Had to grin - this sounds familiar.

Why the pix are buried layers down I don't understand either.
Check your "My Computer" with the camera attached to see if the system sees the storage of it.
It should list it as a "Removable Drive" and (I have a number of drives) assigns 'K' to the camera when it is attached.

If it is shown, double-click on the icon and it should open it without problem.
If it doesn't, you have some lousy driver missing - you may have to reinstall Oly's software.
If it opens there should be a folder shown; my Oly uses DCIM, which, when opened, shows 100OLYMP folder.
This opened shows whatever pix are there.

If nothing works, attach the camera and note that it has established communication with the system, then reboot.
This will often force Blindows to recognize and reinstall missing software ****.

I have a nikon d80 and run windows xp.. I have transferred pictures before by hooking the usb cable from the camera to the laptop...now when I do this, I get the how do I want to transfer box on my screen...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer 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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo management program, such as Picasa.

Hi, the photos are visible in the Camera and not when connected to camera because in Windows the photos are hidden. You can view the hidden files by following below mentioned steps:

Please connect the Camera to the Computer, then open the Folder containing the Photos:

Click on Tools>Folder Options>View tab>select Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives option.

Then, click OK. Now the photos should be visible in Windows.

Please reply me if you face any problem in following the above mentioned steps.

Consider 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.

Finepix J12 cannot upload photos onto computer.


Here's the best solution. Get a card reader for your card (available at Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, etc.) and use it to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can do anything you like with them.

Picture folder won't open


If the DCIM folder is where the camera keeps its images, then you have no images on the card.

Otherwise, have a browse through the memory card for another folder. The folders are named differently depending on your camera. My Pentax keeps them in "DCIM", but Kodak (for example) might keep them in a different folder.

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera
will be recognized automatically as a removable disk when your computer has the following Operating Systems.

For transferring pictures with OS (Windows 98/XP/Vista/2000/MAC 9.2-10.3 ):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied
in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.
