Question about Samsung Digimax 230 Digital Camera

PC won't recognize camera as drive

I have a Samsung Digimax 230 and had no trouble moving pic to computer until recently. I had removed some programs, installed spy bot and firewall. I tried the patches and fixes on the Samsung site, removed spybot, disabled my firewall and antivirus (as rec. by Samsung rep) but NOTHING works to recognize my camera as a removable drive or downloading via digimax viewer.

Re: PC won't recognize camera as drive

I had the same problems downloading from my SD card reader to the computer. I suspect that the XP Wizard that automatically detects the removeable drive and pictures when you connect to the computer and the Samsung viewer software are conflicting with each other to do the same task. I removed the Samsung viewer software and the XP wizard now works fine.

Re: PC won't recognize camera as drive

In order to make the corrupted card usable again, try to rename the directory, copy an original directory from a card that's ok. So, at least, the card can be read again by the camera (and re-formatted). Doesn't guarantee that the next pictures might be seen...

I have downloaded the software and it still won't let me put pic on 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.

Connect camera to pc and wait for it to be installed, if its not installed automatically download from:

http://www.samsungcamera.com/customer/download/cus_down_main.asp?key=s500

The camera should then be recognized as a removable media device, then just navigate to the photos folder and drag and drop them where you want them.

Can't get pics/video from my camera onto new computer


There are 2 ways of doing this.

1) You can use the provided drivers/software that comes with your camera - usually ont he bundled CD-ROM, follow instructions and install it - and you can plug your camera using USB and transfering straight from your camera....

OR (this is my prefered method)

2) buying one of those multicard readers (assuming your PC does not have built-in ones already).

If you are using a card reader you do not need to isntall anything - it will be recognized automatically under Windows XP or higher.

The flash memory card will be recognized like removable storage and displayed along with your hard drives - go to your control panel and you see it pop-up once your memory card is inserted into the slot, a new drive letter will appear under removable storage - you will access your files the same way as a hard drive, by double clicking on the respective icon (example: you have 1 hard drive (1 partition) and 1 DVD-ROM, in your case you would see letters A floppy, C (your hard drive) and D your DVD-ROM, and when you plug your memory card, E. (this is an example). Once you double click on the respective drive letter of your memory card you will see folder with files in them - there will usually be ONE folder which contains all the JPG and AVI or MPG files.
