    Recently whenever I import the photos from my Canon Powershot SD450 it isn't asking if I want to delete all the pics from the camera after the import, I just click the import button and it starts importing without the dialogue, so I have to manually delete them from my camera each time. It used to ask, does anyone know why this could be happening?

    Don't know why its happening, but based on many posts on several forums, you should probably be glad it does not delete. Have read many posts where folks have said they set iPhoto to delete from the camera, and then found that they had not imported into iPhoto, so their pics were lost for good. I'd rather import into iPhoto, check to make sure all is well and then delete from my camera manually.

    What version of iPhoto?

    And just to make sure... you do have the checkbox ("Delete photos after importing" or something like that) next to the Import button checked, right? ;) I don't think it will ask you otherwise.
