    I'm trying to upload images from two different digital cameras and both of them aren't appearing on my desktop. When I try and connect through the two different software apps i get the same message - no camera found. Any ideas as to what be my trouble? I haven't loaded anything new lately and I've used these camera before on my PowerBook. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    In a Hell predominately of my own making
    Are you sure you mean the desktop? I have never had one show up there (and I just toggled both desktop and sidebar Finder prefs to show everything to make sure). None of my cameras--USB or FW--ever showed up as a desktop or sidebar item.

    By default, plugging in and powering up a camera should launch iPhoto (or Aperture), unless you've deselected that preference. What're the apps you're trying to use?

    They won't show up on your desktop under normal circumstances.

    What are:

    1. The make and models of the cameras.

    2. The software you've tried with them.

    Open up iphoto to see if its there, or go into the camera's prefs and see if there is a disk mode option or a storage device option, or something like that.
