Re: can't download pictures from camera

Perhaps your Fuji download program is corrupted, or your cable has been broken. Most computers now have a direct plug-in for your memory card, as well as plenty of built-in programs to download your pictures. I like the Vista Photo Gallery (come to think of it, it is the ONLY thing I like about Vista. At any rate, unplug your xD chip from the battery compartment (you can just pull it out, or push it and it pops up), (and close the battery compartment, or you will have to reset the date and time), plug it into your computer, and wait for a bunch of programs to pop up eager to download your photos. If that doesn't work, you may have a bad chip--but if you had a bad chip, you couldn't view your pictures on your camera. If you have XP, you should be able to see the xD as a new drive if you plug it in--not sure which programs will pop up, but you may be able to move the pix just like any files from one drive to another. Good luck. Incidentally, if you need a new cable, internet charges range from 3 to $25.

I was recently given the FinePix E550 by someone who had purchased a newer camera. I do not have the usb cord to download pix and my Dell 942 All-in-One will not recognize the camera card. What do I need...


The problem you are experiencing with your Fuji FinePix E550 could be down to a number of reasons.

You do not say the memory card size you are using but the Dell 942 will probably only read cards xD-Picture Cards 1Gb or lower.

It maybe a better idea to remove the xD card from the camera and use a USB card reader to take the images off the card. Alternatively you could buy a replacement USB cable

Hope the suggestions help.

Pictures will not automatically download from our Finepix E550 camera onto the PC

The quickest, least hassle and best way to get pictures from the camera to the computer is with a memory card reader. These devices are relatively inexpensive and connect to the USB port of your computer. When the memory card is installed the computer see it as an external Hard Drive and the files can be opened copied and pasted in a new folder in your "My Documents"

How do i upload pictures from finepix e550

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Pictures have distorted coloration

This has happened with a few cameras that I have had in for repair and removing the optical sensor ribbon from its socket and then fitting it back in has worked about 80% of the time.

Depressing my shutter button on my Fuji FinePix E550 causes it to turn off. When I turn it back on there is a no image message. Is it cheaper to buy a new camera than to have it fixed? Thanks for help

You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!

E550 camera installation CD only has driver updates

You really don't need the Fuji download program to download everything from your camera. Any number of programs in Windows XP or Vista or from other cameras should work as well as Finepix. I have an E550 and usually download with Windows Photo Gallery--the compatible programs pop us as soon as you connect your camera with a cable, or put the xD memory chip into the computer chip reader. Still, if you want the original, you can download it all at
and choose the right one for your OS. I'm sure Fuji will have a download of the instruction manual, as well.

Good luck.
