Question about Fuji FinePix A500 Digital Camera
As soon as I connect the camera to my PC I get the message "select pictbridge at usb settings" Ive not tried to download direct to printer and the camera usb setting is for dsc .Any help appreciated.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

PictBridge is a specification announced by six private companies: Canon, Fuji, HP, Olympus, Seiko Epson and Sony, in December 2002. Its aim is to allow for direct printing between various brands of digital still cameras.

Reconnect the camera to the computer. and then go through the closure sequence one more and do not unplug the camera untill you are told to do so. Aalso get onto the FUJI tech support team.

The camera compares its PictBridge functions to the functions of the printer. The camera then displays the supported functions on menus on the LCD screen or in the viewfinder.
PictBridge print options
Once a PictBridge digital camera is connected to a compliant printer, print options appear on the camera LCD. The camera menu system is used to make settings such as print size, layout, media type and date.
You can print a single image displayed on the camera, print two or more images or print all images on the memory card. You can print part of an image by first cropping it within the camera and even create index prints, also known as contact sheets.
Print sizes and PictBridge
Not all PictBridge digital cameras let you select all available prints sizes, such as 13×19? if you have a wide format printer. If the printer has a memory card slot, use it and larger size prints should be available.
Is your device PictBridge compatible?
To find out if a camera or printer is PictBridge compatible, look for the PictBridge logo on the packaging or check the manual for specifications. If still unsure, call the manufacturer!
