Re: No programs available to use in the program box!!
F47fd is PTP Camera, actually you can download your photos without using any software.
1. connect your camer to you computer and turn the camera on, you will see "USB" on your camera screen
2. Double click on "my computer", you will find a camera icon on your screen may called finepix F47fd
3.Double click on that icon, your photos will be in there.

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.
Whether you connect via USB or use a card reader, you can also use any photo cataloging program. iPhoto comes with Macs, Windows Photo Gallery comes with Windows. There are additional programs available, such as the free Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
It's not practical to give full instructions on an email. Check the instruction manual for details.
Basically, you must install the drivers and program software in to the computer. When you connect the camera the computer will know the camera is present and establish a connection to it. You simply follow the prompts.
Most cameras come with PC based software and drivers. You will have to contact the camera manufacture to obtain the Mac software if it is available for your model of camera.
You may have accidently removed the photo programs you were using. Check to see if the software programs are indeed still on your computer by searching by name. If it or they are there , open one of the programs before you connect the camera and it should automatically download.
If they have been removed use the disc that came with your camera to reload the software program.
Delete the program. Go to Program files and delete any remaining trace files. Empty recycle bin. Reboot PC. Re-install CD program. If this fails to rectify problem then check on their website for any updates to help the program and download them. Reboot. If this fails then check if you have any other editing suite programs that could interfere or supercede the program you're using when connecting your camera. If this fails, don't bother using the software on the CD at all as your PC should pick up your camera files via the USB as long as it has been properly updated. Then use Photoshop/or another program to edit your pics.
Hi, does your pc have a photo program, this should detect the camera connection. If not there are various free programs available on the internet, I use Picasa2 you get this on google. Download this & then connect your camera it will do the rest.
Does it connect to the PC via a USB cable? Then try connecting to a different USB port or if you have try a new USB cable. I had the same problem with my IXUS 400 and changing to a new USB port, directly to the PC - not a USB hub, it worked. However now I have several issues with my camera - no sound or image on the LCD screen, but I think these are unrelated.
