Inserting a SD card no longer opens iPhoto. When I open iPhoto, it does not show the SD card in the left pane. This program has done this without a problem until recently. The preference under iPhoto is set to SD cards to open iPhoto. I have also gone to Utilities/Photo Capture and ensured that iPhoto was selected in the lower left corner. I am at wits ends because this should work automatically but is no longer doing so. Any answers out there?
A common fix for these type of issues is to reformatting the card with the camera and try inserting it again. Make sure you copy the photos from the SD Card to your computer first.
You can change this behavior by using Apple's Image Capture utility to set defaults for each device. (See Picture)
If this doesn't work your card is not recognized as a Photo Card
Open iPhoto, and then drag the SD card symbol that is on your desktop, into a folder in iPhoto (you can create a folder and name it whatever you want). Then iPhoto will import all the contents of that SD card!
