I can't put pictures from my camera onto my computer using the USB port. My computer recognizes that the camera is there, but when I try to get the pictures onto the ocmputer, it tells me that the camera/scanner is in use. I've turned off the scanner.... which is a scanner/printer/faxer/copier all in one. (If that makes a difference.)
I dont know what to do. I hope this isn't a horribly stupid problem. Help me please! Thanks

Hi, Try camera in another USB port of laptop and also check it with another USB cable, if still problem not solved then plug camera in any other computer to make sure that it is problem of camera. If camera still wont work in other computer then its USB port got defective, please use memory card reader to transfer pictures in computer, take out memory card from camera, put it in memory card reader and plug it in USB port of computer. Thanks.
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.
There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".
- Connect the smaller end of the USB cable into the USB port of your DXG. - Connect the other end of the USB cable to your computer's USB port. - The Digital video camera’s LCD Panel will turn on and will display the PC Connection Menu - Press the select button up or down button to select Mass Storage Device option on the menu screen.
Goto my computer, you can see new 1 drive appear (or 2 if you have SD card in your DXG). So now you can copy/upload your pictures to your computer hard disk.
if it came with a USB cord, or atleast has a USB port on it you should be able to plug it in to the USB port on your computer and your computer should recognize it. mine does (different camera), and I don't have a disk with my camera either. hope that helps :) good luck!
Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download your pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon:
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.
