Hi, i am unable to transfer any pictures from my newly purchased D90. The transfer software loaded fine onto my lab top and it recognises the D90 camera as external hardware. However when i click start transfer nothing happens nor do i get any error messages. I can view the photos fine when the card is in the camera but for some reason the software cant see them when i connect via USB - can anyone help or ideas please?

My son got a vivitar vs18b camera. The packaging says Mac compatible but when we put the image zone disk in nothing happens. I've tried clicking on the 2 files after opening the disk icon and nothing happens. I tried the Vivitar Website and found no solutions. One spot had to download the "experience software". I got a link to a blank page. Any ideas how to get the pictures from the camera to our Mac?
