For some reason, my system dumped the driver for my Fuji 3800 camera and now I can't reinstall. I have an HP a6177c running vista premium. I used to be able to use the camera as a webcam and download picture, but now I can't do either

Re: System won't recognize Fuji 3800
Hey ar2by3, You could try restoring your computer back to a date when the drivers were working. I of course am assuming you have the driver disc that should have come with the camera. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.
Have you tried transfer to computer using a card reader ? If not transferring directly from camera it is more than likely the Fuji drivers are not correctly installed remove drivers and reinstall (check for correct drivers PC or Mac) Have you tried on another laptop? I would say it is more than likely a software problem. If still not working send details of you computer operating system and camera model number please.
All the drivers you need are pre-loaded within the Windows XP operating system. Just plug the camera in the any USB port (with the power OFF), turn the camera to ON, and Windows should recognize the camera as a new drive.
You may need to get the new WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) drivers. When you connect a digital camera to any laptop that runs WinXP, the OSmay not recognize the camera. If you download and install new drivers from the Web site, you receive the following error message when WinXP tries to detect the camera: "Windows image acquisition service error system cannot find file specified ‘imaging'." To fix this problem, you must first remove all current related camera drivers and reinstall the updated drivers.
If the removable disk does not appear when you open "My Computer" in Windows, it is possible that the USB drivers are not installed correctly.
Update to the latest version of FinePix Viewer (including the USB drivers). To update FinePix Viewer, you must have the software from the CD-ROM bundled with the product (Utilities for FinePix) already installed.
As an alternative method to updating the software, you can also reinstall the USB drivers. The USB drivers can be reinstalled by installing the software from the CD-ROM again.
If the removable disk is still not displayed after the above measures have been taken, check the following:
Windows system checks
1. You should be using Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
2. The Windows XP USB drivers are supported as standard system drivers but are only compatible with Software for FinePix versions 2.0 or later. If you are using an earlier version of the CD-ROM, an update to FinePix Viewer is required.
3. The software cannot be installed properly from "Scanners and Cameras" in the Control Panel.
Digital camera checks
1. Check that the digital camera can play back images on its LCD monitor.
2. On digital cameras with the PC Camera function, select "DSC" as the USB setting. (Refer to the Owner's Manual for your camera for information on specifying the camera settings.)
