Question about Computers & Internet

Hello, iphoto won't import my digital camera video clips. My camera hooks up without a problem but when I import it only imports photos. It used to import them without any trouble. I think I recently upgraded to iphoto 6.0 Does that have anything to do with it? Thanks in advance for your expertise.

When I import from the camera to iphoto, duplicates of every picture import


I have the same problem!!! Every single time I import from my Nikon D90 I get duplicates of each photo on Iphoto. It never happened in 4 years, just recently does happen. Is it a setting from camera or from Iphoto? How to avoid this, without having to create separate folders on desktop as mentioned above. I just want to plug the USB and download on Iphoto without doing anything else. It gets frustrating as I usually download thousands of photos each month.

Will not read new photos on my camera but has read others before


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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.

Does this camera work with macs OS X 10.5. I am able to download picts into iPhoto, but they won't stay there, they disappear. I have kodak c813 easy share.


When you connect your camera to your mac, iPhoto may open up and display the photos from your camera on screen (look to see that the camera is shown in the lefthand sidebar in iPhoto). However, the photos are not stored on your computer until to click 'Import'. After import, your photos are copied into the 'iPhoto Library' and now stored on your mac.To find them click on 'Events' or 'Photos' from the Library menu on the left sidebar.
If you are still having trouble copying your photos from your camera. Try using the 'Image Capture' app in the Applications folder to transfer photos from a camera.

Pictures and video will not import to iphoto

The same applies to videos, except that you'd want to use iMovie instead of iPhoto.

How do I import avi video from my powershot sd600 to a mac powerbook? photos go right to iphoto, but I cannot find a way to get the avi movies on the camera onto the mac...using memory in a big way. ...


iphoto is just for still photos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. Double click on the video and Quicktime will play it. You can use imovie to edit it.

How to make videos on macintosh


Dear sir,
You can make videos by using iMovie software installed on your system.
Plug in virtually any digital camcorder and iMovie starts importing your video. Then iMovie helps you organize your video just as you organize photos: by putting everything in one central location and grouping video clips according the date they were taken. So it’s easy to find the clips you’re looking for — whether to watch or to edit. Don’t have a camcorder? You can still use iMovie: It displays video you captured on your still camera and imported into iPhoto.

have a nice day
good luck

Can't get pics to my mac computer, won't transfer.


When you get the popup from iPhoto don't click on any iPhoto buttons. Instead, click on command+tab and change to your Finder application (leaving iPhoto open in the background).

1) Create a new folder on your Desktop or in your Pictures folder. This is where you will copy your photo files.

2) Click on File, then New Finder window. Size these finder windows so you can see both of them at the same time. In the second window, go to your computer, and then to the drive that represents the memory card in your camera.

3) Drag and drop to copy the files from the camera's memory card Finder window to the new folder Finder window, dropping the files into the new folder on your computer's hard drive.

4) Use command+tab to change back to iPhoto. Cancel from the import warning window. In iPhoto click on File then Import to Library

5) In the import dialog tell iPhoto to move the photos (not to import them in their current location) so that iPhoto puts the photos in the same place it put your other photos when it imported them directly from the camera.

If you can't do all of these steps, tell me how far you got, and what happened.

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.

Transfering Video Clips


Hi I've had this problem with two Panasonics Lumix so far (FZ-7 and FX-9) - I'm guessing this is a Panasonic firmware / iPhoto incompatibility. The only solution I've found is to manually copy the movies from the camera to to your Mac and then drag n drop them into iPhoto. To do this: 1) Go to the Fnder desktop and open up the camera's hard-drive icon (probably called 'NO NAME' - nice!). 2) You should see a folder inside called 'DCIM' - double-click to open this 3) Inside this you will see at least one folder (though there maybe 2 or 3) called 102_PANA (or 103_PANA etc) 4) These folders are where the camera stores all your pictures and videos and (hopefully) will contain the actual movies that iPhoto neglected to fully import 5) Drag these onto your desktop (or a newly created folder on the desktop called 'Videos from camera' for example) and wait for them to copy fully 6) Now you can safely drag and drop the videos from the folder on your camera into the Mac's Wasterbasket 7) Import the copied movies into iPhoto (either by dragging and dropping or by the 'File --> Import to L:ibrary' menu command) 8) Once they have been imported, you can optionally delete these videos from the desktop now 9) Remember to repeat steps 3 to 8 for each folder you find in the 'NO NAME/DCIM' folder on the camera That's it - hope it works for you. I'd love to know if anyone else has a more elegant solution!! Cheers S
