Question about Fuji FinePix Z1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

How do you download pictures?

Hi, I put the USB cord into the camera stand thing and connected it to the computer, and then the Auto Play box popped onto my computer, and it opened to a file that said "Removable Disk (F:)"
And on the file it has a Text Document that say BOOTEX and a folder that says DCIM.
I clicked on the Text Document and this is what it said,
"Checking file system on E: The type of the file system is FAT.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You
may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended
that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk.
Unrecoverable error in folder \DCIM\100_FUJI.
Convert folder to file (Y/N)? Yes
Convert lost chains to files (Y/N)? Yes
378454016 bytes in 171 recovered files.
Windows has made corrections to the file system.

523665408 bytes total disk space.
32768 bytes in 2 folders.
378470400 bytes in 172 files.
145162240 bytes available on disk.
16384 bytes in each allocation unit.
31962 total allocation units on disk.
8860 allocation units available on disk."

The camera itself is working great, on the screen it shows a picture of a computer mouse and an arrow and it says DSC.

I have no idea what this means, and it won't open to any of the pictures I have taken.
Please help!

    I have the identical problem which is greatly exacerbated by the fact that FUJI have redone their website but havent updated links to FAQs or MANUALS. The website is a big disappointment considering the excellent product it supports.

I cant put pictures onto computer?

you have several options.
1. see first what operating system you computer runs.
if it is vista or mac, it will be recognized as unknown device,
look for SSCAM100 or DCIM folder. you will then see the camera files in that folder.

2. you should also download the cd driver, the cd that comes with the camera, to your PC. this will help the connection be proper.

3. if you're using desktop, try to connect the camera at the back of your tower. look for a USB port at the back of the tower and connect USB cord to it.

4. make sure you're using the proper USB cable, the cable that comes with the camera. for your S630, it is USB cable type 2.

5. also, make sure before you connect camera to PC, camera is turned off, when the USB cord is properly connected, that is the time camera should be turned on.

6. when unpluggin the camera to PC, make sure that you are safely removing the device from the PC so you will not have future connection problems.

hope my suggestions work for you.

Putting video footage on my computer

To get your footage into the computer from DV tape you need a four pin firewire (IEEE1493 or iLink) cable from the camera to a six pin cable into the computer. USB will not do a proper job, it's for downloding photos or as you already mentioned, Web caming.
