Fuji Finepix S3500. PC will not recognise / read data via USB cable
When I plug in my camera to the PC via a USB cable, the PC no longer automatically opens the picture downloading software (Casio Photoloader or FinePixViewer); instead I have to open it from the Start menu. Then when I ask it to download pics ai says 'There are no photos to download'.
I have checked the setting on the camera and it is set to USB.
I have tried other USB cables and they don't work either so I don't think its a cable fault.
The PC recognises other USB connected devices so it can't be a PC / USB connection problem.
I have tried re-installing the FinePixViewer software on the PC but no effect.
I have tried installing the FinePixViewer software on another computer but it still doesn't work.
Is there some simple solution that I am overlooking or is the camera banjaxxed and have to go back to the manufacturers?

The partnumber for the cable is
FZ05266-200Maybe this will make it easier to find? Otherwize, concider purchasing an external USB card reader. Make sure it can read all types of XD cards. If it also can read SD/HC cards, you can use it for future cameras as well. A card reader is cheaper than the cable.
instead of using the usb plug that the camera has go to best buy, show them your card, and ask for a card reader what this will do is plug into a usb port, and it will read the data off of the card, completely bypassing the program
I had the same problem with my camera & mac. I got this off the Fuji site and it worked for me:
If images cannot be downloaded from the camera to a Macintosh, check the status of the camera and the Macintosh and resolve the problem accordingly.
1) Check the status of the camera and Macintosh. 1. Connect your camera to the Macintosh and turn the camera on. 2. Open the "Applications" folder on the Macintosh HD. 3. Double-click "Image Capture". * If the "Imaging device not connected" message appears, follow the steps described in [Checking the connection between the camera and PC]. 4. Select "Preferences" from the "Image Capture" menu. 5. The procedure for using the Image Capture Preferences window differs depending on the OS version used. Use the correct procedure for your version of Mac OS. - Mac OS 10.4: Click "General" in the Image Capture Preferences window. - Mac OS 10.3: Click "Camera" in the Image Capture Preferences window. - Mac OS 10.2: Simply proceed to the next step. 6. In "Items launched at camera connection", select "FPVBridge" and then click the [OK] button. * If FPVBridge is not among the displayed items, follow the steps in [Displaying FPVBridge] below. 7. Quit "Image Capture".
If you implement the above procedure up to step 6, FinePix Viewer launches automatically. * To stop FinePix Viewer from launching automatically, follow the steps in [FinePix Viewer Setup] below.
Check your manual- Some models have a separate 'button' battery for date/time functions- there are quite long lived and are on all the time.
If the manual does not reveal - seek out the Technical Support at Fuji
Hi, I always take the memory card out of my camera and use a card reader via the USB port.
This way I am not dependent on the camera having sufficient battery power or having to connect to an AC adaptor.
