Fuji Finepix 50i - can't transfer photos to PC nightmare

    Can anyone please help? On several occasions over the last year I've
    searched Google to try to get to the bottom of this but I've not got

    I have a Fuji Finepix 50i. It attaches to the PC via a cradle. It uses
    Finepix Viewer software. I'm running WinXP.

    This problem has existed since I got the camera but it seems to be
    getting worse. I take the photos and then I put the camera in the
    cradle. I then turn the camera on so that the PC sees it: now there's
    a green light on the cradle. As soon as I highlight any of the photos,
    either via the Finepix Viewer software or in Windows Explorer, though,
    a red light begins to flicker on the cradle above the green one, and
    the software freezes. Sometimes I can manage to transfer the photos in
    Explorer via copy/paste, in small batches of about 3 at a time, but
    when I've been able to do that I've had to faff around for ages before
    the PC has been willing to let me do it. Now I've just tried to t/fer
    the 1 photograph that I took in the Lake District earlier today, but
    the blasted thing just freezes (as described above) each time I try to
    do it.

    Can anyone please help? When this first began I uninstalled and
    reinstalled the software, expecting that to help, but it made no
    difference. About a month ago I spent hours searching for drivers, in
    case I didn't have the most up to date ones, but I coulnd't find
    anything newer. This is now driving me absolutely mad! Please help if
    you can. I wish I'd never bought this **** camera!

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    Don't bother using the Fuji software - un-install it as it's not needed...

    Get yourself a USB/USB2 card reader (SM card?) and use it to copy the images
    to your PC... faster + easier.
