I am on a MacBook running OS 10.6.8. I am trying to directly burn photos to DVD without going through iPhoto, but I cannot see the drive in Finder, and it doesn't show up on the Disk Utility list. I know that my computer is recognizing the camera because the camera shows up in iPhoto and I can import the photos that way - but I'd rather not export them all individually to save them in non-iphoto-related formats!

The problem occurs with two different cameras (a Nikon and a Canon) and a SD card reader, but the USB port mounts an external hard drive and a jump drive just fine.

I've tried restarting.

Any suggestions?
