer, and then if there are any still images that were previously selected for HP Instant Share destinations, those actions are started.
  4. When the Image Action Summary screen appears on the computer, you can disconnect the camera from the computer.
Method two: Transfer images without the HP Photosmart software If you do not, or cannot, install HP Photosmart Software on your computer, you can still transfer images from the camera to the computer using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) in Windows XP. Follow the steps below to transfer images.
  1. Turn on the camera. Windows will automatically launch a program to transfer the images.
  2. When the images have finished transferring, disconnect the camera from the computer.
  3. If you encounter problems, check that the camera USB Configuration in the Setup Menu is set to Digital Camera .
    1. While in Live View , press the Live View/Playbackc00591915.gif button, and then press the Menu/OKc00280209.gif button.
    2. Scroll to the Setup Menuc00595863.gif using the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons.
    3. Use the up/down arrow c00280207.gif buttons to scroll through the Setup Menu to highlight the USB option.
    4. Use the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons to change the setting to Digital Camera and then press the Menu/OKc00280209.gif button.
    5. To exit from the Setup Menu , press the Live View/Playbackc00591915.gif button.
  4. Reconnect the camera to the computer.

Problems when connecting Canon Powershot A70 - Cannot find program to upload pix


The popup would be the windows wizard wanting to assist with downloading image files. There's 2 popups one is the wizard and you'll click on transfer images & it walks you step by step to download the images. The other one is just a one click option & you can copy the images files to your computer. But since those options don't seem to work for you - one solution would be to click on "my computer" and you'll either find your camera or memory card listed along side your computers C drive. If you're downloading images from the camera - it needs to be hooked up via the cable + the camera probably needs to be turned on. Some cameras also have a setting or button to turn in order to download the images.
