Re: Why do I have to eject the NEX from my Mac?

I've never connected my NEX directly to my mac, but I suspect it has to do with the USB connection mode (found under the setup menu). If it's set to mass storage, OS X will treat the camera as a card reader and mount the SD card as a drive. If you don't eject the camera/card properly you'll not only get the error message, but you risk damaging the SD card.
