Re: just the camera
Firstly, this camera doesn't need any special software for XP. Go to this link http://www.vivitar.com/vivitarwork/digicamdrivers8.php
and download a full users manual for your camera. It will have a section on how to hook your camera up to your computer. Most people by the way use card readers to save wear and tear on their cameras. Much more user friendly and usually faster.

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.
First. reboot the computer. If you leave your computer on all the time, an occasional reboot will often clear up an unresponsive program and "sharpen the teeth" so-to-speak. If you've done this, try going directly from USB cable to the camera. If it is still unresponsive, try plugging into a DIFFERENT USB port on the computer. If you've done all of this with the same cable, try using that cable and camera on a different computer. If it is unresponsive there, you may suspect the cable as being bad. Try a different cable. If you're still having issues, suspect that the USB port in the camera has gone bad and have a reputable repair shop take a look at it.
Connect the Camera to PC using the supplied USB cable, for windows XP and later versions the pc will identify the camera device and pop-up a window asking for "what to do next?" Select copy pictures from camera from the displayed list.
Please install software "Picture Package" CD came with camera. Connect USB cable to camera and other end of cable to PC. Windows XP or Vista will recognize it and install its drivers automatically. If camera is not recognized by Windows, go to camera Menu, enable USB Streaming and check. Hope info will help you.
Try uninstalling the Fuji software completely, through the Windows control panel. Don't use the supplied software at all. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer. Open "my computer" and note which drives are present. Now plug in the camera (still turned off) to the USB port. Turn the camera power switch on. Wait and see if a new drive icon shows up. It may take a minute or so. If you get a new icon (probably Fuji DSC or similar), you should be able to open the new drive and access the images through the various folders. If not, can you see images on the camera screen (when not connected to computer)? If yes, maybe a bad cable. If no, could be corrupted images on card.
