Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
My macbook was just reimaged and when I put my photos back on, iphoto took over or merged with my desktop, so now iphoto starts everytime I click on desktop (but with no photos) -- have you ever heard of a problem like this? I cant put any icons on what appears to be the desktop. and furthermore there's an item called desktop, but with the iphoto icon, in the trash. This is bizarre! Any insights?

I have the same problem running os 10.4.9 and iTunes 7.3 and have yet to figure thos one out. Try turning off auto detection in iphoto. Chances are that iphone not only looks like an ipod to the computer but also a digital camera. I actually use thos feature to organise my photos so o havent tried it yet.

To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.
Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.

Try this. Click on the desktop Then from the "Finder" menu choose "Preferences". In the "General" tab, make sure all the boxes are ticked - especially the one for "hard disks".

You can't scan directly into iPhoto however the software that came with your HP scanner should have something that can. If you don't have the software you will need to download it from the much easier to navigate HP.com site. Once you have scanned them using HPScan you can transfer them into iPhoto by drag and drop from app to app or Finder to iPhoto.
All the best

SOURCE: can not open desktop icons.
Go into your Utilities folder and open Disk Utility. Select your Macintosh HD in the pane on the left, then select "Repair Disk Permissions". Once the process has completed, try rebooting and see if it resolves your issue.
