Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S5700 Digital Camera ?

USB COMMUNICATION ERROR!

\015 When I connect my new Finepix J100 to my Mac (OS 10.4.11) nothing happens on the computer and the camera LCD reads "COMMUNICATION ERROR!" I have tried reinstalling Finepix Viewer (v.3.6.1E) and restarting my mac but this hasn't helped. I've also tried several USB slots but all work fine. Please help as I have no way to retrieve my photos!\015

Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as iPhoto.
