My iMac is not recognising my camera, an Olympus E-PM2, after previously doing so. Help!

iMac (27-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.5), Olympus PEN E-PM2

    Does Image capture (in your applications folder) see it? does it mount to the desktop? Do you have a USB card reader?

     

    Using one of those methods you want to get the photos off the memory card and import them into iPhoto and then reformat the card using the camera's format command

     

    a best practice to is to never have any computer program (including iPhoto) delete the photos from the card but to import the photos and keep them and then after at least one successful backup cycle has completed and the reformat the card --  I use three very large (32 GB) cards in rotation so I do not reformat for typically a year or more giving me one more long term backup of my photos

    BTW - are you shooting RAW or JPEG?

     

    RAW for the PM2 requires the 4.02 RAW suppor tupdate - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4757?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

     

    What version of iPhoto do yo have?
