As of a few days ago, I can no longer import photos from my Nikon Coolpix s7c into iPhoto. Never before had a problem. (it is the version prior to iPhoto 11--all Apple software is UTD)

As of a few days ago, I can no longer import photos from my Nikon Coolpix s7c into iPhoto '08. Never before had a problem.  I sent a request to Nikon for help and they referred me back to Apple.  Help, if possible, please.

As the photos imported to the test library you know that it works with your version of iPhoto (so, you can skip the paranoia about Apple making you upgrade). The issue then is the Library, so
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 (Right Click -> Show Package Contents) allowing it to overwrite the damaged file.
2. Download <a href=""><b><u>iPhoto Library Manager</b></u></a> and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords 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 08* library:
Note this will give you a working library with the same Events and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, modified versions, books, calendars etc.
In the iPhoto Preferences -> Events Uncheck the box at 'Imported Items from the Finder'
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 (Right Click -> Show Package Contents) on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Event 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.

  • Lightroom 4.4 can no longer import photos from my iPod Touch 5

    I've been importing photos from my iPod via USB without problems for over 6 months. In the last few days, importing from this device slowed down significantly. As of yesterday, the program freezes completely when I try to import (although it had worked earlier - albeit slowly - during that same session.)
    I've tried:
    Restarting the program, computer, and iPod.
    Closing all other programs.
    Removing all other external devices from the computer.
    Uninstalling the computer's USB hubs and restarting.
    Deleting all videos from the iPod's camera roll.
    Reducing the size of the camera roll (down to 650 from about 800).
    Nothing has worked.
    I'm still able to import fine from other sources (an external hard drive & a memory card).
    Weirdly, I plugged in my husband's iPod Touch - which until then had never been used in Lightroom - and it also froze at import, so it seems to be a problem with the type of device rather than the device itself.
    I'm running Windows 8 64-bit with 3.3 GHz Intel processor and 6 GB RAM.

    I too had a problem. iTunes wouldn't sync any photos nor list my iPhoto Albums.
    I created a second iPhoto library and then added some photos and created several albums to see if iTunes could see the new iPhoto library. It did see the new library. I then started to add photos to it. I finally found the offending files - 4 .avi files - that for some reason when added to the library caused iTunes to balk. I removed the files and all is well. I even have other .avi files in the original library and iTunes responds normally - just those 4 caused the problem.

  • Help! I can no longer import photos from iPhoto to Aperture 3 or iPhone

    Please help, I have a fully updated Aperture 3, iTunes 9 and iPhone 3G. I arrange my pic's in events in iPhoto and they are all accessible there, at my last iphone sync I noticed that my phone was deleting all my pictures of my iPhone, so I stopped the sync prematurely. Now when I try and import photo's, the event is listed but it states there are no pictures there.
    The only thing I can think that I did is "consolidate masters for library" in aperture. I kept photo's "in there current location". Is there anyway to reverse this so I can put my photo's back on my phone??

    I'm not sure about reversing the process you've described, but you can set up the equivalent structure (make albums in place of your iPhoto events) and use iTunes to synch your iPhone to Aperture instead of iPhoto. If you've decided to do your main work in Aperture this would perhaps be the best way forward.

  • I can no longer import videos from my canon vixia HFS100 into imovie 09

    I have had my canon HFS100 for about 6 months. It is listed in the camcorders supported by imovie 09. It worked great but after the last imovie update the camcorder is no longer recognized by imovie. APPLE please fix this bug now!!!! It worked before the update now it doesn't ***. APPLE support please respond to my post with a status on what to do. I see many post about this similar problem.

    I strongly believe your AVCHD file structure is corrupt. Or at least no longer compatible with iMovies understanding of how the structure should be. The camera will continue to work, but iMovie will no longer recognise it. I dont think this is a bug in imovie, iMovie is just not user-friendly in this respect, as it does not to tell the user about the problem.
    After salvaging your footage, you should re-format your memory card to make iMovie accept it again.

  • I upgraded to Yosemite and can no longer import photos from my camera

    I have a Canon Eos Rebel SLR Digital Camera (Model DS6041).  It has always worked perfectly with iPhoto on my iMac running Maverick.  I upgraded to Yosemite yesterday and now when I plug the camera in...iPhoto opens...and it shows the camera listed in the pane on the left but in the upper right hand corner of the main photo window it just continually says "Loading".  I plugged it into my wife's Macbook Air which was also upgraded yesterday morning and it did the same thing.  In order to make sure it was a problem with Yosemite and not my camera...I plugged it into my dad's Macbook Air which HASN'T been upgraded.  It is still running Maverick.  His Macbook immediately recognized the photos and loaded them and was ready for me to import.  Does anyone know what is going on with the Yosemite upgrade and if it is being looked at?  Thank you.

