Camera/computer won't respond when i connect camera to computer via usb

I can't upload camera contents to my computer (powerbook g4). when i connect the camera to the computer via usb, nothing happens. it was working fine, but last time i uploaded images to my computer (i have it set so that iphoto starts up automatically) iphoto gave an error message that no all images could be uploaded and ever since then it has not worked.

The camera's driver (software that facilitates communication between your computer and a peripheral device, such as a digital camera) may be corrupt or outdated. We'll discuss drivers in the next section. If your computer still won't recognize the camera, you may need to enable the USB ports in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). Check your computer's users manual or the computer manufacturer's technical support line to learn how to do this. Only edit the BIOS if you are comfortable doing so.

Photo transfer problems are as likely to be related to software as to hardware. If you use photo-editing software other than what came with your camera, check the software's documentation and Web site to see if the manufacturer supports your camera. Download and install any software updates, as well.
If your photo-editing software can't detect your camera, make sure your camera is attached, turned on, and, if necessary, switched to transfer mode. Double-click the My Computer icon and look for an icon that corresponds to your camera. If you see an icon for your camera, you know that Windows detects your camera and that the problem is related to your photo-editing software. You may have a corrupt or missing TWAIN driver. TWAIN drivers let digital-imaging software recognize devices such as cameras and scanners. Try reinstalling or updating your camera's drivers (as we discussed above).

File formats might pose another problem. Most photo editors support all major image formats except RAW, a proprietary format with no compression or loss of data. RAW images are in the camera's native "language," so only the camera and selected software can read these files. For instance, a Nikon camera's RAW data is different than an Olympus camera's RAW data. If you want to capture images in RAW format, use the software that came with your camera to open images. Then save two copies of the file (one in RAW format and one in another format, such as JPEG [Joint Photographic Experts Group] or TIFF [Tagged Image File Format] that your photo editor can open).

If you don't need to edit but only copy images, you may be able to bypass a photo editor altogether by attaching your camera, double-clicking the My Computer icon on your Desktop, double-clicking your camera's icon, and dragging image files from the camera to your hard drive.

    Another important storage issue is organization. Your digital images can become as cluttered as that old shoebox full of photo prints. Searching 20 minutes for a photo is no more fun when rummaging through computer files than when flipping through unorganized prints stashed in shoeboxes. Try renaming image files so you can search for BobsParty.jpg rather than DSC-023.jpg. Consider these questions to help you create an effective organizational system

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 any photo cataloging program.
