    I just got a finepix 602Zoom. It works beautifully and there is no problem connecting it to a PC which runs Win98. However with WinXP it recognized the camera once and after that says the USB device has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced.Needless to say the troubleshooter does not solve the problem. Any ideas as to how to fix this? Also I stupidly did not create a restore point before installing the Fuji software.

    Donald,

    I would suggest removing the Fuji software if you have installed it with Win XP, then reconnect the camera and let Win XP do its own thing. XP will find the camera and allow you to download your images via its built in software, give it a try !!

    An alternative would be to invest in a card reader which acts just like an extra drive.
    Much faster than the Fuji transfer software - and quite reasonable pricewise.
    Got mine from 7DayShop.
    Regarding restore point in XP - you should be able to 'roll back' to a date prior to your software installation.

    Thanks again for the help. I think I have found the solution though. Here it is.
    "Click Start, right-click My Computer, then click Properties. The System Properties window will open.
    Click the Hardware tab, then Device Manager. The Device Manager window will open.
    Double-click the Universal Serial Bus controller branch to expand it.
    Right-click USB Root Hub, then click Properties. The USB Root Hub Properties window will open.
    Click the Power Management tab.
    Remove the check from the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box.
    Click OK, and close USB Root Hub Properties window.
    Close any other open windows.
    wer saving option for usb devices."
    Hope someone else finds this useful
