My Camera was Workin Fine Until I Pluged it in to the computer Then the Screen Said USB and DSC.And I D'ont know what to do Then it Started Working Again Then when I plugged it in to the computer again it said the same thing.
Re: My Finpix A120 c'ant take pictures any more...
It's supposed to say that. When you plug it in, it says that, then once you are done uploading the photos and you eject the USB chord, those words will go away and you just turn off your camera and then turn it back on to take more photos.

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 such as Picasa.
You will need to check your manual for download instructions not all cameras are the same however, if you have the camera software installed try following this work flow. First make sure your camera has enough power to complete the download, turn off the camera plug the USB cable into the USB port on the computer then the mini USB on the camera. If you have been turning the camera on this may be part of the problem a lot of cameras use the playback button to transfer pictures from the camera to the computer. Diagram of play back button
Okay I haven't looked into the owners manual on this camera but a lot of downloads from camera to computer require a specific work flow. Most common is to have the camera off while plugging in the USB cable to computer and camera. Then for a long second and the camera starts up in a transfer mode to the FinPix software or viewer.
A go around to all this is to purchase a memory card reader which the computer looks at as an external Hard Drive
This post is 10 months old I hope you have solved the problem, if not what I first expect is the memory card is full and the camera has defaulted to internal memory and it is also full. I would suggest downloading your pictures to the computer
are you connecting to the same USB slot you use to connect before?
Check from the BIOS of your computer is USB port is enabled.
or go to My computer then right click, choose Properties, then select Hardware > Device Manager. Look for the Universal Serials Bus Controllers, then expand. Find the usb port right click on it> select disable.
I found an online manual for your camera. Page 84 talks about the USB Mode Normal with the 4 dots underneath. It also show a troubleshooting area for this and it is on page 96. Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW1.pdf
Try looking at http://www.fujifilm.ca/x3719.xml for firmware or software updates as well as new drivers for your camera. If you are using an upgraded XD card try putting the original back in.
Then follow the directions for doing the updates to use your new card. If all else fails time for a new camera.
Good luck and have a great summer.
