What camera do you have as all the cameras that I have seen are compatible.

It is not the camera that is Vista compatible, but the software that comes with the camera. Most of the big digital camera makers now supply Vista campatible software with their cameras. Even if you have an older model you can usually download updated drivers for Vista from the manufacturers support pages. I have an older Olympus camera and when my new PC came with Vista, I simply downloaded updated drivers from the Olympus website.

It really depends on how old your camera is.
Tried to find Vista drivers for my scanner but it is 10yrs old and no longer supported.

There is a problem with the Fuji software. Delete the software from your computer and buy one of here (this company is very good)Put your card in it and you will see the photos on screen. Before buying the card reader remove the fujifilm software and try plugging ther camera into a USB slot (you should have the lead). This should also bring up the pics.

its just a usb lead into the camera then into the pc.

Where folk have always come unstuck is loading the supplied software.
The best thing to do is to leave the CD in the box and let Windows do the work.
It can and will.
