"Communication Error" when trying to upload photos

I've had my camera since December, and this is the first time this problem has happened:

After I've plugged in the USB cord into the port and turned on the camera, the white USB screen comes up for a few seconds. Then it says "Communication Error!" and a red exclamation point appears. I have NO clue what is causing this. The last time I uploaded photos was yesterday and everything was fine...can anyone help me figure this out?   On connecting the camera to the USB port , i got a  'Communications Error' displayed on the screen.
  From viewing simmilar problems with fuji cameras here, which started suddenly during the year- I suspect the new XP USB drivers that came with the XP SP 3 may have caused the problem.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Troubleshooting the camera displaying Communication Error when connected to the computer via USB. If the camera displays "Communication Error," when trying to download images the main cause for this error is that there are more than 1000 images stored on the memory card. It is recommended if there are more than 1000 images on the memory card, that you use a card reader to acquire the images, or to delete images off of the memory so that there are less than 1000 images to download from the memory card.
If this is not the case, there are not 1000 or more images on the memory card, try reconnecting the camera to abnother port on the computer, try another cable or another computer. This error can also display when connecting to a direct print printer. Please check with the printer manufacturer for more information on this error.
