To view the pictures on the computer, try removing the card from the battery compartment and put it in a card reader connected to your computer.

Cannot download pictures

Try this...use a separate card reader. When it appears on your desktop as "no name"...double-click on it and select and drag and drop the files into a folder you create on your desktop. From there, it's easy to get them into iphoto.

How do I import avi video from my powershot sd600 to a mac powerbook? photos go right to iphoto, but I cannot find a way to get the avi movies on the camera onto the mac...using memory in a big way. ...

iphoto is just for still photos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. Double click on the video and Quicktime will play it. You can use imovie to edit it.

Can I export photos from iPhoto back into the Canon G9 PowerShot?

No, you can't.
You only can transfer the pictures back to the camera if the pictures were taken by the same model cameras, plus the pictures were not modified.

Cannot transfer files from computer back to Canon Powershot A530

Your camera is designed to be a source of pictures, not a destination. If you want to copy pictures to a memory card, you need to use a card reader and not a camera.

My canon powershot sd600 is not downloading to my iphotos

iPhoto deals with still photographs. For videos, try using iMovie or some other video management program.

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.
