This is easily solved.
Most probably the camera's USB connection mode is set to PTP. This is useful for certain situations such as controlling the camera from the computer (you even take photos from OS X's built in Image Transfer).
Change this to "Mass Storage" in the camera settings menu and your camera will behave just like a card reader. Next time you connect it to the computer, plug it it, then turn it on and it will appear on the desktop and in the sidebar as an attached drive.
Don't forget to eject it before disconnecting just as you would an ordinary external drive.

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.

Cannot download pictures


Try this...use a separate card reader. When it appears on your desktop as "no name"...double-click on it and select and drag and drop the files into a folder you create on your desktop. From there, it's easy to get them into iphoto.

D70 USB setting issue


Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
