I accepted the solution... but I''m not sure if i should have waited a little longer
I wanted to see what you might suggest (my original request/problem had to do with the fast shutter on my Canon 20D) - I wasn't sure if I was supposed to accept the solution to get mor imput from you or just wait it out. I went ahead and accepted the solution, but now I think I won't get any more solutions from anyone else.... so I'm not sure if I got a little ahead of myself here - since I still have not found a solution to this.
Let me know if I should repost my problem?

Most camera's, and the Olympus to work the same with auto focus. You place the AF target o the place you want to focus on. (the part that should be in focus in your picture) then press the shutter release button half and wait tip the AF conformation mark lighter up on the view finder. (the little round in on the bottom left) Then frame the picture as you want it shot and press the button complete.
I'm not sure your lens has a AF / MF switch, but that should be on AF all the time.
When you use non AF lenses, your cmarea can't focus automatically.
It should work fine with the kit lens. (lens that was originally delivered with the body)
HI On the back of your camera there is a button that has a little triangle above it. Make sure the memory card is in the camera. Then turn the camera on. Next you will want to push that little button and the pictures you have taken should come up on the screen. Thank you I am glad I could help you today!!
Reload operating disc tha came with the camera with acmera unpluged.Wait 2/3 min. reboot the computer assuming that where you want to downlaod, make sure battery if fully charged reconect the usb and it should a go!
4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.
Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.
CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.
Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.
Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.
Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.
You need to change the flash mode. It sounds like you may have "Flash On" (which seems to be a flash-fill mode) when what you need is "Auto Flash". To change the flash mode, press the flash button, then use the right/left arrows to highlight the right option, then menu/OK to select and save the option. Let me know if you need a link to the user manual for more details.
First, try cleaning the battery contacts with an ink pen type eraser, not a pencil eraser, but one that is made to erase ink. These are a little gritty and usually white, not red rubber. If this does not work, and you are sure they are NEW batteries, not just not used batteries, try to reset the camera to all original defaults. If this fails, the camera may have a faulty internal connection, and need to be repaired or replaced. One last thing to try, IF the camera will accept an external power supply, do you still get the no battery power? If so, this is a sure sign it has an internal failure and needs to be serviced or replaced.
if you are using the original battery, I'd suspect it will no longer accept a charge, based on the age of the camera & battery. A new (but difficult to find) battery is probably the best fix. There are various "off-brand" batteries available for about half the cost of the original Fuji pack.
