I have had this problem with my HP Photosmart M415 and my Sony digital video camera ever since installing the latest Apple X 10.5. I solved the HP camera problem by taking the memory stick out and putting it into a SanDisk reader and plugging that into the USB. Worked like a charm. Still can't get the Mac to recognize the video camera. Seems to be an Apple problem.

Your camera should work fine with the built in iPhoto software, simply launch the program and connect your camera, you should be able to download your pictures immediately.

Why my camera tell me "impossible connection" when I try to put my photos on my Mac? And what is the software which is installed when I read the CD?


The Nikon download software is called Nikon Transfer 2. I would remove the SD card from your camera and slide it into the SD slot on your Mac. If you have an iMac, the slot is located just below the CDROM slot on the right side. Do not do this by feel. Look as you insert the card because if you insert it in the CDROM slot, you may not be able to extract it. If you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro, check the manual for the location. When the computer recognizes your SD card, it will either open Nikon Transfer 2 or a folder will appear on your desk top. If Nikon Transfer does not open, just copy your pictures from the SD card folder to a folder on your Mac.

Macbook pro doesnt recognize my canon vixia hv30


Try a different cable, the one you're using may have got damaged.
Check the firewire driver is installed and running on the Mac.
If the camera came with software, try re-installing it.
Good luck.

Computer does not recognize the camera. I am


The HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart software is not installed on the computer. Install the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, or see Using Your Camera without Installing the HP camera software in your camera User's Manual.The computer is configured such that it cannot recognize the camera as a digital camera using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) standard. Set the USB configuration in the Setup menu on the camera to Disk Drive mode.

My Mac does not recognize my Canon HV 30 DV when i connect the FireWire.


I've been around the block with this for days, including a fresh installation of the software on my MacBook Pro. Sigh.

Here's what seemed to work:

1) Reset Vixia HV30 (tiny reset button behind the battery). Did not change any settings on the camera after that.

2) Installed Canon's software that dropped some canon-related files in Library/Quicktime folder.

3) Opened new iMovie 6.0.3 and Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1 projects (a) FCE (using Easy Setup in FCE) to Apple Intermediate Codec 1080i60 (b) iMovie 'HDV 1080i'.

4) Connected 4-pin --> 6-pin firewire cable out of the camera to a bus-powered external drive and from the drive, firewire 800 --> firewire 800 --> MacBook Pro 10.5.8.

This was a last-ditch, Hail Mary effort. It worked, and the camera showed up in the System Profiler firewire window, too, whereas it had not before all of the above. Still does not show up when hooked directly from the camera to the FW 800 input, but at least I can capture now.

Connection between camera and computer


What operating system are you using? Is you camera connected via USB? Have you tried using another USB port? Did you make sure to install the software before plugging in your camera?

Generally if you are running Windows 98, you will need to reboot after installing the software to even have a chance of the camera being recognized correctly.

If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the camera should be recognized and a driver installed or searched for from the CD software you installed before plugging in the camera.

Sometimes if you plug in the camera first without installing the software, the PC finds a new device with no driver. You can see this by going to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and you should see and exclamation on a device in the list. You need to remove this item and reboot your PC.

Now install the software first and when the install is done, then plug in your camera. Generally this works out pretty well.
