Question about Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera

MAC is not Recognizing the S410

I have had my S410 for almost 5 years. I have had my iMac for 3 years. Until now I have had no problem downloading my pictures on to my computer. My iPhoto is working properly, it recognized my Nikon D50 with no problem several times in the past few weeks. It will not recognize my Canon though. It does seem that something is happening, when I plug the camera into the computer iPhoto opens and the color wheel starts to turn. It never finds the camera though. In the inport box it says that no camera is connected.


Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Sony TX7 to iMac Converter-Deinterlace 1080i MTS to QuickTime MOV Cyber-shot...

Sony TX7 to iMac Converter-Deinterlace 1080i MTS to QuickTime MOV

Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 is a new camera by Sony for consumers to shoot 1920x1080i and 1440x1080i AVCHD videos in .mts format. The camera also includes MP4 output, but only with 1440x1080p, 1280x720p and 640x480p resolution. To get HD 1920x1080 videos, the output videos is .mts as file extension. This format provides high definition videos, but is recorded with interlacing artifacts.
However, to play Sony TX7 camera AVCHD videos on big-screen iMac smoothly, I need HD video converter for Mac. I find Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as the perfect Sony TX7 MTS to MOV Converter on Mac OS X to handle my movies. With this Sony to MOV converter, I can show my recent trip to my relatives and friends from iMac, sharing the joy and experiences.
Here are the steps I used to convert and deinterlace 1080i AVCHD videos to H.264 MOV for playing my Nevada trip on QuickTime Player.
Step 1. Load Sony TX7 MTS to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac.
After transferring Sony DSC-TX7 AVCHD videos to Apple iMac hard drive, run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac as Sony MTS converter and click the "Add" button to load .mts videos.
Step 2. Choose H.264 output format.
Click the "Format" option and choose HD Video > H.264 HD Video(*.mov) as output format. The Mac Sony TX7 MTS to MOV converter will transcode 1080i .mts videos to 1080p .mov for QuickTime on Mac.

Tips: You can also choose the .mp4 output format for playback on iMac, as QuickTime Player supports .mp4 videos.
Step 3. Convert Sony TX7 AVCHD to MOV.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Mac Sony MTS converter starts converting Sony DSC-TX7 MTS to MOV in full HD 1920x1080.
After the conversion, I show Sony TX7 camera videos at home to relatives with big-screen iMac. Take Sony TX7 camera or other AVCHD camcorders for your travel, and it is easy to show relatives the recent wonderful trip with the HD videos and beautiful scenes.

Mac won't recognise canon drive

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to a Windows computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Canon PowerShot SD850 sound files not downloadable to Mac

I had the same problem. On my macbook I open the image capture application (in my applications folder) and a list of all the files (not just photos) on my camera comes up. Here I can choose to import the wav files and the movie (avi) files. I usually just save them to a folder and when I play them my mac finds the right player automatically. Good luck.

Usb reader/ writer

Start "Disk Utility" and "repair disk permissions on all disks.  Restart the Mac and it should fix.   I don't believe one ever needs to load a driver on a Mac for any card reader.   It should work as plug and play.
Good luck.

CD400 and imac

I have a mac and never need to finalize the disc. All I do is hook up the USB to the camera and the computer, then turn on the camera and the application called Image Capture will come on automatically, you can download some of the pics or all. They will go into a folder you choose. HTH

Sony Mavica CD400 -- can't get iMac to see mini disks

Bob: the Mac will never show what is on the disk.....and you don't hgave to finalize either. Do you have Image Capture on your units? If so, all you need to do is connect the camera via USB cable to the computer. The program will come on automatically (the camera has to be on), you can choose to download some or all of the pictures to a folder of your choice. HTH
