When I send my movie files (via a USB cable) from my digital camera (FinePix F460), they show up in my PC as jpg files (still pictures) instead of as movie files. I've tried to transfer the movie files to different computers and always get the same thing. They should show up as .avi files (I think.) Do I need special software? I'm using the wizard that came with Windows XP.

Thanks very much for responding to my problem. It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing. steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally. 2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7). 3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.
Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file. 2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy. 3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file. 5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck. It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.
You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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.
Mainboard component failure at a guess or the new battery is not up to scratch- try taking the battery back for a new one as it is a recent purchase.
If you can do that and still in trouble contact Fiji for a reapair estimate.

dovi answered: "Movies shot on FUJI's digital cameras are recorded in Motion JPEG format and can be played back using QuickTime version 3.0 or later.
(You can download QuickTime from the Apple Computer site).
To play back movies in Windows Media Player, download and install DirectX 8.0 or later from the DirectX website.

Now I try:
What are you using to access the pictures? from what I understand the software is looking only for pictures. Try to open it through explorer. Do you see your camera as an external drive under "my computer" when connected? good. Now right click on it and choose "explore", and send us a comment if you see the files there or not.
Then all you have to do is copy paste.
What did your PC screen say? It is the PC that does the file transfer not the camera. If you use a Window XP OS, a window on the PC screen should pop up and ask you what you want to do. If you don't see that (plug and unplug the USB cable again and/or use your window window explorer (right click on the start icon and choose explore) to look for your camera. I don't have a Finepix S304, may be the camera screen just telling you that it detected a PC hook up to the camera.
Good luck, Hope this help.
