Re: memory card or camera
See if you can borrow another memory card and try it - pretty sure that is the problem.
Also try your card into a different machine with a different card reader - unlikely to help, but if it does then the card is fine and the problem is probably with your card reader (or the cable connection if you are using it).
Also check visually in the memory card slot for anything unusual.
Hope this helps :)

Depends on the type of computer you have.
If your computer has a slot to introduce a memory card, go to start, then computer and bring up the folder where
the desired photos you want to transfer are.
Copy the pictures.
At the "computer window," the memory card should appear.
Right click on it and choose paste.
I you meant to say HOW TO TRANSFER PHOTOS FROM THE CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER, insert the memory card into the computer; the computer should do it automatically, just follow instructions and choose a folder.
If the computer does not allow you to choose a folder, copy the memory card pictures and open a folder where you want to transfer the pictures, right click on the folder and choose paste.
I hope this info will help you.
Also, most newer cameras come with a USB cable, if you have it,
connect the cable to the camera and then the computer.
Download photos from any camera is highly unrecommended because that quickly disharges the camera battery. Instead, turn camera off and then open battery door. See picture memory card at camera edge, push in and release to pop up. Then, draw card out of the slot taking care to avoid finger contact with contacts. Close battery door. No insert card into card reader on computer. (Most computers these days have built in reader. USB interface readers can be purchase at low cost.)
If the upload start up dialog does not auto star, then open Computer and double cick open it there. A menu will appear offering wholesalee import you can chose Review Folders in Explorer. Once opened, photos can be handled and stored ot computer like any other file. It is preferable to copy files as opposed to moving them, using camera itself to delete files. Now close Fuji folder and initiate safe removal. When approved, remove memory card and reinsert in camera. Question answered.
ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card,
then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory
card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB
port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass
Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on
the memory card and copy the photos to your computer.
Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You
can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your
memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any
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.
Pretty cool that the newer computers are coming with an SD card slot. However the computer looks at this as an external hard drive and I don't think the pictures are just going to automatically pop up on the screen. You will need to go find the "drive" click on the folder and open, once you have the pictures open you can select all copy and then create a folder on your computer hard drive and paste the pictures in that. Once the pictures have transferred do a safe eject of the SD "drive" and remove the SD card. Don't forget to do a format to the card once back into the camera.
Here is what I wrote today to another user having a very similar problem:
can access your photos without Easyshare through Start / My
Computer and your card and maybe the camera memory card should appear
there as E: or D: or such volume. Click on those icons and on folders
inside until you see the photos as thumbnail. Save the enclosing folder
by right-click Copy/Paste to a place of your choice.
out the card and put it in an SD card reader and connect that to the
computer and follow the above instructions. Use free Picasa software
instead of Easy Share.
It sounds like the photos are downloaded onto the pc... the access might mean that the memory card is empty. Turn the selector wheel on top of the camera to the mode that you take the photos on and try taking a picture. Make sure the card is in the right way first. Also the next time you download the photos just make a new folder on your desktop and label it photos. Insert the memory card open it and highlight one photo then press cntrl and A ...this will highlight all the photos in the folder then drag them to the new folder it will remove the photos from the card and place them in that folder on your pc. hope this helps
One thing to consider when dragging photos to a memory card for viewing on digital camera, is which folder you are putting them in.
On my sony cyber shot, when I hook it up to remove pictures, I open the memory drive in MY COMPUTER, and are faced with two folders. I ended up having to click into each one to find where the actual photos were, and there were multiple folders within the original folders.
I guess it is just the way the camera organizes the memory card. Anyway, if your experience is similar to mine, and you haven't already done so, I would click down to the exact same folder in the memory card where you find pictures you take with the camera. Drag your computer photos there, and see if they appear.
I suspect that the pictures may be there, but in a different folder on the memory card. If you open your memory card on your computer, you will see several folders. Try opening each folder to see if any images are there. I would also suggest trying another memory card (a new one), take a picture, then upload it to your image software program. Give that a try and let me know if you find your images. Hope that helps!
When you use an SD card in mulitple cameras, each camera creates it's own folder beneath the DCIM folder. I'm not sure if you have a program that automatically opens when you insert the SD card in your reader, but perhaps you can try double clicking on "My Computer" and locating your reader/SD card and opening that folder manually. Once you're there, open the DCIM folder and see if there are multiple folders inside. Open each one to see if you can locate your pictures.
If you have a program that opens automatically when you insert the SD card you'll need to figure out how to tell it to look in other folders.
