I have copied the photographs from the 4 Gb memory card to the computer (170 picture) but now when I insert the memory card back into the camera I receive the message "No valid picture to play" and can only take a photo to built-in memory. The card and camera are new, this is my first attempt to copy pictures to the computer. I think I can reformat the card but will lose the pictures already there, will this get rid of the problem? Would welcome some advice please. Thank you Eileen Scar

Hi, I sure hope you guys can help me out! I am trying to download some pics from my computer onto the 4GB memory card in my Canon Powershot A460, but the camera won't let me. The reason I'm doing this in the first place is because the SD port on my computer suddenly stopped working, so I thought another way to get the pics onto my Scandisk was through plugging my camera into the computer and doing it that way. However it is now telling me that my camera may not support this, is there anything I

Just tried to hook up my camera to my computer and the computer is not recognizing the camera for some reason. Is it possible that the USB cable is bad. I am not getting an error message and we have done this many times without the software installed. We installed the software that comes with it and it wn't allow us to do it either. We just downloaded norton antivirus 2009 to our computer and this is the first time we have tried since doing that. I think the USB cable is bad but it's pretty new.

Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure the problem is caused by sand. The lens at first just went in and out a few time, before the camera turned off. I vacuumed it, then slapped it against the side of my hand whilst turning it on - now it turns on properly with the lens out, but it wont focus - so you can only take blurry photo

My Fuji 1500s 10 Mp camera will now power on when USB cable is connected. As per the upload instructions on the monitor, I am to plus the USB cable into my computer, then into the camera, then power on the camera. At which time the upload to Finepix Viewer should commence.

When I turn the camera on I get the message "memory card error". The only button on the camera which then works is the menu button but it just brings up the screen and then the same error message.
