Can't get my computer (win xp) to detect my finepix camera

Can't get my computer (win xp) to detect my FujiFilm Finepix camera. though on another computer it works fine after installing the WinXp drivers from Fujifilm's site.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times with no luck, and I have no problems in my device manager as well. any suggestions?

Sounds like there is no connection between your camera and your pc.
Try another USB port on your PC.
You actually do not require a driver for XP.
XP will automatically detect the camera. SP2 + 3
If all fails, get a card reader.

    I am afraid that your xp installation or your PC has a problem.

    A cardreader (cheap to buy) would prove that, because it is also connected to the USB port.

My computer doesn't detect my finepix s602zoom

I have not had this problem, but I always use a card reader to upload my photos.
It saves on wear and tear on the small usb socket on the side of the camera. I can't see any reason to use a cable if all I need is to upload photos.

You shouldn't need a driver for xp and above as it will be detected as a generic card reader..(As per the manual information)

Having said that there is a driver available from the Fuji site..

I remember finding this confusing when I was looking for a driver for my S602
