SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Problem downloading from Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 to Mac

OMG WOW. what is with people these days? what makes them think a digital photo is not a "FILE!!!!". screw any software your sony cam needs to run. you dont need it. its brainwashing garbage to keep computer users in a trance. sony digital cameras store their photos as files(like ALL digital cameras do). you simply plug your camera, or the camera's memory card into your computer. it will show up as a drive just like "ALL STORAGE DEVICES" do. you simply navigate to the folder inside the camera/memory card and "COPY AND PASTE" the files you want transfered. or drag and drop, same thing almost.

if i were you, i would never use photo managing software unless you constantly take hundreds of photos per day and need mass organizing.

but i reccomend making date labeled folders and manually creating your picture albums.

right click>new>folder. then copy whatver you want inside of it. the software you have used before does this exact same thing. just navigate to the directory where it stores the files at. the program will tell you in its settings. most programs that deal with somewhat personal files save to your "My Documents" folder. so its a 99% chance that is where the rest of your pictures are.

*do not forget! a photo is nothing but a "FILE" once it is stored on a digital medium.

Also, if you do not know how to navigate folders with the "2" unloosable mouse buttons you have, then you may be suffering from some cognitive function impairment and you need to see a doctor.

SOURCE: D70 doesn't appear on Mac desktop

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.

SOURCE: Unable to import photos from Rebel XT to iphoto on mac..."busy"

Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP

I can't get my new MacBook to recognize and import photos.

Mac's don't need a driver to recognize the camera however they usually need a specific program for different brands of photos. You can also try opening up iPhoto as that will usually recognize the camera. If iPhoto doesn't work and you don't want to install a new program you can also get a card reader that'll connect via USB and will avoid needing any program to transfer photos.

Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera: my mac won't recognize my camera like it always do...

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.

Hi i cant download my pics from my sony a200 to my mac. I have my usb connected to the camera but i'm getting no response. This seems so simple and I feel a bit stupid. Can you help?

Usually iPhoto can handle most cameras to import photos. If your Mac doesn't have iPhoto, which is now part of iLife, you should be able to plug the camera in via the USB port and it will show up on your desktop as another storage device. You can drag the images from there and use Preview to view and even edit them.

When I connect the camera the pics don't load

Does the camera show up on your desktop when you connect it? If so, just launch iPhoto. Inside iPhoto preferences, check the one that causes iPhoto to launch whenever you attach a camera, and you won't run into this behavior in the future. If the camera does not show up on your desktop, or in System Profile's USB column, then you have a bad USB cable or a bad USB port either on the camera or on your Mac.
