this happened to me when i got the mac... my camera was running on old drivers and so the card was an old format the mac couldn't see. download the pics if you can onto another pc that sees the camera (i used my old laptop that i knew recognised the camera) then downloaded the latest driver for the camera, reformatted the memory disk and now everything is hunkydory.... mac can see camera!!!
