Answers :

I found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.

rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.

-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
\015\012-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
\015\012-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
\015\012If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.

\015\012By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures\015\012folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your\015\012Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download\015\012To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.
