Question about Fuji Finepix J100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

USB COMMUNICATION ERROR

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!

Received JV100 as gift. I'm trying to copy manual CD into my MAC/OS 10.8 laptop. How do I do it?


Part of the problem might be that the latest Mac laptop is Snow Leopard 10.6. You must have a laptop from the future!! :) Just kidding!. When you insert the cd, it should appear as an icon on your screen. You can right-click and choose "copy" and pick your desktop as the destination. That way, it's handy for reference.

USB COMMUNICATION ERROR!


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.

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.

Communication Error


Try connecting the camera to another computer. Is the camera reading the same error? If not, it's a computer issue.
If the camera is reading the same error, see if there's a way to restore camera back to the factory settings, and try all over again. Good luck :)

Communication error


It would be helpful to know which operating system you have on your iMac. If you are running OS8.6 to OS9.2.2, then you may need to install drivers for the Mac to recognize your camera. If this is not the case, you may new a new connection cable. A work around for this would be to use a memory card reader instead of connecting the camera via a USB cable.
