I have a Canon S45 camera with lots of pictures on it. I also have an iBook, running OSX v. 10.3.9. Unfortunately, I don't have the software CD that came with the camera with me at the moment, and I don't know how to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer without it.
I've tried just connecting the camera to the computer with the USB cable, and the camera turns on, but it doesn't seem like the iBook is even recognizing that the camera is connected to it. I also tried the Canon website to see if I could download the software directly from them, but all they had was an updater, which wouldn't do anything unless the older version of the software was already installed.
Can somebody tell me how to get these pictures to my computer?
