    I desparetely need help or clarification.

    I have a canon Powershot S200 and want to download pictures to my iMac, which has iPhoto 1.0 (without the current update).

    How do import pics? When I connect the camera (via wire) to a USB port iPhoto still says "No camera attached".

    What do I do??

    Please help.

    Simon

    downloading from S200

    your camera is not yet compatible with OS X and since iPhoto only runs on OS X I think the only way out is to buy a card reader with USB connection.

    they are actually very cheap so that shouldn't be a big problem.

    go to PowerShot.com
    they have a USB Mounter for OS 9.0-9.2
    but I can't see how this may help you since iPhoto is on OS X

    anyhow....have a look yourself :)

    If or when your camera is compatible you may still run into this problem form time to time.
    a - pull out the USB cable for a few seconds then reattach it. OR
    b - turn the camera off and then turn back on. OR
    c - restart the computer or log out and back in.

    My camera is compatible and I still have to try one or more of these pretty often.

    Could someone comment about whether he can import his photos using Image Capture?

    Ok, here is a simple question.

    Does anyone know an OS-X compatable CompactFlash card reader??

    Thanks

    I use the SanDisk ImageMate for my CF card - plugs right ino my keyboard. Cost about $20 at Circuit City. Not sure how it does with iPhoto, as I haven't tried importing photos yet, but it works just great with Image Capture. HTH.
