No, you don't need iLife 11. Without more details and further investigation it's impossible to say why installing it resolved some issues. I'd suspect permissions issues perhaps or another piece of software interrupting the process.

Things I'd try:
1. a different cable
2. repairing disk permissions
3. checking login items (system preferences - accounts) for third party photo import apps
4. using an app like PhotoSync to wirelessly transfer your photos to your Mac

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
