I recently tried to upload pictures from my camera onto my PC and the computer isn't registering the fact that my camera is attached with USB. It doesn't give me any messages. It just won't read the camera. I even tried installing the discs that came with it (even thought I have XP and I shouldn't have to).
Other than this, the camera is working fine. Help!

I had a similar problem recently - the computer wasn't even recognising that it was plugged in. I eventually took the battery out and charged it up, then later it worked perfectly. I hope this is helpful to you.
Make sure the camera is turned on, plug the USB cable into your PC first, then into the camera, wait for a beep from your PC to show it has recognized the hookup, then go to "My Computer" and look for the Fuji icon. Don't unplug the camera anytime the lights are flashing on it.
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.
I changed the resolution size under options before filming and uploaded the video onto my provided picture motion program given with purchase of camera. I then switched the file to my videos under my computer so I was able to upload them onto email, and internet.
Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.
This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.
I cannot speculate as to what is wrong with your camera but this solution should bypass the problem and enable you to copy your pics again.
If you have an XP Computer no software needed
In fact it would have been best left in the box.
Just plug the camera to the computer.
Set the upload control
Switch camera on
And in my computer the camera will show as new removable drive
Or a window will come up asking 'what the heck do I do with these pictures- and you click 'Send to folder
