I need to load my pictures onto my new macbookpro but i hate this computer wont read it?

Anyidea what this computer is missing? the memory card wont even fit!

ANything i need to download?

I have had 3 Olympus cameras, all of which transfer pics just fine to my Macbook Air and other Macs.

What exactly is happening? Be specific about "won't read it".

After you plug in the camera with the USB cable, look at the screen on the camera. Is there a message with options on the camera screen to select PC? if so, make sure PC is highlighted and click the OK button on the camera.

Have you manually opened Image Capture (it comes preloaded on the Mac under Applications)? You can usually get at the pictures through Image Capture. You can set the preferences on Image Capture to automatically launch the Image Capture app when you connect the camera.

Have you tried using the card with a card reader? Does the card reader work? I had a Targus card reader suddenly quit working on me and had to buy a new one.
