I've been having the same problem. It must be because of an iPhoto update because I transferred lots of videos to my Mac via iPhoto all spring and summer and never had this happen.

If you open iPhoto and select preferences and then in the "Connecting Camera Opens" drop down select CameraWindow.

Quit iPhoto and connect your camera to your Mac. A window will pop up and prompt you to push the transfer button on your camera. Push that and your photos and videos will download without using iPhoto.

Hopefully Apple will fix this soon. I really enjoyed the seamless interaction between my Canon SD1000 and iPhoto.

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.

Software lost on old computer for powershot sd1000


You don't need any additional software.


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.

Your camera image format maybe set to save both RAW and JPG file formats.
