driver conflict?

by sabar / July 10, 2005 11:21 PM PDT

My powerbook superdrive does not function anymore. It's a software conflict though: after reinstalling tiger (after formatting) everything worked again. When i statrted to add my software the problem reoccurred. As there were problems uploading photo's to the computer, i suppose the conflict is between iPhoto, Imagebrowser (Canon) and Photoshop 8.

Does anybody have similar experiences?
Does anybody have a clue how to tackle this problem?

The first thing I would do is get rid of the Imagebrowser. I assume it came with the camera. It should not be needed if you are using iPhoto. How are you uploading photo's to the computer?
You might want to check the Photoshop version too. It is either Version 7 or CS.

I have been preferring Imagebrowser as it was very rapid, even with camera's RAW format. Only the new version of iPhoto (5) supports the the RAW format, but is very slow,perhaps because it creates it's own jpeg of each RAW photo(or because it is part of the problem). When problems started to occur (the upload window 'camera window' did not occur automatically) I changed to iPhoto. Also, Photoshop CS does not allow to upload photos.

Apart from imageBrowser I also installed Canon's File Viewer utility andDigital Photo Professional, both of them programs to edit Raw photos.

My problem is: how do I remove ImageBrowser completely from my computer, as there is no deinstallation program available.

Drag the folder to the trash.
Do a search for anything associated with imagebrowser, prefs etc, and delete it.

That should do it.
If this problem did not exist before you installed the extra's that came with the camera, you might want to consider iLife 05, with the new improved iPhoto, which will allow editing RAW.
Photoshop CS also allows RAW editing. The lack of automatic importing of photo's from your card in Photoshop is not a show stopper.
Simply drag the images from the mounted camera card into any folder that you like. Open them in Photoshop as normal

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
