It depends on where the slow-down is occuring. 1) Use a wired connection instead of a wireless connection. 2) Try directly connecting your computer to your modem (cable or DSL) instead of sharing the network with other computers through a router if a wired network. 3) Upgrade to gigabit networking if you have 10/100 (chose one with support for large chunks of data).

Use a service that tests the download speed ( ) to find your connection bottleneck. If you have cable broadband, you may need to find a download time when other users aren't very active on your loop.

I hope this helps.

Download has to be faster

Download speeds depend on the service you pay for from your internet provider. Some downloads may be quicker or faster depending on the connection between your computer and the server the file is coming from.
There are no settings we can help you change that will alter your download speeds. Please contact your internet provider for faster internet packages / service.

My internet and pc is wprking very slow

Try the following:
Go to and search for a program called Ccleaner. Download and install this program, when you run it, it will clean out a lot of unnecessary files on your computer (internet cache/cookies/history files/etc) it also will clean areas like your temp directory, any unnecessary log files, temp files for any other installed programs, etc.
This program is also great for uninstalling unwanted programs and checking the registry for errors and fixing them. I personally uncheck all install options except having a desktop short cut and checking for updates to make the install quicker.
It's a neat little program and is free as well.

Dont have cd

1. Select operating system
It will give you the download link.
I suggest you to select 3th or 4th driver for download.
3th smaller file and it will download quicker, will have basic printer features.
with 4th you will have all printer features, but driver download will take longer (depends on your internet speed)

Cannot copy from finepix s6500 to my computer

Are you using a USB card reader. If not you should get one.
It's quicker than using cable to transfer files, and they are getting cheaper. Just make sure you get one that reads XD cards.

Use a computer to rip your CD's Then copy them to a memory stick. Then you can plug the memory stick in and copy the files to the hard drive that way. Each files takes about 5-10 seconds. Hope that helps
