Sounds like the card or possibly the flash ram (built in software) has become corrupted, so that neither the camera or computer can read it. If the card can't be read, you're most likely out of luck getting your photos off the card.

How to fix a communication error


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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Best setting for a olympus stylus tough 6000


The best setting depends on what you're taking a picture of and, more importantly, what YOU want that picture to say to the viewer. The best setting for a portrait most likely won't be the best setting for a landscape, for example. You probably won't want a picture of a grandfather to convey the same impression and mood as a picture of his granddaughter, and you probably want something different for a picture of the two of them together.
That's why the camera offers so many different settings. It just takes pictures. You MAKE pictures by deciding what to include and exclude, whether you have a deep or narrow depth of field, and all the other little things.
The camera manual tells you what the various controls do. There should be plenty of introductory photography books at your local library that will explain the effects of those controls. I suggest taking one (or more) of those books, your camera manual, and the camera itself, and experimenting to see what happens with changing the various settings. Take a lot of pictures and look at them on your computer. You can always delete these pictures when you're done.

Cant read the xd card


Try http://www.spartanphotocenter.com/digital-camera-sensor-cleaning.html the card needs a data recovery (using special recovery software) and then a reformat. That may get most of your pictures back, but there will most likely be some (can't say how many or why) that will be corrupt and not usable. If the corrution is really bad no pictures will be available. No way to know except by attemoting a data recovery.

Memory card


From what i can find the Fuji S2 DSLR can only take up to a 2gb card, so this would explain card error the camera cannot register the space available.

I am getting more problems like this the card manufactures bringing out these large high speed cards, but only the newer cameras can use them, the older ones just show an error.

Similar problem with the computer especially if you have bought one of the new udma cards (305x speed) your computer or card reader might be letting you down. Have you tried formating the card in the computer and then writing a file to it, this will determine if there is a fault with the card.

Write protection


Hi, Please load it on to your computer and open it. You may see some folder(s). Right click it and goto Properties.
Now remove the read only checkbox and click apply. When asked, select apply for all subfolders and files in it.
Hopefully, now the disk should not be write protected.
:)
