Ganon G15 on iMac
I just purchased a Canon Powershot G15. Very happy about the size, little by little I will go through all it's features. BUT:
To download the pictures, I can only take the card off and put it in the SD card slot (thing that people with some Mac models cannot do) or use iPhoto.
For some reasons I do not understand, if I connect the G15 with an USB cable, the card is not visible. When I connect it, the bundled software "camera Window" starts automatically, but then says "no camera was found". The other bundled software, "Image browser DX" does not see it.
With my previous/other cameras, Sony V3, Olympus eVolt, Panasonic G1, connection with USB cable always made the card appear on the desktop. With the G15, no.
Why is this? I do not like to use iPhoto, I am not in control of where I store the downloaded pictures. Must I always take the card off? Why?
I installed all the bundled software with the "easy install" option, I did not find any driver on Canon website
I have the latest imac with OSX 10.8.4
