iPhoto says iPhone Camera Roll files can't be imported as they are 'unrecognised format' although are jpg. 


Aperture and Bridge can't import them either so deduce problem is with iPhone Camera or Camera Roll. 


Can import files to my MacPro from my DSLR and compact cameras - to iPhoto, Aperture and Bridge whether Raw or JPG.


iPhoto shows 221 imported photos and 357 un-imported photos as grey boxes.


iPhone software current version.  Have tried restarting.


Mac Pro using 10.6.8, 8GB Ram and masses of HD space - running very well.  Application software fully up-to-date.




Many thanks.

Mac Pro (Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8), 6-core Intel Xeon 2.66 Ghz Dual Pro
