My camera is supported by my the current version of iPHOTO.

Two issues: I've imported 600+ photos in the past week. After importing I can view them, but the next time I open iPHOTO, I cannot locate them? I've checked everywhere???

Also, I shoot in RAW+JPEG, yet after importing the files, an error message displays that the 'file format is not compatible': ARW  (RAW files form a Sony Camera that IS on the list of supported cameras. What am I doing wrong??


MacBook Air (13-INCH, MID 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    What camera is it? What version of iPhoto? What version of the OS?

    As a Test:

     

     

    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'

     

     

    Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

    So call me dumb :~)

    When I set the date on the camera Sony RX100, I set the year as 2012 (bought it in Jan 2013). So All of the pocs were wayyyy back (a year back) and that is why I couldn't find them.

     

    As for the RAW files, I still cannot import them to my iPHOTO library (iPhoto 9 version 8.1.2). The same thing occurs on my Mac Airbook with iPhoto 11. I tired, "

    Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'

      Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?" That didn't solve the issue.

     

    However, when I import into Adobe Lightroom, I have no issues??

    You'll need 10.7.5 plus iPhoto 11 v9.4 or later to import the Raws from this camera. You'll need to apply the Digitial Camera Update 4.01.
