20 Most Recent Samsung S760 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

I think I can help you with this as I was baffled by the same problem myself.
All Samsung Digimax cameras use very high quality AVI (MJPEG) to record video.
In order to view this on your pc you need the Xvid codec which is available FREE here:
You may also benefit from having the FREE divx codec package available at:
I think you'll find that this will solve your problem.
Good luck!

There is software available for Mac for this camera, even on Samsung support, if you want to transfer data from camera, you need to use card reader for the purpose.
Hope this helps.

I have had success with this... Download the program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

You need to use a card reader either one already in your computer (some have one, some don't). Or buy an external USB card reader. They are around $2 on Amazon.

The problem with built in card readers is that they will usually only read up to a 2G card.

I was not able to recover photos by hooking the camera up to the pc with the usb cord, it just won't work.

You can try to recover them with a recovery software. There are a few available on Hiren's Boot CD which are free http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html

Also, you can opt to get a paid one, like Digital Pictures Recovery Software http://www.picrecovery.com/

It's no problem at all to get them back. Do not take any more pictures, and remove the card from the camera to lessen the chance of you overwriting some important pictures or videos. There are VERY many freeware software options available to help you recover your files. Please see this blog article that reviews several of the better freeware recovery programs that you can download. You may need to use a card reader with these programs though.

All the download links listed in the article are available through CNET. This was to primarily ensure through CNET's verification process that these would be malware free software, and to also give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

Dont worry, you can recover deleted photos from camera with camera recovery software.

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download asoftech photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Samsung has the manual for the S760 on their support page: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/EC-S760ZSBA/E2 . Scroll down to the User Manual link on the left side of the page. Note: this manual covers two models (S860 and 760). The direct link is http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200902/20090202162312203/S860_760_English.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Pull the battery out

Do you really need a driver?

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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

When you are sure you have card contents backed up format the crd in the cmra by which I mean use the cmra to format the card.

Replace the battery's or fully charge the Ni-cad.. IF you have done this, Do you have a "Flash card or Data card? You might have to Format it.. A bad Data card will give the camera an Error, and won't turn on.. IF you have Pictures on your card Some people Can Read the bad Data and still get the pics off... If you dont care about whats on the card just Format it in a computer that has a port to insert the card... Good luck.. P.S. some camera's have a second set of "Memory" battery's, the ones that keep the date and stuff in order.. You might want to change them, They are "Button" batterys looks like the ones for a watch.. Should be 3 of them. Right next to the AA's or AAA's main batterys . Enjoy... BCB
