Is this a new problem - that is, did it work in the past? Are you trying to import jpeg or raw?
First thing is to see if it is iphoto or the camera that has a problem.
Try uploading the images to another computer (try a PC - not that it is better, but PC is different). If the images can be seen & read there, the images are likely fine and iphoto may need an upgrade to read the format from the finepix s1500. Alternately, try copying the photos from your memory card (use a memory card reader) to your hard disk. See if another application can see the images (even use a word processor to import image), or e-mail the image to yourself and then use your web-browser to see the image.
If the camera images can't be read by multiple computers/multiple readers, then it may be that your memory card is corrupted.
How are you uploading your images. If you are using a USB cable to your camera try going to memory card and a card reader. A memory card and card reader are seen by your computer the same as a hard drive.
1) plug in the cable from the camera to the Mac USB port
2) Switch on the camera
3) iPhoto should open automatically. If it does not, go to Applications/iPhoto and double click this.
4) You can choose Import in iPhoto and this will copy them into the iPhoto library.
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.
didn't realize I had sent you the email. I called Canon, and they were great. With the use of my husband's identical camera, we determined that I hadn't formatted the new card I was using, not the little one that came with the camera which I first used. It made the camera turn off every time I tried to upload (download?) the pics to the camera. The formatting is not always necessary with every camera, but it apparently is with this one. Doing it was fast and easy.
Hope this helps you help other folks like me!
If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.
Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
Even though Sony Mavica digital cameras are listed as compatible with iPhoto, the camera has to be set to Picture-Transfer-Protocol (PTP) before you can download. In addition, you will need to open Image Capture in the Applications folder. As soon as these steps are taken, the camera is recognized by iPhoto and all photos downloaded into Image Capture.
