Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A500 Digital Camera ?

Computer won't recognize when camera is plugged in

\015 This has stopped working, the cable is fine but I have lost the disc to re install the camera as an option, is there any way around this?\015

Answers :

If you open My Computer, do you see the camera listed under removable devices?
If so, you have some choices:
You can double-click on the camera icon to open a folder to see the files, and copy them to the computer.
If you want to use the camera software to copy the file, right-click on the camera icon and move the mouse over Open with -- your camera software should be there.
To try to get the computer to respond to you plugging in the camera the way it used to, you can right-click on the camera icon, then choose Properties, then Autoplay and choose the program or action to start when it is plugged in.
Hope this helps.
