Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Not uploading to Mac with USB cable

Usually digital cameras automatically open iPhoto and upload the pictures when plugged in via USB and turned on, though the computer doesn't even recognize the camera.  Tried every USB port on the back of the Mac.  Other digital cameras have worked in the past.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Use a card reader instead of your camera and download to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can import to iphoto.

SOURCE: Sd card won't upload video- 'unidentified image' is displayed

iPhoto is for still pictures. iMovie is for videos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can import to iMovie or just play them using Quicktime.

Testimonial: "Spot on... problem sorted. It seems iphoto is happy to load short clips but longer vids are too much so quicktime was the solution. thanks :-)"

I have a dmc-tz1 camera and need to know how to upload pictures to my mac. I have i-photo. I do not have a manual. What icon do i need to turn my camera to to upload to mini mac?


When you plug the camera in and turn it on, (you may or may not have to go into review picture mode) it should appear on your desktop as a drive, usually called "no name". Just double-click on it and you can view the pics or drag and drop them to iPhoto. You could also buy a card reader and use it to download....it's faster and trouble-free.

Trying to upload photos from my Canon Power shot SD780 is to my Mac but when I plug in the cable the camera says "incompatible jpeg". And no icon to upload the photos shows up on my Mac.


if using iPhoto, check for software updates. When the newer cameras come out, sometimes it results in incompatibility with the software and they're always working to update this.
Also check your card in your camera. Some of the newer high speed cards struggle with uploads. You can purchase aftermarket high speed card readers and this will allow firewire rapid uploads direct to iPhoto and Aperture.

in iphoto under preferences, theres a drop down saying- connecting camera opens. make sure iphoto is selected.
Iphoto will automatically open when you plug in your camera, and ask you if you want to import your photos.
Also, sometimes I would plug in my camera and forget to turn the power on to it, (lol), so make sure your camera is turned on...;)

Is there a way to attach a dxg 305v to a mac running lopard


Your camera should have come with the cable that is needed to upload your images into your Mac. But you will need to upload your images into a photo program (like iPhoto) to store and manipulate them. Once the camera is plugged in and detected, iPhoto automatically imports them into the program. It will store both still and video images and has some pretty good built in editing features. Hope this helps!
