X-Pro 2 USB Connection to MAC doesn't work, How can I find a solution to this.....

Recommended Posts

If you get a pc card reader for your SD cards, you can pull the SD card from the camera, put it in the card reader (which attaches to your computer -  usually via a USB port in your computer) and use your computer’s software to transfer the images.

But I am curious about what you wrote, is the USB port in your camera damaged or is the menu option to set it up for image transfer not showing up?


If you set the pc connection option to USB Card Reader, you should be able to connect your camera to your computer using a USB cable and move the images.

Hi Jerryy,

Thank you for your quick reply and yes I thought about to buy a pc card reader. But I'm also curious why it doesn't work like before, I never had a problem to actually connect my camera to the computer.

So I checked my camera and it's not damaged or anything, looking at the connection setting I only have the 4 first options, those you sent me in the link.

But NO: 

Has there been updates to the camera that I haven't been aware of? Because this one doesn't show up in the menu option.

I haven't used my camera in almost 2 years due to the pandemic. We have sort of been in different locations, locked-up....

Thanks again for your help.

Not having the menu option is a problem, especially when you need to use one or two of them. Here is the link to the firmware updates:


This page also lists an overview of the steps as well as giving you more detailed instructions should you want to see them in step by step listings.

However, since you mention you do not yet have a card reader, getting the update to  your camera will be tricky, because the update is copied to the card and the the card is put back in the camera. Camera Remote App will not work to do this because, if I remember correctly, the X-Pro 2 does not have bluetooth which Camera Remote App needs for the transfer.

So without the card reader things might be tricky. Do you know anyone that has one and will be able to help you?

    • Hi Jerry, thanks so much; I already downloaded Rawtherapee v5.8. But as I am using Mac OS 12.6, probably there is some issue. There is an instruction in their website  '  Drag sh into the “Full Disk Access” pane under the “Privacy” tab in the “Security & Privacy” control panel in “Apple menu” > “System Preferences”. I tried to do but couldn't do it. So I didnt have the access to the photo folder. I already had other raw converter. Are all the data in TIFF kept as same as RAF? then I can edit it in darktable or Lightroom ( I have older version in my different laptop). 
    • My Fujifilm x100v resets the date to january 8 2000  it happens about twice a year. my personal settings rest unaffected.  I use firmware 2.13 is there a solution to this very annoying problem(bug)?    
    • Hey Guys, I am stumped. I am trying to use the Movie setting on my X-T200. I push the camera through an Elgato Cam Link so that my PC can use it. I am currently running into a problem that I turn off the Face/Eye Detection however it will still show the green box and white eye box. I still wish to use the auto focus but I do not need the Boxes present. Does anyone know a fix? Or is there a better setting I can use to allow auto-focus but remove said boxes. I am still new to cameras and do not want to go out and buy a brand new one.   Thanks.
    • Okay a quick follow up to my own post; I tried re installing the firmware on my camera, and the issue seems to have gone away (I had the latest on the camera already, but I re downloaded it and re installed it overwriting the old installation via the instructions on Fujis website). My guess is that maybe the firmware got corrupted during or sometime after my previous install. I will keep tabs on it if it starts doing it again.
    • You might give RawTherapee a try: https://rawtherapee.com Or, if you are using macOS or Windows, Fujifilm has a raw converter based on SilkyPix: https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/products/software/raw-file-converter-ex-powered-by-silkypix/ It give you some options for basic editing and touch-up for your images that you can then export as a tiff and finish in GIMP or your favorite image editor, or as jpg if that is enough.
