Cameras don't usually require a driver for accessing the picture storage by USB cable. However other functions may require a driver. I expect Samsung provide this on their website in the downloads section.

The A7 can work with standard AA batteries so you could just pack several extra sets.

Without knowing what country you're in and what country you're traveling to, I can't give you any specific recommendations, but a local electronics or office-supply store should have a selection of adapters to fit the plug of your charger into foreign power outlets. I found one at a nearby Radio Shack for my upcoming overseas trip.

check the system requirements first on your installation box / case make sure your operating system is compatible or meets the requirements.

try to reboot your computer and re install the software if this does not resolve the problem try installing it on another computer

Do you really need the Samsung software?

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

The A7 uses MMC and SD cards. MMC cards are all but extinct, so look for SD cards. Make sure you get an SD card, 2GB or smaller, and not a higher-capacity SDHC card.

The A7 uses SD cards, which max out at 2GB. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

The A7 runs on two standard AA batteries, which should be available just about anywhere. If you want to use rechargeable batteries, you'll have to use a separate charger. Battery charges are available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.
