I assume you're following the instructions in the manual.  If so, search your computer for connected drives - in Windows, just (double) click on 'My Computer'.  If the camera is connected, it will show up as if it's just another drive.

Open it - double click on it - then each folder in turn until a bunch of picture files show up.  Copy and paste that last folder to your hard disk and open the files in the usual way, with your ordinary picture viewer, not the Fuji software.

If the camera doesn't show up, remove the memory card and use a USB card reader - preferably borrowed - just as if it's the camera, as described above.  

If that doesn't get your pictures onto the computer, you have either a camera or USB problem and it's time to get professional help.

If you are able to get your pics. downloaded, rename the copied folder on your hard drive, select all the files on the camera/card - NOT the folders - and delete them.  You now have a useable, empty memory card and all your pics in a meaningfully-named folder on your computer, and you're back in business.

For my money, the Finepix software is rubbish, anyway - and a card reader is usually quicker to download and doesn't use up your batteries!  Fuji's support site should be able to help you get back in business when you have time to research/e-mail them, though.

You don't need a driver.


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.

How can I snap A black & white still picture by finepix S8100fd Please help me...


Press the F button to bring up the F-mode menu. Use cursor-up/down to select "Color" then press cursor-right. Use cursor-up/down to select "B&W" and press MENU/OK. It's all in the "Using [F-MODE MENU] (Photography) [SHOOTING MENU]" section in the manual (page 73 in my copy).

In general you're better off shooting in color and doing the B&W conversion in a photo editing program on a computer. If you let the camera do it, it's going to do it its own way. On a computer, you have complete control over brightness, luminosity, contrast, and other factors. You can also simulate filter effects. And if you happen to take that once-in-a-lifetime picture, you can't convert from black&white to color.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

I have a brand new Finepix S8100fd camera and the majority of the photos are speckled no matter what setting I use. However the super macro setting rocks and pictures are super clear! My Fuji 7.1 mega


Common issue with the A8100fd. The most likely problem you are having is not enough light. Try shooting in bright sunlight to test the "graininess". Make sure you use the flash anytime the light is not bright. Even though the camera will shoot in low light (without flash), because it defaults to a high ISO setting, which (just like film) accentuates the "grain", or more properly termed in digital photography, "noise". Set the camera for a low ISO setting and use the flash whenever you see the "red hand" symbol on the screen.
