Question about Nikon COOLPIX S8000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My iMac will not recognize the S8000 in the Nikon transfer program, in iPhoto, or in FIle explorer. Only image-capture detects the camera and then only the internally stored photos.

    That's my back up plan. I have a card reader for SD cards but it won't read the 16gb SD HC card I'm using with this camera so I am on my way to pick one one. The Nikon Transfer program looks really flaky anyway. Thanks for your response.

Some Macintosh computer systems support using a digital camera using SD/MMC card in two modes: 'Digital Camera' mode and 'Disk Drive' mode. At times, when try to use the camera using SD/MMC card in 'Digital Camera', it is not recognized by iPhoto or Image Capture. To solve such behavior, you might need to reformat the digital SD/MMC card and use backup to restore the lost files. But sometimes, you observe certain issues while restoring from backup or the backup is not available. To cope up with such situations, you should use Photo Recovery application to recover the lost files efficiently.
For an instance, consider that you perform following sequence of steps:
  • You connect your digital camera that uses SD/MMC card to a Macintosh computer in 'Disk Drive' mode
  • You switch to 'Digital Camera' mode and observe that the camera is no longer recognized by iPhoto or Image Capture
Similar behavior is also observed if you use FireWire or USB card reader to connect the SD/MMC card to your Macintosh computer and try to switch to 'Digital Camera' mode.
Solution

To prevent such errors from occurring, you should continue using the camera in 'Disk Drive' mode. You can then successfully access it through iPhoto or Image Capture. However, to solve the existing problem of the SD/MMC card, follow these steps:
  • Connect the camera in 'Disk Drive' mode or use FireWaire or USB card reader to access the card.
  • Backup all the files to your system
  • Use your digital camera to reformat the card.
Note: A digital camera using SD/MMC card uses different protocols in different modes so that to communicate with the Macintosh system. But it can only be accessed through Desktop, when connected in 'Disk Drive' mode.
After reformatting the SD/MMC card, sometimes you observe that backup is not valid and couldn't provide the required results. In such situations, you are suggested to use Digital Photo Recovery products to recover them. Photo Recovery utilities are competent tools to scan a logically crashed media using powerful scanning algorithms. Also, they provide interactive user interface that allows easy implementation

Computer does not recoznise images file


.Nef is Nikon's RAW image identifier. See if there's an update for iPhoto at Mac website. Perhaps your camera (if it's new) is not yet set up to upload to iPhoto. You didn't indicate what camera you're using.

I am trying to download pics from my Nikon coolpx to my IMac but iphoto does not recognize the camera - what do I need to do?


First, make sure that the Computer recognizes the Camera when connected to it using the USB cable.

When the computer recognizes the connected camera then a "No name" drive appears on the Desktop of the computer.

If the Computer is recognizing the Camera but iPhoto then follow the steps given below to transfer images from the Camera to the Computer:

Double-click the "No name" removable drive on the Desktop to view and navigate through the folders and files on the Camera.

You can see several folders, you may either navigate through each folder to locate the folder that contains the pictures or double click the "DCIM" folder to view all the images.
Next, copy all the desired images then paste them on the Hard Drive of the Computer.

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.

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.
