Fuji j10 - my mac wont recognise it even using finepix

Just bought a fuji j10 digital camera and when i connect it to my macbook using the included USB cable, it isn't recognised. I have tried using the included finepix viewer software and it still isn't recognised. I do everyhting i'm supposed to: My SD card has been formatted, the camera is in USB mode when connected. It just won't recognise it.

How can i get my photos onto my mc without having to buy a memory card reader?

Many thanks, HKA

    bought this camera, installed the finepix viewer software.

    finepix battery is at full power.

    when i plug in the usb securely into the camera and my computer, the screen goes black and says "USB connected" however my mac cannot find the camera, and the finepix viewer cannot find it either. I am using a macbook, inteel core duo with os 10.4.11

    I have the same exact problem. I even went to the fuji site to down load updated software and nothing. I would hate to return it but I can't a solution.

    Same problem!  My Finepix J10 won't show up on my Macbook Pro, even though it's all connected correctly & I get the USB display on the camera screen.

I had the same problem with my camera & mac.  I got this off the Fuji site and it worked for me:
If images cannot be downloaded from the camera to a Macintosh, check the status of the camera and the Macintosh and resolve the problem accordingly.

1) Check the status of the camera and Macintosh.
1. Connect your camera to the Macintosh and turn the camera on.
2. Open the "Applications" folder on the Macintosh HD.
3. Double-click "Image Capture".
* If the "Imaging device not connected" message appears, follow the steps described in [Checking the connection between the camera and PC].
4. Select "Preferences" from the "Image Capture" menu.
5. The procedure for using the Image Capture Preferences window differs depending on the OS version used. Use the correct procedure for your version of Mac OS.
- Mac OS 10.4: Click "General" in the Image Capture Preferences window.
- Mac OS 10.3: Click "Camera" in the Image Capture Preferences window.
- Mac OS 10.2: Simply proceed to the next step.
6. In "Items launched at camera connection", select "FPVBridge" and then click the [OK] button.
* If FPVBridge is not among the displayed items, follow the steps in [Displaying FPVBridge] below.
7. Quit "Image Capture".

If you implement the above procedure up to step 6, FinePix Viewer launches automatically.
* To stop FinePix Viewer from launching automatically, follow the steps in [FinePix Viewer Setup] below.

My mac wont recognize my Fuji Film camera.

Looks like you may need to use a specific application to see the photos on the camera.
Try using Image Capture and iPhoto (for me it worked in Image Capture after changing the iPhoto preferences to always open Image Capture when camera connected - go figure).

I have windows XP and can't upload photos from my Fuji Finepix J10 on my camera it just says USB.

In order to download photos to your PC or laptop, you have to install the drivers for your camera. Please follow these steps.

1- Use the CD which came with your camera and install the drivers. If you do not have your CD, go to fuji website and download it.

2- After installing the drivers, connect your camera to your computer and on the dial select play and turn the camera on.

3- If the drivers are installed correctely, when you click start, computer you would see an icon with all or part of Fuji FinePix J10 Digital. Double click on this icon. You would see one or more folders which contain the stored pictures or videos. Now you are able to download, copy delete the stored pictures in your camera.
