I'm sure that when I've connected my digicam to XP Home a wizard pops up and asks me what I want to do. Use Fuji software or XP's own. HTH TR

If you have trouble getting pics on direct from the camera you could get a USB card reader. I would guess a Fuji camera of that age uses Smartmedia cards? Take the card out of camera and insert into a card reader, and the wizard TommyRed mentioned should start automatically with XP Home

Just looked at Jester2K II link, maybe I'm wrong, and the camera doesn't have a removable memory card??

Do you have the cable (USB) to connect it, if so connect to a USB port THEN switch the camera on, with my camera on the DSC setting (where you can view the images you've taken) and see if the wizard comes on, it's gotta be worth a try. HTH TR

I got Fuji Finepix and use XP's Wizard. I've not bothered loading up Fuji Software as XP does a good job of getting my pics onto my hard drive. If for some reason the wizard doesn't detect your camera then a USB card reader should work fine. I've got a USB smart media card reader. As soon as I place a card in it XP's wizard kicks in, and transferring pics over is simple.
