Sony Mavica CD400 -- can't get iMac to see mini disks

I have several apple macintosh computers, G3, G4's and a home iMac. I have installed the usual Sony Mavica CD400 drivers and seeing the mini-disks is no problem on the other macs. But for the life of me I cannot get my iMac to see the finalized mini-CD's even with the recommended drivers. Is there something strange about my iMac? It is one of the earliest ones (a bondi blue PowerPC G3 233Mhz where the CD tray slides out and has a black click-on CD spindle in the middle). Has anyone found a solution? Cheers and thanks, Bob Bower

Bob: the Mac will never show what is on the disk.....and you don't hgave to finalize either. Do you have Image Capture on your units? If so, all you need to do is connect the camera via USB cable to the computer. The program will come on automatically (the camera has to be on), you can choose to download some or all of the pictures to a folder of your choice. HTH

Blueberry iMac with slot-loading CD rom drive will

It would be very difficult to open up the imac to retrieve the disc as the CD drive is totally enclosed and would probably result in it not be functional after removing the disk. Have a look at the following article on the apple website
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3007?viewlocale=en_US as it does indicate that the slot loading imac does have a hole for paperclip ejection. You could also try opening up disk utility and and clicking on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject. Hope this helps.
