I'll try just connecting my camera and see how that works before I install the zoombrowser software. I do check for current drivers, but if I didn't find any or any that said "for mac os x" I wanted to know if it was safe to try installing from the cd. Also, I have a few programs - like a Russian language course for win95 and mac - that I'd like to try and see if they'll work.
Edit: I connected my camera via its USB cable, but nothing happened. If it acted as a mass storage drive, it would show up on the desktop as a drive, right? The canon download site did say that no drivers were needed. I used the Image Browser [zoombrowser on the pc] to download pics on the pcs.
There's a firmware update available, but that's to use pictbridge, which I don't so I wasn't going to do that update. I looked up PTP in wikepedia. It didn't say when it was implemented. I bought the camera in 2004. Any chance I do need that firmware update?
