    I am cross-posting from Mac Applications forum after I received no responses there (probably should have posted here first).

    From the sound of it. iPhoto should do what you want. Almost. That is because a memory cars looks to Mac OS just like a disk drive. So iPhoto will not react to it. If you plug a camera in then iPhoto will "see" a camera and react.

    As for renaming the files. You just have to get used to the comcept of a "photo library" and let iPhoto (or Aperture or any of the others) manuage you collection based on medta data. using folder stuctures is just so "1990's". All the current system manage your files like book in a public library. the books have funny numbers on them but there are three of more card catalogs and each book might have several cards in the various catalogs.
