    When I connect my A650is to the MacBook nothing happens. I don't get
    any sort of icon on the desktop and nothing appears int he Finder.
    I installed the software, and when I launch the EOS utility the icons
    are grayed out and I can't do anything.
    When I launch the Camera Window app it says it can't connect.
    When I plug it into my XP machine it pops up right away and I can browse
    the pics, so I know the camera is working fine.
    I can use a USB jump drive in the MacBook's USB ports so I know they are
    working correctly.

  2. Are you updating your software regularly? On my main Mac all cameras are
    recognised, but on an iBook that I hadn't updated for a while I had the
    same problem until I ran a series of updates.

    Go to Applications and open Image Capture. Go to Edit>Preferences. Image
    Capture Preferences window appears. Choose an application to open when
    you connect your camera. it's probably set to "No application."

    Hope this helps:)

    You're correct. Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is where the problem lies.
    I have connected many cameras without a hitch to Macs.

    Hi, thanks for replying, I tried the same cable on my XP machine and it
    works fine.
    (I only have one - I hope it doesn't walk)
    My Sony W70 works fine.

    Thanks for the helpful reply.
    I do have a card reader but sometimes it "walks" as in somebody takes
    and doesn't give it back for a few days. Yes, I'll splurge $3 for one
    on eBay when I get a chance. Until then.
