Perhaps you ask this question in the category Digital video cameras? This category was reserved for camera flashes. You know the thing that gives a bright light for a short time?

I am getting a FEE error on a Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digital, the 300mm lens seems to be connected correctly. please help thank you.

I don't know if you have a manual fir this camera so I'm giving you a "Google" search link for a manual in PDF format. It the fourth one down.

Okay, I've had several Fuji Pro cameras including the S5 Pro and these cameras had dual memory card slots it's listed in section 6 page 24 of this PDF manual

Okay what can happen and happened to me several times (didn't learn the first time) was that I had the camera set on the Compact Flash card and filled it up but the camera needs to be manual set for the next card it's not automatic. So I'm going to assume that the media card you are trying to write the new picture files to is full.

You can download the pictures and then format the car (in the camera) then continue or switch to the other card in the card slot. This camera used a Smart Media and a Compact Flash Card.

Well, I assume you mean that this is the device you use to get the photos off your camera's memory card and not some kind of new camera interface :)...

A quick fix would be to let Windows do an update. Sometimes Windows Update will load the proper driver for your media card and then all is well. If not, then a trip to the HP web site is in order.

In all actuality, the HP site is pretty good about labeling their drivers. The only thing you have to do is surf to their Support local (i.e., the Support tab on their site). In the top available box, type in your particular model number and hit enter.

The next option you'll be offered is which version of Windows your running. In the next example is one of the more likely areas that you will find the proper driver for your media reader...

Hope this helps...

Olympus E10 pins bent on compact flash slot

That is correct. The camera should default and detect that a smartmedia card is now inserted to the camera and write the images to that card. As I stated earlier, the cards are independent of each other.

The compact flash slot in my Olympus E10 has two bent pins

You can also use the smart media card slot. The two cards function independently of each other.

Based on what you report the camera would need to be serviced. Regretfully all parts, accessories and repair service have been discontinued due to the age of the camera.
You may refer to the yellow pages for local camera repair centers who maybe able to offer parts and service on the camera.
As a loyal Olympus customer, our Customer Service Department is also available to discuss other options available to you.
They can be reached Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM until 7:00PM East Coast time, at: 1(800)622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

File numbers problem in S4

I think you may have a defective camera - my S4 does not do this. Maybe you should reset the camera software by taking out the battery for a couple days and then try it again.

Smartmedia Panorama mode

I don't know what you are doing, but my Nikon 4500 has a panoramic feature. It has nothing to do with the memory card. When you put it in panorama mode, on the second and subsequent shots, it shows about 1/3 of the previous shot in the viewfinder. You line that up with your present shot, and take the picture. The Nikon software, on a computer, can probably stitch the photos back together. You can do the same thing in an image editing program.
