    A friend has a Lumix FX8 (I think). When she connects it to her Mac iPhoto recognises it and imports the photos. But iPhoto doesn't "know" the camera. If she disconnects the camera before "ejecting" it OS X gives an error-message.

    Couldn't find a proper driver.

    She told me, that there is no driver on the CD which came with the camera.

    Any solution to avoid the error-message?



    thx

    how do you want iphoto to "know" the camera?

    example:

    When I connect my Canon Ixus iPhoto lists the Ixus as a source. When I unplug the Ixus or turn the camera off iPhoto/OS X doesn't give me an error message.

    I guess iPhoto/OS X "knows" that the source is a camera and doesn't handle it like it handles an external storage (external drive, SD card, etc.).

    Ejecting the camera first isn't really a chore is it?

    It would be nice if you don't have to eject it first. It is a bit annoying.

    certain camera makes the memory act like a storage, others don't... it's not something iphoto does

    you camera might have an option to switch, if not, reject the darn thing already, it's not that big of an deal

    not satisfying, but she will survive.
