    My second post....

    Hi everyone... I guess I am what you call a "switcher". Although I didn't really need to switch at all. I always had my options open and I used all computers and never had a bias towards one or the other. But after 2 years of dealing with a W2K/NT4 network for the federal government...I got fed up. I sold my Dell 8250 machine (nice machine but same old Windows crap problems) I got this past April and got myself a iMac 1.25 G4 with the 17" widescreen. I have not been happier. My wife got her 12" powerbook 2 weeks ago. We sold our G3 clamshell to get it.

    The PC and microsoft crap are finally out of my house. I'm rambling on but..... YESSSS THE EVIL IS GONE. If now I could just convince the military to swtich over here at work... I can be just as happy as I am at home. If anyone here can figure out how to get my digital camera CD to mount in my new iMac...I would be even happier :)

    Well I hope to learn the lingo you guys use here on the board and I look forward to the discussions. I'm glad I found this one.

    *passes the Kool-Aid around...* :)

    What kind of digital camera is it? Can you download whatever you need off of the appropriate companies website?

    By golly I believe you're right... I think you only need 10 people to start one... that was the threshold last time I tried to start one anyhow...

    I found a document by apple on it.... thatks to those who read my problem.... This mentions it affects only 10.2 and later...does this mean it worked previously? Also do you think Panther will have the finder capable of reading the UDF used by sony?:

    Symptom

    When you insert a CD formatted by a Sony Mavica digital camera into the computer, the disc does not appear on the desktop or in a Finder window.

    Products affected

    Mac OS X 10.2 and later
    Sony Mavica CDs

    Solution

    The Sony Mavica CD is a formatted as a UDF disc. The Finder does not have a feature to read certain types of UDF discs. Here is a workaround:
    1. Insert the CD into the camera.
    2. If your camera uses Picture-Transfer-Protocol (PTP), ensure the camera is in that mode.
    3. Connect the camera to your Mac.
    4. Open iPhoto, if necessary.
    5. Import the photos from the camera.

    This document will be updated when additional information is available.

    There's no poison in the kool-aid... just a special ingredient... but we can't tell you what it is... ;)

    I'll bet it will disrupt my input/output carrier signal causing me to awake in a pod of pinkish goo in a tower with enormous arcs of electricity about.
