use a usb cable or a card reader both are mac compatible, may be a dongle will also help, go online and down load the software for mac, restart before another attempt, you may also restart the computer with you camera on and connected to to the computer by usb
Most common problem is, people forget to put the correct software on the
PC (or MAC) so the computer knows it should load pictures. For most
equipment, drivers are loaded automaticaly, when it is connected to the
computer. But the software that is delivered with the camera is needed
to load pictures to the PC. If you don't hav ths software, you could try
to get the pictures to the PC with a card reader. That does not require
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 any photo cataloging program.
First of all, always remember to "eject" your equipment on a Mac and use "safely remove hardware" on a PC when you disconnect to avoid corrupting the camera. To avoid problems in the future, do what the pros do...use a separate card reader like the one pictured here.
If your computer is running a current operating system, such as Windows XP/Vista/7 or Mac OS X, there is no driver available for this camera to communicate directly. The best thing to do is to purchase ($10 - $15) a USB card reader that can read the CF card from your camera. There are programs 'built in' to current Windows and Mac OSs that can read the pictures from the card and load them directly into your computer.
try going to the camera web site see if there is any mac software that will work with your camera or go to the web site of the camera and see if there is a down load for your camera for a mac . or see if your friend has a pc and try to down load the pics on thrir computer.
Apple made that very easy with the current operating system, OSX. All you need to do is have the camera off, plug the connector cable to the camera and to a USB port on your Mac. Once you turn the camera on, your Mac should load iPhoto and will give you the option to import from your camera.
