How to turn off "No camera was found" message

Every time I hook up a printer, ipod touch, camera, whatever, through my USB on my G3 imac, I get a message that says "No camera was found." When this message appears, a Canon camera application in the dock appears, which suggests that the message is from the Canon app (it also started happening just after using Canon app to download picts off my Canon camera). If I don't click "OK" in response to the message, it disappears and everything is fine. However, it is preventing the ipod touch from automatically opening iTunes for syncing (if iTunes is already open it syncs fine). Is there any way to stop this message from appearing and turning off whatever is causing it to appear? I've looked in the Canon apps I have and couldn't find any preference options that looked related.

Open Image Capture in Applications, go to preferences and then change the program that opens when a camera is connected to no application.

Me too

I'm getting the same problem too whenever my iPod Touch is connected. The "No Camera Was Found" error keeps popping up every 5 minutes or so. Very annoying if I'm trying to watch a movie.

The above fix doesn't work because there is no "preferences" option in Image Capture on Snow Leopard.

The error message is coming from Canon Camera Window, but I can't get into it's preferences either because if I click on it just get the "No Camera Was Found" message again and clicking "OK" to it closes the program.

Launch Image Capture, connect the camera and you should see the option in the lower left window of Image Capture.

I deleted Image Capture as it's not needed for my 5D's

I have EOS Utility on the dock and open that when I connect my cameras.

and thanks from here...

Even if it's a year later, your advice is still being used! I've been meaning to fix this for ages and didn't know how. Thanks.

It's not needed for a 5D, but it is needed for setting system-wide importing settings. These (and the ones that appear in Safari's, Mail's, and all of Apple's other apps' settings) should be in an Applications pane in System Preferences, but for now they're all independent

Still works

I had the problem in Mountain Lion and used this suggestion. It worked. Just a note, though, the preferences access is now just an icon and it is not the words preferences. Took me awhile to figure it out! thanks.

How do I set 'No Application' as the default for any devices I connect? (Even devices I've never attached before)
