I Don't know about the Mac.... but from The Camera Raw Forum on Adobe's own site, most of the problems with Camera Raw not operating are usually to do with a camera's own software (i.e. Canon) superceding PS's own Plug -In. Try looking under Program files/adobe/PS CS/Plug-ins/file formats.. you should see the Camera Raw Plug in there.. If there is anything from Canon try Cutting and Pasting it to your desktop (that way you can restore it if needs be later.) AND look in PS CS / Photoshop only/plug-ins.... Thats where I found the little monster that was stopping me operating PS CS Camera Raw ( In my case it was Nikon!!!!... GRR)

Hope this might help ;)

i installed canon dpp and other utilities after ps cs but ps cs still worked. wondering if some ps cs prefs got messed.

nightwolf, move the ps cs folder away and reinstall ps cs. see if that helps.

If you are those who plugs in your camera directly into your Mac, you won't be able to read any RAW files outta it except using Canon's utilities.

Get a card reader and ur problem's good as solved.

Apparently if u plug in a 300D or a 10D directly into your Mac, it doesn't mount as an external drive in both the GUI and terminal. One will notice that the transfer speed would be very slow.

Juz pop ur CF into a cardreader, and it'll mount as an external drive and u can see all your RAW files, JPEG files, etc. And you can start processing your RAW files! And skip Canon's software. There's a utility called 'Image Capture' under Applications-Utility, use that to transfer your RAW and JPEG files instead. Make sure u check your preferences to retain all the EXIF tags.

nw75, u need my card reader? ;) Works very well with Macs, juz tell me if u want it.
