Sony PXW-X70-My Macbook Pro can't seem to see it.....

Can anybody help me.
I'm trying to upgrade my Sony PXW-X70 to 4K.
Before I do this I need to update the firmware to 3.2.
When I click to connect the camera I get a message saying that that Firmware Updater can not find the camera for this update. I've tried switching cables, removing battery/power source.....I'm using a MacBook Pro. 10.14.1
Any ideas?

Thanks
Ian

Sorry for the obvious question, but did you use the USB cable originally supplied? Per Sony, using any other cable does not guarantee success. Have the memory card out, camera on, and try various USB ports on your computer. The LCD will turn off when connected.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for getting back to my post.
I do not have the original cable. I'll try buying another one and see if that fixes the problem.

Thanks
Ian
