Default Need Steves help or anyones

Just bought Ulead PhotoImpact 8.0. Connected my Fuji s602 to computer via usb cable, started Impact 8.0 went to file, digital camera, select source (just as manuel says to do) and get this message- cannot find twain data source. Called both Fuji and Ulead, both say the other is the problem . Would love to have some help please. Thanks

Did you install the driver software wot came with the cam? even though you're not going to use it? The Twain drivers are usually associated with scanners, my old cam had Twain drivers - but that connected to an RS232 port!. OK it sounds easier to plug in the cam and start porting files into PI8, but I'm not certain that Twain compliance extends to USB connectivity. I've got PI V7.

I transfer my files to my HD using the Fuji usb drivers, then open the files with PhotoImpact (which I like a lot) for editing. If you are running Win 2k and above, I think the USB file transfer works without the Fuji software. I prefer to treat getting files off a card as an important file operation, like HD filing, I wouldn't want to do that through 3rd party software - even if it seemed more convenient.

Stoney

Right Click on My computer
Click Properties from the Drop Down Menu
Click the Device Manager Tab
Locate the camera
Highlight the camera, then click remove.
Reboot

This will force windows 98 to find your camera again.

Good luck

The USB driver is only good if you want just to read/write to your camera from the PC file systems (ie Widow Explorer)

If you want to open your camera from an application like PhotoImpact, PhotoShop, PictureIt etc, you also need to install the twain drivers... I just debug a Fujitsu documant scanner for a friend and the same thing happened. When you go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager, I bet you the camera is present (just like my friend scanner), but when you try to scan (or open the camera) the application can't find it because the twain driver is missing!

Doing this will only re-install the USB plug-n-play portion!

Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager, your camera is already there... Install the twain driver!
