Sounds like you have corrupted or possibly deleted a Fine Pix Viewer driver software file.

Suggest you uninstall and reinstall Fine Pix Viewer.

Before you start you might want to create a backup folder on your C drive and put copies of all your photo files therein. Make sure your camera is not connected to your PC before reinstalling software.

Assuming Windows operating system click : Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add or Remove Software, then scroll to Fine Pix applications. You will probably have three to choose from. Since you don't know where the problem lies suggest you start with Fine Pix Viewer which will probably have a version such as 5.5 (in my computer anyway). Having highlighted this file click on the uninstall button.

Now reinstall from your Fine Pix CD.

Suggest you reboot so new software will recognise your camera when it is connected. With camera connected Windows will probably advise that there is new hardware and it is seeking software. Give it time and Viewer should boot up on your screen.

My Computer used to recognise my Finepix S8100fd and I could put pics straight into Picassa.
Now I have the Dreaded "Communication error".
As a workaround I took the 4GB SDHC card from the camera and fitted it to my "Cannon ixus 801s" which communicates with picasa perfectly via usb2.
Could I have a faulty usb cable?

My screen is blank (white) and has USB on the upper left corner... i lost my usb cord and it wont let me take pic's or use any of my buttons. What should I do?


Try taking the batteries out for about an hour, put them back in and try it. It seems to be stuck in USB mode which can only happen with a supply voltage of 5 volts coming IN the USB socket. Hopefully that will allow it to turn on in camera mode again.

Garmin starts loading maps, then screen goes blank


First do the master reset -Hold down finger in lower right corner of screen and press switch on button. Hold still until asking of erasing all private data appears. FAST click on YES.

If it doesnt work:
From www.garmin.com -cllick on SUPPORT -> SOFTWARE
Get webupdater and install it. Run it and you'll find button "Find device". Of course you can't because it does restart all the time.

Hold down finger in UPPER LEFT corner of screen and press switch on button. Hold still for about 10 seconds (GARMIN appears and nothing more) and fast connect the USB.
HOLD switch until icon of connected computer appears on the screen. After then device stops resetting.

Webupdater can find your device, and now you can put a new firmware by doing step by step instructions from webupdater.

Charging


No, it will not. The digital camera uses separate AA batteries, and cannot be charged via USB like say a GPS navigator..

Cannot upload pics from camera to PC


Hi Ray;
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.
