\015\012\015\012It says it is unable to find a camera connected to the USB ports. Any idea where I could find a driver to help this or is it another problem?

\015\012I had this same problem, I'm using Vista on my HP laptop and I managed to correct it. Apparently HP like to customize Vista and when connecting some USB device's they don't recognise them as what they should. A USB mass storage device. You will need to connect the camera to the computer, the camera will come on then click the ok button so it selects PC. Wait until it finishes its search click cancel and open device manager, scroll down and below Network Adaptors you should see an expandable tree with an yellow exclamation mark named Portable Device's --> FE-280/X820/C520 you will need to right click on the FE-280/X820/C520 icon and select "Update driver software". Then select "Browse my computer for driver software" then select "Let me pick from a list of device driver's on my computer" Scroll down till you see "Universal serial bus controllers" then select "USB Mass storage device" in the next window. It should all work fine now! If it still doesn't work try selecting "Portable devices" then select "WPD File system device" --> "Microsoft WPD filesystem Volume Driver".
Hope it helps.

Cheers, Mick

3inch disks I no longer have my camera. However, I still have all my 3 inch disks that I shot with that camera. I can not get them to play on my computer. Does anyone know if there is a driver, or program that will let me view my disks on my XP computer? When I put them in my drive now, it either tells me that there is no disk in the drive, or it shows a blank disk. Please help! Thanks.
