Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

IPhoto doesn't recognize Sony MVC CD300

I just upgraded to a Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5 (Mac) using OS 10.3.8 with iPhoto 4.0.3 and now I can't download photos from my Sony MVC CD300. When I first connect the USB cable from the camera to the G5, I get a message stating: "You have inserted a disk containing no volumes that Mac OS X can read. To continue with the disk inserted, click ignore." However, when I click Ignore, nothing happens. I previously owned a PowerPC G4 that used OS 9.2 and my camera would either download or I could insert the mini-CD into my optical drive and read the images on it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Will upgrading to iPhoto 5 resolve the problem?

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.

My mac wont let me update safari and in turn i cant access itunes store

Have you tried going to:

to download the latest version of iTunes?

You mentioned Safari, but you'll use iTunes to access the store. If you need the latest version of Safari, go to:

Safari requires at least Mac OS X 10.4.11 (click Apple menu in top, left corner and "About this Mac" to determine your version). iTunes is similar, though it requires 10.5.x and a more powerful computer for some features.

If you don't have at least 10.4, I'd recommend upgrading to it or 10.5, depending on which Mac you have. 10.5 works best on at least PowerPC G5 machines (such as iMac G5) or Intel machines (such as Intel iMac or MacBooks).

Good luck, and please let us know if this worked for you.
