    Default Samsung Smart Camera WB250F

    Bought my self a little toy...Great camera, really like the pictures. Unfortunately I am unable to connect the camera to my Windows 10 PC. It appears the thge original apps are not compatible. Does anyone know I I might be able to do a work around as the camera is wi-fi enabled. Cheers and thanks for looking.

    The Camera comes pre loaded with software. Did you read the instructions ?

    https://www.samsung.com/sg/support/c...camera-wb250f/

    Heres also the complete manual ( scroll down to select the languages (PDF) https://www.camerauserguide.net/sams...uide-pdf/15738

    Pages 102 - 105 Describes the same instructions as per the above video.
    Page 112 shows how to connect to a wireless network.

    Installed on Windows 10 21H1 Sandbox (latest version Windows 10 today) Works fine - only missing the camera

    Many thanks for your help. I have now been able to install ilauncher, but it also requires PCAUTO BACKUP, when I try to install it says to check my operating system. (see photos) Thanks.

    It May work in Compatibility Mode ?

    Cant really do much more as it may require the Cameria to be connected.

    I assume ?? You are just trying to get the Pictures to the Computer ?? If So connecting the USB with the Correct Setting on the dial and navigate to the DCIM Folder (page 102 of manual) then Copy/paste the folder. Thats how I do it on my cameria as the software is simply to unstable, or you can always try this ----- https://asktcl.com/cameras/the-offic...in-windows-10/

    With my Phone you have to select what the USB does, either charge or file transfer.

    Hi Wainuitech, thank you for your efforts. I have no problem getting the pictures, I just wanted to be able to use all the "Bells and whistles". I will try it on an old Windows & laptop I have. Thanks again for your help. Have a great weekend. :-)

    Does it now. And why would it need an automatic backup of your PC? Sounds like addon bloatware if not malware.
    Just the driver will do....once windows sees the camera that's all you need.

    Bells and whistles are 3rd party anyway...a photo editor, your own files backup etc.
