    Sorry if this seems a silly question, but I bought a new Lumix G camera and when I upload my photos to my Mac air book the camera shows up as NO NAME.
    Is there any way I can name it?
    Thanks all

    Hi Anita...

    Just a suggestion...if you make your title a bit more informative, you will likely get more useful information, and will save those who can't help the time of reading you question.:D

    What shows up on your screen is the name your CAMERA gave the SD card in said camera. It is, for whatever reason, typical that they show up as 'no name'. Generally you can rename everything on a Mac by selecting it and hitting the return/enter key once… type in the new name you want the item to have… and hit return/enter again.
    It doesn't matter whether they are files, folders, or even external drives.

    The only problem that might theoretically crop up is, that your camera might not like the new name of the sd card… and subsequently not find it. In which case you could simply re-name it again.

    Oh and… one little piece of advice:
    You're looking at your screen right now reading this message. Please look a liiiiittle bit further down. There it reads your computer's name. It's a MacBook Air. Not a Mac Air Book. I don't wanna be nitpicky here… but there are a bunch of people who would potentially make fun of you for that. After all you don't drive a Pickup Ford Truck F-150 either…
