    I have a macbook pro and when i try and connect my Fujifilm A850 camera to it, a light blinks green rapidly, with the screen being grey and reading USB. But the camera doesn't appear to be connected to the computer as a drive and doesn't appear when iPhoto is open. When i connect it to my dad's iMac however, it works fine.

    Any ideas about why this might be?

    As almost always, more information is needed.

    What Mac OS X version and what iPhoto version are on the MBP and on the iMac?

    Was there any software (drivers) coming with the camera?

    Have you taken a look at the support page from Fujifilm?

    Each brand of digicam requires a different setting to enable communications with a computer. Do you have your camera set properly?

    Camera is set properly. It used to work with this computer when it was on Leopard and iPhoto 09 but then i installed Snow Leopard and whenever I've tried plugging it in after then it has done exactly what it's doing now. iMac is on Leopard and iPhoto 09. So maybe it's a leopard problem?

    I had the same problem with my Fujifilm Z30 on my MacBook (wouldn't show up on Image Capture, iPhoto or even the bundled software), and I noticed it was because I was storing the photos on the camera's memory, rather than an SD card. As soon as I bought an SD card and started to store the photos on there, iPhoto instantly recognised it.
