    When I plug my DSLR into my new MacbookPro it doesn't show on Desktop like my previous Macbook. I have to go through iPhoto which is becoming a pain. Is there a way to resolve this.
    I also inserted a DVD yesterday and tried to locate it, but again it didn't show on desktop. I had to spotlight DVD player. Now I have put DVD payer in Dock but would like it to show on Desktop.

    Any ideas?

    If it's a Canon DSLR this is normal. Use Image Capture.

    No this is a Lumix GF2. It worked fine on my 2007 X3100 Macbook. Same goes when a Disc is put in, nowhere to be found on the desktop.
