I am running Windows XP. My computer is not "seeing" my digital camera. Whenever I try to upload, nothing happens. It used to work fine; Picture Project would launch automatically, when I plugged my camera into the USB port. One day, it just quit working. I ran troubleshooting on my USB port. It works fine. Whenever, I go to Windows Explorer, it is not recognizing that anything is plugged in. If my son plugs in his IPOD, the computer recognizes it. I uninstalled and re-installed Picture Project, NOTHING. If I launch Picture Project and go to Tranfer; it reads "Not Connected". I installed Nikon View, launched it manually, went to transfer, it reads "Camera that is connected has no memory card." ...but it does. Also, when my husband took it to work, it uploaded fine on his computer.
So, I tried to think, "what have i done lately that could change this?" The only thing is my son loaded Apple IPOD software. I tried to uninstall just to try that out, but am unable to uninstall the Apple Software. It reads "cannot delete ipodservice.exe access is denied".
One thing that I noticed is the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon that pops up when I plug in to the USB. If i double click on that...it DOES recognize my camera being plugged in. So I was thinking that was the problem, because I think I recently acquired that on a Windows Auto Update. I was thinking it is blocking me. My husband claims he has that on his computer at work and it does not hinder uploads for him. However, I still think that has something to do with it, but have found no way to uninstall that.
Can anyone help? Once again, my batteries are good, my memory card is good, my cable is good, my USB port is good...but I cannot upload my pictures. My computer does not recognize that anything is plugged in...only the Safely Remove Hardware device sees my camera.

Re: Can't upload pics; computer not "seeing" camera
The key to getting back to "It used to work fine;" is to make Windows "GO BACK IN TIME" to that moment when it last "It used to work fine;" occurred. How to do that. Try to pinpoint the exact date that it started acting badly. Now do this: START-ALL PROGRAMS-ACCESSORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS-SYSTEM RESTORE. I'm hoping you actually have RESTORE utility turned on...Now select the restore date BEFORE it quit working. DONE! Windows will run as it used to run when all worked well. I use RESTORE all the time and I have 100% success rate!

Try going to their website for a driver update. I know that my old Sony camcorder won't work under vista, have to use the old computer with xp. You might have to find an xp model to work with. Maybe if you took out the chip and put it into the computer it would download the photos, never tried it but it could work. Hope it helped a bit.
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.
The section: [Manufacturer] ;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon ;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson remove this semicolon=>;%MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus
Must become: [Manufacturer] ;%MfgNikon%=ModelsNikon ;%MfgEpson%=ModelsEpson %MfgOlympus%=ModelsOlympus
The section: [ModelsOlympus] remove this semicolon=>;%USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100 must become: [ModelsOlympus] %USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100.Device%=Olympus, USB\VID_07B4&PID_0100
After this, if you have already the Olympus C-xxxx in your Device Manager, uninstall it and run again the new hardware wizard. Let Windows XP find the correct driver. Windows will attempt to frighten you with a catastrophe prophecy. Just ignore it and go on (it works perfectly). You're done. Now your Windows XP will see your Olympus C-XXXX Zoom without any additional software.
you can download the software from some of the available following links ...
if you are using WINDOWS XP then you can transfer photos to PC easily with out any software... you can go to the windows movie maker and try ... your digital camera will be automatically detected in windows XP i think...
Take it back and get him a different camera, I hate to tell you that those special pics may never be recovered. I have been looking for help everywhere for this crappy cam and the pics are so bad you can't hardly see anything even in good light. I still have not gotten the software to work at all. It is junk and they need to get them off the shelves I paid 35.00 for my son's and it isn't worth one penny! Sorry that you lost out on such a important historical moment hope you used your camera too.
Good Luck. Mia
Try uninstalling the Fuji software completely, through the Windows control panel. Don't use the supplied software at all. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer. Open "my computer" and note which drives are present. Now plug in the camera (still turned off) to the USB port. Turn the camera power switch on. Wait and see if a new drive icon shows up. It may take a minute or so. If you get a new icon (probably Fuji DSC or similar), you should be able to open the new drive and access the images through the various folders. If not, can you see images on the camera screen (when not connected to computer)? If yes, maybe a bad cable. If no, could be corrupted images on card.
