    As originally stated I already have Nikon Transfer 1.5.2, the latest version. Nikon.com/drivers mentioned in your reply as a solution is not a valid URL.



    What's your next suggestion?

    So, any more great ideas for my $15 bucks?

    None of the above solutions worked or were applicable. I solved problem by purchasing a digital card reader. The pictures downloaded OK into iPhoto. After reformatting the SD card in the camera, I took several test pictures which also downloaded OK. Problem must have been in the card. Thanks for the help.

Hi Bob.

Problem is a well known issue between Snow Leopard and several cameras. You will need to play with installed software and setting. Here different work around.

Temprarily turn Bluetooth off. See here.

Try installing the following: Adobe - Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter

If that does not work, try setting the Mac with camera mass storage in USB mode, I quote a testimonial from this forum:

"I found a workaround/solution for my issue. My camera has two USB modes: "Mass Storage (USB DIRECT-PRINT)" and "PTP (PictBridge)". I've always used PTP with my mac and everything has been fine. But apparently iPhoto on OSX 10.6 no longer likes PTP (keep in mind that Image Capture handles the camera fine in PTP mode). When I switched it to Mass Storage mode, it works fine now in iPhoto."

If still no luck, change preference to image capture, I quote:

"1) ejecting the "camera name" from the desktop. I had to do this step because I had tried to connect to iPhoto and it didn't work.
2) Going to iPhoto prefs and selecting Connecting camera opens "Image Capture" - not iPhoto.
3) Connecting the camera again. Image Capture opens.
4) In image capture selecting from the bottom left hand corner Connecting camera opens "iPhoto"
5) iPhoto magically opened and I could import and delete."

If still no luck, do a new upgrade using a combo installer, see here.

If all that does not work, contact Apple, camera is supported by Snow Leopard and they must find a solution. See: Apple - How to Contact Us.

Ensure that you try all workaround, there is no "one for all Macs" solution for this problem.


If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

Good luck.

Ginko.

This can be a software mismatch and so I think can try to upload a new driver for MAC supporting your version.
Uninstall the present one and reinstall, then connect your Nikon and try again.

Hello Bob. Go to Nikon.com/drivers and download the driver that is especially written for your camera and your MAC. This is a free download. After you download this new driver, run it. Then you should be fine. Joe

Do what the pros do to avoid this very problem...use a card reader to download to a folder you create on the desktop. Once there, you can send the pics to iPhoto.

Create a folder on your desktop. Using a card reader, drag and drop your pics into that folder. From there, you can transfer the pics to iPhoto.

I am not sure if I can help but what I would suggest is first of all disconnect the camera from the mac and then if you have iphoto go to preferences and make sure that iphoto is the application that is activated when the camera is plugged in. Then close the preferences. Now connect the camera to your mac. If you do not have iphoto you can use image capture which is in the applications folder. Hope this helps.

Does nikon coolpix S10 work with mac os 10.6.4?


The camera doesn't care what computer you have, let alone the version of the operating system.

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. Or you can use iPhoto or any photo cataloging program.

The current version of Nikon Transfer only supports 10.6.2. ViewNX2 does support 10.6.4. Once the pictures are on the Mac, you can continue using iPhoto, or use ViewNX2 (or both) to organize and catalog your pictures.
