Ribbon strip busted or come out of it's socket on the board. But I'd say the ribbon is busted because it has to be folded back on it's self to fit in it's socket. And it's a common problem with this model. Cheapest option is a donor camera off ebay for parts
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.
Try formatting the card in the camera using the setting in the camera's menu.
Some makes of xd or sd cards do not work correctly in fuji camera's. Sometimes even formatting them in the camera does not have any effect.
To fix this go into Menu ---> Setup. From there there's a Frame Number setting. It is normally set to: Continuous. The other option is: Renew which evidently simply resets the picture count. After selecting Renew the error message disappears and the camera works perfectly again.
Hey peewack65, According to the manufacturer this message means that the camera is not connected to the computer properly, which could be due to a faulty USB cord. I would also make sure your drivers have not been accidentally deleted, and you could try updating your drivers. Another option is to upload your images from your memory card to the computer using a card reader that plugs into a USB port. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
