How do i download pictures from cd to mac
Easiest way. Make a new folder on your desktop. Depending on the OS, use the keys Command N or Shift Command N for a new folder. Title the folder. The Apple key immediately to the left and right of the space bar is the Command Key.
Insert the CD into the tray. When it opens drag the folder or files on the CD to your newly-created desktop folder. Remove the CD. You may now move the photos to IPhoto or any other location of your own choosing and edit them, turn them into a slide show or do with them what you will.
Using the same technique you can also transfer files ( any files, not just photos) from a USB device.
If your CD tray does not work or cannot read the CD (wrong format, etc) you have to progress to more ingenious solutions. Worst case, the screen will state "disk unreadable by this computer." Possibly formatted for Windows or some unreadable DAT format. Then you will have to go back to the source and reformat the files to JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG or some format your Imac will recognize.
