EX1 not mounting with usb to mac pro

I've installed the SxS driver and the EX1 is not mounting with a usb cable to a mac pro..

Am I doing something wrong? I dont get any messages on the camera or anything nothing is happening.

Thanks for any help!

You don't need the SxS driver for USB transfers, but that probably isn't involved in your problem. You can safely un-install the driver if you like.

Okay, no offense, but I have to ask the obvious questions: Is there a card in the camera? Is the camera powered on? Can you mount other USB storage devices?

When you look in System Profiler (in Applications/Utilities) under the "USB" heading, does the camera appear in the list of USB devices? If you plug in your camera after launching System Profiler, you need to refresh (View->Refresh).

Yes to all the obvious questions no offense taken at all haha

So I got an update my friend (the owner of the camera) told be that someone somehow broke the usb port on the camera so I guess it doesn't work.

What other options do I have to get this thing to connect to my comp? I can't spend $250 on a card reader right now and I don't have access to a mac book pro. Is there any other options?

thanks!

Is the camera powered up in CAMERA mode or MEDIA mode? (I think it needs to be in MEDIA mode)
