You don't need any software.


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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Used my "Windows Update" application and ran it-Camera was "plugged in" with my USB cable while I ran the update ( camera was off ). Must have been related to the driver for my Canon. Whatever it was-it fixed it.

SOURCE: Lost my Canon PowerShot A560 disk

As a solution I highly recommend that you forego the old cable to the camera route, and instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are very inexpensive, much much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of headache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

I removed batteries, and now images are gone, can I retrieve them?


Google 'Undelete program photos'. Some are free, some you pay for. The paid ones tend to be better, so it depends how much the missing images mean to you. Put the program on your computer, connect the camera and tell the program to search the hard drive on the camera. It will Undelete any image that hasn't been overwritten.

By using the supplied USB cable, you should be able to drag the images from the camera into your computer. Connect the camera to the computer and open "My Computer". Turn on the camera power. You should soon find an icon which says Fuji Finepix camera (or words to that effect). Open that icon and you should find folders containing more folders, and ultimately, your images. You can then copy/paste, or drag & drop them to your computer.
