Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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.

PC Connection My camera came with ACDSee for Pentax for viewing images etc. When I initially installed it worked great, as soon as the camera was linked to my laptop (Toshiba Satellite Pro running XP), ACDSee device detector would launch automatically, click the steps and photos would download- easy.

Will the battery in my fuji finepix f470 charge when the camera is connected to my laptop (via camera usb used to get the photos) or do I have to use the charger that came with it and plug it into the wall.

Lost pictures I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 that I received for Christmas this year. I just bought a new Gateway Laptop to take on a trip. Up till now, the two have functioned just fine together.
