This camera is recognized by my system profiler, but there is no way to access the photos. The driver disk that came with is does not appear to have any Mac compatible software on it. Could it be that this camera is not compatible with Mac 10.4.11?

I assume this is about a digital camera, not a film camera. Also, since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.
What kind of camera, and film, did you buy? Polaroid discontinued production of film in 2006, and the only remaining film is old stock, or available from the impossible project. There are other types of film available, but not compatable with all types of polaroid cameras. This information will have a HUGE impact on the solution to your problem.
1) Type of camera (not just Polaroid, they made HUNDREDS of models)
2) Type/Size/Brand of film
There's a sliding catch on the left side of the camera (as viewed from the front) at the forward edge. Slide it and the lower front panel drops down to reveal the loading slot. Insert the photo pack (you may need to remove an old empty photo pack first).
If the new photo pack is an original Polaroid one, then because they are all so old and far out of date then you may find that the battery is totally dead or has just enough power to eject the cover slide and perhaps one photo. If that is the case either convert your camera to accept an external 6v dc power supply before using the expensive photo pack or buy a freshly manufactured compatible pack from The Impossible Project.
You don't. It's built into the photo packs which are no longer available. If you do find expired photo packs they will almost definitely have flat batteries (or very nearly so) by now even if the film itself has been kept fresh via refrigeration.
The camera needs to be converted to use an external power supply if you have ready access to expired photo packs.
The battery is built into the photo pack and cannot be replaced separately. All Polaroid photo packs are now long out of date and most have flat batteries so are useless unless the camera is converted to accept an external 6v dc power supply.
Alternatively check out The Impossible Project for compatible alternative photo packs: monochrome only, just eight shots per pack and the images are unpredictable and tend to fade rapidly, but they're the only other choice if you don't want to convert your camera.

Probably the problem is with your PC.The operating system XP can detect a camera automatically and operates with your camera.If u dont have XP u have to install the camera using the cd comes with the camera.
