Question about Samsung Digimax V4 Digital Camera
I own a Samsung Digimax V4 with a 512 Secure Digital Card and I am quite pleased with it. But just a few days ago, coming back from weekend trip I tried to download to my computer the pictures I had taken (my computer has the XP windows operating system). I was not able to access the files containing the pictures, the following window appeared: ?Removable Disk E. DCIM is not accessible. The Parameter is Incorrect.? I am pretty sure this is a software problem and not the camera?s but this is the first time it ever happened and honestly I do not know what is causing this problem or how to remedy it.

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.

I had exactly the same problem with windows giving me the same error message: "DCIM not accessilbe. The parameter is incorrect". I gave up trying to make it work then the next day I unplugged the usb cable on my device and replugged, started the computer, then restored the "Alexa related files" that Spy Bot Search and Destroy removed on a scan the day before. After that, it worked and I could retrieve my photos.
