I was taking photos with my old Olympus D510 when one of my damaged knees went out. I stumbled backward and the camera flew forward, landing on its lens. Well, it was five years old and only 2 mpix anyway. So I bought a new Nikon Coolpix L1. 6.2 mpix, better LCD screen, nicer photos, and cheaper than my Olympus was.
When I hooked the Olympus up to my PC it showed up as an external drive. I could easily open a single photo and download it onto my hard disc. (I never hooked it up to the Mac, and it’s too late now.) I tried connecting the Nikon to the PC, but a driver couldn’t be found. (I installed PictureProject, which came with the camera.) In any case, I don’t use the PC anymore.
When I connect the Nikon to the Mac it does not show up as an external drive (like an iPod, for example). I can access it with iPhoto, but not in the way I want. I can load the pictures into iPhoto, but only as a batch. Since I’ve already downloaded 100+ I’d rather not do it again. I only want to grab one photo.
How do I configure my PowerBook G4 such that I can access the camera as an external drive from which I can select single photos, delete individual photos, etc.?
