Fuji Finepix 40i - Read error

I have had this camera for 5 years and it has been very reliable up to now. I can take pictures but when I view them on screen it comes up with a 'read error' and the light flashes red. This seems to have occurred since I downloaded all pictures on two separate discs on to my computer. I have reformatted both discs but this has not made any difference the same problem occurs. Can you suggest any solution? Thanks in anticipation

Re: Fuji Finepix 40i - Read error

These cameras only have a short life span, and I would say yours is about due. We had a 1.3mp digital camera until recently and it started doing the same thing. As digital cameras are so cheap now I would recommend having a look at a new one.

The only thing you could try is to get a new memory card as the cards may be damaged, but this may be throwing money away if you can't use the new card in another camera. It will depend on what type of card it uses, as most of the new cameras use a different type than the older ones.

I cannot download pics from my Fuji finepix T200 to my computer, the camera works fine and the pc is new, could it be the usb lead

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

My FinePix S1800 Fujifilm Digital SLR camera says Frame No. Full''

Go to set up then Frame and change to RENEW. It is probably on continuous. My camera did the same thing and this solved it.
Apparently even thought the card is empty if it is on continuous it will start the picture numbering where you left off last time.
