View Full Version : Problems with iPhoto and my S602

I am having problems with iPhoto and downloading pictures from my Fuji S602.

I have a 512k CF card in the camera. First off, when I connect the camera, I have not been able to transfer directly in iPhoto. This is not a problem as the camera appears as a drive on my Finder and I just copy the pictures into my photo library.

My main problem came today when I tried to download a video onto the desktop. When I plugged in the camera, iPhoto immediately launched and hung. I waited a bit and killed iPhoto. Whenever I tried to do anything in the finder ( copy the file to the desktop, "eject" the camera/drive ) the finder also hung. After about five minutes of waiting I killed the finder; however, it did not properly die and restart until I unplugged the camera.

If the camera is unplugged in this way the camera reports "Card not Initialized" so I cannot erase the video file that way to see if the size is a problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Can I make it so iPhoto does not automatically launch when I plug in the camera? This may eliminate one of my problems!

Thanks!

Hi! I think I fixed my problem - I'm using Image Capture as my download SW and was able to "set" which SW launched on attachment of a camera from it's preferences. The problem seems to be with iPhoto... Without it running I can download, eject the device, etc.

Kind of solved this myself ( so proud of me! ) but thanks to anyone who looked at this, thought of something, etc.

Thanks! Yep. Open 'Image Capture' and set the preferences to NOT open iPhoto when camera is plugged in.

OOPS. I just noticed that you found your solution.
