Hi all,

I am new to this forum and I have just bought a FinePix S5200.

I am running WIndows XP and I have no other issues with t computer.



I keep getting a error message:

F:\ is not accessible

The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error



I have looked all over the internet for solutions, downloaded the newest drivers and also tried the autoplay.exe and nothing seems to work. I downloadedFuji's software that came with the camera and then like it says, connected the camera AFTER installing the software. I am running out of ideas and fuji says it's not their problem and that the camera is functioning properly, in which I agree. PLEASE HELP I AM AT MY WITS END !!!

Thanks for any and all replies, Duane

Check that your camera is NOT in a PICTBRIDGE mode (MENU -> SET-UP -> USB MODE -> DSC mode).

Yes, it appears that your USB mode has been changed. Something else you might consider would be to get a card reader. You simply plug it into one of your USB ports and insert the card. With Windows XP there are no drivers or any other installation required. Very sample and straightforward.

I apologize in advance for asking dumb questions, but just in case:

Is there a card in the camera? Does it have images on it?
Are you switching the camera to the proper switch position?
Have you been able to successfully download images in the past?
Are you able to review the pictures in the camera?

Actually, Win XP doesn't need ANY special driver to recognize a storage device such as a Fuji camera with a memory card inside. Check the connections and try to connect it to another USB port (preferably not to an USB hub) on your computer and switch your camera into playback mode. Your computer has to recognize a new mass storage device and install the appropriate driver for it. Does the indicator lamp blinking when you connect your camera to your PC and what appears on the camera's LCD?

dude,

When you have your camera plugged into a USB port on a computer running XP, shortly after you turn the camera on (about 3 seconds), you should get a popup window asking you, "What do you want windows to do?" If you have the Fuji software installed, the popup window will be titled, "FinePix (letter of drive)". The window will give you several different options. The LCD on your camera should say, "USB".

If you don't get the popup window, your computer is not recognizing the USB port. If your camera doesn't say "USB", it's a camera problem.

Double click on "My Computer"...is there a new drive letter listed? Does it say "FinePix (letter of drive)"? If it does, you can upload your pictures this way. If not, try a different USB port on your computer.

If that doesn't work, try plugging your camera into another computer - one that you know works with another camera. If your camera works there, it's a problem with your computer.

In most cases, the problem is with the computer, not the camera.

Just A thought. Is your USB port 2.0 or 1.1? Is the s5200 1.1 our 2.0?

If the camera is 2.0 and the computer is 1.1 there is yourproblem.
