I have not done this before however,
1. Power off the MAC.
2. Hold the Mac vertically on its side with the DVD slot facing down

Hvae you tried taking the card out then looking on the camera for any stored images.

A lot of cameras will automatically use the storage card when it is inserted instead of the camera memory.

You maybe out of luck and lost all your pictures.
