My digital camera is not showing up as a removable drive on my desktop -- iPhoto and Image Capture both recognize my camera, and it's properly plugged in. Is there any way to make my mac recognize it as a drive? Thanks so much for your help.
Some cameras simply won't show up as a disk like that.
There really isn't anything that can be done about it.
As long as you are able to transfer your photos via Image Capture or iPhoto then it is working properly.
