When I look at iPhoto app in finder it says version 8.1.2, 272.4MB Created 8/24/10
I thought that 8.1.2 was the previous version...
If I go back to the old version, do I delete this one and re-install the old one?
What are the steps to take to make sure I don't make things worse?

I have this problem too. Although connecting and turning on my camera opened iPhoto, I don't see the camera icon in the sidebar. I do see the camera icon in the sidebar in the Finder. I've used iPhoto for a long time, including with this camera, and I've never seen this problem before upgrading to '11.
I installed the upgrade and it has not fixed my problems of being able to import photos.
So, I decided to start again.
I deleted iPhoto (2011) even though it says it is 8.1.2
I reinstalled iPhoto from my iLife '11 install DVD. It still says it is version 8.1.2
Now iPhoto hangs and won't even launch...
I ran the upgrade on the re-installed iPhoto '11
It still says version 8.1.2
iPhoto '11 upgraded crashes upon opening...
Whoever does QA for iPhoto should be shot.
I have a similar problem. My iPhone showed up in iPhoto. When I try to import pictures it will go through them one by one, seeming to import them. When it gets to the end a pop up appears that says the import couldn't be performed because they weren't compatible. The pictures were all taken on the iPhone and are (and are listed as) .JPGs
My parents called me with this issue with their digital camera and iPhoto 11 right before I came across it.
Photos from my iPad import fine.
Try the following:
1 - download and launch BatChmod .
2 - drag the iPhoto application into the BatChmod window.
3 - set the ownership and privileges settings to that shown in this screenshot:
4 - launch iPhoto and see if you can import now.
Thanks Old Toad!
I followed your advice and I can now import photos into my iPhoto '11*
Thanks very much!!!
I inserted my username for "username" in your example as I did not see the value "username" in the list...
*Drag and drop photos works. Import Photos via the iPhoto menu works.
But iPhoto still hangs when I attach my camera. It just has the spinning thing in the middle of the blank grey screen. In the Force Quit Applications window it says iphoto is "not responding".
After a couple minutes it crashes...
So, progress, but i'm not out of the woods yet...
Can somebody say that this is a general problem? And if Apple is doing anything to solve it?
I'm not sure if I have the same problem, as the import works, but as soon as I exit iPhoto and restart I don't see any of the new photos. The photos itself are not lost, they are within iPhoto structure under 2010/11/....
It looks like the library itself cannot be written to.
