Sanyo VPC-SX500 I bought a new iMac and cannot get my photos to download from my old Sanyo VPC-SX500 camera.  I have the set up CD but when I try to use it I get the message You can't open the application because the Classic environment is no longer supported.  The CD does say that MGI Photosuite SE for Macintosh is on there.  Do I just need an upgraded set up CD?  One that the newer iMac operating system will run?

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct?
