Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
I am having a similar problem. I put mine in its dock, connected the USB cable to my computer, and pressed the USB button on the dock. The light turned green and after 30 or so seconds, the message Check Connections came up on the camera.

I got the same error on my EX-Z850. The docking station USB cable was plugged into a USB extension cable, which was plugged into the computer. After I plugged the USB from the docking station directly into the computer, the connection was found right away. I think the female end of the extension cable wasn't deep enough to make a good connection.

I had the exact same problem as described, originally I thought it was the battery because it would flash the green light and then turn off. But eventually I got the battery to stay on for like 40-45 seconds and then it would say "check connections" and die.
I think this error arises when the cable connecting the camera and the computer is disconnected before a file has a chance to finish transfering.
To fix the problem, fully charge your camera and then hook it up to your computer, you should be able to see and move around the files on the camera (if you can't something else is wrong). Just move a few files off the camera to ensure the connection is stable and then safely remove the camera, it should now work perfect. If it doesn't then you might need to use the safely remove hardware icon in the windows tray (near where the time is).
I am glad I worked this out, I was about to buy a new one!

Make sure that your cable are plugged in all the way. About the only time I have seen this error msg is if the cable isn't plugged in all the way.

I had the same problem for a long long time. But finally one day I got frustrated and pushed hard on the USB connection and wiggled it a little into the dock. And it popped further in! And voila! It worked! The whole time it felt as if it were placed right into the dock. But it wasn't. Now I know when the usb is working, because the little green light flashes quickly when it's working right. When it's not connected right, the green light simply remains solid. Hope this can help you.
