    Have you considered 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.

My Olympus FE-360 camera is dead. I only have the USB chord I use to upload pictures. Is that supposed to charge it? If it isn't charging it does that mean I need a new battery? I haven't used this camera...


No, the USB cord will not charge the battery. If anything it will drain it faster since the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

You need to use the supplied LI-41C battery charger.

Another way is to purchase a USB memory card reader, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the USB card reader. Then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of your computer, the computer will see it as an external memory card. You can view the contents of the memory card and copy the photo files to the computer.

My computer is not showing when my camera is plugged in


Make sure the camera is turned on, plug the USB cable into your PC first, then into the camera, wait for a beep from your PC to show it has recognized the hookup, then go to "My Computer" and look for the Fuji icon. Don't unplug the camera anytime the lights are flashing on it.
