Re: camera connection turns pc screen blue

A typical issue if the host PC's motherboard drivers were never installed. This and more at http://www.usbman.com Sadly, you didn't tell the make/model/chipset of the host PC so I can't comment further.

Does the camera have a removable memory card? Could the card be put into a card reader connected to your computer via the USB port?

I need to get an operator's manuel.


At the website www.samsungcamera.com site you can download the manual and the driver for the Samsung Digimax 401 and the Digimax 4010 which are the same camera.

To get there go to the site and click on SUPPORT then at the bottom of page select page number 9 or in SEARCH type in 401 which will take you to the Digimax 401. DON'T FORGET THE DIGIMAX MODELS 401 AND 4010 ARE THE SAME. I proved it since I compared my 4010 manual to the PDF for 401 and page per page identical. You will have to select a language for the manual and assume also for the camera driver. I found that the Samsung site was not user friendly when I first used it looking for the 4010 model which is not listed but the 401 is there.

Hope this helps.

Sir..., i have the samsung digimax 401 digital camera..but when i insert sd memmory card showing "card error".. what's the problem..?


You just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

Creating an association


Use a card reader instead of the camera.

Can samsung Digimax 4010 be used as a web cam


To find out you should check on the Samsung website.

1. Navigate to http://www.samsung.com/au/.
2. Select Troubleshooting from the Support drop down menu, located top/right of screen.
3. In the Search product support field, type Digimax 4010. (NOTE: Check that it is 4010 and not 401). Press <Enter>.

Look at anything which appears to be relevant. I have quickly scanned the manual for the 401 and couldn't find anything that was related to using it as a WebCam however, SAMSUNG provided the following information to the question:

  1. Connect the USB cable to the camcorder and the PC.
  2. Power On the Camcorder and put in REC Mode. Windows will detect the device. (If you are using a DuoCam, you must use the Camcorder side.)
  3. Launch Messenger or other webcam software.
  4. If using Messenger, click on the Webcam Button in the message pane of the "contact" with whom you wish to share video. Read the agreement and click OK.
  5. Your streaming video will begin.
I hope this helps. Regards,

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.

And here is the solution... Eureka - we have found a cure. Internal memory of 16MB is shot. Buy a memory stick, insert and voila.... The camera is back too life. And apologies to Samsung....This is really an extrodinary little camera.
