Thanks for the tip. iPhoto is not what I need since only deals with
Pictures and besides is a little bit "too user friendly" to me (creates
a shit load of subfolder and parasite files when you just want your
picture files). All I wanted was something to extract Pictures AND
movies from my S50. I think I found what I needed in Image Capture (
without iPhoto)...However, I would have sooooo much loved having just
another disk mounting on the the Desktop whenever I connect the camera...
anybody knows why this is no longer possible with the new Canon cameras ???
