Won't show camera or flash drive

I tried downloading my pictures from my camera on to my macbook and the icon wouldn't show.
I just tried it on my powerPC. Same thing. I find it in system profiler. When I switch USB ports, it switches in profiler. But I can't access the SD card.

On my macbook, I tried it in a SD card reader. Not found.
It use to come up on either machine as UNTITLED drive when I connected the camera.
On a IMAC, Canon Imaging software recognized the camera and I was able to download some of the contenet.

    Hi and welcome to Apple Discussions,
    Did you get the flash drive from a reliable source. There are some available on the net that show a large capacity but are only 512 mb. or 1 gb. drives that have been altered to display a much larger capacity.
    Good luck,

  • How do I transfer my iTunes TV shows to a flash drive?

    I am wanting to move a couple of TV series to one of my flash drives.  I've tried just copying the files over, but that doesn't work.  Any help and explainations would be appreciated.  Thank you.

    It will copy the tv shows to the flash drive but it will not play on windows media player. 
    What I was hoping for was the shows to be able to play in windows media player or some other type of media player if I wanted to use the flash drive on a separate computer that did not have iTunes installed.  But based on your reply the video content would not play on anything other that an iDevice.  Thank you for your help. 
    One more question though, if I do copy the media content would I be able to use the flash drive on another computer that has iTunes installed?

  • MacBook Pro won't boot, even using flash drive with OS

    I have a 2007 MacBook Pro that won't boot up past the gray screen.
    I connected it via Firewire to my iMac and the hard drive showed up without any problem.
    I ran DiskWarrior on the drive and rebuilt it. That didn't resolve the issue.
    I zeroed out the hard drive and tried to reinstall the operating system. My DVD drive no longer works so I created a bootable flash drive from the OS disc but when I try to boot that I get a screen with a checkerboard line down the middle (see image).
    Any idea what this could be?

    Could be a failing GPU/logicboard as you said the HD checked out.
    Take it in to an Apple Genius for a full diagnostic, they wil diagnose it for free, then give you your options. (make an appointment)l

  • Transferring images from camera or flash drive

    I am having problems with transferring images. When I plug in a flash drive or my camera to the USB port,nothing pops up on my desktop. I checked System Profiler, and it appears that the computer is recognizing the flash drive. So it must be a problem with the drive talking to the software, right?
    I went into Image Capture and set the preference for iPhoto to open when a camera is attached, but no go.
    This is a new problem - I have transferred images many times since getting the computer in March.

    When you make a User choice - such as 'Open iPhoto When a Camera is connected' it's recorded in the preference (or plist) file. That's what those files are. Trashing them will return the app to the default state. You can then re-select your choics. Corrupted plist files are a common cause of all sorts of issues and one of the basic troubleshooting steps for any app.

  • Macbook Pro won't book from USB flash drive

    I have a brand new Macbook Pro with the thunderbolt.  The internal hard drive works great and I can boot up from it just fine.  But we want to create an image on a USB flash drive that we can use when troubleshooting the other Macbook Pro's we have at the office.  So I got a 16 gb flash drive which should be big enough.  I ran the white Snow Leopard DVD and tried to put the OS on the USB flash drive.  When it tried to reboot on the Macbook Pro it got the error screen which some weird code and said that you computer needs to be restarted.  As long as the USB flash drive was connected it wouldn't boot.
    So I wanted to see if this was hardware specific so I tried it on an IMac.  I was able to create a OS X bootable USB Flash Drive and was able to boot the IMac with it with no trouble.  Having gotten ti to work on the IMac I tried it again on the Macbook Pro, still get the error screen when it tries to boot up.
    Is there anything special I need to do to get this to work?  It's crucial to our organization to get this to work.  Thanks.

    Hi R,
    You can always book it with you agent, don't you?
    Ok, sorry for that, getting on. Try to use Carbon Copy Cloner to create the copy.
    The issue can be related to USB devices and/or connectors, did you try other USB port? Do you have the same boot problem with other USB devices? The active USB connection preventing boot are frequently seen.
    Good luck, K.

