Question about Cameras
It sounds like the camera is being detected, and reading some info about the pictures, but can't download them. Make sure the memory card's contacts are clean (use a qtip and 90% isopropyl alcohol or purer).
The contacts inside the camera should be checked also, and ensured they're clean. Also make sure none of them are bent, or misaligned.
Memory cards can be erased or formatted, and reused. If the computer will detect it as a hard drive, you can drag or move the pics to a folder on your computer. I don't have a mac, so I'm not sure how that system works. There's a chance that some pics on the card are corrupt for some reason....if the camera was unconnected while pictures were in the middle of being transferred, so the data could be corrupt. If you have access to another computer, try to download the pictures to it.
Pick the format option in the camera menu to erase the pics, and you'll be ble to reuse it.
There is a chance the card is just bad, but they rarely just go bad.
That's all I can think of...hope it helps.

These camera memory cards do wear out and will not hold photos you take. Time to replace the memory card
