Question about Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera
I've had my camera since December, and this is the first time this problem has happened:
After I've plugged in the USB cord into the port and turned on the camera, the white USB screen comes up for a few seconds. Then it says "Communication Error!" and a red exclamation point appears. I have NO clue what is causing this. The last time I uploaded photos was yesterday and everything was fine...can anyone help me figure this out?
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 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 such as Picasa.

You can go to this website and download the files you need in your computer in order to download the pictures.
The camera comes with a CD, If you don't have this photo share softwares in your computer, you won't be able to download. Also you can take your camera xd or sd card to a store with photo service and have your pictures on a CD. From the CD you can download to the computer.

I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.

You may have switched USB mode to Pictbridge by mistake.
Press Menu/OK, select Setup, choose USB mode (on 3rd page) switch from Pictbridge to DSC, press OK.

This type of problem arises many times,at first they work but the more you use them the terminals tend to loosen up,even if the camera is new.So most of the time my best solution for that is to purchase a multiple memory card reader(usb 2.0).Most don't require any installer,just plug the reader to your computer and slide in any memory card you have and you will be able to upload any media you want.What I have is Ohm USB multi card reader/writer,it has been doing it's job since I got it.
