    I just bought a Panasonic FZ3 and I want to use the Windows XP Scanner and
    Camera Wizard to download and manage photos from the camera. I haven't been
    able to get this to work. It doesn't seem to recognise the camera.
    I can only download from the camera using the bundled Panasonic software
    which I don't like.
    Has anyone been able to use the Windows XP Scanner and Camera Wizard with
    Panasonic cameras?
    Thanks,
    John

    Can't help with the S&C wizard but I have an FZ3 and I just plug it in and
    XP recognises it is as a logical drive.

    Thanks Tony,

    my computer recognises the FZ3 as a drive ok.
    I also have a Canon Powershot and when I connect that to the computer it
    recognises it as a drive but ALSO loads the Windows Scanner and Camera
    software for downloading the images, rotating and printing etc.

    How long have you had your FZ3? Happy with it? I just got mine yesterday.

    I solved this problem .... I switched the setting in the camera from usb to
    pictbridge and now Windows scanner and camera wizard activates when I
    connect the camera.
    Don't know why this should be, but it works.
