Images not downloading

I am using a Nikon D70 and Apple G4 with OS 10.3.9 and iPhoto. I am using the SanDisk ImageMate to download images. iPhoto usually opens, but, lately,I have been having trouble. Today I am unable to get iPhoto to open and it does not leave a disk image on the desk top. The compact flash card is SanDisk 1 gb. images show on the camera monitor. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Images not downloading

Hi, Have you ran disk utilities to repair disk permissions on the Mac lately? The app is usually in the Applications folder in Utilities.

Your camera image format maybe set to save both RAW and JPG file formats.
Change the setting to a single file format not both formats.

I have a Canon S30 digital camera and a Macbook running OS x 10.5.8. I use a San Disk USB card reader to download the images to my computer and when I do, the images look normal when they are at thumbnail...

One thing to remember is that most digital cameras capture an image and a thumb nail, the thumb nail in many cases is a separate file. So the problem can be the camera itself. The other issue is the image editing software you are using and how you are capturing the image? Are you capturing in jpg tiff or Canon Raw? While jpg is the easiest the best quality is with raw. You may need a plug in depending on which program you are using. iphoto is fairly good and you can check the Apple site or the canon site for plug ins for you camera. Download them, restart and see if the problem still exists. Software for Cannon and iphoto are free ( assuming you have ilife). Personally I love Adobe Elements and again check for recent plug ins. Good health and God bless.

Nikon D70 - Random 'Bad' Images

D70 doesn't appear on Mac desktop

This is easily solved.
Most probably the camera's USB connection mode is set to PTP. This is useful for certain situations such as controlling the camera from the computer (you even take photos from OS X's built in Image Transfer).
Change this to "Mass Storage" in the camera settings menu and your camera will behave just like a card reader. Next time you connect it to the computer, plug it it, then turn it on and it will appear on the desktop and in the sidebar as an attached drive.
Don't forget to eject it before disconnecting just as you would an ordinary external drive.

IPhoto doesn't recognize Sony MVC CD300

Even though Sony Mavica digital cameras are listed as compatible with iPhoto, the camera has to be set to Picture-Transfer-Protocol (PTP) before you can download. In addition, you will need to open Image Capture in the Applications folder. As soon as these steps are taken, the camera is recognized by iPhoto and all photos downloaded into Image Capture.

D70 USB setting issue

Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh

RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.
