Question about Fuji Cameras

When my camera is connected to the computer via usb port it no longer opens the finepix viewer automatically and wil not download the pictures. This appears to be since the comtuter was upgraded to windows 7 from vista. i can still see older pictures previously downloaded.

Windows 7 has native support for many cameras meaning that you no longer have to use the camera software to upload your pictures. As you haven't mentioned which exact model you have I cannot check this for you, but if you enter your camera model number followed by Windows 7 into a search engine you'll easily find the Windows 7 product compatibility page.

Alternatively, Windows 7 now has the excellent Compatibility Wizard. This enables your operating system to "fool" many programs designed to run on older Windows versions into running on Win7; earlier indows versions had compatibility mode as well, but it could be awkward to use and lacked a friendly wizard to guide users along. Alternatively, click upon any of the hotlinks I've provided for you.

If all else fails, then you may need to use an external memory card reader instead. They're cheap and widely available but just make absolutely certain that it can handle the type and capacity of your memory card. In practice, most enthusiastic photographers always use card readers as they completely sidestep the camera manufacturer's own and often clunky software and also you'll find that data transfers are usually far quicker and more reliable. But never use them to reformat your memory card as that should always be done in the camera and for ease of use try to buy one with a eject button. It doesn't normally physically eject the card, but it does ensure that the "safely remove hardware" or drive eject feature in Windows is easier to perform. Pulling a card out without safely removing/ejecting it can corrupt the card causing data loss and even damage to the memory card.

I hope that my answer has been of use, please take a moment to rate my reply.

My computer will not download pictures from my s5700 camera


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). 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 management program such as the Finepix viewer or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

How do i upload pictures from my fiji hs10 to computer? i have loaded software and connected camera via usb port! This does not seem to work, computer doesn't seem to recognise the camera?


Okay I haven't looked into the owners manual on this camera but a lot of downloads from camera to computer require a specific work flow. Most common is to have the camera off while plugging in the USB cable to computer and camera. Then tri3mast_246.jpg for a long second and the camera starts up in a transfer mode to the FinPix software or viewer.

A go around to all this is to purchase a memory card reader which the computer looks at as an external Hard Drive

My new FujiFilm Camera Simply Will Not upload Images.


i figured it out. or rather, my brother did. if you plug it in and everything, nothing on the actually camera will show up, and the finepixviewer or whatever wont open, but all the pictures will now be under your "pictures" folder. you just have to go there and open them.
