After a week of moaning about frustration with my new camera, and Fuji not supplying a lead to transfer the photos, I eventually ordered a card reader. In the meantime, I contacted Sandisk for advice about the memory card, and asked friends if they had any ideas. I wrote a blog post about the whole issue of not being able to see the photos, and generally felt pretty hard done by. This evening, I was prompted to look at the charger unit, the one used to connect the camera to a power source to charge the battery.
Guess what? The lead comes out of the unit, and connects the camera to the computer.
How stupid do I feel right now? Pretty stupid, I can tell you.
Look out for a photo post. Coming soon.
