Image Capture vs Mounting USB drive

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have a Nikon 880 camera and I use Image Capture to archive the images. However, it refuses to download over half the images and I'm at a loss as to how to get them off there. Is there any way in OSX to mount the camera's drive as a USB disk so I could try dragging the suckers off there?

I used to be able to mount the camera in OS9, but I have a new G4 now and I've lost the Nikon Software CD

Any assistance in getting these valuable photos off the camera would be greatly appreciated!

G4 Mac OS 10.1.5

    It should mount as a HD in the Finder when you plug it in. Try it and see...

    Nope... the camera doesn't appear on the desktop or listed as a hard drive...

    Get a CF card reader. It will mount as a disk when you plug it in. It will save your camera's batteries. If you get a FireWire reader, transfers will be significantly faster as well.
