Hi there,

I try to copy some pics from my camera to my MAC and this Warning message appears and doesn’t let me to copy them. If I click OK nothing happens and if I try again the same message appears. Does anyone have any idea why I cannot copy the pics on my MAC ?

Thanks !

This error appears because iPhoto has very strict rules concerning both supported media formats and directory organization. To fix this problem, do the following:

1. Open up iPhoto.

2. Click "Preferences" and look for "Connecting camera opens:" and set it to "No application"

Next time you connect the camera to your MAC, iPhoto will no longer appear. Instead, the camera will be shown as a disc image on your desktop. Open it and drag&drop your pictures to a folder on your MAC or use the menu commands Cut, Copy and Paste.
