Re: Firmware update download

When I've done a firmware update, I download it onto my computer and then copy it to a memory card to transfer to the camera. I keep the file on my computer in case I need it again, but so far I've never have had to go back to it.

Re: Firmware update download

GRAHAM, MAYBE I DID NOT EXPLAIN IT PROPERLY. WHEN IT HAS BEEN DOWNLOADED TO THE MAC , WHERE DO I COPY IT FROM, TO PUT IT ONTO THE SD CARDREADER ?

WHEN I DOWNLOADED IT, IT HAS GONE ONTO " FINDER " BUT I CAN'T COPY IT ONTO THE SD CARD READER FROM THERE.

I DON'T WANT TO SAVE THE DOWNLOAD, I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHERE TO COPY IT FROM

SORRY, I DID NOT EXPLAIN THIS PROPERLY

I've got my browser set to download into a folder call downloads! Don't know where your browser would put it or if things work differently on a Mac

Re: Firmware update download

GRAHAM, THANK YOU. IT DOES DOWNLOAD TO " DOWNLOADS ", BUT THE ONLY OPTION IT GIVES ME IS, TO OPEN IN FINDER, WHICH DOES NOT GIVE ME THE OPTION TO COPY TO CARD READER.

IT GIVES THE OPTION " BURN TO DISC " BUT NOTHING ABOUT CARD READER

Re: Firmware update download

Must be a Mac thing. Someone who knows will be along soon.

Can you not navigate to the downloads folder from another direction without using finder?

Re: Firmware update download

THANK YOU GRAHAM, IT'S PROBABLY AN EASY THING TO DO IF YOU ARE USED TO IT, BUT I HAVE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE, SO SOMETHING ELSE TO LEARN. IT'S PROBABLY STARING ME IN THE FACE, BUT I CAN'T SEE IT.

THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP

Re: Firmware update download

If it helps, on my windows machines I go to 'computer' where all of the drives and devices are shown as icons, select the one where the downloads folder lives then open the folder. The I see a list of the files in the folder. Right click on the one I want and select copy from the sub menu.

Then I use the same method to find the card which I've either put in the card slot on the machine or in a card reader and then right click in the card and select paste from the sub menu.

Re: Firmware update download

Woody, there is an explanation from Fujifilm here Procedure for Firmware Download on Mac OS.

As you have already downloaded the file, you do not need to open it by clicking on it but just drag it to the base directory of a suitable card (preferably pre-formatted by the camera that you intend to install the firmware upgrade). That should be all you need - insert the card in the camera and go to the option to install the new firmware.

Re: Firmware update download

Glad you got it sorted Woody, the Macs are a bit different for Windows users, I have both and often sit there frustrated when trying to do something 'the windows way'
