Vista (or xp?)Driver 4 finepix 4800z web cam

  1. Hi,

    I'd like to use my finepix 4800z as a web cam with Vista, when I plug (usb) the camera, I can transfer files, but if I switch the camera in the pc cam mode, windows vista can't find any pc camera driver.
    I can't find any driver on the web about that.

    can anyone help please!

    I wonder if I need to install the finepix viewer in order to have the camera recognized? I don't want to install this soft, I don't need it. I remember that I somehow manage to use it on my previous computer without having to install finepix viewer.
    Also, my original cd for thw camera is far away : /-

    help please...

    Go to the Fuji Film website and see if you can find the Vista compatible driver for your camera model. When I looked I only saw drivers up to XP but not Vista.

    Dear Customer,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    The camera cannot be used as a webcam on Vista.
