    Dear Leo2

    Do you mean with the camera still turned on? I definitely had it in review mode before I tried earlier.

    Kind regards,

    Jim

    Same issue Leo2

    I tried it with the camera on, folloed the instructions. It is not a matter of the camera. It's something in the Device management software within Vista. The dirver has loaded but the device is not registering properly.

    Thanks again

    I have the same problem with my FE 280. XP Pro just doesn't pick up the driver correctly, and always says the device has malfunctioned. Device Manager it show up with the yellow mark and no amount of reinstalling deleting will make it work properly. Very frustrating

I had this same problem, I'm using Vista on my HP laptop and I managed to correct it. Apparently HP like to customize Vista and when connecting some USB device's they don't recognise them as what they should. A USB mass storage device. You will need to connect the camera to the computer, the camera will come on then click the ok button so it selects PC. Wait until it finishes its search click cancel and open device manager, scroll down and below Network Adaptors you should see an expandable tree with an yellow exclamation mark named Portable Device's --> FE-280/X820/C520 you will need to right click on the FE-280/X820/C520 icon and select "Update driver software". Then select "Browse my computer for driver software" then select "Let me pick from a list of device driver's on my computer" Scroll down till you see "Universal serial bus controllers" then select "USB Mass storage device" in the next window. It should all work fine now! If it still doesn't work try selecting "Portable devices" then select "WPD File system device" --> "Microsoft WPD filesystem Volume Driver".
Hope it helps.

Cheers, Mick
