I just acquired a nifty little camera for next to nothing, and it works just fine... With a PC. I plug the USB cable into a Mac, and I get a big fat nothing.
The camera is a Philips PJ44416 "Micro slim digital camera." It came (new in the package) with only a USB cable and a lanyard; no software at all. Philips website has no reference to it at all, which is a bit weird.
Actually, it does show up in System Profiler (10.3.9) as a "Dual-Mode Digital Camera", Speed: Up to 12Mb/sec, Product ID: 271($10f), Vendor ID: 2362. But neither iChat nor iPhoto recognize the camera, and the Finder doesn't mount its 8MB of storage.
Anybody know of any tricks to get this puppy to work with iPhoto on a Mac?
