Every time I come back from holiday I have problems with this Photo system. I have been using the same camera for years and have never had trouble importing photos or movies. This time I get a message telling me that the file type of my movie is unrecognisable.


The following file could not be imported. It is in an unrecognised format.
/Volumes/Untitled/DCIM/101MSDCF/MOV04886.THM


It is in the same format it has always been in, unless that is m camera can change it without me knowing. I have not used a new card or changed anything at all about my camera.

anybody any ideas please
thanks

garigoun, I'll take a stab at this! Are you trying to import into "PHOTOS" or "iPHOTO"? And are you importing pictures or video? What kind of Mac do you have, the operating system. What kind of camera do you have? I'll try to help you if I can.

Hi carl. Thanks for the reply. I'm running an iMac 27" 1TB and 16Mb memory. on El Capitan. I've had trouble with Photo since I upgraded from iPhoto. I tried to import both pictures and videos. The video would not even show on PHOTO and I got the message as above. The pictures came up as thumbnails but th import command was greyed out and when i selected the individual pictures they became greyed out too. I've been messing about with it sinceIposted my question. Finally yesterday I tried to import them into iPHOTO. Result, perfect,both pictures and video went in no trouble. So I'm giving up on PHOTO. Again thanks for your reply though.

I always use Image Capture to import and videos or images into my MBP. This way I have a copy of the file I can find in Finder, if I need or want to. Then it is simply a matter of adding the file to whichever app is appropriate.

On my MBP, videos automatically go into the 'Videos' album in Photos. Have a look there.

Hi B.D.H., I looked in the video file and they are not in there. Really fed up with PHOTO, everybody else thinks it's great but I've had no end of trouble with it. Thanks for the reply though.

We should start a club: RSPiP - Royal Society for the Protection of iPhoto :)

You can delete the file, if you do not need the meta data attached for the video file. See here, http://www.learningvideo.com/thm-file-extension/
