    Hello everyone,

    I have a problems with my macbook air and my camera. When I plug my Canon 40d using the usb cable, it does not seem to be recognised and I can't view my pictures.

    Does anyone have the same problem?

    Thanks!

    Canon cameras typically don't show up as disk drives on the Desktop. Use Image Capture and it should see it.

    You can also use iPhoto which comes with the computer (under Applications). There is also a program called Aperture which is available on the Mac App Store which has extra features that can be quite useful. It is similar to Adobe Lightroom... both have lots of extra features which are especially helpful when working with RAW photos.

    Most DSLR now use a form of flash drive. It doesn't mount like a disc drive.. so you would need to open an application to see your images. I know it's crazy, especially when you try to update your camera.
