    I recently purchased a digital surveillance camera and successfully downloaded the pictures that I took the first day. Since then, when I try, the computer says there are no photos to import. But there are!! I can see them and print them out on my Canon photo printer. I want to be able to save them on my computer tho. I use my Nikon digital camera to download by inserting the SD memory card into it as the Mac does not have an SD port.
    No settings have been changed that I know of.

    DH says for our digital camera we need to have a separate fire wire and one specifically for that particular camera.

    They can be found at an electronics store. (He said Circuit City but that doesn't exist anymore. [​IMG] )

    Good Luck!

    But if I take a couple of random photos on the Nikon using that SD card, the computer recognizes those just not the ones on the card taken by the surveillance camera. I am using all the same equipment that I used the first day when I was successful.

    His suspicion is that it is a different format, but he said to tell you he is no expert. [​IMG] Do you have a Mac store? The genius bar is very helpful! As is the help desk.

    LOL DH said to call tech support, that is what they are paid to do.
    He is a manager in tech support. [​IMG] And has some "thoughts" on what it could be, since he is a MAC guy. But says there are variables.

    Something to do with the camera "numbering" the new pics the same as the old ones?

    Yes. I Photo is what I use. I will call someone in the morning. The planets must have shifted or something!
