Don't know why I can not download picture from my 50D camera or compac flash reader to my iMac. Been downloaded to pc without any problem.

Thank you,
Are you running Mountain Lion? It was a problem with that OS?
Are you seeing the card mount as a drive? When I plug in camera or card it mounts as a drive.
If you're camera also is not mounting then I would check the port with another device.
Thank you for your replies. I haven't been back here for while. I have to open it by iPhoto then I am able to see the images.
This may be a problem with you flash reader. I've had one or two poor quality flash readers that could not read my cards. I now have a few pretty good readers that have never had a problem.

I've never had a Mac OS X operating system version that had a problem. But if you shoot RAW the Mac needs to have the Camera RAW updates for the camera you are using (Apple makes this part of their automatic updates -- so if your Mac's OS is kept up to date then you already have the Camera RAW update needed to read the RAW file from a 50D.
Thank you Tim. I didn't shoot RAW. Maybe I need to get a good flash card readers. Which one are you using?
