Why won't the driver for my fujifilm finepix AX300 install on windows vista?


Consider 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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

AIPTEK Dv8800 Driver malfunction? Answer


  1. aiptek web site has a driver solution for vista users I had same problem but with Win XP it keep seeing it as a flash drive .... I uninstalled drivers and re-installed them,- same error, then uninstalled again and removed the USB from device manager uninstalled direct X cause it was the newest version, then install everything from scratch without turning the camera on then try again and nothing, finally I turn to the manual and somewhere says "if you need to use it as web cam then press the menu button on the camera and select camara!!! as soon as I did that and additional port found in windows was detected and installed automatically then I got my video and microfono up and running. So easy right, but like always the software CD is missing the manuals too and people do not read. LOL .....

Only one drive showing out of two


Hi the cable ribbon is color coded. the blue should be connected to motherboard and the gray is a slave and the black is master. Check if you have this connected properly. If you got a Cable ribbon not color coded. The cable ribbon from motherboard connector about a 12 inches long from middle slave connector and 6 inches to the master connector. If this is not connected properly and HDD is not assign slave and master most likely the OS can not detect the HDD. The other way to check is to access your bios setup if the slave and master HDD is detect. Your PC have a capability of plug and play if you connect the hardware right and load the driver. Hope this info will help you to solve the problem.

I would suspect a corrupted catalog file, these are the map that a comupter uses to find its way around the drive, they are also the first casualty when a crash corrupts something. Disc warrior will write a new catalog and fix everything. PCs do not see discs formatted for macs.

Driver


If you are talking about the Agfa ePhoto CL18 Digital Camera, then you'll need drivers for the digital camera, not webcam drivers, but in a way, I use mine as a webcam sometimes, but using the drivers will only work for WIN95/98/98ME/98SE/WIN-XP etc. and the drivers won't work for WIN-Vista as Agfa discontinued supporting digital cameras and flatbed scanners, so I actually made Recovery disks for my WIN-Vista, so I could put that back unto this computer, which came with WIN-Vista, and used my WIN-XP disks and installed WIN-XP unto the computer just so I could use the WIN-XP driver. When installing the driver there's an error message telling me that it can't update DCOM, or DCOM95, or it can't update DCOM to WIN98, or some sort of error message, but I just rebooted the computer and the install completed. Sometimes however, the computer "loses track" of the driver or something because sometimes, when I start the Corel Photo House software, which came with the camera, there's a message telling me that it can't find the camera and that I should make sure that the camera is connected and turned on for example, but I found that if I go into the "add hardware" section again, then try the automatic install again, but instead of letting "it" find the driver, I tell the installer to choose how or where to look, the driver that was installed will show up on a list, then after I click on that choice, then it installs correctly...In other words, the driver installs correctly after installing it the first time, with the CD, then installing it a second time using the computer's "list" of drivers, if you know what I mean by that...It's where you click on where you choose what hardware you want to install and get the list of available drivers, if you know where I'm talking about?
Good luck in getting it going.
