Question about Fuji FinePix S5200 / S5600 Digital 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 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.

SOURCE: Card not initialised
You can recover the missing pics off your card get, there are some image recovery
programs available on the net and most camera shops will offer a card
recovery service but dont format before you get pics recovered.
Not formatting a card is bad. They need to be formatted on a regular basis because deleting images from card does not remove them and the next image taken only overwrites the old ones.

It may be easier to get a card reader. They transfer much faster and you do not need to use the camera batteries. They are very inexpensive on Ebay and Amazon now.

Hi I am vortash .. check for damage on your download lead and around the camera plug interface .. check that the drivers are still installed and reinstall them to make sure ... if you have a sd card installed remove it as it may be lose in the socket and the camera is trying to read it and can't .. check your batteries are ok .. try it on another computer .. if all this fails sounds like the camera interface has broken constant plugging in and out can sometimes cause problems with a loose plug .. hope tthis helps Regards Vortash

SOURCE: Downloading pictures to computer
Did you disable the autorun on your computer? Is operating system detecting the cam/card as removable disk? Which program is downloading the pictures? (Check the program options)

I assume you're following the instructions in the manual. If so, search your computer for connected drives - in Windows, just (double) click on 'My Computer'. If the camera is connected, it will show up as if it's just another drive.
Open it - double click on it - then each folder in turn until a bunch of picture files show up. Copy and paste that last folder to your hard disk and open the files in the usual way, with your ordinary picture viewer, not the Fuji software.
If the camera doesn't show up, remove the memory card and use a USB card reader - preferably borrowed - just as if it's the camera, as described above.
If that doesn't get your pictures onto the computer, you have either a camera or USB problem and it's time to get professional help.
If you are able to get your pics. downloaded, rename the copied folder on your hard drive, select all the files on the camera/card - NOT the folders - and delete them. You now have a useable, empty memory card and all your pics in a meaningfully-named folder on your computer, and you're back in business.
For my money, the Finepix software is rubbish, anyway - and a card reader is usually quicker to download and doesn't use up your batteries! Fuji's support site should be able to help you get back in business when you have time to research/e-mail them, though.
