Re: keeps asking for a driver

If the computer asks u for a specific driver, write the name down, and find it on your computer yourself. Hover you mouse over each file (hopefully, it will be less than 3 or 4). When you move the mouse slightly, it should give the exact address of the driver (usually C:/Windows/system/drivers --------or something that looks like that.

Now go back to where it ask you for the driver. Click "Browse" and browse to the exact location of the driver (the location you wrote down). The Best thing to do is not to even type in the location.........just use the "browse" button to get to driver.
Click "OK" or whatever.
if it asks you for another driver, u'll have to do the same.

I had to do this for a printer. Like everyone else, I thought I could just uninstall it and Windows XP would reinstall it. The only thing I can think of if that over time, these drivers may get lost in the system, they could be deleted accidentally, etc.

What system is your computer? XP / 2000 need no drivers, or software from the disk. Me should be OK with no drivers 98/98se do -but there are none available as far as I am aware.

You'd have to go into your Device manager and check to see if you can update or reconfigure the driver for the USB port you are using.Also if you've got another USB try switching to it. I'm sure you already have but, ya neva know!!!

Blury Display on FE140

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.
