Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S3100 Digital Camera ?

I bought a finepix s3100 at a garage sale, it works good and I had to buy the xd card and the usb cable, now what do I need to download pics to my computer? do I need a cd disk program for my computer to recognize my cam?


Answers :

Yes and no depending on your computer operating system. If you have a fairly new computer lets say a PC running windows XP Home or a Mac OS X then no you don't need a CD to download or view your pictures. I'm a little rusty on PC but what I would suggest is making a folder in "My Documents" and title it I uses a date and add some clue of its content. The make sure the camera is off and the computer is on. hook up your USB cable between the computer and the camera and turn on the camera. Before doing the hook up make sure the camera has sufficient power in the batteries. Once you turn the camera on the computer may look at it and flash up a banner "found new device" it may open the camera file on your desk top as an external drive and basically that's what it is. You can then open the file, click on the first picture, then select all, copy then past them in the new folder, should only take a few seconds to download. Once there the PC will have a viewer that is called "Paint" or Explorer will open them as well. If your running a Mac just make a folder and plug the camera in and turn it on, the external drive icon will appear on your desk top, open it as you would to view select copy past. OKAY now on both these PC or Mac you must eject the camera drive don't just unplug it or ether computer and the camera will get very upset with you. You need to eject the camera drive. Great little camera by the way, has a video mode but no sound

My camera is working fine. But yesterday when I put it onto the dock and tried to download pictures onto my computer, I got a message that said: "Cannot get the devise information." I found my Easy Share disk and ran the "repair" program. When that didn't work, I contacted my Norton help line. A gentleman checked out my computer and said all was fine. Still couldn't download pics. He suggested I contact you.
