Consider 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.

Why am I suddenly unable to download most pics directly?


Hello,
If you want to download images from any site that forbids Right-Click option, or doesn't allow downloading pictures, try this Firefox option:
Go to 9gag.com, then click Tools on the top of the screen and then click on Page Info, and then open the Media tab. There will be the list of all images on the page, so just pic the one you want to download and below the preview you'll see the Save As... button.

'USB Over Current Notice' unable now to download photos to computer


This is usually because the USB cable is shorting. Looks like an issue with the internals of the camera

Unable to view pics


Copy the existing photos on to your PC, switch off the camera. Remove the SD card and format the SD-card using a SD-card reader, this will clear all the card contents. Now try using it in your Camera again. Ideally, you should be able to save photos on this SD card. Other way would be to insert another SD card into your camera and click photos and check whether those photos are being saved into the SD card(this can be done using display option in your digicam.)

Xd downloads for the fuji S7000


May sound naive to you, but sometimes, particularly in XD card, when it is not being read by a card reader or camera, just try to wipe it's Copper plates firmly with your thumb and try again. Repeat the process. It happened with me and i tried it accidently once, and it worked, and it has worked many times. Don't scratch the copper plates, just wipe with ur thumb. Hope it works for you too. Good Luck.
