I have had issues with the Fuji software, on MAC OS X, it did work but very slowly and produced very large TIFF files. I subsequently searched for an answer and found GraphicConvertor which is cheap and converts/displays all sorts of formats. It worked fine and fast. I also use GIMP in the MAC environment and found RAWPHOTO, a GIMP plug-in which uses dcraw to read the files. Basically GIMP uses RAWPHOTO, which in turn uses dcraw, so you need all three. I've written to the authors to find out whether I can do this on the MAC, so it's not a definite option yet but if it works it should be great. I hope this gives you some ideas!

s7raw (http://www.geocities.co.jp/SiliconValley-PaloAlto/9919/s7raw.html) should let you work with and convert your Fuji RAW files.

I don't know if you're on Windows or Mac OS X. So assuming you're on a Macintosh computer...(that's what I'm on)
I've noticed that Fuji FinePix viewer has the Raw File Converter LE software t hat's built-in that converts really good quality but is painfully slow. A 512MB xD Card full of 45 RAF files will take a good while to convert. However, It can batch convert all your RAF files, which is nice.
That being said...I do like GraphicConverterX and it's ability to work with our camera...but sometimes the whitepoint is off. You may find that you have to work on your white balance settings.
Now... there is a program you can find at Version Tracker called RAW Developer 1.4.3. Here's the URL at VersionTracker.com (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/28679). It is fast, nice interface and works very, very well with our camera (FinePix x5200/5600) but is a little bit pricey at $99.00. :rolleyes:
