Make sure the camera is on and STORAGE is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have STORAGE highlighted and select OK on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

Olympus SP500 connection problems to Windows 7 via USB port. Software is unable to find an Olympus digital camera on a USB port on your computer.


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 Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I am unable to upload my pictures to my computer. We recently had several viruses on our computer so a lot of things got cleared off in the process of fixing it. Now I cant upload my pics from my camera.


Reinstall the Nikon software and drivers. If those were removed in the de-virusing of your computer that will fix the problem. If not make sure the USB ports are installed and configured.

Wont upload pics


I tend to NOT use the cables that come with my cameras. They are slow, and often incompatible with whatever operating system or other software you have online.

I would simply take out the camera's memory card (XD or SD or whatever it may be,) and buy a $10 USB card reader for that chip format. It's faster, simpler, better, and you don't have to deal with the camera's proprietary software. Hope this helps!

Cannot upload pics from camera to PC


Hi Ray;
Try uninstalling the Fuji software completely, through the Windows control panel. Don't use the supplied software at all. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer. Open "my computer" and note which drives are present. Now plug in the camera (still turned off) to the USB port. Turn the camera power switch on. Wait and see if a new drive icon shows up. It may take a minute or so. If you get a new icon (probably Fuji DSC or similar), you should be able to open the new drive and access the images through the various folders. If not, can you see images on the camera screen (when not connected to computer)? If yes, maybe a bad cable. If no, could be corrupted images on card.

Unable to get pics from camera to computer?


Tell us more about the everything!
You habe connected to USB cable from camera to Computer - Yes?
Switched on the Camera and set to 'Upload - Yes?
If you have installed the software disk- uninstall it and let the Computer sort it- which it can.
Are you using an external card reader- which is preferable to uploading from camera by the way.
Just tell me more.
