When u connest the camera it usually gets detected as a removable drive ... open my computer and look for any added removable disk and browse for it and copy paste the video files

Canon Powershot S2 IS is not recognized on my iMac


Simple fix...use a separate card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can move them to iphoto.

I have lost my Digital Camera Solution CD ROM for canon power shot SD1100 IS - is there anywhere on the web that I can download this?


You can download it from Cannon, support,downloads, choose model. This is horrible software by the way. Once you have the basic driver for your model installed(Windows has many drivers pre-installed for many cameras), you are better off using MS picture and fax viewer. It does not have the lengthy and overly complicated stuff that comes with the camera. Anything that comes with the camera for free is usually junk written by grad students to practice their software engineering.

My canon powershot sd600 is not downloading to my iphotos


iPhoto deals with still photographs. For videos, try using iMovie or some other video management program.

Can't download large movie files to iphoto : (


i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.

rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.

-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.

By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.
