Can't import from ipod to Mac OSx10.6.8

In iPhoto, it says, "there are no items to import" when I have my iPod (ios 6.1.6) connected with a USB.  I have a Mac OSx 10.6.8 with iPhoto 6.0.6.  Last night, when I attempted to import the photos, the correct photos were flashing on screen as they imported, but then, what looked like simple clipart began flashing in an endless cycle. iPhoto froze up and I had to force quit. I tried it again and the same thing happened. Then, this morning, it now says there are no items to import. When I first open iPhoto, a window appeared saying, "1050 photos have been found in the iPhoto Library folder that were not imported". I'm not sure if I should try this because of the clipart.
What I need to be able to do on a regular basis is import photos so that I can upload them onto my work website as efficiently as possible with what I have.  Can someone please help me!  Thank you.

Well efficiently is always going to be an issue with software that's not updated in eight years.
Try these in order - from best option on down...
1. Do you have an up-to-date back up? If so, try copy the library6.iphoto file from the back up to the iPhoto Library allowing it to overwrite the damaged file.
2. Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In early versions of Library Manager it's the File -> Rebuild command. In later versions it's under the Library menu.)
This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.
Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.
3. If neither of these work then you'll need to create and populate a new library.
To create and populate a new *iPhoto 6* library:
Note this will give you a working library with the same Rolls and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, modified versions, books, calendars etc.
Move the iPhoto Library to the desktop
Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.
Go into the iPhoto Library on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Roll Folders to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.
When you're sure all is well you can delete the iPhoto Library on your desktop.
In the future, in addition to your usual back up routine, you might like to make a copy of the library6.iPhoto file whenever you have made changes to the library as protection against database corruption.

    If you have any iTMS purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. A paragraph on it has been added to this article: Transfer iTunes Store purchases using iPod
    The transfer of non iTMS content such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there is a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs back to iTunes on Windows. The procedure is a bit involved and was written long before iTunes 7 so it requires a little adaptation, also it won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's posted in this thread: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    If you prefer something more automated then there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. This is just a selection, you'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos and games as well. Have a look at the web pages and documentation, they are generally quite straightforward. You can also read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes

    Office for Mac, http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products, can open/edit/create Office documents.If your external drive is formatted NTFS then you can copy the Office documents to your computer and work on them. You won't be able to save the files back to your NTFS formatted drive. But you will be able to save the documents to your internal drive. You can move all the external files to your internal drive then format the external drive for Apple. Then you can copy the files back to your external drive for ongoing use.

    Is Apple compatible with Microsoft Office?
    Any computer is compatible as long as it can read and write Office files. But for perfect (or at least near perfect) compatibility, you would want to purchase Office 2011 for Mac.
    How can I transport from Windows to Mac?
    You can't directly transport any installation of Windows. All PC's come with a machine specific version of Windows intended for that PC. They don't have all of the hardware drivers the retail disks cover.
    If you want Windows on your Mac, you would first purchase a full version copy (NOT an upgrade disk) of Windows 7 or 8. Those are the only supported versions on newer Macs. You install it through the supplied Boot Camp utility that comes with the Mac to create a new partition for Windows, and then install the retail copy of Windows you purchased.
    The reason only these versions of Windows are supported is the same basic reason as a machine specific version of Windows for a PC. Apple only includes the necessary Mac hardware drivers for Win 7 or 8 on new Macs.
    Once Windows is installed, you could then install the version of Office for Windows you already own. The nuisance of a Boot Camp partition is that you have to physically boot to either Windows or OS X, so you can only use the apps of the OS you're in at the time. To use both at once, you'd have to use virtual machine software (Parallels, VMware, VirtualBox) and then install Windows within that. Then you'd be able to run Windows inside of OS X and have access to both at the same time.

    I have bought a Sandisk 8gb memory stick but can't import from iphoto onto it...help???

    No I haven't formatted it, but don't really know how to either? I am a bit of a newbie at this and thought i just had to buy any memory stick and it would work. can you suggest how to format it for FAT32 ( I don't know what this is either ) as I will be using the memory stick for windows also at a later date.
    Thanks for your reply

  • Can't import from Cannon HV20.

    I can't import from my Cannon HV20. The camera does not show up as an external camera. I just get the message "to import video, please connect a camera". I get the same message when connecting to my laptop and I have tried two different firewire cables. I have gone through the settings on the camera and I don't see anything that would prevent it. I have the camera in play mode and powered on. I have successfully imported from this camera many times. This started yesterday when I plugged the camera in while using ichat and ichat crashed. I suspect the firewire connection on the camera is damaged.
    Any ideas?

    I have the same problem with a different camera.
    I have used my Sony TRV27 Handycam in making movies primarily with iMovie 6.0.3 on my former G5. It did record from the camera to iMovie 7.1.4 on my Intel core 2 but now can't get in to import to either program 6.0.3 or 7.1.4. It will not recognize that the camera is attached or switch the camera icon to camera mode. If it does it only shows Built in iSight or Time Lapses.
    I prefer to use the older iMovie camera because of the options and familiarity of it. I do not care for the newer iMovie program format.
    I went to the system profiler as suggested and found firewire but have no idea what the Firewire Device Tree looks like nor did I see anything on the right except Firewire Bus speed.
    I have been using the cord from Sony in the past to import movies. My computer does not show the camera even though in Finder/Preferences connected services are checked to show up on the desk top.
    I phoned Apple Care today and got virtually no help. The gentleman kept saying it was the camera that was at fault. Or it was the ? slot in the computer that wasn't working. They both work. I checked. I see by posts a lot of other camera owners are having similar problems.

  • Can't import from Sony XDCAM memory card to FCP 6

    I can't import from Sony XDCAM memory card to FCP 6.01 HD. Am using Macbook Pro, 2 gig of RAM. This is my first time NOT using tape. I can copy the files off the memory card onto an external drive (to free up the card for pro crew's next day's shoot), but can't import either to FCP. Do I need to convert the files in some way before FCP can read them? Need to fix this problem fast as the crew are off to Nepal for 2 week shoot.

    Laura,
    First, I'm assuming that you're referring to the XDCAM EX. You'll need to install the FCP 6.0.2 upgrade, which contains the XDCAM EX codecs.
    Second, You'll need to install the PDZK-P1 Transfer Application, and use that to import your EX clips into FCP. I just noticed that there is a new version available, 2.5.1 which is labeled specifically for Tiger/Leopard. I haven't tested this version yet, and will report back on any stability issues. We're currently running version 2.1.1, without many issues.

  • Can't import from LR 3 to PSE 10

    Installed Photoshop Elements 10 and can't import from LR 3 for external editing. Any suggestions? I've already tried deleting the LR and PSE .plist files.

    So basically I uninstalled Photoshop Elements 10 trial version. I uninstalled LR4 upgrade version. After reading about all the on line grief that people have been having with LR4, why go there? Sounds like more hype with a wopping side order of hooey. Did the online text conversation with Adobe support person prior to logging on to this forum and his only suggestion was call tech support Monday. Uninstalled and reinstalled LR 3.6. Uninstalled and reinstalled PS CS3. Everything works perfectly like it did before. Why or why did I waste  all my time with supposedly compatible upgrades? First time I've really been disappointed with Adobe. Hope it's the last.