    Have you guys tried this?...  It worked for me
    I called Canon and they said to change a setting on the camera and for me it worked.  They said to go to the settings menu and go to communication... on my camera there are two choices... Normal (PC) and PTP.  Mine was set to normal and always worked fine.  After the Yosemite no longer worked.  Yesterday I changed it to PTP and the pictures popped right up.  Hopefully you have similar settings in your camera and can try this...

  • Can I save my photos from my Nikon Coolpix AWS 120 camera to my camera roll on my ipad over wifi without using any type of adapter but only using wifi?

    Can I use my ipad mini and my wifi camera to save my photos on my ipad without using an adapter and only using wifi? If so. How

    Not unless you import them to your computer first, then sync with iTunes over WiFi, but I suspect that sort of defeats the purpose.
    Just use the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter to connect your camera directly, or alternatively, the SD Card Adapter.

  • Can no longer sync Photos from Airport Disk

    I can no longer sync photos from my Airport Disk to my tv.
    This used to work fine- When I first got the tv I checked the "sync photos from" option in the photos tab in iTunes, navigated to my network drive/ pictures folder and hit sync. The photos slowly copied over.
    Just this week however, I went to add some new pictures and iTunes/ tv no longer sync. The status bar just spins saying "Syncing"...I have left it overnight with no change.
    I have recently updated to the latest version of iTunes and Airport Extreme firmware, but that is about it in terms of changes/updates. Anyone have any ideas?
    - Firewall is off
    - Permissions seem ok on the Airpot Disk. Everything is read/write
    - I have rebooted/ reset/ re-synced everything. It just hangs on Photos. Music etc go over fine.
    iMac G5 PowerPC
    Airport Extreme N base station with OWC USB drive attached as airDisk
    tv 1.0 40 gig - using ethernet connection to router
    iTunes 7.4.2
    I am really stumped! I think that the airport disk permissions or mount are still suspect but dont know what else to check.
    Does iTunes spit out a log or write to the console? Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I think I have figured it out, and photos are syncing now.
    Here is what I believe happened: There is an iTunes generated folder called "iPod Photo Cache" in my "Pictures" folder on my Airpot Disk. This folder gets generated by iTunes whenever you designate a location for syncing. The "iPod Photo Cache" folder contains a file called "Photo Database".
    It looks like the "Photo Database" had been corrupted. Deleting this file, or alternatively, moving my pictures to a new folder and letting iTunes regenerate the Photo Database fixed the problem.

    You were probably using the Release Candidate version of camera raw 8.7, which one gets from Adobe Labs.

    Don't know if it is just a coincidence, but problem arose after installing a new wi fi printer

    There are apps such as Simple Transfer which allow you to transfer photos to/from your iPad and your computer via your wifi network - they will copy into the Camera Roll album in the Photos app on your iPad

    Rotation Lock
    Rotation Lock prevents the iPad display from switching between portrait and landscape mode. While Screen Rotation Lock is enabled, the following occurs:
    The display remains in landscape or portrait mode, regardless of how iPad is held.
    The Rotation Lock icon appears in the status bar.
    A padlock appears in the rotation lock button (viewable when you flick to the left on the recently used apps list, after double-clicking the Home button).

  • Mail sends messages in the name of one of my contacts not me,this happened a few days ago I can't find where to change it back

    a few days ago when I send a message from mail or reply to a message it does so in the name of one of my contacts not me. what do I change to get rid of this problem?

    I found the same issue. I went into my yahoo email and did a search for duplicate addresses. Most of those type emails were spam and I think maybe they hacked into my contacts. Once I removed that person the issue was solved. You could add the person again after the issue is resolved.

  • HT4623 I can no longer send photos from my Iphone 4G. Also not receiving any photos sent by family members. I did the reset of the entire phone & restored from Icloud backup still having same issue.

    I can no longer send pictures from my I phone 4Gs, It's been updated & I reset the entire phone & restored. Still having same issues. Also not receiving pictures anymore either.

    Ah yes school boy error there out of frustration and discontent..
    My issue is with music/apps/films etc not downloading from iTunes / App Store.
    They initially fail and message is displayed stating unable to download / purchase at this time, yet if I retry it says I've already purchased (?) or alternatively I go to the purchased section and there they are waiting with the cloud symbol..
    However some items get frozen in the download window and cannot be retried or deleted. Message appears stating to tap to retry, but even if you stole every bath and sink in the uk you'd still not have enough taps.
    I post here as the iTunes guys are useless in there 'help' and have only advised posting here or phoning apple, at my expense, to explain a problem that could be rectified by forwarding my original email to a techie. However the tech team apparently don't have an email address as they're from ye olde Middle Ages..!
    Anyways I digress.
    So I tried sync to pc, but instead of showing the file as ready to listen/use/view, the iCloud symbol shows and I'm back to square one as the item is unable to download..
    At frustration station waiting for a train from pain...
    All my software is up to date, and had all worked fine prior to the last big iOS update that resulted in all the changes in display and dismay.
    Answers in a postcard :-)
    Much love
