You don't need to download any software to your camera.
You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software (for your Mac) here.
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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Try this, it may work without the software.  Turn off the camera. Plug the usb cable between the camera and the computer. Turn on the camera. If a box pops up on the computer asking what you want to do, scroll down and see if there is an option to view pictures. If a window opens up with all your pictures on it, great. Now open up a folder where you want to put your pictures. Bring up the other window with the pictures in it and hit the control key and the d key at the same time on your keyboard. Then drag your pictures to the window where you want them and let go of the mouse key.  They should all move over. Then you can use Windows image viewer to see them. Let me know if that works.

Unfortunately there is no driver available for this camera for Mac. I am a Mac user and have this camera, I had to use a Windows computer to download the photos. Windows will automatically install the drivers once you plug the camera in. You can't see the camera as a drive but you can launch the software and download your photos.

The camera was for my kids but in my opinion the quality of photos is not worth the inconvenience of getting them off.

Suddenly we can't connect to our Mac. It worked fine before, but all of a sudden it's stopped. restarted the computer checked the connections, but nothing. it's just stuck.


As a Mac user I don't bother with the camera software nor do I download using the camera. Best way to work around the software and firmware incompatibilities is to purchase a memory card reader. The Mac looks at this as an external drive and you can open the memory card see the thumbnails copy and paste the files into a folder in "Documents". Don't know what OS you have but there is a viewer that you can open to see the pictures and if you were successful in loading the camera software you can use it to do your photo editing. My suggestion would be to invest in a Photoshop program. The reason I'm suggesting this is Photoshop is the "industry" standard and by having a multiple port card reader you can change cameras, even memory card types without the hassle of programming compatibilities. Now as far as this "all of a sudden it stopped" what has happened is there was an auto update which basically made the camera download non compatible.
I don't know how old your Panasonic is but there is a lot of people still using "older" digital cameras that work just fine but the computer updates and software is leaving them in the dark. The Mac will work great with the card reader (I'm using Photoshop CS3) and a Photoshop program even if you update the OS. People that are using PC and upgrade to Windows 7 are just dead in the water when it come to the camera software. Oh and another thing that's happening is memory card capacity at one time a 2gig was huge and the camera firmware was compatible with 2gig memory but, if you try putting a larger memory card in say a 4gig the camera won't accept it. I was fortunate with a couple of my Pro cameras where I was able to go onto the manufactures web site and update my cameras. Cheers have a great day ;-)

I lost the cd so is there any how i can download the software from the interne


The software isn't necessary in order to get the photos on your computer, you can use your operating system (i.e. Windows / Mac ) to get to the photos themselves. However if you wish to use the editing software that typically comes with most cameras, you can often go to the camera manufacturer's website and download the software. For example if it were an HP camera, one would be able to go to www.hp.com and click "Drivers and Downloads" then enter in their model number. Which would then populate the user with the downloads that would have been on the CD, and often times their updated versions.

Just got powershotsx10is did't have software(cd-rom)for my computer.can i get a download off internet.


you don't really need a software to use it, both Windows and Mac will recognize the camera and will allow you to download the images and videos.

Canon's softwares are far from being user friendly and it is a waste of space of your hard drive

Accidentally deleted pictures off of camera [NOT memory card]


You can try to recover your pictures with this photo recovery software:

It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect.

Hi there,

If you're a MAC user, you could still download pictures from your camera to PC.

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera will be recognized automatically as a removable disk.

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.

For transferring pictures with OS (MAC):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Make sure to check your MAC System for the following:
- Power Mac G3 or later
- Mac OS 9.2~10.3
- Minimum 64MB RAM
- 110MB of available hard-disk space
