Just got an iPad - trying to download photos and small videos to the iMac so that I have more space on the iPad.  Whenever I try to import all the photos, etc. from the iPad, iPhoto quits unexpectedly after a few minutes.  When I re-open iPhoto on the iMac, I always get a prompt "we found 1874 photos in the iPhoto Library that were not imported, would you like to import them now?"  Same problem occurs, then more photos listed on the prompt the next time...  Any suggestions?  (My OS is Snow Leopard, if that helps...?)  I just updated from Tiger to Snow Leopard, but the iPhoto problem has carried over...

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Go to your Pictures Folder and find the iPhoto Library there. Right (or Control-) Click on the icon and select 'Show Package Contents'. A finder window will open with the Library exposed.



    Look there for a Folder called 'Import' or 'Importing'.



    Drag it to the Desktop. *Make no other changes*.



    Start iPhoto. Does that help?



    If it does then look inside that folder on your desktop. Does it contain anything you want? If not you can trash the folder.
