A friend bought a Fuji Finepix Z602 Zoom camera second hand with no software, he has a laptop running Windows XP. When he connects the camera to the laptop with the USB cable nothing happens.
We downloaded the drivers from the Fuji site (even though they say we shouldn't need them for Windows XP) but still nothing happens.
When I say nothing happens I mean the pop-up asking how you want to view the files doesn't appear, nor does the device show up in Explorer.
We tried on my laptop and it was fine, straight off. Connect the camera through the USB cable, turn the camera on, the pop-up appears and the camera shows up as a 'Mass Storage Device' in explorer. We can then remove the photo's no problem.
Any idea's why this doesn't work on my friends computer? Can this functionality be disabled somehow?
If the camera uses a memory card buy a USB card reader which will read that type of card, insert the card into the reader and transfer to wherever you want on your PC. Saves a lot of bother, particularly with the camera powering down during transfer.
