Question about Cameras

Camera won't load to Mac desktop

When I plug in the USB cord to my Mac, using OSX) the camera's Icon (Untitled) doesn't appear on my desktop screen. If I reboot the Mac to OS9, the Icon will appear, but I can't find the pictures I just took, even they do show up on the camera's screen.

If I go to a PC, everything works fine. This just started happening. I've never had a problem viewing pictures from this camera on my Mac before I went to OSX.

Can you help me? Thanks...

    Driver? It's never required a Driver before and the specs state that the Camera is compatable with OSX operating systems.

Trouble downloading pics from olympus 780 to mac laptop running sys 10.7.4


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

It will not open iphoto on my mac osx


Get yourself a Card reader. Take the card out of the camera and plug it into the mac (Your printer may already have one built in) The card is a USB mass storage device and should pop up onto the desktop without bothering with the camera. iPhoto will not open automatically so just drag the card contents onto the iPhoto icon in the dock. It will then open up and transfer all the pictures automatically.
I haven't plugged my camera into the computer now for about 3 years.

Cannot connect to Computer


Turn off computer. Turn ON computer and immediately hold down Apple+option+p+r. after 4 chimes let go. You are going to be using the Firewire cable. once the camera is on and plugged into computer go to : apple> about this mac> more info click on Firewire. on the right hand side you should see your camera. Now if you don't its either the Firewire port on camera or the cable it self. to further isolate. Get your older computer. leave off. plug the firewire cable into both computers. Now the older computer that is turned off. TURN ON and immediately hold down the " T " on keyboard. ON the polder mac, your screen with have like a "Y" icon.. its a Firewire icon. Now look on the other computers desktop, do you see a yellow or blue hard drive on desktop. IF you do.. ITS your camera because we just tested your cable and both ports and they are working. Now try the USB cable and see if its detected by computer by going back to Apple system profiler and see if the computer is detecting it

Can't download my video files from xacti e2 to my computer


TRANSFERRING RECORDED IMAGES AND VIDEOS FROM YOUR VPCT700 DIGITAL CAMERA TO YOUR COMPUTER

Connecting the Camera to Your Computer
1. Connect one end of the USB cable to the PC/AV terminal of the camera.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable to an available USB port on your computer.
3. Turn on your camera.
-The [USB] screen appears.
4. Select [PC] with the Up and Down Arrow buttons, and press the SET button.
5. From the Windows desktop, double click on “My Computer”.
6. Look for a new “Removable disk” icon. This “Removable disk” is actually the memory card in your camera. Typically, the camera will be assigned drive letter “E” or higher.
7. Double click on the removable disk and locate the DCIM folder.
8. Double click on the DCIM folder to open it to find more folders.
-Your recorded images and video clips will be inside these folders.
-Copy & Paste or Drag-N-Drop image and video files to a folder on your computer.

Mac users: Double-click the “untitled” or “unlabeled” disk drive icon on our desktop. iPhoto may automatically launch.


Downloading images and Video Files
When the camera is turned on and connected to your computer, it is considered to be a disk drive, just like a floppy disk or CD. You can download (transfer) images by copying them from the “Removable disk” (“untitled” or “unlabeled” disk on a Macintosh) to your computer hard drive.

Windows
Open the “removable disk” and subsequent folders by double clicking on them. Your images are inside these folder(s). Select the images that you want, and then choose “Copy” from the “Edit” menu. Open the destination location (folder) and choose “Paste” from the “Edit” menu. You may also drag and drop image files from the camera to a desired location.

Macintosh
Open the “untitled” disk icon, and the destination location on your hard disk. Drag and drop from the camera to the desired destination.

NOTE
- Memory card users may prefer to use a memory card reader (highly Recommended).
- Video playback application is not included with the package. Make sure that video playback application has been installed in your computer.

GZ-MG330 with mac OSX 10.4.10


I had the same problem with the Everio MG330 and I have fixed this problem!!
iMovie needs to be updated to v7.1.1 or it will NOT import from the Everio MG330 HDD video camera.  iMovie '08 is not enough, it needs to be upgraded to v7.1.1

I searched long and hard and finally found this.  IT WORKS NOW!!
1. Update to iMovie 7.1.1 2. Close iMovie 3. Plug in camera using USB cable (iMovie is OFF) 4. Open camera viewer to turn on camera 5. Choose top option (I think it is watch on PC or download to PC or something like that) 6. Open iMovie and follow the pop up instructions for importing.
Please go back to all of the other places you have looked to fix this problem and post this.  Let's help each other.

EX-S600 and Mac OSX 10.5.2


Checking Casio's website the latest driver version they have for Mac OS's is 8.6. It's not Apples' problem it's Casio's for not supporting their product. They do have a firmware update to correct a couple of issues & allow larger than 32Mb memory cards. Their URL is as follows:

http://world.casio.com/qv/download/en/

One solution is to use a USB memory card reader. I prefer the card readers because they allow faster access of your picture files. Plus you're not concerned about running the batteries down or needing to use a power cord.

Good luck
