Question about Fuji Finepix S5800 Digital Camera

Can't download images: Finepix S5800

Hi. My Finepix S5800 is not being picked up by my computer (Windows Vista PC, yes I know why Vista). I have deinstalled and reinstalled the software - but the computer doesn't recognise the camera is in, and if I open up the finepix software it just goes to the browse menu ratehr than instantly downloading when I put the camera on. Anyone know what's likely to be the issue here?

thanks in advance
Heather

    I have the same problem, could be the usb lead has become damaged, I am going to buy a new one after I test on a friends pc, if this does not fix it I wil buy a cheap SD card reader.

    I also have the same problem. I have just upgraded my old XP computer to a new one with Vista on it loaded the camera software on to the new computer to download photo's & Fuji Finepix won't see camera connecting. Tried updating to the latest Finepix software & it still won't see camera.

    Same problem here using Vista, although for the last two months everything worked fine. No problem with USB cabel as it worked fine when tested on a separate XP system. Everytime I turn the camera on to dowload images I get Windows default sound and absolutely nothing more. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My problem was fixed easily in the end, the memory card needed to be formatted by the camera in question then the computer recognised it without difficulty.

Hi there,
you need to update the drivers on your computer by the sounds of things. Or alternatively re-load the software disc for the camera.

Good Luck.

Want Increase resolution from 72dpi to 200 dpi


increase in dpi will not increase the resolution. dpi = dots per inch for example you have a res of 1024x768 at 72dpi you get a printed image of 14.2x10.6 inch at 300dpi you get a printed image of 3.4x2.5 inch
only thing possible is to interpolate the image. but thats **** in my opinion.

Hi , I get an error message everytime I try to view my saved snap


Sounds like there's a problem with the memory card. Reformat it with the camera or try a different (new) one.
Cheers

Hi, I have a finepix s5800 camera. I went to install it on my laptop (its already installed on my other computer), but now I cannot find the installation disk..... what can I do? Will I need to buy another...


I suggest that you logon to the fuji website and update the picture program offered for your camera. But any picture program on your computer may read the pics when you attach the camera and turn it on picture display. I have an s7000 and rarely use the one offered by Fuji.  My olympus and canon programs also work with my fuji camera.

Brand new camera - no image in view finder


Have you tried to format the camera? Alternatively, and don't mean to sound rude but have you taken the lense cap off?
Are you getting any menu options on the lcd screen or is it totally blank? If this is the case then likely there is a problem with your camera and you should speak to who ever you bought it from.

Good Luck.
