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.

Need upgraded photo loader for mac os x


Try using Image Capture. It's in the Applications folder and can read most digital cameras. If that doesn't work get a card reader and download the images that way. 
If you have it, iPhoto should work with it as well and will help you to keep your photos organized and make adjustments.

Webcam installation of genius slim 1322AF to mac os x


No installation needed on my Mac (1.8 Ghz PowerPC G5, OSX 10.5.5) to use the 1322AF; just plug the cam in your USB port. The camera is detected automatically when starting a relevant program (f.e. Skype). Unfortunaley Photo Booth crashes sometimes (!) Also the software "CrazyTalk" (included) is for Windoze users only.
Hope it works for your guys, too...
