I have a mac mini1,1 running 10.6.8 I have an iphone 4 running 6.1.3.
Using image capture. I can import photos from the phone to a USB stick.
Some, but not many, .MOV files can be moved as well. No pattern that I am aware of as to why not.

1.) How can I get the .MOV files to a USB stick

2.) The Delete option is never in focus for use even after a photo selection.
Any reasons why? It would be REALLY nice to be able to delete images/movies w/o having to return to the phone to do it. Note:if the Delete after import box is checked Image capture does delete them from the phone.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Ankhseeker, are you attempting to do this as a one step process or do you import them to the Macintosh HD first?
I would have imported them to my HD using Image Capture first, used Preview or Quick View to edit/erase then moved the remaining to the USB stick. I probably would have had two folders on the USB stick, one for stills and the other for .MOV files.
Lastly, I have to ask. Why are you still using OS 10.6.8 and iOS 6? Not being critical just curious. Snow Leopard was a great OS but with no support for security updates it is very vulnerable online, especially these days. Yosemite as far as I know will run on MacMini 2009 onwards and iOS 7 is much better than iOS 6.
I too have an iPhone 4 which is running iOS 7 and Yosemite v10.10.2 on my 2012 MacBook Pro. I have no problems with this other than the Hand Off feature does not work between the phone and laptop.
I would advise bypassing Mavericks all together except for some application incompatibility it is an all round better OSX.

Hi Rod, I am an aquarius that dislikes change. I have been very happy with my old mac mini, and also have a mbp running mavericks. I love it. I can't say the same about the newer os's though. My wife has an iphone 5 and I dislike most things about it. She runs ios7. It is also harder to see the screen because I am a victim of lasik and contrast issues showed up year later. I suppose that when I am forced to upgrade, I will just get another mac and learn it, but for now.....
Yosemite doesn't excite me at all.
Thanks for the advice.. I will try moving them to the mini first.
