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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.
You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot
When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.
I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.
If your new xD card is an "H" or "M" type card, it is only compatable with the A340 following a firmware upgrade to the camera. http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3721.xml is a link to the software and steps you can take to perform the upgrade.
Storage cards can go bad, but usually this happens only after a long period of
time (years), or if exposed to a magnetic force of some kind.
You can try a few things to resolve it:
1. Try reformatting the card, if the device can process data on it.
Insert the card into a card reader on a PC to see if the drive can be
read. If you can read the card, remove all data and empty the trash,
then reformat it.
3. If you get an error on that as well, replace it.
It's not worth risking that you might lose your valuable pictures to unstable media.
I think this is a general Fuji design fault in the camera circuitry. I have an older F455 which has exactly the same problem and I did the same - bought new batteries only to discover that didn't help.
The only solution is to spend even more money for a stand alone battery charger.
