Then it says “not responding” when I open “Force Quit.”

I was importing pics from my iPhone when my iPhone started syncing and the iMac began auto-updating. Did this cause the glitch? How can I access iPhoto? I cannot access any pulldown menu--the beach ball just keeps spinning.

Help! I’m just back from vacation and have about 2500 pics to upload and sort.

I hope that you are not trying to upload all 2500 photos all at once. This is a VERY big task...and will likely cause the beach ball problem. Do it in smaller batches.

It took the first batch from a san disk just fine. When I connected my iPhone, things glitched.

I still have two sandisks and an iPad to upload. Plus, possibly, the iPhone.

it was a 3 week vacation with two people taking tons of pictures.

Any help?

Try rebooting the computer. Then try uploading/downloading the photos. Sometimes this helps.

Nope!

I tried that last night, but tried it again anyway. I can’t access anything in iPhoto, since the ball starts immediately.

Damn this!

I upgraded iphoto. I didn’t know there was a free upgrade/update. It seems to be working! Yay!
