Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I recently purchased a MacBook and I want to find out how to transfer photos from my Cybershot DSC170 to my Mac.


Answers :

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. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Alright Experts! Here's your chance to help a sad, pathetic, technologically-deficient mac user.

I have connected them to each other expecting the movies to easily move over, but it only recognizes the still photos that have been taken. On my Mac is iMovie '09 version 8.0.6 if that helps. Any solution would be greatly appreciated! I have a bunch of preschool parents d

Hi, I am in Rwanda trying to do a photo workshop with some kids. I was given a Sony Cybershot S750 to work with (in addition to my own cameras), but the owner does not have the driver on her computer and I cannot find a driver for this computer for MAC. I have a Powerbook Mac OS X Version 10.5.8. I really need to be able to download pictures to this camera and it's hard to believe that I can't find the proper driver so that my MAC will recognize it. I really would appreciate some help.

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time.
