I loaded software onto computer (Windows XP SP2) and hooked up camera but it wouldn't recognize the camera. it said "new hardware found" but took me to the new hardware wizard, looked for some files from disk and then gave me a "cyclic redundancy check" error. I thought that i was missing the driver (though I shouldn't be missing it with XP) and I couldn't even find it on the disk to manually install. little help? thanks.

Re: computer doesn't recognize camera
Remove previous all installation/ file if any.Insert the Driver CD in the CD ROM again a wizard interface would be active, from that wizard complete the installation by clicking Next - Next. Do not plug the camera before fresh installation complete. If wizard ask to plug your camera, then plug it.

use another computer to download SP2 onto CD or a USB drive, then copy onto your XP SP1, it will provide more dirvers. Be sure and remove the modem before you start all of this. And also look at Computer, Drivers and uninstall any drivers for your modem model. Install SP2 and do windows update. I would also recommend after this to get SP3.
Last step if Windows doesn't have the driver is to get the driver from the manufactures website. Some modems have specific PC software beyond the driver to use it.
If you have a computer with Windows XP SP2 or Windows VISTA, it should recognize the camera when connected via USB cable. If the computer doesn't recognize the camera and prompt you for a choice, go to "My Computer" and look for either your camera or a newly named drive. Once found, double click on it until you see your photos. These can then be copied and pasted into a new folder or uploaded (saved).
I have to ask 1st, why are you connecting your camera direct? Is it to download your pictures? Anyway it should'nt matter. Did you download the Nikon Transfer and or ViewNX CD that the camera came with? If not, that may be the cause. Another thing is your computer operating system being Vist and or XP with or without SP2 and if Mac it should be 10.3.9, 10.4.11 or 10.5.2
you may need windows xp sp2 because I had the same problem and I had to install windows xp sp2 because with sp3 which I had at the time I purchased the device it did not want to work. It is said in the manual that you need windows sp2 for it to work and be recognized.
I don't know why this wouldn't work on Vista HP, but this excerpt from the manual suggests that your XP SP1 Pro would not work without the SP2 rollup:
"Please perform the following upgrades before connecting the camera to a computer. -Upgrade Windows XP to SP2. Install Windows XP SP2. -Install Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version. Download Windows Messenger 5.0 or later version, and install it. -If using MSN Messenger, please install MSN Messenger 7.0 or later version."
Perhaps if you are following the steps exactly in the manual and it still does not work, upgrading Messenger will magically help.
In XP SP2 you should have just plugged in the device to a USB port and XP probably would have picked it up and recognized it as a drive and all would be as simple as you probably expected. I as a rule don't use the third party software provided with USB devices because of issues as you are experiencing. It could be that the Imagemixer 3 software was for pre XP SP2 Operating Systems and XP is conflicting. The fix could be as simple as using a third party uninstaller such as Your Uninstaller 2006, or 2008 to completely uninstall the Imagemixer S/W and letting XP detect and configure your device as posted above. I hope this helps, and Good Luck.
Try uninstalling the Fuji software completely, through the Windows control panel. Don't use the supplied software at all. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer. Open "my computer" and note which drives are present. Now plug in the camera (still turned off) to the USB port. Turn the camera power switch on. Wait and see if a new drive icon shows up. It may take a minute or so. If you get a new icon (probably Fuji DSC or similar), you should be able to open the new drive and access the images through the various folders. If not, can you see images on the camera screen (when not connected to computer)? If yes, maybe a bad cable. If no, could be corrupted images on card.
