Question about Fuji FinePix A500 Digital Camera
I keep getting the "Camera is busy or not connected" message when trying to upload pics to my PC. If I disconnect the cable and turn on the camera, I get a low battery flash even though the batteries are brand new. Any suggestions? This has been a trouble free camera for a year now and this is really frustrating!
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 or FireWire). 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 cataloging program such as Picasa.

It is possible that the batteries are dead (they might be faulty or too old) even when they are out of the package, though unlikely. Try another set of batteries, and if these don't work, you'll probably have to send it for a checkup.

SOURCE: camera won't turn on
Either your camera board is dead, or you are not using the right batteries. There are 2 types of AA batteries on the market today. One type is the normal 1.5V batteries. The other is the special lithium batteries that run a slightly higher voltage, usually about 2V. Many camera owners do not know this fact.

You may have switched USB mode to Pictbridge by mistake.
Press Menu/OK, select Setup, choose USB mode (on 3rd page) switch from Pictbridge to DSC, press OK.
