    iPhoto crashing during import
    All of a sudden, my iPhoto 9.2 software on my MacBook Pro totally crashes every single time I try to import photos from my memory card. It has never done this before. It worked fine the last time I imported photos 2 or 3 days ago. Here is the error I keep getting. Any ideas? I'm using my Aperature software in the meantime, but I really prefer my iPhoto. I'm running the latest OS Lion.

    The first thing I would try is to run OnyX, letting it rebuild Launch Services. A good permission run (in Disk Utility) and a good old-fashioned restart wouldn't go amiss either. General maintenance, in other words.

    Let us know if that resolves the issue.

    Angry iPhoto crashes
    Hi,
    I got exactly the same problem. All suddenly iPhoto crashes when I try to import new photos, whatever the way used (from mail, copy&paste, camera, iPhone, etc...) I tried Onyx as you say, nothing different. iPhoto runs OK but becomes useless for the new photos...

    Same Problem Here
    Yep, all of sudden, same problem. iPhoto crashes when attempting to import photos. Of course I tried a reboot first off. No luck. This is really, really frustrating.

    Same problem here
    Same thing happening to me. iPhoto works until I either try to import new photos or until I turn on photo stream, then it crashes. Very frustrating. Have tried rebuilding my photo library and deleting the plist and do files. Nothing helps. Any other suggestions?

    Smile Found the Fix
    Check the crash report. If it says anything this file (3ivxvideocodec.component), then this is the fix for you. It worked for me... hope this helps!

    Fix that worked for me
    I did all the things mentionned and nothing worked.
    I updated perian (directly from perian web site) to 1.2.3 (from 1.1) and now iphoto is back! :-)

    i just subscribed just to give you this hint in case that will work for you.

    Just wanted to say that I subscribed just to say that your advice worked for me. Downloaded Perian 1.2.3 (free) and now iPhoto does not crash when importing photos. So happy. Thanks immensely.
