Having problems with your Fuji FinePix Z5fd Digital Camera ?

Camera will not connect with Mac

\015 I've plugged the USB into my computer, but it doesn't show up on my desktop & I can't find it anywhere on my computer. The camera, however, recognizes that it is plugged into the USB. My iPhoto is my default program to upload my photos, & it opens immediately when I plug my camera in. But I have no option to upload any files from my camera. It is almost as if my computer recognizes my camera but it's not there. It's driving me crazy.\015

Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your Mac.

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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I have a Panasonic DMC-FX30 camera and an iMac.  The last time I connected the camera to the mac the pictures showed up like usual.  However, I think I disconnected the camera from the mac without dragging the no name icon to the trash.  Now when I connect the camera to the mac, the camera displays the connecting image, but the no name icon does not appear and the pictures do not show up on the mac.

I have a Polaroid digital camera I got in May that came with a PoGo printer. It all works fine, but I've misplaced the manuals, and when I go to import photos to my Mac, I get nothing. I don't know what the correct "mode" is to import, I've never had this problem before with any camera and my Mac, usually it instantly shows as a source. Do the settings for the PoGo printer disable the Mac to connect as a source? If so, what "button" do I push to allow it to be recognized. It's a pink Polaroid, 1

Trouble Connecting I went to upload my pictures onto my MacBook and the camera won't connect. It had been working fine before and I hadn't changed anything. I tried taking out batteries and memory card, switching USB ports, and making sure the camera was set on USB and not the disk setting. What else can I try?I feel like I had this problem before and maybe it had something to do with Rosetta on Macs...could that be it? But I don't know how/where/what to do for that.Thank you,Tia

Plugging in the USB connection between Panasonic Lumix FZ20 and Mac G4 results in immediate computer shutdown. Camera is on and in playback. Battery fully charged. OSX 10.4.11 is installed.