  • Canon Vixia HF30 showing up as Flash drive, open iPhoto....FCP won't log/tr

    Help! I teach a media class and have had this happen before. Log and transfer won't recognize the camera (yes it is plugged in to power and usb 2.0) ...any ideas? I can see the MTS files, but don't want to waste hours converting them manually to .MOV

    Here's exactly how I explained it awhile back to someone else (and he said this worked for him):
    Try using Disk Utility to save your SD card (or camera hard drive if you have one) as a disk image. Then open the disk image and try Log and Transfer. FCP should see the disk image mounted on your desktop and import the files. This has always worked for me with AVCHD/.mts files. Plus, it gives you a nice small(ish) backup file of all your footage.

  • For some reason, my USB flash drive is being recognized as an external hard drive, is there any way to fix this?

    I think I used Disk Utility on this flash drive before and know it won't show that it's a flash drive, my other flash drives still show up as flash drives so is there anyway to fix this? I'm on Mac OS X 10.9.3.

    A workaround.
    If you would like to change the drive icon:
    - Under Finder right click on a flash drive and choose " Get Info  "
    - click on the disk icon at the top, from the desktop menu select Edit -> Copy
    - Under Finder right click on the problematic volume and choose " Get Info  "
    - click on the disk icon at the top, from the desktop menu select Edit -> Paste

  • Can I move only my iTunes movies, not my iTunes music, onto a flash drive? And, is there a program (apart from iTunes) that can play movies on MacBook Air?

    I have a MacBook Air and I need to free up space...
    1) I have three series of a tv show on my itunes which are taking up loads of memory - see image - I want to move these movie files onto a Flash Drive. However I do not want to move my itunes Music onto the flash drive, only my Movies, and want to keep my music on my hard drive.
    Is this possible?
    2) I have managed to copy the movie files onto the flash drive, however when I tried to play one to check that they were loaded properly it didn't have a program that could run the file (they have copied over in a m4V format). Do the MacBook Air's not have a separate program other than itunes that can play movies? If so, is there a program I can get to solve this problem? I went onto the App Store to see if there was something I could download, but all the apps were for creating DVD's, not simply playing them.
    3) If 1. & 2. questions are solvable, will it then be safe to delete the movies from my itunes?
    Thank you so much for any answers posted.

    If you can play the movies in iTunes, you should be able to open the movie files using Quicktime, which should already be on your system.  If you have already transferred the files to your flash drive, open the flash drive in Finder, and hold control when you click on the movie file (or right click if you have the enabled) and select Open With Quicktime Player.  This should play the movie directly from the flash drive. 
    If you want to set all .m4v files to open with Quicktime by just double clicking on the file, you can follow the steps here: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/2573/os_x_how_to_change_default_application_to_op en_file_type/
    3) If 1. & 2. questions are solvable, will it then be safe to delete the movies from my itunes?
    You can move the TV shows to your flash drive by dragging them from the iTunes window to your flash drive in Finder or the flash drive icon on the desktop.  When you are sure everything is transferred over to your external device, you can delete the movie from iTunes.  I recommend playing the videos from the flash drive first before deleting them in iTunes. 
    To delete the videos from iTunes, you can highlight them and press the delete key on your keyboard.  In the next prompt, you would want to move it to the trash so that it is deleted from your internal hard drive.  
    I hope that helps!

  • Unable to mount flash drive w/ OS 9.2.2 and Powerbook G3

    I've upgraded my G3 Pismo up to OS 9.2.2. However, the system won't mount a USB flash drive.
    Here's a breakdown of the problem(s):
    1) Insert flash drive, but flash drive won't appear on desktop.
    2) Check System Profiler, and system freezes.
    3) Remove flash drive from USB hub, and system unfreezes. System Profiler now has a listing for "Sandisk Cruzer Mini" in the USB -- even though the flash drive is no longer there.
    4) Check extensions. There is no USB Mass Storage Support extension. Download from Apple site, the USB Mass Storage Support 1.3.5 extension.
    5) Attempt to install this extension. Won't let me do it. Gives the message "This program cannot be run on your computer. See the documentation for details."
    6) Check documentation. I have the requisite system: Powerbook G3 and OS 9.2.2.
    7) Attempt to reinstall OS 9.2.2, as perhaps that might fix the problem.
    8) Cannot re-install OS 9.2.2. Gives the message: "The application program 9.2.2.smi etc. cannot be opened because an error of type -39 occurred."
    9) Clueless at this point.

