Fujifilm Finepix S6500FD USB connection problem

Hi. I have a Fujifilm S6500FD and it's giving me a headache because I can't connect it to my computer. I'm trying to connect it with an USB data cable. The computer recognises my camera and everything is fine, but when I want to access my pictures on the camera, it shows me this message:"The computer cannot detect the scanner or camera. Please make sure the device is turned on and is properly connected to the computer."
I tried to install everything to solve this problem, from USB drivers to FinePix Viewer. I also have several USB ports, and I tried them all, but nothing happened.I also tried to connect my camera on several other computers and it worked fine even without the programs required for the camera. So I tried to reinstall my operating system and it showed no improvements. And everything's the same.
Thank you for your help!

SOURCE: fuji j10 - my mac wont recognise it even using finepix

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.

SOURCE: can't get my computer (win xp) to detect my finepix camera

Sounds like there is no connection between your camera and your pc.
Try another USB port on your PC.
You actually do not require a driver for XP.
XP will automatically detect the camera. SP2 + 3
If all fails, get a card reader.

SOURCE: Finepix J12 cannot upload photos onto computer.

Here's the best solution. Get a card reader for your card (available at Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, etc.) and use it to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can do anything you like with them.

Why won't the driver for my fujifilm finepix AX300 install on windows vista?


Consider 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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Fujifilm s6500fd focus error; what a bummer.


In digital photography, the focus error is especially an error message on Fujifilm FinePix digital cameras, usually caused by dirt in the lens mechanism. To avoid any further damage, the camera electronics totally disables the autofocus system and refuses to take any still image. If out of warranty, the repair costs can easily exceed US $100

My pictures won't download off my fujifilm AV190 camera. I downloaded the software that came with the camera but the program doesn't open up when the camera is connected to the computer.


The camera must be off when you first connect the USb cord to the computer. Then turn on the camera. The lcd should show USb mode. It does take time for the software to engage even with a powerful computer.

My Fujifilm S1500 will not connect to my computer. The fine pix program is loaded and the camera will show "usb" on screen when connected, but the program or my computer will not find the camera.


Restart the computer. Connect the camera (switched off) to the computer with the lead, do this directly, not through any USB hubs. Turn the camera on to the 'view pictures' setting. The computer should see it. Check in 'My Computer', it should have added it as a storage drive, and you should be able to access the files directly. I always find this method better than using the Finepix program. Hope this helps.
