I took a bunch of photos for the first time with my new FinePix A600 but I cannot download them. I can scroll through then fine on the camera. On the WinXP pc the USB sees the device as "FUJI USB-DirveUnit..." but I cannot browse the photos on the pc and FinePixViewer doesn't see anything. Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong ?

Re: Can't download pictures
One way to solve these is to get a usb card reader. That will eliminate
problems with camera drivers, and programs to download from cameras.
Also, you can use a card reader for many cameras, and no need to use drivers for each camera.
You can edit and save files on cds or dvds after your editing. I do not
use camera drivers and programs any more unless I really have to. For
one thing, I have many cameras I am using and working on, and it does
not make sense any more to install software and drivers for every

I'm curious....the camera came out in 2006....how did you buy a second one?...and more importantly, why? If something doesn't work, the first thing people do isn't to go out and buy another one. Anyway, from your description, the problem seems to lie with the cards, not the camera. All memory cards must be formatted (sometimes called "initialized") in the camera before use and regularly after downloading the pics to the computer. This erases the card and brings it back to original condition so download any pics you want to save using a separate cardreader if necessary and then, format/initialize them in the camera.Also, how old are these cards?....they don't last forever.
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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.
I had this problem w/ my canon. It is a cracked LCD screen. I took the camera apart and replaced the LCD screen. I ordered the new one for $50 including shipping. you may have to do some detective work to find the part you need. I used a screwdriver for eyeglasses.
