Transferring images from camera's internal memory to Mac laptop

Recommended Posts

I've got a Fujifilm X10. I've got important images on my SD card. But the card is a bit eroded on the metal contact points and I can't read the images anywhere EXCEPT on my camera. I want to transfer the images to camera's internal memory, then from camera directly to my Macbook by way of HDMI cable. Connected it the camera to the comp, but can't find the camera or photos on the computer. What do I do now?

I'm not sure that you can transfer from the card to the internal memory and I'm fairly sure that you cannot transfer from the internal memory to a computer. You need to go internal memory to card to computer.

if the photos are important take the card to a data recovery specialist and let them have a go at getting the data off.

 I don't think you can do exactly what you are proposing, but you should be able to plug your camera into your computer and download the images via the camera. On a mac you need to use Image Capture to see your Fuji camera. As far as I recall, Image Capture is software that comes pre-loaded, so you should be able to just find it in your applications folder. All you need to do is plug your camera in and turn it on. It should show up automatically in Image Capture. It may take a second to be recognized. If it is not, just unplug it and plug it back in or turn it on and off. Don't mess with it while it's downloading, but you don't need to be concerned about "ejecting" the camera when you are finished. Just turn it off or unplug it.

Sam, here a small trick when I have a connect problem on my memory cards, sim cards and others. Mostly the metal connects are dirty. Do not use fluids to clean them just take a good pencil eraser and rub the dirt off. That should do the work.
