    What camera do you have?

    If your camera/memory card it attached via USB, does it show up as a removable disk on your desktop?

    Drag and drop the pics back to the sd card. It should show up like a flash stick.

    All Canons in the last few years use a method for file transfer that means they do not show up as removable disks. You need to use a memory card reader...

    If Bluetooth is supported on your camera, setup your Mac and camera to talk to each other wirelessly. People forget Bluetooth is bi-directional so you can "browse" each device independently and put/send files between each. Just another way of doing it, slower than Firewire, but it's an idea.

    That depends on the device: it has to implement the correct profile. Even if the device has flash storage there is no guarantee that this is possible: see the iPhone for example...
