Question about Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

MacBook is not recognizing my Canon G6

I have uploaded all current drivers and everything I can think of....my macbook is not recognizing the connection of my G6 camera so I can't upload photos!  This is essential to my business and it's making me crazy!
I've had my MacBook since June and have only started having this problem since mid-August.  I assume it has something to do with software updates.
PLEASE HELP!

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). 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 management program.

SOURCE: my computer does not recognize camera software

I had the same problem. I am not in any way a computer guy. The problem was, I had been downloading the pictures from my Canon digital Camera onto a Dell desktop with windows XP through the front USB port for years, no problems. One day, it just stopped working, and I would get a "unknown device" message when I went into the device manager. If I tried to open up the software that came with the camera and clicked "start image transfer" , I would get "camera not found" Anyway, I googled it, and found on one forum somewhere someone suggested the culprit could be a newly downloaded or upgraded version of realplayer. So I went into realplayer tools, preferences. I turned off the automatic updates and message center and re-booted as instructed. I plugged in the camera, and it worked. If the person who posted that information is reading this, I thank you. I would have NEVER figured that out, and would likely be buying a new camera for no reason.

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 :-)"

SOURCE: I can't find a driver

Consider 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 Canon ZoomBrowser or iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Try downloading the driver from the below link. With Snow Leopard, if a printer is plugged in and Snow Leopard doesn't already have the driver, it's supposed to download it via Software Update; however, this sometimes does not work well.

try using the image capture utility when connected to the computer. canons are notorious for forcing you to use image utilities (picture wizard in windows and image capture in macos). my canon xsi did the same thing.
