Windows XP Media Type Digital Camera Issue

We have our own php / mysql software systems which upload photos from cameras and memory cards by scanning the letter drives in windows XP from drive D onwards.

The older model of cameras when plugged in using the standard mini USB lead used to be recognizes as a drive letter device.

The latest cameras from Fuji we are using are the Finepix S6500 which includes built in software on the camera telling Windows XP that the camera is a specific media camera and not a letter drive, therefore Windows XP now threats them as a media type such as it would do with a scanner or printer (Image provided as an example)

To get round this, we have been removing the memory card from the camera to plug into a memory card reader and uploading from there as a letter drive.

The problem is that by using the memory card, quite often images get corrupted with dirt and scratches on the metal contact strips on the memory card.

We need a solution, so that windows can recognize the camera as a drive letter again instead of a camera media device, when plugging in the camera using the USB lead again. We need the device to be shown as a letter drive again.

Can you help?

With regard to the budget, I am unsure as to the work involved in something like this therefore, if you have the solution, but feel it would be more money / hours to solve, please write to me to that effective.

Kind regards Jon Skinner

I had a similar problem with a Kodak camera. My solution doesn't actually assign a drive letter to the camera, but it does make the pictures available in a fixed location on the computer so that a piece of software cou More
