Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera ?

"Communication Error" when trying to upload photos

\015 I've had my camera since December, and this is the first time this problem has happened:\015\012\015\012After I've plugged in the USB cord into the port and turned on the camera, the white USB screen comes up for a few seconds. Then it says "Communication Error!" and a red exclamation point appears. I have NO clue what is causing this. The last time I uploaded photos was yesterday and everything was fine...can anyone help me figure this out?\015

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.
