Samsung Digimax V4 jpeg problems

Hi, Tried to read images from an SD card taken from a Samsung Digimax V4 camera. Put the SD card in a reader (that reads from other SD cards without any problems) and the files are visible alright but when trying to open them with the default windows XP viewer it complains that they're not a valid JPEG format. The same thing happens if you try to open them with Photoshop Elements. Since I don't own the camera I'm not sure whether this is normal behaviour. Anyone else seen this problem? Thanks, Kieran.

Re: Samsung Digimax V4 jpeg problems

Did you try to copy the files to your computer first then open them? While the SD is in the reader, you should run a chkdsk on the SD drive to make sure there are no lost clusters etc. maybe the file table is corrupted...

My Samsung S630 won't connect to the computer so that I can download photos taken. Any clues as to the problem?


Problem with the actual cable, the USB port being used on the computer, or the actual connection on the camera itself. The quick fix would be to take the memory card out of the camera and purchase a cheap memory card reader that you can put the card into and the PC will read that fine. From there you can copy the images over and even delete them. It reads like a jump drive.

Prices start about $10.

My samsung digimax s500 seems to be stuck on. I can't turn it off. If I open the battery door will I lose the pictures on the SD card?


No . The pictures that are stored on the SD card can be downloaded on to the PC as the images are stored on to the card and will not be deleted unless you do with the camera menu or the PC.
Once the SD card is taken out remove the battery and tryt o tap lightly on the camera with the hood down. It might release any jamming . repeat with the battery put in , with the power ON.
If not contact Samsung service.

If finding the right software is an issue, perhaps using a USB card reader to access the images on the SD card frome the camera is an option. It's a little more effort, but works quite well and doesn't require a special driver since the images are probably in JPEG format. Just access the files on the card as though it was a flash drive or any other type of storage device.

Samsung Digimax 201 and INFINEON 128mB SD Card


Had a similar problem running windows XP, it couldn't read my sandisk SD card on a usb sandisk imagemate reader/writer. The solution on Microsoft's site was worthless, having already applied all XP patches. Fortunately, I tried accessing the SD card under windows 2000 and it worked fine, so I formatted the SD card in windows 2000 and now it works fine in XP.
