    This may be in the wrong section but it may be an Mac OS problem

    In the last 3 months I have been having problems transfering photos from my Nikon Coolpix E7900 to my imac G5 Powerpc. I thought it may be the camera or the cable. I have since updated the camera software on the camera and on my imac. No success.

    I tried transfering from my camera to my work PC and had no problems. I now know it is due to the imac. yesterday a friend said he has problems with his canon camera and his imac.

    I then put the photos on a memory stick to put on my imac. When transfering from the stick the same thing happened. I tried the other USB slots and they were all the same.

    The problem is that the transfer starts and then blocks. It can block after 3 photos or 30 but usually the first attempt blocks later than further attemps.

    Please help

    What app are you using to work with the photos? If you're using iPhoto, then try using Image Capture instead. :)