    Hi, BGBchewy -
    Re the USB Mass Storage Support item, the ReadMe that accompanies it and comprises the info on the download page states -
        Mass Storage Support 1.3.5 requires Mac OS 8.6. You do not need to install this software if you have installed Mac OS 9."
    Ditto the later version of that software, USB Adapter Card Support 1.4.1.
    This user Tip may provide the assistance you need -
    Re the -39 error and the OS 9.2.2 download update, that error is most commonly caused by Stuffit Expander intruding where it should not. The download is in a .smi (self-mounting image) format, a format generated by Apple's Disk Copy. Stuffit Expander has ShrinkWrap technology built-in, which allows it to mount some kinds of disk images - but not .smi ones. Yet ShrinkWrap tries to - hence the error message.
    The solution - double-click Stuffit Expander, and open its Preferences (under the File menu). Select "Disk Images" from the list on the left, then turn off (uncheck) "Mount Disk Images". Quit Stuffit Expander.

  • Sequencing images in iphoto slideshow for photo frame playback via flash drive

    I have created a slide show in iphoto and saved it to a flash drive.  I want the show to play in a particular sequence.  On the computer that works.  When playing the show via the flash drive on my Pandigital Photo Frame, however, the images randomize.  The images have numbered filenames, and the shuffle function on the photo frame is turned off.  What do I need to do differently?

    When I connected the frame to the computer, no photo files showed, not even when I added the flash  drive to the frame.
    The sequence of the files on the flash drive is numerical, just what I am after.  Something seems to be happening within the frame.  In addition, while I have placed no files into the frame's internal memory, and none show up, when I play the slideshow, files that I once had in the slideshow file but later deleted, still appear!? 

  • Problem Copying to USB Flash Drive

    I have a 2GB USB Flash Drive and successfully copied about 100 JPEGS (61 MB) by dragging them from iPhoto onto the flash drive.
    I cannot drag any more photos. I get a message "not enough free space." However, if I go to "Get Info," it shows that the flash drive has a capacity of 1.86 GB; available space of 1.8 GB; and used space of 61 MB. Thus, there is plenty of space left on the drive.
    Still, it will not accept any additional files – "not enough space available." What gives?
    Thank you

    It's likely that the Flash Drive is FAT32 formatted and you are exceeding the number of files allowed at the root level of the drive. Try creating a folder(s) on the drive and putting the photos in it (them).

  • Lexar flash drive won't show up on Macbook Air?

    I've been using my Lexar Twist turn flash drive on my Macbook Air for a while now and it has been working perfectly. The last time I've used it without trouble was around May - June. Just recently I plugged my flash drive in and it didn't pop up... as if nothing was inserted. I've plugged it into my PC as well and it worked fine. I've tried checking the disk utility but it didn't show up in there either. Help.
    My Macbook Air is an OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 if that helps...

    Do a backup.
    Go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J.  When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder.  Select Library. Then go to Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist and com.apple.finder.plist.  Move the .plists to your desktop.
    Re-launch Finder by restarting and test. If it works okay, delete the plists from the desktop.
    If the same, return the .plists to where you got it  from, overwriting the newer one.
    Thanks to leonie for some information contained in this. 

  • USB flash drive won't mount

    I have a strange problem with a USB flash drive which refuses to mount on the desktop of my MDD FW800. It registers in System Profiler but not in Disk Utility. I can't get it to mount using Terminal either. The Terminal screen says it has mounted but it doesn't appear on the desktop and I can't access it. However, if I do a restart with the the drive plugged in, it does mount. If I eject it and then try to plug it in again, it won't mount! Very frustrating.
    It works fine on my Powerbook and my Digital Audio so it can't be the drive itself that's the problem. Not quite sure when this started but it may have been after I installed a PCI USB2.0 card (a Ratoc Rex-PCIU3). The card itself works fine with other USB products and I don't have any deep sleep problems with it either. I'm stumped.
    Any suggestions anyone?

    Hello rickame
    Click on the desktop then go up to the menu bar and select Finder / Finder Preferences / General and make sure the box's are checked for Hard disk, External disks, etc.. then reconnect the drive. If you still don't see it on the desktop it may have been improperly disconnected from the iMac while mounted, look to see if it show's up in Disk Utilities and the System Profiler on the USB bus. If you are plugging it into the keyboard, try one of the USB ports on the back of the iMac or a powered hub. There also could be a conflict with other USB devices, try ejecting and disconnect things like an iPod, a printer/scanner or camera, then restarting the iMac and connect only the Flash drive.
