Question about Samsung Cameras
No. For a camera to be used as a webcam, it requires special drivers and also the camera has to have webcam capabilities. The A6 has neither of those.

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.

Have you considered NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
