I just purchased a Nikon d7100 for photography class. My teacher has the class shooting in jpeg+ RAW. My problem begins with connecting my nikon to my MacBook. I plug my micro USB into my camera > plug USB into MacBook > turn camera "ON". I can't seem to find my Nikon as mounted (like a flash drive, external HDD, or my Sanyo Xacti do). BUT when I open iPhoto, low and behold, my Nikon appears in iPhoto. Thoughts on why my camera is not mounting to the desktop like my flash drive and HDD do? Second problem is when I "import all." Mind you I shot in Jpeg and RAW formats. Meaning, when I shot 45 pictures today, I should be uploading 90 photos when I import all. But it doesn't... All 45 RAW files are not accepted/recognized by iPhoto and/or my MacBook. So as of now, all I have are my 45 jpeg photos on my flash drive to take to class... Thoughts/ suggestions? Yesterday I uploaded a hundred photos (only the Jpegs were accepted) and I deleted all the photos on my camera, so I lost all the RAW formatted photos. Lesson learned. This time, however, until I find out why the RAWs are not transferring to my laptop, I am not clearing my SD card in the camera. I do need to clear it ASAP because I have a video shoot tomorrow evening, and I need all the space I can have. Thanks for any and all would-be help! Regards, B.
